    Finally someone sampled a Cirrus SR22!! Hope it has in-built Leslie-simulation.

    On the flipside, Cirrus could be a reference to a Spitfire cloud subscription service. That seems more likely based on name alone. Just a thought. :rolleyes:

    They certainly have enough libraries to make a subscription service viable. It would be a great way to cater to the try-before-you-buy crowd.

    Best,

    quantum7 1 more year until I turn 50...then it's all over.

    I doubt that would happen unless they ported all their libraries to their new sample player engine.

    Now I know what that is. A true analog recorded sitcom choir laughing background library where you have 2 sections of groups:

    1. Men

    - Longs with senza vib & con vib, and woop di woop vib.
    - Shorts sligthly off (random Words, randomly edited anyways..but works) - Laughing..
    - Long expressivo growl tremolo (agressive laughing)
    - Effects like Burps, coughs (Bonus!!)

    2. Women

    - Longs with 8va senza woo di woop for topend, Woop di woop no vib, expressivo vip do dip, molto contrems 8va (harmonics enhancer)

    - Shorts tight (definitive range up to C5, with word laugh creator (can also do whine impression)

    - Longs growl trems

    - No Bonus..:(

    3. FULL SECTION

    Men + Women:

    - Full Triple Forte Laughter Randomizer Patch (for ultimate drama control for your sitcom)
    - Both in Shorts and long articulations

    Available Mics:

    Spectator Mic
    Stage Mic
    Toilette Mic
    Mixer Control Mic!
    Boss Mic (yeah..) - Thats the black stool mic (only in the proffessional version).

    Good night!

    Damn! I need a women-burping patch for a looming project deadline. Is Orchestral Tools worth a look?

    Visiting "good old" Cirrus logic (www.cirrus.com), I noticed that Cirrus' tag-line is "Audio experts in a voice connected world". Now that Spitfire has taken venture capital, it all makes sense: do a reverse take-over of Cirrus Logic, pivot into a takeover of Apple and Google, and teach Siri and the Google lady to sing. Let Deepmind synthesize the rest. :geek:

    Cirrus is a genus of atmospheric cloud generally characterized by thin, wispy strands, giving the type its name from the Latin word cirrus, meaning a ringlet or curling lock of hair. This cloud can form at any altitude between and above sea level. The strands of cloud sometimes appear in tufts of a distinctive form referred to by the common name of "mares' tails".

    Thinking this is Albion VI

    Don't say that, please! The Albion Universe is complete. And I don't even have Loegria yet.

    I want a choir, dangit! Been awfully patient...up until now. The gloves come off after Oct 2.

    All this talk of "mares" tails, and Christian's recent video with Jake Jackson = this is a reverb plug...obviously!

    Many of us thought Apex was a new library. This could be another branded sales event.

    Apex was the highest point. How to top that? Go into the clouds, I guess. Could be another 50% deal. But which library?

    Last time the sale on Tundra made sense to me as it seemed at the time that HZS would maybe make Tundra appear partly redundant.

    Christian made a comment in his latest vlog about rumours Spitfire had recorded a Choir which given his sense of humour pretty much guarantees this isn’t it!

    Or maybe that’s the code name for the legato hotfix + staccato samples package for SStS.
    Ok ok enough of it...

    I'm beginning to think The Choir is a stalled enterprise, possibly due to technical over reach (which for some time bedeviled EW's ambitious choir) or some intractable complication perhaps not technical in nature.

    Considering the expenditure which must have been made over such a long period, its absence does not bode well for those of us who yearn for a truly great choir.

    Just crying in my beer, ignore me. I think I'll go play some Locrian sets in Dominus.

    Maybe somebody will sample these guys. Would love to have an exquisite small choir library.

    Didn't even get the mountain right :/ but it sure was fun and a great chance to grab tundra too.

    That said, I'm smelling choir announcement hzs style here. Christian wouldn't bring it up for no reason

    Talking about the choir, did you see Christian and the team flew to LA to film Eric some days ago?
