    Garritan Comunity Fun Choir

    Hi friends, I have an idea: (posted also in the Garritan Forum)

    You all: sing and record a short, medium and long a, e, i, o, u, m ... in the range you can and send it to me via email. With this samples I will build the "Garritan Comunity Fun Choir" library.

    No joke! Send it to metaphon (at) t-online.de

    Lets have fun!

    That's a really good idea... =)))) But why not extend the idea to the whole forum? You'll get a much bigger choir! Especially if only few people post.

    Also ask people to record big cinematic stuff like: hhhhhHHHHA! hhhhhHHHO! You could get a really cool choir out of it!

    Me too! I'll try to record my part soon...

    I wonder if there are more this kind of things going on? People could create pretty awesome virtual instruments by just asking people to post stuff. Try chanting, grunting, yelling, etc...

    Very cool idea.
    But one thought ...
    It might be a good idea to specifically define the terms "short, medium, long ( extra long? )"
    using BPM and measures / beats / notes.

    Also, it might be good to define the format for the files to be sent.
    44 / 24 etc?

    a, (ahhh), e, i, o, (oooo), u, m ( ummmm ? )

    I like the idea for extra tones!

    Hi Gary,

    thanks. Yes I think it is a cool idea an we will have a lot of fun also.

    To all the others:

    Sing what you can sing in the range you can sing. Short, medium and long would be cool, sure, but it is not a "must".

    A, E, I, O, U, Mh, all in your language. If you can, send WAV files in 44,1kHz-24bit. You can send one with all your recordings ore more.... .
    And please don`t use no plugin! Only raw recordings!

    Please tell this to your friends here and let us do an incredible library!

    Wow, the first file has arrived. Many thanks!

    If we receive more than 100 recordings, then I have a nice surprise for you! More about this later.
