Magnus Choir VSTi


Overview

Magnus Choir is a virtual instrument plug-in which can be used to create natural and synthetic choirs, using a combination of synthesis and sampling

The male and female choruses combine to form a mixed chorus, featuring the classic SATB (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) structure: women sing Soprano and Alto, while men sing Tenor and Bass

Covering the spectrum of choirs, vocal textures and choral pads, they are combined with an advanced sampling engine and synthesizing techniques which make it a versatile instrument, full of expression capabilities. DSP engine delivers a new level of realism in digital sound creation...ShamiKoto Virtual Koto and Shamisen for macOS: Audio Units and VST for macOS ↓ KONTAKT Sample Library (.nki) ↓ Logic EXS24 Sample Library ↓
