    DIVA Ensemble Patches ... Beta Mp3\'s

    *see end of thread for sample 2*


    Diva Ensemble Patches

    There will be six additional GigaStudio files added to Diva.
    They are entitled: Diva Ensembles.

    I am currently tweaking and beta testing theses patches therefore they will not be apart
    Of the “projected” September 5, release date.

    Diva Ensembles will be free update files
    to registered users. They will also be sold within the Diva Extended CD to non-registered users.

    Key words:

    Spoken Melismatic
    Small Female Choir

    I have posted a 30 sec “Beta” teaser of the new patches. Please tolerate that this is merely a beta demonstration. I will take the liberty to apologize for rather weak string writing … though not the focal point.

    What you will hear is Diva Ensemble 1 of 6.
    This is “live” Giga play with Diva Ensemble 1 on MIDI port 1 and GOS (custom
    Patch)on MIDI port 2.

    I employed about great deal of NFX large hall for diffusion.

    If you have comments or suggestion, please feel free to share [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    As always,
    Francis Belardino


    PS. There will be a true beta demo (Soloist one), composed by, Sam Hulick within the coming days. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Very nice, Francis. The full set should be quite musical and useful.

    Sounds good [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] One question, though. Do all female voices sound that operatic or are there more \"common\" voices as well?

    Thank you very much indeed, Mr. King`ster! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]


    I am not sure if I understand your question.

    I assume what you are asking is if Diva has female vocal samples
    that would be more suited for popular music?

    The main focal point, centered on the haunting, film score ranges form
    angelic to sinister…

    however, I would not say they fall into a “pop” category.

    Funny you should ask. Soloist 2: Melisa.
    We would always refer to, Sarah McLaughlin and Lisa Gerrard during the session.
    There is that breathy influence on Soloist 2.

    Soloist 1: Rebecca, falls more so into an “operatic” category. Soloist 1 performs with the Philadelphia Opera Company. Go figure!

    I have posted a few examples in the past that were “naked”, so to speak.

    Are you seeking a “demo” with no accompaniment and/or additional reverb?
    Or, just a few wav files?

    Thank you for your interest.


    \"I employed about great deal of NFX large hall for diffusion.\"

    50% to be precise.

    No, I weren\'t really talking about pop stuff, just a pure and clear voice, less vibrating, not that \"classically trimmed\" Yea, Sarah and Lisa-like will be fine, I guess [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks for answering ....

    I agree with Marc. I\'d like less of the vibrato, \"opera\" voice, and more of a clear voice. Something like what you\'d hear in a sixteenth century piece by Palestrina instead of something you\'d hear in a Verdi opera.

    Francis, were these multisamples or phrases you used for the teaser? The voices sounded very realistic. Please tell me they were multisamples and I\'ll be very impressed.
