    i wondered how you can achieve a chanting sound with a synth, like ed rush has in the host for example

    that aaaaaaaaaahhhhh

    or can't this be achieved through synthesizing and everyone is just using samples? doubt it

    would be cool if someone could shed some light on this

    Get close in the synth, add a bitcrush and eq for the vowel. . . . .tune all to taste. Thats the first thing I'd try

    and these might help

    They are more than likely using hardware, you can achieve similar sounding things on a few vsts, I think Hypersonic has a choir section in it. Samples would work too but when you go from such a low note to the higher note that they go to, you would hear the loop point which i didnt, so it leads me to believe its a vst/hardware. specially the pitch bend at the end which is so simple to do on a midi...

    I think you'd get better and much less "synthetic" sounding results from a sample mate, keep digging.

    look up some videos of choirs on youtube and take some bits from those.

    yea but the problem is usually only a lil chunk of that is usable, and when i timestretch it too much it sounds wacky. delay isn't smooth enough and reverb is too weak :/

    Throw it in a sampler man. I know the ableton sampler has a "crossfade" that blends the sample loop. and then glide.

    Philharmonik has pretty good sounding choir sounds. And it's not that expensive as well.

    Here's a couple of vocal pad type sounds from IK Multimedia Sampletank. May be too artificial for you, but anyway.

    I think the all powerful granular synth has been over looked! Dropping a vocal in a granular is amazing. the possibilities are insane.
