Ethera Gold – Sahara Voices – True Legato
With the Ethera Series we developed an amazing series of True Legatos. Developing a True Legato as we have for the Ethera Series requires a lot of work and uses many, many samples. We have sampled each interval in up to 3 different styles so that the user can choose, using MIDI-velocity (0 to 95, and 96 to 127), which legato interval is preferable for a situation.
Ethera Gold – Sahara Voices – Vocal Phrases
Sampling the Human Voice is a great challenge. With our Emotive True Legato and Epic True Legato, we believe that we offer you the best and most realistic vocal Instrument on the market. However, the Human Voice is complex and so for this reason, the Vocal Phrases Instrument is particularly important. The Vocal Phrases Instrument supplies you with hundreds of fantastic ready-to-use vocal performances. Imagine, you are composing the music for a Blockbuster Trailer, or a Video Game and you instantly need a voice with a great character that will fit perfectly with your music. Well, this instrument is for you! Or if you need some inspiration for your composition then this instrument can be the starting point to build your music around.
It contains over 1600 ready-to-use Vocal Phrases, from Dramatic to Epic, from Ethereal to Modern, all organised by BPM and KEY. There are a lot of different KEYS (C, D, E, G, A) using the Time Mode with Pitch Shifting you can cover all the Key possibilities. With a Pitch shifting of +-1 semitones the sound quality is still very good. A vocal phrase in E can be converted to F with +1 semitone, or a vocal phrase in C can be taken down to B with a -1 semitone of pitch shifting.
Each vocal phrase comes in many different tempos: 95bpm, 115bpm and 130bpm, etc.
If you need to change the native tempo of a selected vocal phrase you can use the Time Mode. We suggest using only a small tempo change to maintain the quality of the original sample. For example, from 115bpm to 120 bpm or from 130bpm to 125bpm etc. Using Time Mode, the vocal phrase will be synced to the tempo of the DAW Host.
Ethera Gold – Sahara Voices – Sustains
This instrument contains a variety of vocal phonemes, including Melisma & Sustains. The controls of the Home Page are similar to some of the other instruments’ controls. With the Key Switches coloured RED, you can choose the various articulations. With the Modulation Wheel (CC 91) you can control the intensity of the sound and create a blending with other vocal samples.
