Building words with Soundiron Olympus Choir

Hi,

I would like to use the Mars+Venus choir to make a virtual choir sing. By exploring the PolySustain chants, the Marcato/Sustain Builder, the Phrase Builder, and the single Vowels and Staccato elements, I've started to think that the best way to simulate a singing choir is to remotely control the Marcato/Sustain Builder.

This instrument works this way: you select a vowel category (Ah, Eh, Ee, Ih, Oh, Oo, MM), an attack syllable (Sah, Ya, Crux…), a sustain vowel (Ah, Oh…), an ending vowel/phonem (Aw, Oos…). So, if you want 'Sanctus', you can remotely select the elements to form two syllables:

- Sah-Ah-Ah
- Doo-Oo-Oos

One after the other, you will get the pair of syllables 'Sah-Doos', sounding somewhat similar to the word you want to have sung.

Syllables in a word will morph with the X-Blending of the Low and High layers.

Is this the correct approach? To me, it seems the faster and most flexible, with the available tools.

I would say it is not even incredibly bad. Building this thing is however made difficult by how Logic doesn't allow to label CCs, and how Soundiron makes assigning CCs to controllers quite laborious.

I must amend my statement. Assigning CCs to each controller in Soundiron's Mars is very easy. In Kontakt, you open the Browser > MIDI Automation pane, and drag the desired controllers onto the user interface's knobs.

As for the lack of custom CC labeling in Logic, I solved it by reassigning the default controllers to something more readable. Therefore, the Attack Syllable knob is controlled by the Attack Time CC, the Sustain Vowel knob by the Timbre CC, and so on.
