Following on from the Spitfire Audio BBCSO playback template, here is a Dorico playback template for the Spitfire Audio Eric Whitacre Choir.
Crafted and conducted by the Grammy Award winner, the library is available to purchase from the Spitfire Audio website. Download and install the library and then use this Dorico playback template:
- Eric Whitacre Choir template (1.3MB, zip 22nd June 2021)
In the zip file is the .dorico_pt playback template that will automatically load the samples from this library for each of the singers in your Dorico project, and assign the appropriate expression maps.
The available techniques (with automatic switching for legato and short notes) are:
- Aah (default)
- Soft, breathy
There are also some ‘Eric’s funtime FX’ mapped such as Ha; Hey!; Huh; long breath; finger & mouth clicks; slap; whisper; and palm rub.
For full details, including how to set up a combined playback template for this choir with your favourite sample library in Dorico, see the included documentation in the provided zip file.
I unzipped the file – I could not find a the playback file (Eric Whitacre Choir.dorico_pt) file when I unzipped. Am I doing something wrong.
Thanks in advance,
Ignore above – I did not realise you had to drop the unzipped file into the hub
On a PC it’s the Eric Whitacre Choir.dorico_pt.zip file which should be dropped onto the Hub – it doesn’t need unzipping further.
The Eric Whitacre Choir Playback template is very helpful ,Thank You for that!You have the expression map for Olympus Elements.Can You put on your website for downloading or send it to me?
I get a file error when I drop the .zip file in Win 10
Never mind. Third time’s a charm. Not sure why it didn’t work the first two times.
