This is an in-depth look at East West Symphonic Choir – an app that lets you create convincing choral virtual vocals.

About East West Symphonic Choir

Imagine typing words into your computer, in any language, and hearing a world class Symphonic Choir sing those words in any key(s) you play “live” on your keyboard controller! Well imagine no more, that’s exactly what this revolutionary “award-winning” virtual instrument does. In addition, this is the first 24-bit Choir virtual instrument to include three simultaneous stereo mic setups (close, stage and hall), so users can mix any combination of mic positions to control ambience. The Choirs were recorded in the same concert hall, by the same team as the EastWest/Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra and blend perfectly with EWQLSO.

To achieve the feel of a live concert hall performance, each instrument and section was recorded with three mic positions: close, stage (conductor‘s position) and hall. By selecting different mic positions, users can mix these sounds together to create any kind of natural ambience their project requires. This eliminates the need for artificial reverb.

The Symphonic Choirs Expansion (Voices of the Apocalypse content) was recorded separately, at 24-bit resolution with a single mic position.

WordBuilder is the word building software for both MAC and PC that enables Symphonic Choirs and Symphonic Choirs Expansion users to type in words for the Choirs to sing. This revolutionary software also includes a pop-down menu that includes popular pre-built phrases that you can load instantly. This is a real time saver for those on a tight deadline. The phrases have been optimized for each Choir. The phrases menu is customizable so you can add your own phrases to WordBuilder for quick and easy access. This is the most powerful vocals solution available.

  1. This software DOES NOT DO WHAT IT SAYS. You cannot simply type words in and hear a choir sing what you type. Even after tweaking each phonetic there is no way to get this product to make the realistic sounding choir sing realistic words.

    If you want something that can produce the sound of a dyslexic choir singing noises it is for you. If you want to your audience to be able to understand the words, hire a real choir. The demos are all in Latin so that the unintelligible words sound real. A great idea badly executed.

    This is an awful product and the customer service is abominable.

  2. Well, well, I should have gotten hold of this review before I got the software. At this stage I have no clue what it really sounds like, and what kind of effort needs to be put into working with it, but I do have lots of experience of the abominable support/customer service. I’m sending mine back, simply because I can think of many other ways in which I can “waste” my hard-earned money.
