Choirs can give any kind of music a lift, but sampled choirs are not versatile and many vocal synthesize concentrate so hard on trying to sing a lyric that they forget to carry a tune.
Ever wondered how Tomita created such convincing choir sounds…a
Voc one is different, using a simple analogue synthesizer to simulate the glottal pulse or pulses and then using a powerful, morphable formant filter bank to give a realistic, warm and flexible vocal quality:
- full control over each stage of the vocal synthesis
- morphable formant filter with 11 recognised phonetic vowel spectra
- morphing between vowels sounds subtle and natural
- control over the register of the formant filter and the emphasis to give a much greater range of possible vocal types
- 8 presets plus room for 8 more
- built in high quality reverb (UDReverb based on freeverb – thanks to Elogoxa and David Haupt for this)
- lots of potential for experimentation.
It should be noted that CPU usage is quite high with this one and a minimum 1.2GHz processor is recommended, although it will work (if the playing is not too complex) on an 800MHz processor.
Thanks to myVST for the video demo!
