Listen - Dominus Choir
Two years ago, when we released Dominus Choir, we were already looking forward to enriching it with new features. Among them was the ability to sing in English and add Marcato and Staccato articulations. Today, we can proudly say that we have successfully accomplished this task!
Paolo had a clear vision of how the choir library should sound, knowing precisely how to achieve the best results. Mario Lanaro, with his vast sampling experience, had already become a true sampling-machine, thanks to his positive attitude and attention to detail, always striving to bring out the best from the singers. The choirs themselves offered the perfect blend of experience in the intricacies of sampling and an excitement for this new challenge.
Right from the beginning, in Dominus Choir Pro, we paid particular attention to recreating the same recording settings used for Dominus Choir. Additionally, the sampling days were enriched by the solid support brought by Simone Mor and Matteo Melchiori, now integral parts of the FluffyAudio team.
Once again, we extend a big thank you to the two conductors of the wonderful choirs we sampled, Mrs. Jose Borgo and Mr. Maurizio Sacquegna, as well as the Female Vocal Ensemble “La Rose” and Vocal Ensemble “Novecento”. Our gratitude also goes out to our dear Pietro Pasquini, Mario Lanaro, and all the people who have supported us throughout these years.
…And what more can we say? Dominus Choir Pro truly “speaks” or rather “sings” for itself!
“Dominus” in latin means “Lord” or “Master”. This word can be heard in many examples of sacred Christian Music.
Despite its noble origins, the choice of the name “Dominus” was actually inspired by Dominoes, the popular game that dates back to 13th century China and which spread out to Europe five centuries later.
In facts, the way the engine works resembles this ancient game. In Dominoes you connect the different tiles according to their value. Dominus Choir utilizes an engine which intelligently connects the different syllables by the vowels which both precede and follow the consonants.
The vowels are the glue that holds the words together. This system keeps the musicality and the realism of the original sessions intact, but also gives the user complete control over the duration of each part of the words built with the word editor.
The same system flawlessly works under the score in Dominus Choir Pro, taking care to smooth the transitions between the various syllables.
In addition to this, Dominus features beautiful true-legato transitions for all the vowels in the library, capable of dealing with movements from the softest to the strongest dynamics, and, an intuitive polylegato engine that simply works as it should.
