    Backing vocals

    Hi, I´m looking a good set of samples/instrument to
    generate most common non-verbal backing vocal
    lines. Often these uuhs, aahs etc. are multiharmony
    tracs, there should be possibility to create flexible different
    phonetic phrases including 1-5 intervals.
    I´d like to hear your opinions/recommendations.

    I´ve got the Melodyne cre8 and plugin, in the Melodyne
    family there are a couple of libraries, especially the
    Melodyne Sound Library the voice vol.2" looks intresting.

    Then there are of course much heavier tools in the market such as the
    EWQL Symphonic Choirs.

    I´ve got e.g. Kontakt2, I wonder if there are some other really good
    backing vocals made for this engine.

    Sorry for the uselesness of my post but:

    wilx: LOL! This made my day! Honestly! Thanks

    Harry, the EWQL SC are a bit heavy, in my opinion, and more oriented to... heavier, more hollywood sound, more full, more... epic metal style! . Don't know how well they would fit in other types of music...

    I´M not the onewho generetes the music mostly based on the samples, on the contrary some I´ve met in these pages.

    Suppose you send a link of a violin for those asking about orchester library,
    echo chamber for those asking about reverb-plugin etc.

    Yeah,yeah, it was a joke, I know... - but go to someone else´s thread
    cracking these one´s, you bstrard. ;-) (...joke, joke).

    Hehe.
    With the violin example, I'd argue that it takes quite a long time to get anywhere near a decent level of profficiency on the violin, or any orchestral instrument (except maybe a timpani...).

    ...but most muso types will have a voice that works, and it's dirt cheap & very quick to just record the vocals yourself. Formant-shift for women, slight eq/tuning/timing variations for different voices - and voilà - a lovely group of fake backing singers!

    A reverb plugin vs a cave
    A violin VI vs a real violin
    Real voice & mic vs. vocal samples/synthesis.

    - these are examples of quicker, easier ways of getting a decent approximation of what you want.

    I reckon vocal synthesis technology isn't good enough at the mo, so you should either rely on samples (the melodyne thing's probably the best and most flexible option), or the voices of you, your loved ones, local hobos etc and a mic.

    I think there isa real demand for a good rock/RnB back up vocal sample set. I know there is a Ubserschall Liquid Vioce library (using melodyne technology, I believe) that is supposed to do this, but I wonder how well it works.
