Oceania II is a choir built for thematic writing, and improves upon the original Oceania with twice the ensemble size, more syllables, and two speeds of releases (the faster of which helps for fast phrases). The library was created using phrases chopped out of connected performances (for many assets, including the releases), resulting in patches that provide spontaneity, energy and syllable cohesion. Multiple speeds of releases in combination with intricate programming methods allow flexibility with phrase length and faster phrases.

Two speeds of releases which trigger in depending on playing speed (allowing more fluent fast phrases)
Created using phrases chopped out of connected performances
