Musical Sampling Atelier Series: Vocal Bundle
3 Legato Vocal Instruments for Kontakt Full
This bundle includes:
The Vocal Bundle is a 5 GB collection of meticulously crafted legato vocals from three different singers.
Our goal with these releases was to produce incredibly smooth, emotive patches that can be used for a wide variety of musical contexts. To achieve this, we recorded all the legato "long style" - a technique that takes far more recording time but ensures a smooth sustain after the legato transitions have sounded.
In addition to tuning, frequency adjustments, and extensive balancing, all three libraries went through a rigorous programming period that involved zeroing in on precise start-time values for every legato interval individually; down to millisecond adjustments to find their specific sweet spots. The result: Responsive, emotive, and balanced legato patches that transition smoothly throughout the entire range.
Atelier Series Amy is a legato vocal release intended for emotional and cinematic contexts.
For this, we wanted a tone that was somewhere between classical and pop. As luck would have it, our co-producer knew someone who not only fit the brief but also had the kind of vocal stamina this project required. Enter Amy Griffin; a talented vocalist and music educator.
We've included two extensively recorded legato patches performed "long-style". This means there are no programmed crossfades into a target sustain after playback of the legato interval. This involves far more recording time (12 hours in this case) than traditional legato sampling but ensures a seamless performance that also retains Amy's natural progression in vibrato; musically unique for every interval across the range.
Also included is Everlasting - a collection of beautiful, vowel-evolving sustains processed with a variety of hardware pedals. Every sample ebbs and flows; each note unique in how they evolve and loop. This keyswitch suite includes six presets: Beauty, Tundra, Celestial, Elysium, The Signal, and Creation.
Atelier Series Fauxgorian is a lush legato male vocal release intended for cinematic and electronic contexts.
Performed by producer/composer Brad Jerkins, Fauxgorian’s initial aim was to create a vocal legato library that was a bit more unconventional. We recorded three different vowels (ahh, mmm, ooo) and processed the recordings to achieve a unique, wide, quasi-Gregorian flavor that can suit a variety of modern settings. We also provided two natural solo legato patches (ooo, mmm).
Also included is Pagan Ritual - a brooding, deep, organic instrument that works great for heavy, amoebic basslines. Perpetuum – keyswitch patch housing five presets of evolving vowel sustains processed with a bespoke array of hardware pedals. The Black Speech – a collection of processed whisper chants both solo and faux ensemble (try not to use these in a track at 3 AM).
Atelier Series Maggie is a rich, soulful legato vocal release for emotional, cinematic, and modern songwriting contexts.
Included are three vowel patches (ahh, ooo, mmm) with natural, progressive vibrato. We spent a lot of time finessing the legato transitions using a variety of post-production and programming techniques to allow Maggie’s performances to sail through smoothly.
In addition to the Emotional Legato patches, we’ve included Evermore; an evolving sustains keyswitch patch. We sourced the material from the vocal recordings and ran them through a bespoke array of hardware pedals for atmospheric, tonal sound design. Included are six presets: Promise, Afterglow, Hallowed, Abyss, Prayer, and Stardust.
