Ethnic Bulgarian singing is something really unique. This special type of "throat" singing gives a new and interesting timbre that is not typical for choir ensembles. This is why Strezov Sampling decided that this requires a special approach. After 2 years of work Strezov Sampling now offers the Complete and definitive edition of their critically acclaimed Rhodope Ethnic Bulgarian Choir including both the Core module and Expansion A at a no brainer price.

Last but not least - the unique timbre of Ethnic Bulgarian singers
The 1.1 Syllabuilder
Blending traditional phrasebuilding with the deep editing options of wordbuilding the Syllabuilder engine is the ultimate tool for producing virtual choir mockups. Rhodope Ethnic Bulgarian Choir Core and Complete features this powerful tool, which has been in constant developement for more than two years.
True Polyphonic Legato and FX
Rhodope Ethnic Bulgarian Choir Expansion A features three unique true legato singing styles, which are most commonly used in ethnic bulgarian choir singing. All three types are included within one patch allowing the user to switch between different legato types on the fly using different velocity values and the sustain pedal. But wait, this doesn´t mean that you are limited to one legato style at a time! Due to our Overlapping notes script it is possible to overlap different legato transitions within one performance and if writing whole polyphonic arrangements is your goal you can easily do that just using the same patch. The special polyphonic legato script developed with the special needs of this unique singing style in mind makes writing choral arrangements easier than ever before.
"Great Authentic Bulgarian Choir Sound in Both the Core Module and Expansion A; Intuitive Interface." AskAudio
"The specific yet sought after need for the sound of a true Bulgarian choir is brilliantly met by the Rhodope Bundle and its stellar tone. The power and ease of use of the Core Syllabuilder Module makes it a joy to use, and you cannot argue with the beauty and the energy of the Legato+FX Expansion. The scripting works seamlessly behind the scenes, and the polyphonic legato is so well implemented, I almost forgot it was there!"filmandgamecomposers.com (9.7 / 10)
