    Forgotten Voices Teaser

    Welcome to our upcoming Forgotten Voices Series.

    Tonehammer will be releasing a variety of different vocalists over the next year, so composers can choose amongst several different style, languages and vocal textures suited for their needs. The core concept is to offer a massive (and we mean MASSIVE) collection of emotional, ethereal, ethnic, dreamy, powerful and haunting vocals specifically designed for soundtrack oriented compositions.

    The first release in our Forgotten Voices series is: “Francesca”

    The singer, Francesca Genco, is a highly gifted female alto singer covering a variety of vocal textures from soft to powerful, crying and evocative type of vocals. Francesca has been singing and chanting for over 20 years and is one of the most respected shamanistic sound healers in the world. She has a wide repertoire of singing styles ranging from classical western to balkan and middle-eastern song traditions. The vocal library is made from over a thousand different vocal phrases covering over 6 hours of material. The phrases were designed for maximum user flexibility through logical categories (ex. Playful, Chanting, Atonal, Whistle Singing, Lullaby, Vocal FX) and by sophisticated editing and programming. The programming allows user to sculpt- and morph phrases by adjusting the mod-wheel and pitch bender. The mod-wheel controls the sample starting point, so users can trigger off-set anywhere they want in the phrases. The pitch bender allows you to time-stretch/compress the phrase. The combination between sample off-set control and time-stretch/compression allows users to seamlessly morph different phrases together, which brings endless possibilities for creating new phrases. In addition Francesca contains a specific set of vocal ambiences (Kontakt 3 only) made by Steven Tavaglione (Instrumentalist and Sound Designer; Wall-E, American Beauty, CSI, Supernatural and 100s other movies/shows/games).

    Note: All teaser demos are played live using one vocal ambience and one set of vocals pr. demo, so they literally took 3-5 minutes to compose. We wanted to show a completely "naked" approach to using the vocals.

    Thumbs up Re: Forgotten Voices Teaser

    Awesome. I've been waiting a long time for something like this. And I love the way you guys sell individual instruments rather than bundling sounds into big expensive libraries where only a small portion is actually useful.

    This library sounds like the Lisa Gerrard-esque one that everyone's been itching for for a long time. Great samples. Can you share your effects setup for the demos -- the reverbs are just perfect!

    Hey Nayi,

    I did read the post. Next year or so is pretty vague, wouldn't you say?

    No, read MORE of the first post. It says March 4th for this first installment. The "year or so" is for the series, not this individual product. Hope that clears it up.
