Vocalisa: Slavic Women’s Choir by Impact Soundworks – discover the powerful sound of Slavic (Bulgarian-style) singing as performed by an all-female chorus: sopranos, mezzos, altos, soloist, and full choir. Vocalisa features many important syllables and consonants idiomatic to this style, plus useful pitch articulations (mordents, turns) and FX (breaths, claps, clusters.)
The interface of Vocalisa allows for full control over the performance and sound of each section. Articulations and syllables can be triggered via keyswitch, or sequenced using the “Grid Mode” pictured below.
Each syllable and ornament can be tweaked individually – volume, offset, and brightness. For example, using offset on the “mah” syllable can create a simple “ah” vowel, or “shteh” can be shortened to “teh”. The brightness knob is also a highly useful tool for shaping the timbre and tonality of the performance.
Other global effects are available as well! We’ve included handy tools such as a compressor, stereo width control (for widening or collapsing to mono), release noise mixer, EQ, and convolution reverb.
KONTAKT version 4 or higher required (FULL version, not player)
“After playing for just a little, it starts to sound good. Real good. This choir has energy, and lots of it… When playing the Full Choir Master patch you can almost see them standing outside and singing into the blowing winds. It sounds strong, brave and beautiful. I have nothing [else] that conjures the same feeling… [it] lends a whole new tone or vibe to what I already have and you can go with a full choir or a more intimate one. Vocalisa has a filled a spot in my palette of sounds that I didn’t know was missing. It has a safe place in my template from now on.”
