During Covid times, it's even more difficult to get backup singers in the studio. Professional Audio portrays a real-life-situation, where EastWest Hollywood Backup Singers came in handy: "In the end, I was able to stack multiple notes to create the choir that I’d set out to. They sing the lyrics of the hook line as convincingly as I would expect a “real choir” could. Though I don’t see this as a replacement for real vocalists, when you...
Synth & Software published James Rotondi's thoughts on EastWest Hollywood Backup Singers. He finds, HBS is much more than just a replacement for in-person backup singers and asks "Why see this rather ingenious tool, and others like it, as a replacement for anything? Especially when it’s such a versatile and deep palette in and of itself?"
Musicaradar posts about their experience composing a female vocal track with EastWest Hollywood Backup Singers: "EastWest/Quantum Leap Hollywood Backup Singers is a flexible and greatsounding sample instrument that’s ideal for pop, R&B and lighter rock applications."
Barry Rudolph tests EastWest Hollywood Backup Singers and finds "This is the coolest product I've seen lately for programming vocals and adding great feeling adlibs and high-style vocal melismas to your music!"
John Walden has high praise for the latest vocal instrument by EastWest. "For those of us that don't have a trio of professional backing singers tucked in a corner of our studios waiting to be called (or the budget to hire them in), once mastered, HBS is a genuinely impressive software-based alternative.... Hollywood Backup Singers is a quality product and capable of great results."
"I am sure that, especially today, in times of tight budgets for productions, film or television composers can work wonderfully with this plug-in. But HBS is also great for the many home producers, who don’t have access to a choir or a good recording room. HBS allows each production in a home studio setting to reach a higher level."
