Lacrimosa is produced by Academy Award, TEC and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer and Producer, Troels Folmann. The Lacrimosa Choir consists of 70 Basses, 60 Tenors, 40 Altos and 30 Sopranos – in essence following the concept of a pyramid like structure – with a rich heavy bottom and shining bright top. It generates a perfect balance – where the deeper/lower parts of the choir are capable of matching the shiny/higher ranges. The True Layered Legato contains velocity based legatos – meaning you get a completely smooth legato experience depending on how hard you play the keys – from very soft and slurred to fast, strong and epic. The new advanced Multi-Vowels allows you to create complete realistic sentences for the choir. The multi-vowels were recorded in different dynamics, so you can have the choir go from soft to larger then life epic. We also created a new advanced word/phrase sequencer that allows you to sequence advanced strings of words and phrases.
Lacrimosa also contains wealth of deep-sampled core articulations, including 24 different staccatos, 8 sustain types at multiple dynamics, 11 different power marcatos, 10 different expressive arcs, a large section of non-tonal vowels that allows you to create new words by blending muted sounds with the tonals. Lacrimosa also include Choral FX and our new Chaos FX system.
Lacrimosa Choir was recorded in one of the greatest symphony halls in the world and contains 96Khz, 3 microphone positions (Mixed, Decca, Far). The custom built UI system for Lacrimosa was built from scratch and contains over 35.000 lines of code giving you the ultimate experience in ease, flexibility and playability, including our new hyper-flexible word/phrase builder.
The Lacrimosa Choir is designed for epic music and is the largest choir ever sampled. The 200 piece choir is comprised of 70 Basses, 60 Tenors, 40 Altos and 30 Sopranos – in essence following the concept of a pyramid like structure – with a rich heavy bottom and shining bright top. Lacrimosa sits incredibly well with large epic orchestrations, but also in more traditional symphonic context. The Lacrimosa Choir was truly recorded with 200 singers and not by triple-tracking a smaller ensemble, which gives a notably different sound
Lacrimosa contains a brand new Word Sequencer that allows you to build words and phrases. The Word Sequencer to create complicated sequence of syllables, consonants, multi-vowels and non-tonal sounds. You can sequence up to 64 different articulations and create highly complicated sentences of words. The builder also allows you to randomize sequences, assign advanced controls and we added non-tonal consonants on top of the keyboard for additional sculpting.
Lacrimosa features our next-generation true layered legato, which means that the velocity pressure of your keyboard will trigger different legato transitions. The softer you play – the more gentle and slurred the transition is and the harder you play – the more fast and stronger the legato transition becomes. The end-result is a complete smooth and playable experience. The choir simply just sings the way you want it and with both true layered legato and multiple dynamics – its simply just a joy to play and hear.
