Soundiron Elvish Choir 2.0
Elven Choir Virtual Instrument for Kontakt Full
Elvish Choir is exactly what it sounds like: A pack of rowdy elven folk singing as an ensemble, with sustains, short staccatos, and long staccatos/semi-marcatos in multiple dynamics over a fairly wide range. Also included are meaty shout/yelp impacts created through a little excessive hammer on elf groin violence. We recorded this little beast with the help of a little spiced seasonal ale and a whole lot of helium. It's perfect for holiday, comedy, and parody music and those who are searching for fresh and weird source material for sound design and experimentation.
Originally published in 2009 as part of the Tonehammer Gnomehammer v1 collection by Tonehammer, vast amounts of helium were inhaled by our performers in order to record this library. What this means is we go so far as to ingest foreign substances into our bodies in order to provide a unique, powerful musical experience. For Elvish Choir 2.0, we added Solo Doo and La articulations, public domain Christmas song phrases from Deck the Halls and Jingle Bells, and created brand new ambiences from the source content. We also remastered the samples, added usability features with our modular template, and created 20 new custom FX presets to give you instant inspiration for your next film/video game score, soundtrack, or music composition.
The Kontakt interface includes a suite of automation-ready sound-shaping controls to give you total creative flexibility. You have control over swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering, and so much more. We've also included 20 unique sound-designed custom FX presets to give you lots of creative options.
This library comes with an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing, and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 12 low-pass, high-pass, and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, mod wheel, expression, after-touch, key position, and step-sequencer table control. Our customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization, and duration. We’ve included a key and scale lock system to constrain your notes to common scales and keys for easy melodic composition and live performance.
The interface is rounded-out by our modular FX rack panel, with 18 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 10 available slots, in any order that you wish. You’ll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more. The Reverb effect includes our favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers, and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility. We’ve added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
This library is designed for the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.5 or later. Kontakt is an industry-standard advanced virtual instrument software platform. You can view screenshots of this library's custom graphical user interface in the image gallery above. This library is packed with features to provide you a wide range of sound shaping parameter controls, each one totally automation-ready in your host environment or Kontakt's stand-alone mode.
This is a standard Kontakt open-format library, so the free Kontakt Player does not fully support it and can only run it in a limited "demo mode". However, the sample directories are unlocked so you can use them in other wav-compatible software, sampler, and synth formats. The special Libraries tab doesn't support this open-format Kontakt library, but you can use the standard File browser tab and import this library into the Kontakt Quickload window for easy loading and navigation.
