" ...Altus features the melodious vocal talents of counter tenor José Hernández Pastor. Although a classical counter tenor covers a comparable range to an alto, here the Kontakt instrument spans just over an octave, which is slightly limiting in terms of key. This Best Service opus is best suited to a Renaissance or Baroque setting. The library's highlight is its haunting solo voice, its realistic legato and slow or fast articulation chosen by how smooth or hard you play....."

"You cant't fault Altus as a collection that sets out to do something and does it incredibly well. The focus is narrow, which is a huge strenght but also a weakness as it obviously isn't going to appeal to everyone. But as I've continued to use Shevannai and Cantus since reviewing them I have found myself turning to them for all sorts of reasons and all sorts of different genres, and have been surprised at how important they have both become, even inspiring new genres of my music."

"No matter what you can do, or what you can’t, all Tarilonte’s voice libraries sound very authentic. So, if you spend some additional time combining various articulations, tweaking some controllers, you get a real vocal line, a vocal line which is a bit limited by the number of different voices, but still no one should recognize that those limited number of syllables or words come from a sample library. After all, it sounds as real as a real vocalist can sound (that’s the trademark for all Tarilonte’s libraries)."
