In 2001, composers Maarten Spruijt, Vincent Beijer and Marco Deegenaars teamed up to found ProjectSAM. Not fully satisfied with the orchestral samples available at the time, they set out to record their own, focusing on three main things:

  1. an ambient, multi-mic setup in a concert hall environment,

  2. the right set of articulations, emphasizing on note lengths in-between a sustain and a staccato, to be able to build thematic lines,

  3. instrumental effects that cannot simply be recreated using individual samples.

Twice the know-how - A true collaboration

With Chorus you get the know-how and experience from not just one but two orchestral developers: Audio Imperia and Performance Samples. Both Jasper Blunk (Owner of Performance Samples) and Audio Imperia brought everything to the table which, for example, you can see in how we approached the syllables: Jasper brought his expertise with energetic syllables and Audio Imperia brought the expertise with slow syllables. 

 

A new signature mix: Scott Michael Smith

Additionally, we also brought renowned and Grammy Award-winning Hollywood mixing and recording engineer Scott Michael Smith on board for Chorus. Scott's credits include The Revenant, The Handmaids Tale, It Chapter 2, Shazam!, Mank, The Gilded Age, The Adam Project, Call of Duty: Vanguard, and many others. He provided a signature mix mic for Chorus, that really brings the sound of modern film music to the library.

Versatile and Cinematic

Chorus is a powerful choir library that works across many, many genres. We recorded not only a comprehensive set of traditional articulations but also not just one, but three types of syllables: Traditional, Energetic, and Slow.
 

Recorded with Budapest Scoring.

ETHERA Gold Atlantis represents an exciting new development on the vocal library concept. Ethera Gold Atlantis is a new tool for creating soundtracks, cinematic music, epic music trailers and any music requiring fantastic solo vocals.

All the samples included in this library are completely new and unique to this instrument. This has been made possible thanks to an incredible amount of hard work and research on how to create the ultimate vocal library.

Referencing the aesthetic of Celtic melodies, epic fantasy music and medieval music, we believe this is simply the best sounding, totally inspiring, and most alive, vocal library created thus far for this genre of music. Atlantis will allow you to compose with inspiration and a great vocal!
