It says I cannot use the vst due to the creator not being verified, should I be worried or should I override it and still use it?

Hi Thomas... if you like the plugin, go and use it! I have tested many plugins from bigcat Instruments and also this one. I also did a virus scan for you despite I knew there is no virus or simular. Windows is sometimes very sensitive and overly cautious. Depending on how you have set up user management for new programs and apps wich you want to install with "exe". In that case you dont have to worrie... go for it.

Have you checked if u linked your common files folder for the vst3s? The vst3 folder is different than the vst2 folder.

Lots of vowels to choose from, and sounds are totally usable. Especially if you use another reverb than the one built in. However, the samples don't loop, which is annoying. And keyswitches would be very nice to have.

Does this work with Studio one? I can't figure out how. It's in my computer downloads, but how do I apply it? Yes, I'm this dumb and it's a real question. Thanks.

I have downloaded the Vst, to only be shown a message that says "cannot find any instruments". The vst shows on my plugins folder but when I open it it says that. I use ableton live, and my computer is a windows 10. Why isnt it working?

Extract all the zip content in your vst folder, not just the dll file

Thank you for this choir library. Having them broke out into Sopranos, Altos, Tenors and Bass helps tremendosly in creating a mix. It's nice to pan the vocals in a way that a choir would sound. Some choirs voices are spread throughout, but other choir leaders have Basses hard left, Tenors mid left, Altos mid right and Sopranos hard right. Have different strengths of loudness is another nice natural choir response. This is awesome.

Hi - thanks for this cool VST! I'm not able to change the vowel sound though. How can I do that?
Elisabeth Oct 25 2021
Oct 25 2021
I was able to figure out how to do this, by going to the Groups. However, it'll start changing the vowels midway through one of my pieces. When it goes back to the beginning of the loop, it's not what I originally had it set as (It goes to "ah" but I want it to stay on "ooh" the whole time.)

Had to filter out the crackling. The built in reverb is alright. The voice clips are to short.

Hey how were you able to configure it in Reaper? I have the win 64 bit version and there are the .DLL files and the .instrument folder containing the .MSE files, how do you use it in Reaper? Thanks in advance

Can this free vst be used for commercial production? Are there any restrictions or other legal matters to consider? Where can I find some information concerning this issue?
Cosmic Audio Nov 30 2020

If VST's are offered free then they are taken to be free to make your own royalty free songs, tunes and beats with and with no attribution to the creator unless clearly stated otherwise, but there would be restrictions if you just copied the sound as samples and tried to sell them as your own creation and I doubt the creator would allow you to decompile or reverse engineer the VST unless stated it was open source. This is my view and not legal advice.

How would any Listener know which VST you have used in your Productions? He'd have to be a damn Genius.

Pretty good sound, would like to have some higher notes and specially longer samples. It cuts off so quickly for me

They are not great.. I have better, but the one I have is female choir. I can use this as a second channel to get male voices, but its not as great as the one I have on triple play built in patch. Still its playable and sounds good with chords.

In my opinion. Good: big library with "a","o","u","i","m" (30 voices) + library divided into: all, high, mid, mid2, low voices + good for background/textural use + good for chords + good to start composing choral music. Bad: - not enough high frequencies, to much low frequencies - need some work before use (eq, compresion, chorus e.t.c) - each instrument voice may need different work - few single sounds have some kind phasing (audible after eq) - hard to use in solo line - little to short: more then 3 sec each voice. Summary: as a free plugin it is very good. Thank you very much :)

The quality is a little iffy, but otherwise makes for good background harmonics.

I know very little about VST (just started exploring them), but I do a bit with audio, and I wanted to pass on to you a program you might like - "PaulStretch" (http://hypermammut.sourceforge.net/paulstretch/). It does some pretty amazing stuff with stretching audio, and it might help you with lengthening short samples (for instrument creation). Thanks for your hard work assembling these instruments (I discovered you via the VSCO2 Orchestra - exciting stuff!). God bless you and those you love!

Thanks WhiteLight. That looks like an interesting program. God bless you and yours.

BigCat - I ALWAYS get excited when I see a new BigCat VSt being posted. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into creating these, and for sharing them. I will never have Kontact, so I am always grateful for these VSTs you create. You have allowed me to have access to instruments I could never have dreamed of being able to use, especially the orchestral instruments. Regarding this VST, this is another wonderful VST, great sounds. I would have liked more sustain, but as you mentioned, this was the length of the samples and also that choir samples are rare. I love the fact that there are different "sounds" in this VST - not all just one sound, like "aaah" or "oh" - with this VST, I can switch things up and use various vocal sounds. So thank you again for creating and sharing this :)

Hey thanks for the kind words. While not the highest quality samples technically these choirs are pretty fun and as you say have some nice variety. Hopefully you can find some use for them and get around the shorter length. Cheers.

You are very welcome, BigCat, and you deserve nothing but kind words and thanks :) One thing people can do, if they find these samples too short, is to use your other choir VST which, if I remember correctly, does have longer samples but only the one "sound" and is EXCELLENT: http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?id=2310

Tony Banks never had problems to arrange *around* the fact, that the mellotron has nearly same restriction. ;)
Keyfan Feb 18 2018

Ok, but mostly I use these kind of sounds (choirs, voices etc.) for long sustain background sounds. 4,2 sec. is patently too short for me. For someone else it maybe ok.
justarando Mar 06 2018

Try writing your chords, turning the sound to audio, then looping it :)

Well worth instrument, but one little drawback - samples are too short. Only 4-5 sec. It seems it no adjustable.
bigcat Feb 18 2018
Feb 18 2018
Yes they are sourced from Google's Nsynth samples and they cut every single sample at 4.2 seconds. Sadly lots of nice orchestral sustains cut short as well. Choirs are rare enough I thought it was worthwhile. Maybe I should only do the orchestral shorts, pianos and such in the future using these samples as they suffer less from the 4.2 second cutoff. We'll see what the response is.
