Aanaa – The Unfinished Choir

Aanaa – The Unfinished Choir


Aanaa The Unfinished Choir is an accident. I made it by mistake.

Inspired by the Winter Voices project here on Pianobook one morning and seemingly having nothing better to do, I recorded myself singing (terribly, I might add) some random notes for fun. About two hours later I’d made Aanaa.

Normally I’m a synth programmer, not a sampler (I’ve worked on things like The Crown and the new Bond film, No Time To Die), so please excuse the faltering, old skool-ness of the process and the sound.

The voice samples were recorded into my Aston Spirit mic, through my UAD 6176 channel strip, and captured in Cubase – where I then proceeded to make them vaguely palatable to the ear using a variety of effects plugs from the likes of Eventide, Soundtoys and Valhalla.

There’s some basic choirs, some drones and some more experimental patches.

Hope you enjoy them!

I’m especially pleased with the noisy whistle and fragile tape choir patches, everything is a lot of fun to work with. High quality stuff!


Fantastic offering of drone/pad/choir-ish sounds

With 150MB of samples this offers 12 various sounds – all from the long/slow category, but each distinct. Couple of those, especially last few patches are really choir-like. Great quality.
