Soundiron Elvish Choir v2.0 KONTAKT
Elvish Choir is exactly what it sounds like: A pack of rowdy elven folk singing as an ensemble, with sustains, short staccatos and long staccatos/semi-marcatos in multiple dynamics over a fairly wide range. Also included are meaty shout/yelp impacts created through a little excessive hammer on elf groin violence. We recorded this little beast with the help of a little spiced seasonal ale and a whole lot of helium. It’s perfect for holiday, comedy and parody music and those who are searching for fresh and weird source material for sound design and experimentation.
Originally published in 2009 as part of the Tonehammer Gnomehammer v1 collection by Tonehammer, vast amounts of helium were inhaled by our performers in order to record this library. What this means is we go so far as to ingest foreign substances into our bodies in order to provide a unique, powerful musical experience. For Elvish Choir 2.0, we added Solo Doo and La articulations, public domain Christmas song phrases from Deck the Halls and Jingle Bells, and created brand new ambiences from the source content. We also remastered the samples, added usability features with our modular template, and created 20 new custom FX presets to give you instant inspiration for your next film/video game score, soundtrack or music composition.
The Kontakt interface includes a suite of automation-ready sound-shaping controls to give you total creative flexibility. You have control over swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering, and so much more. We’ve also included 20 unique sound-designed custom FX presets to give you lots of creative options.
This library comes with an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 12 lowpass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. Our customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization and duration. We’ve included a key and scale lock system to constrain your notes to common scales and keys for easy melodic composition and live performance.
The interface is rounded-out by our modular FX rack panel, with 18 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 10 available slots, in any order that you wish. You’ll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more. The Reverb effect includes our favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility. We’ve added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
