Hollywood Choirs First Look- Realtime Performance Improvisation

262 ratings | 11540 views
So the Eastwest Hollywood Choirs was just released. I thought I'd give you a first taste by improvising a little piece. As a long time Symphonic Choirs user I feel that this is a huge improvement in choir sampling. Hope you enjoy and let me know for any questions in the comments . Equipment used: DAW: Cubase 9.5 Pro Midi Keyboard and Additional Orchestral sounds : Yamaha Montage 6- custom patch Eastwest Hollywood Choirs Gold

I want to buy this library, but I was checking everywhere for demos, reviews, etc. to be sure. I was almost convinced, then I got here and after seen your video... I'm totally in for it! I'm going to buy it! Thanks for that awesome performance :)

Hi Dom, how do you compare Hollywood Choirs with EW Symphonic Choirs?  Do you think it is worth upgrading?  Thanks a lot!
Dom Sigalas (7 months ago)
Thanks Sheldon, honestly, I use Hollywood Choirs mainly for wordbuilder patches. To me they sound much more playable than the previous version. Legatos I don't use so much on this library as the word builder patches outshine everything :)
Sheldon Tam (7 months ago)
Thanks a lot, Dom.  I think so too, but I have also heard some negative comments regarding the legato patches and other areas.  That's why I asked.  By the way, really nice performance using Hollywood Choirs here, keep it up!
Dom Sigalas (7 months ago)
Hi Sheldon, I've been using the original SC for many years. In all honesty, I think it's totally worth the upgrade, much more Easy to program and the sound is fuller and more versatile :)

really lovely

Thanks for the inspiration!!!! I bought Cubase Pro :)
Dom Sigalas (7 months ago)
Depends on what you want to do. Elements is a great program that will allow you to do a lot at a fraction of the price. For what I do I cannot live without Pro :)
Elio Deso (7 months ago)
I would you recommend cubase elment, pro or artist? Thanks
Dom Sigalas (7 months ago)
Cheers Elio :)

Great performance. Why don't you assign the mod wheel to a pedal? It would be much easier to work up those dynamics :)
Dom Sigalas (8 months ago)
Hahaha I know right? Two reasons : 1: HW Choirs already has CC11 assigned so pedal is occupied, and 2: I like using the Modwheel, feels like I'm playing an instrument... Plus I trust my hands more ;)

Hey, Dom. I'm about add a musician to my band who plays various brass instruments. I might add a breath controller to my setup if I can make one work with the Montage. Do you know how to make that work?
Dom Sigalas (10 months ago)
Thanks Gabriel, I am going my best :)
Gabriel Gray (10 months ago)
Thanks. I also want to commend you on being probably the most responsive YouTube channel host I know of. I'll try not to abuse that, but really appreciate you for taking the time to respond. I know breath controllers won't be a necessity since the the brass and woodwinds sound so much better than previous generations, but I have a weird rule where when I have a musician who plays those things already, I don't step on them by using my sounds instead. Getting them involved in controlling those sounds if I want to use them is one of my ideas to find a middle ground.
Dom Sigalas (10 months ago)
Hmm... I haven't done this just yet. I guess you could try connecting a controller to assignable one and assign this to breath controller(cc). I don't have a wind controller unfortunately so cannot test this myself.

Awesome! I couldn't make out the phrases that you entered...that being the innovation in this software, is it my ear, the Youtube quality, or the software?
Dom Sigalas (11 months ago)
Thanks roobah, I had quite a few phrases programmed, to be honest I can't really remember half was Latin half was English. But the thing sounded so good I just wanted to play it ;)

This is excellence by far! Yet I was wondering how you arranged the words in Wordbuider? Do you have multiple instances of Hollywood Choirs or did you program one long pattern in Wordbuilder? Also, is this a legato patch you are using?
Dom Sigalas (11 months ago)
Thanks Gregory :) it's actually one instance of HC, but you're right: I programmed a long string of words in Word Builder. It's not a legato patch although there are legato patches included. However, the transitions are way more natural compared to Symphonic Choirs :)

How to get this patch? It sounds really nice!
Dom Sigalas (11 months ago)
Hi Piotr, yes, the Choirs come from Eastwest Hollywood Chois and they sound smashing!
Piotr Arłukowicz (11 months ago)
Thank you, I've seen this, but now I watch it again. However I think your choirs sound way better :)
Dom Sigalas (11 months ago)
Hey Piotr, If you're talking about the Orchestra sound then maybe check this video: https://youtu.be/jULMe2c7GKQ
