    Your favorite world vocal libraries?

    Anyone care to recommend their favorite world/ethnic vocal libraries? I'm constantly looking for samples of vocal performances, solo mostly (male and female).

    Both quality and large selection are key. Format doesn't much matter (it's all convertible these days...)

    Thanks!

    Well I only own one world vocal library - of Tuvan throat singing - so I couldn't really describe it as my favourite. It's also got fairly limited content, but it is very different should you wish to stand out:-

    Zero G has an Apple Loops library that has a good number of samples from around the world.

    it is also available in .wav format.

    I have VOP, but that is female only. I don't own it yet but plan to get Vocal Planet from Spectrasonics.

    Also check out Heart of Africa and Heart of Asia, these are also from Spectrasonics.
    It depends on what countries you need to cover.

    Thanks! I'll have a look/listen.

    More suggestions welcome, if anyone has them.

    Do you have a particular vocal language that you need?

    There are so many, it would be hard to know where to start.

    But make sure you check out the library section of www.spectrasonics.net

    Heart of Africa Vols 1 &2

    Heart of Asia

    Vocal Planet

    I have heard great things said of these libraries and I know the Spectrasonics libraries are very good indeed.

    Thumbs up for the Spectrasonics stuff!

    Heart of Africa (among other Spectrasonics sample CD's) was used a lot on the Enigma album Le Roi Est Mort, Vive Le Roi! I wouldn't be surprised if other artists like Mox, Waterbone, and Deep Forest use some of the content as well, and tons of others I'm sure.

    Seriously, Eric and his crew really inspire me. Their libraries are unlike any other.
