Soniccouture releases CrowdChoir instrument to aid Red Cross

Soniccouture has announced that their CrowdChoir project has been a great success. The instrument is available now for £20 / €20 / $25. All profits will be donated to The Red Cross.

Crowd-choir was an idea for a crowd-sourced sampled instrument, partly inspired by the 10cc track 'I'm not in love', which famously featured a vocal pad sound created by painstakingly overdubbing a single vocal note over and over again. The plan was to get hundreds of people all around the world to sing one note each from a 3 octave range - then layer these recordings in a sampler to create a unique vocal sound - a wash of different voices in different rooms in different countries.

Each participant was provided with instructions on how best to record their note - which format, sample rate, etc. - and a web form by which they could upload the audio file along with their name and email address.

Soniccouture say that over 1000 people contributed in excess of 4000 notes over a 3 month period and the resulting audio was edited and processed into a unique sampler instrument which has now been released for Kontakt / EXS24 / Ableton Live formats.

Pricing and Availability

The instrument is available now for £20 / €20 / $25. All profits will be donated to The Red Cross.
