Strezov Sampling TROPAR Remastered [KONTAKT]

TROPAR Remastered
Ten years anniversary overhaul: Experience the sound of an authentic orthodox choir you definitely haven’t heard before! Tropar adds what nearly all virtual choirs out there lack: a warm, soft, but still powerful sounding men choir section. With the remastered edition it is now encoded for Kontakt and features brand new polyphonic true legato.

Tropar is a word that comes from the Greek “Troparion” and is a religious hymn in the Orthodox liturgy. We were hugely inspired by the typical orthodox liturgy sound and especially all the hymns written by composers like Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Strumski, Arhangelski and many other.

For this library we recorded 12 men – 6 basses and 6 tenors in an authentic orthodox church! They are recorded separately, into two groups. The library is chromatically sampled and all the samples were run through Avalon AD2044F just for that warm analogue sound.

The library consists of three dynamics – piano, mezzo piano and forte – using the vowel “Ooh” (with the exception of f dynamic which was sung in “Aah”). The library has four mic positions – close (mixdown of 6-mic array really close to the singers), decca (Decca tree LCR above the conductor), side (two mics LR in the courners of the hall) and back (two mics behind the singers, facing the wall and thus a reflected pre-delay sound).

The Remastered Edition brings a new UI based on our recent Afflatus Series releases as well as polyphonic true legato as a free update. It is also encoded for Native Instrument’s Kontakt Player and NKS compatible.
