Cantus 1 is a bizarre sister of this string ensembles. Using the same basic idea it generates also polyphonic pads but filtered and modyfied to vocal formants. It produces harmonic choirs and voices processed by a formant filter and coloured by a parametric equalizer section. There is also a noise generator for additional breath sound. Cantus 1 sounds really retro and is equipped with chorus effect, stereo delay and reverbation.
It comes with 32 factory presets and a user manual.
