A choir at your finger tips - but takes some hard work to get good results
Hellfiremusic on 22.07.2015
You can get great results from this software, and the word builder program is very impressive. Like all software this complicated, it takes some getting used to, and I tend to be a bit impatient! I must say that the user interface is quite complicated, but after watching some of the tutorial videos on YouTube, I managed to create some very plausible sounding sung sentences. I found the word builder editor slightly frustrating and am still trying to integrate the Word Builder part into my DAW.
You can use the symphonic choirs program in your DAW without using the word builder editor, and the various articulations and voices you can access surpass the usual sampled choir you get with Garageband and the like. I managed a really nice boy solo using an AH sound - very haunting and evocative.
So to recap, it has very good sound quality and the samples are well balanced, there are lots of features, but they are a little tricky to get to grips with, so be prepared for a reasonably steep learning curve, it is not just a case of install and go!

East West - Very bad support - Very bad manuals
Konstantino on 26.12.2013
I bought East West Symp.Choir and realized that installtion was not possible with the CDs included. The options from EW were to download the latest installation version form their web site. After installation I had problems to create and organize the EW libraries due to the bad manual. After many emails and communication with EW, two weeks later I still do not have the software running. The options I receive from support are always general and do not answer direct to the questions. It seems they just want to close the ticket. How many times should someone contact the support in order to take a direct answer to its question ? How can a product with such weak instructions and such bad support be sold nowadays ? I am very disappointed. It would be better to spend some more money and buy something else.
P.S. My rating for Features & Sound is 3 only trying to be be neutral as I do not have yet the product installed on my PC.
