Soundiron releases "Voice of Rapture: The Tenor" for Kontakt

Vor: Tenor GUISoundiron has released Voice of Rapture: The Tenor, the next entry in the "Voice of Rapture" solo vocal series for Kontakt. This library focuses on the Tenor, and features a wide range of fully playable chromatic content as well as hundreds of live performance phrases.

Performed by Brian Thorsett, this 8.9 GB library was recorded dry in a studio booth with two different microphones (cardioid and condenser) each has independent volume and stereo panning controls. The chromatic content includes 3 sustaining True Legato vowels, Ah (F) w/vibrato, Ah (p) w/o vibrato and Oo (p). Also available are 23 multi-syllable staccato phrases and a dozen Latin sustaining chants, all with full tempo-syncing, time-stretching and synchronized legato. 6 non-vibrato sustains (Ah, Ee, Eh, Mm, Oh & Oo) and 5 sustains with vibrato (Ah, Ee, Eh, Oh & Oo) are also included. The chromatic content is rounded out by Ah and Oo vowel staccatos, each with dynamic velocity-based layering and multiple round robin variations.

The live performance phrases were recorded in the keys of A#, C, D, E, F#, and G# (with both major and minor variants) at root tempos of 80 & 100 BPM. All phrases feature full tempo-syncing and time-stretching capabilities through the custom user interface. Phrases are divided into four categories: Latin (based on the Angelic Salutation), French (based on a poem by René-François Sully-Prudhomme), vowel and a special selection of melodic humming phrases. All live performance phrases can be used in the advanced Phrase Sequencer which allows for per-step start and end markers, and pitch transposition for increased flexibility.
