Soundiron are proud to present the absolute pinnacle in professional choral scoring solutions: The Olympus Symphonic Choir. The Olympus Collection is a combination of the massive Mars and Venus men’s and women’s choir libraries, together as a complete set at an incredible value.
With Olympus, Soundiron are aiming for versatility. Instead of focusing on one language, they offer both Slavonic (Russian) and classic Latin content, so composers can explore even more flavour and realism. Soundiron spent 10 days in their favourite church recording the 33-voice women’s chorus and 30-voice men’s divisi sections, along with bass, tenor, alto and soprano soloists. Both choruses feature top notch talent from Volti, San Francisco Symphony Chorus and the San Francisco Choral Society, capturing all of the delicate nuances of the female human voice. Olympus is all about power, clarity and fluidity. Both men’s and women’s sections include 2 microphone positions (stage and hall), providing composers the flexibility to incorporate the brilliant, natural sound of Olympus easily into any stereo or surround mix.

Mars Epic Male Choir
The Mars Symphonic Men's Choir is a comprehensive male choral ensemble library designed for professional film and television scoring, symphonic arrangement and music production. It is the most complete and detailed men's choir sample library available anywhere, with a sound and playability that cannot be matched. Mars was designed as the first offering in our now widely acclaimed Olympus choral series. To build this titan, we took everything we had learned from engineering, developing and programming previous choir projects we worked on over the years at Tonehammer (Requiem, Liberis) and applied them here. Our goal was to provide a level of total flexibility, deep functionality and total sonic power that professional composers need.
Mars covers a wide range of Latin, Russian (Slavonic) and Pure Vowel content, with a full set of chromatic articulations including sustains, marcatos, staccatos, true legato, clusters, falls, swells, effects and a trio of stellar male soloists. We recorded over 10 days at Montclair Presbyterian, high in the Oakland Hills, with a 30-voice hand-picked group of SF Symphony Chorus, SF Opera, SF Choral Society and Volti singers. It includes a pair of simplified wide stereo mic positions (stage and hall), giving you the flexibility to incorporate the full-bodied sound of Mars easily and efficiently into your mix.
Venus Symphonic Women's Choir
Soundiron are proud to present the latest chapter in our series of powerful, flexible and exquisitely recorded virtual choral libraries: The Venus Symphonic Women's Choir. We took all we learned from recording previous choirs and applied them here to make certain Venus is extraordinarily playable, diverse and stunningly beautiful.
With Venus, we are aiming for versatility. Instead of focusing on one language, we offer both Slavonic (Russian) and classic Latin content, so composers can explore even more flavor and realism. We spent 10 days in our favorite church recording the 33-voice women's chorus, featuring top notch talent from Volti, SF Symphony Chorus and the SF Choral Society, capturing all of the delicate nuances of the female human voice. Venus is all about power, clarity and fluidity. It includes 2 mic positions (stage and hall) so composers have the flexibility to incorporate the brilliant, natural sound of Venus easily into their mix. Venus has risen in the night sky, to join her men's choral counterpart, The Mars Symphonic Men's Choir.
