Voice of Rapture: The Soprano represents a new benchmark in solo vocal sampling for classical operatic voices. Recorded with Soprano virtuoso Nichole Dechaine, this powerful 3.5 GB collection of fully playable chromatic content and emotionally charged melodic phrases gives you more creative freedom, expressive power and work-flow flexibility than any other solo operatic soprano vocal library you’ll find. Recorded in a warm studio environment, each articulation has been carefully programmed into our powerful performance system. This virtual solo voice instrument brings together superior programming, brilliant performances, unrivaled sonic quality and living, breathing soul into an unprecedented solo vocal solution.
We captured 2 True Legato sustain types, with 'Ah' (forte) and 'Oo' (piano) vowels, using the full-sustain method for the highest level of quality and realism. The legato includes adjustable release samples, 3-voice polyphonic support and transition shaping. There are also standard Ah, Eh, Mm and Oh pure vowel sustains, with some vibrato and non-vibrato variants. You’ll also find nearly 2 dozen staccato syllables with precision note shaping and instant syllable switching. There are a dozen sustaining chromatic Latin chants, each with phrase-synchronized legato and instant word switching. All chromatic content spans a playable key range of over 2 octaves.
The Phrase section includes 867 improvised melodic phrases at 100 bpm, with automatic real-time tempo-synching or time-stretching modes. Phrases are included in the root keys of A, B, C, D, E, F and G (with both major and minor variants), with easy transposition control to fit most keys. You’ll find sections for vowel melodies, Latin melodies based on the traditional Angelic Salutation (“Hail Mary”) in Latin, French phrases based on the classic 19th century poem “Ici-bas” by René-François Sully-Prudhomme. And of course there are plenty of effects and performance elements to choose from, including whispers, breaths and more, as well as a deep selection of sound-designed ambiences, drones, atmospheres, pads and FX instruments. We’ve also included our comprehensive FX Rack panel, with multi-effects, compression, EQ, amp/speaker simulation and convolution reverb, featuring dozens of our most popular custom rooms, halls, chambers, cathedrals and unique FX impulses.
