Good question! Funny as it may sound like, the boys were more disciplined! While we were recording the girl solos Alex, our sample mapper, had to (by demand) play the rest of the singers the "Pen Pineapple Pen" video in our studio office for about 20 minutes - just to keep the girls occupied with something while we were wrapping up the solo...
... now he knows there are worse things than mapping in Kontakt! :)
Be grateful they didn't want to play Pokémon... :dancedance:

Im really looking forward to this! Love the idea of having two separate libraries. Ive always felt ripped off with Liberis, so hopefully this will be its replacement.

Hello!

Whispers, risers, clusters, etc.

You can build your own clusters with our Polyphonic True Legato as well as Agile Legato. That's one of the reasons we developed it. It allows you total freedom to do whatever you like musically.

We don't have any whispers or risers in Arva yet. We instead focused on a big soloists section. The whispers in Freyja are veeeeery similar in timbre to the sound of children whispering. Our concept for Wotan, Freyja and Arva was that each of them adds something unique. All of our libraries are always created from a sound perspective in mind.

Also we wanted to make the library affordable for you guys. Two seperately recorded (still in the same hall) children choirs with divisi sections as well as tons of legato and soloists content adds up to the production costs tremendously. There is a reason no dev has done it before.

I think nobody of you would like to see Arva being sold for 800 or a thousand bucks, right?

Full articulations and patch list will be posted later today. Stay tuned for some exciting stuff!

Hi, is that the Star of David?.. if so, what's the connection to a children's choir? Thx!
