You don't get direct control over the rhythm in which the syllables of the phrases are sung (although they are tempo synced), and it can take a while to open the patches (as is the case with any large library); you can get around the latter by freezing the track once you're happy with it. Also, you'll need the full version of Kontakt.

On the plus side, It really is a beautiful sounding choir, and you do get phrases with different syllable counts; the arcs also sound really good in my opinion. Also keep in mind that this would be more suited for quiet/calm/emotional moods, rather than something bombastic.

If you add a little something extra during your purchase, you can take advantage of their custom bundle maker promotion:

They have a section of $50 and under; there's some quite nice stuff there, but if you're looking for the absolute cheapest, you can get Bottles for $2.

The Bottles are great! I've bought them at least twice!

If you can push the boat out a tiny bit more, there are a few instruments at $8, including Supercluster, Windchimes, and Clay Vase

What about Bottles Instrument for Kontakt at $2? ;)

And there are some try-packs at $4 which are  very limited packs of full versions.

Mentioned Bottles already a bit earlier 😉

Good point about the try-packs though - guess I was trying to point out some typically unusual instruments that might add a new dimension

Unfortunately, you can't combine coupons.  :(

I also like the Seahorse.  But I think that is a bit more.  Besides single hits, it has some nice arp-y loops? Not really loops as it will continue as long as the midi note is drawn.  It is a wooden instrument like a frog guiro. 

They have some really great inexpensive percussion libraries.  But be worth picking one up to save 20%.

The wife and I are stuck at home with this Covid thing, and I'm looking for something else to play with.  Thing is, I already have three of their choirs...

Silka and Insolidus are pretty similar, mind you. 

Do you have either one of them?

I do. They are.  And? Slightly different.   I have all 4.  I have too much stuff. 

They all sound really good.  Some are louder, some are softer, but you can similar sound by just changing the volume.  Very playable though.

The 4 listed above.  I don't have Requiem Pro (I do have Soundiron's Requiem Lite) and the New Studio Sopranos.

I think I prefer Insolidus to Silka.

Or Silka to Insolidus. 

If that helps ;)
