Omenie Limited released Sopranotron 2 after removing the original 2014 Sopranotron from iTunes. I'm not sure what is new here, but this one is Universal while the former app was only available on iPad.
Like their recently released Streetlytron, there will be a high-end "Pro" version at some point in the future. Doug Woods mentions in his video below that the Pro version will include the samples from both Sopranotron 2 and Streetlytron in a single app.
Sopranotron 2 iTunes Description:Why a standalone app featuring just Soprano voices and violins? The most popular categories of mellotron voices are strings and choirs. So with that in mind we have turned our brand-new Mellotronics virtual tape replay engine into an instrument of pure voice plus pure violin. Caitlin Downie’s gorgeous soprano vocal samples, 11 individual sample sets and 4 mixes, are bundled with our popular "Clare Lindley Violin Collection" of 7 individual articulations and 3 mixes. 25 gorgeous samples to add quality and class to any mix.
And the quality really is glorious - it’s like somebody took all your favourite mellotron voices and waved a magic wand to eliminate the tape hiss. Not as instantly 'vintage' and nostalgic as our Streetlytron family, these samples are nonetheless very special, and give musicians and producers an extra, vibrant palette of vocal and chamber string colours to deploy. These sounds are equally capable of standing proud and upfront in a mix, or sitting back to form a haunting, romantic string or vocal bed.
Orirginally recorded and engineered by Glenn Tommey in Bath in 2013, these samples have been cleaned up and reworked for this new incarnation, and these are the highest quality versions of these libraries ever released.
Doug Woods from The Sound Test Room shows off the new app, which does sound very good!
