Syntheway Magnus Choir VST Instrument
|Developer(s)||Syntheway Virtual Musical Instruments|
|Operating system||Microsoft Windows|
Magnus Choir  is a commercial, proprietary music software synthesizer, for the Microsoft Windows platform, written by Daniel Laiseca  and developed by Syntheway Virtual Musical Instruments. The first version was released in 2005.
This software can be used to create natural and synthetic choirs, vocal textures and sustained vowels. It may work as a plugin within digital audio workstation software such as FL Studio or Cubase. Magnus Choir also is compatible with FreeVST  allowing Linux users to use native Microsoft Windows VST plugins by using parts of the Wine compatibility layer.
Synthesis and Sampling
Sound is generated via a hybrid method that combines synthesis and sampling. It features 48 built-in presets (sounds) including a variety of choirs such as male and female mixed in classic SATB (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) structure: women sing Soprano and Alto, while men sing Tenor and Bass. Additionally includes choir pads and spatial voices, among others.
