Description: By releasing Dominus Choir two years ago, we already wanted to enrich it with new features. Among them are the opportunity to sing in English and add articulations of marcato and staccato. By now, we can say that we have successfully completed the task.
This time, Paolo had the perfect picture in his head of what the choir’s library should be — he knew exactly how to achieve the best result; Mario Lanaro, from the moment of his first sampling experience, by that time had become a real sampling machine, with his confident position and attention to detail, always striving to extract the best from the singers and the choir itself, with the perfect combination of the experience of all the difficulties of sampling and the excitement of a new challenge.
From the very beginning, at Dominus Choir Pro, we paid special attention to creating exactly the same recording settings as in Dominus Choir. Moreover, the recording days were enriched by the tremendous support of Simone Mor and Matteo Melchiori. Many thanks again to the two conductors of the wonderful choirs that we sampled, Mrs. Jose Borgo and Mr. Maurizio Sakkiana, the female vocal ensemble La Rose and the vocal ensemble Novecento; to our dear Pietro Pasquini, Mario Lanaro and all the people who have supported us again during these years.
…What else? You can simply say that Dominus Choir Pro literally “speaks” or correctly says “sings”!
Despite its noble origin, the choice of the name “Dominus” was actually inspired by dominoes, a popular game that dates back to the 13th century (China) and which spread to Europe five centuries later.
In fact, the way the tool engine works is reminiscent of this ancient game. In dominoes you connect different bones according to their meaning. The Dominus Chorus uses an engine that intelligently connects various syllables with vowels that precede and follow consonants. Vowels are the glue that holds words together. This system not only keeps the musicality and realism of the original words unchanged, but also gives the user complete control over the duration of each part of the words created using the word editor.
The same system works flawlessly in the Dominus Choir Pro score, taking care to smooth out transitions between different syllables. In addition to this, Dominus has excellent true-legato transitions for all vowels in the library that can handle movements from the softest to the strongest dynamics, and an intuitive polylegato engine that just works as it should.
