Winter Voices

Winter Voices

Story

To help rescue Christmas 2020 we decided to make a very special gift for the Pianobook community… and asked them to help make it.

The worlds biggest sample library made from 1000 vocal (and vocal-like) sounds donated from over 400 submissions from all over the world!

Winter Voices is a available in both Kontakt 5 format (requiring the full paid version of Kontakt) and Decent Sampler format (available for free).

Donate

2020 has been a very tough year for the creative industry and, whilst Winter Voices (like all Pianobook instruments) is free, if you enjoy it and are able provide a small donation, Pianobook is supporting #WeMakeEvents, which splits donation across a range of charities supporting the arts during this hard time, including Acting for Others, Music Support, Stagehand and #MakeItBlue. Donate here:

Why the "baked-in" octaves?

I truly hesitate to critique a free library, but these beautiful patches would be SO much more useful if there weren’t octaves “baked” into them. Why, why, why do people do that? I wish creators would stick to unisons, allowing us to create chords or octaves as needed. As soon as I press a key and hear an octave, you’ve lost me. Bummer, because these are otherwise lovely.
If there’s ever an opportunity to revisit these and remove the octaves, that would be most welcome! 😊

Totally different from what I expected

If you put so many voices and vocal effects together, it must result in a messy, muddy sound – at least that’s what I thought. This sound set has been mixed and matched in such a way it has resulted in an ethereal soundscape with a character of its own. I love it and I surely will be using it in future projects!
