I am notating and listening to a lot of choir parts and would like some advice on what sound library you might recommend.
Dorico comes with Halion Sonic SE which I don’t mind, but becomes unusable when you add a piano part. The vocal parts and the piano parts are not played in sync.
Native Instruments has a nice choir in the Kontakt Factory Library. The piano and vocal parts are in sync. The issue I have is that the range of the parts is rather restricted at the both the top and bottom of the range. I can ‘fix’ this by copying samples between notes to fill the notes I need, but that is a lot of work. I haven’t worked out how to save the changes. Maybe I should?
I invested in Olympus Elements and am not quite happy with the sounds. They all appear harsh and don’t follow volume settings (f, p, etc) very well.
Playing chords is a pain because you have to manually toggle an option to allow for extra part voices every time you open the project.
So my question is: Any recommendation of a choir sound library that would do everything I need given my issues?
