    I'm confused. Is there a good library of vocal soloists that includes tenors and basses? Mostly I just see female vocals. Also "cinematic" is fine [I work in movies and we record actual vocalists and choirs]. But for my work, which requires making demo mock-ups, I need solo vocals - soprano through bass - that are dry, that I can then manipulate as needed.

    SoundIron's Voices of Rapture has solo soprano, alto, Tenor, bass, "ensemble" and (true to form) a few processed instruments.

    The Soprano is a bit "operatic" in comparison to the other soloists, but still excellent.

    I have it but I'm hugely dissapointed. There is no dynamic crossfade for it.

    I have EW Voices of Passion, EW Voices of Empire and @TARI's ERA II Medieval Legends: Vocal Codex.

    Of the three, I'd recommend the latter. Though obviously it's not classical solo voices, if that's is what you're after.

    I use Jenifer from 8dio and all the Soundiron stuff. Voices of Gaia is really good

    Soundiron has bass vocal library, i had for a year or two, and used it just once:) it sounds ok, but the legato is a bit odd sometimes.

    I've yet to try a solo vocal library that dont sound awkward and offputting to me. I guess the realivox libraries come the closest, but still. I try to record vocals whenever possible. Even if its from fiverr, it still adds so much to the track compared to samples (imo).

    Shevannai is great but I much prefer the "Celtia" singer from Eduardo Tarilonte's "Vocal Codex" (which someone else already mentioned). Ever since that other lib came out I have only used Shevannai for the whispers and spoken phrases patches. To me Shevannai on average sounds a little less realistic, though it is a bit more robust feature wise I'd say when comparing directly to Celtia. That said, Vocal Codex has additional content beyond Celtia, all of which -- in my opinion -- is quite nice as well. Particularly for anything ethnic or stuff with an "early" or medieval sound.
