Choral Playback

• Sep 15, 2023 - 15:28

In an orchestral/choral score, how do you enter the SATB notes so that on playback it sounds as choral ad not 4 SATB soloists?


I don't know about MS4, but in MS3 my understanding about Vocals was that Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass are solo sounds. For a chorus effect I sometimes use Women and Men.

Here is a link to an example MS3 practice file with SATB + piano (not SATB + orchestra). This score uses standard vocals of Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass:
For the voices on their own without the piano, listen from bar 31 onwards. To me it seems fairly convincing as a chorus?

And here is a link to an MS3 practice file which uses Women and Men vocals:…
TBH, I can't tell the difference between this sound and the separate S A T B voices!
