Soundiron Voices of Gaia -
Solo Vocal Virtual Instrument for Kontakt Player
Voices Of Gaia is a dynamic and exploratory world, soundtrack and indie solo vocalist collection for Kontakt Player (VST, AU, AAX), featuring 4 outstanding singers ranging from baritone to mezzo-soprano. Each singer includes fundamental chromatic articulations like true legato, sustains, and staccatos as well as thousands of beautiful, dynamic live performance phrases in a variety of keys, tempos, and styles. It features the voices of Francesca Genco, Linda Strawberry, Bryan Lane, and Michael Peaslee. We recorded in a dry studio environment, using high dynamic range, large-diaphragm Neumann microphones, and silent Sound Devices preamps to get maximum detail, clarity, and quality.
Voices Of Gaia includes chromatic true legato, sustains, and staccatos for a selection of common vowels. It also comes packed with thousands of beautifully dynamic live performance phrases in various keys and tempos, with real-time step-sequencing, tempo control, start/end editing, category, and key selection and more.
You'll also find dozens of uniquely creative sound-designed atmospheric synths, drones, and soundscapes that we've re-synthesized from these voices. They're perfect for underscoring, reinforcement and ambient arrangements. Along with our full FX rack panel, they offer you nearly endless creative possibilities.
We captured over 60 hours of chromatic articulations and improvised melodic elements and carefully distilled it down to this unified and flexible virtual instrument library for the Kontakt Player and Komplete Kontrol platforms. With a clean and intuitive interface, outstanding fidelity and nuanced vocal performances, Voices Of Gaia sets a benchmark for soundtrack and world music vocal libraries.
