Hi peeps,

I just released this new sound library for Achemy:

Image


MetaVox for Alchemy is build around the exceptional overtone and throat singing of Gareth Lubbe, a true master of his craft. As Gareth is actually a professional orchestral viola player this library also contains several patches with viola sounds, the viola being a string instrument with a great resemblance to the human voice. During the recording session we also recorded duets of Gareth singing and playing the viola at the same time, these sample make for some more beautiful and wondrous sounds in Alchemy.

There are also patches with female vocals, using samples which were recorded during a recent session with Frauke Albert, a renown german vocalist (soprano), working mainly in the field of contemporary music.

As an additional string instrument some sounds also use violin samples, another instrument which has a very voice-like character and blends beautifully with the vocals sounds in this library.

Besides using the original vocal and string samples (and resynthed derivatives thereof) for making the Alchemy patches, I am fascinated in the microcosmic interior of harmonics, so I produced quite a few electronic derivatives of the samples, created by e.g. detaching the harmonics from the root note, then deleting the root note only leaving the harmonics which are then furtherly processed, timestretched, spectralized, tuned to a tempered scale and more.

So you will find a broad spectrum of sounds reaching from meditative overtone drones to fascinating throat singing to otherworldly vocal soundscapes, from technoid and pulsating sequencers to beautiful vocal pads and textures, from warm string pads with an orchestral character to experimental noises from a different universe.

You can view/download the PDF for this library with more details, the licence agreement, some pics and the patchlist, including playing tips and descriptions for each patch here.

MetaVox Specs:
  • *1.8 Gigabyte of original samples (wav) and resynthed files (.aaz)
    *56 patches with 8 variations each in Alchemy's Remix Pad, all Performance Controllers and both x/y-pads are assigned for each patch.
    *Delivery: Download
    *Price € 36 Euro
Please note: This sound library requires the full version of Alchemy (version 1.55 and higher).
It does not work with the Alchemy player version.

All samples in this library were recorded with 3 Neumann microphones in L-C-R in 48 Khz/24 Bit, a U87 as the center mic - a stereo set of KM 184 for L-R.

As in all my soundsets for Alchemy I make extensive use of Alchemy's complex modulation possibilities and filters, often intermodulating LFOs/MSEGs/sequencers with each other and assigning numerous parameters to a single Performance Controller. This enables the user to deeply interact with the sounds and shape it according to his needs and preferences. Also the patches can serve as a starting point for the user's own creations when loading new samples into them and then using the pre-assigned controllers and snapshots in the Remix Pad.

All demos were produced entirely with Alchemy using only patches from MetaVox, no post-processing was applied apart from a Limiter on the Outputs and some volume automation if several instances of Alchemy were used in a track. Only one demo uses 3rd party reverb as mentioned in the track title.

I just want to mention how much I love MetaVox for Alchemy.

I've been using it for about a week. And it has a lot more on offer than the name suggests..

Tuva throat singing drones that are high quality and very authentic sounding.

Spectral morphing vocal scapes very effective and evocative.

A treasure trove of broad ranging materiel which would be a great great resource for film sound desingers useful for example for horror, scifi over to the purity of childlike innocennce.

Some very refined sequences.

The broad sonic landscapes, evocative of the seashore, stratosphere, the mongolean steppes or deep space.

Suprising that at set with the title MetaVox has such excellent string (viola) based material, both speciels and more basic string sounds.

It will take some time to explore all the possiblities, I'm looking forward to the continuing journey into MetaVox!

Regards

Wade
waves break, but somehow it all makes sense.

Just bought this. Even though I haven't had the time to use even half of what I've already bought from you. Hehe. Really like the demos of MetaVox. Can't wait until I get the links and can start using it.
