Featuring a blockbuster female and male choir with unprecedented dynamics that will instantly transform your next project into a cinematic masterpiece HOLLYWOOD CHOIRS gives voice to a new generation of powerful cinematic vocals with unprecedented dynamics and shocking realism that unleashes a new world of choral possibilities.

HOLLYWOOD CHOIRS also includes WordBuilder 2. WordBuilder allows the composer to type in any word or phrase and have it sung by the choir. Additional phonemes were recorded for Hollywood Choirs resulting in improved realism and support for more languages. For convenience you can now sync WordBuilder to your DAW so it follows the track.

    This is what the EastWest producers Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix say about the tantalising new creation of HOLLYWOOD CHOIRS:

    "This is the third choir EastWest/Quantum Leap has sampled," says EastWest producer Doug Rogers, "we learnt a lot from the previous productions and Hollywood Choirs is the culmination of that experience. In particular, the choirs' ability to sing any word or phrase has been significantly improved resulting in much more realism; and there are many more sound options to enable the user to sculpt the sound to their requirements."

    "In the past 12 years, there have been many attempts by others to improve on what EastWest/Quantum Leap achieved with Symphonic Choirs," says EastWest producer Nick Phoenix, "Small improvements were made to various aspects of choir sampling, but the emphasis has been on pre-recorded and severely limited phrases. If composers are not tired of hearing the same faux Latin phrases repeated over and over, those listening certainly are. No single choir virtual instrument has managed to deliver a fluid, intuitive and great sounding choir that was capable of singing any words in any language, soft or loud ... until now."
