Soundiron has released Questionably Barbershop, a simple 4-piece male vocal ensemble, crafted in the style of an old time Barbershop Quartet.
This Kontakt library offers basic chromatic sustains and staccato articulations, improvised scat and bebop phrases, along with a pair of classic Americana folk song construction kits, with each vocal part directly accessible in several root keys. Each singer (Tenor Lead, Baritone, Bass and Tenor Falsetto) performs 3 types of sustains and staccatos: Doo, Lah and Woh, which can be adjusted to play pure Oo, Ah and Oh vowel sounds with offset, duration and attack shaping. Dynamic 4-part harmony voicing in the Ensemble Sustains and Staccatos presets automatically plays Lead first, with other parts voiced by range. For a full men's chorus sound a user can select the "Unison" mode to play all four voices over the whole key range. The Auto-pan feature automatically spreads the singers over the stereo field for a wider sound.
The Scat 'N Bebop phrase section includes 356 improvised phrases, with real-time tempo-synching and time-stretching. Phrases are included in the root keys of C, E, and G# with easy transposition to other keys. You'll also find our DSP Rack panel, with multi-effects, compression, EQ, amp/speaker simulation and convolution reverb, with dozens of rooms, halls, chambers, cathedrals and FX impulses.
