The story

I always wanted to find interesting ways of creating mesmerizing textures using vocals. That’s when I asked myself the question ‘what if I run them through amp sims?’. After hours of tuning and effect processing, this is the result. I have tried to have a go at Kontakt scripting and created 4 knobs, cutoff, warmth, reverb, and reverb fx to take into note the honest and amazing reviews on my previous sample instruments, and I went through to sample 3 round robins for shorts. Hope you enjoy it!

  • Absolutely Crazyily amazing

    This is one of the most craziest find i have found on Pianobook. So so cool. The vocal driven texture is just mind boggling to my hears. Love it soo much. Has a kind of Dune-ish texture to it. Could see it playing behind in that film scape

  • Authentic sounding

    I really like that it sounds like a real voice, tethering on the edge of breaking, while sung through the amp. It definitely inspires a certain type of writing to be used with.

    The knobs are a bit weird, in that they are turned horizontally instead of the typical vertical movement

    F5 seems to have a knock at the start of the note, which sounds great but makes it inconsistent with the rest of notes.

  • Electrifying!

    This reminds me of how Michael Winslow sounds when he does electric guitar solos with his voice! If you don't know what I'm saying, this is a heavily processed vocal lines that sound like a distorted electric guitar. These are some sounds that you won't easily find anywhere so it's definitely worth checking out.

    As a downside, the sounds are either mostly panned to the right or to the left, which may seem a little weird at first but nothing dealbreaking. The reverbs do a good job, but be careful because they can dramatically increase the loudness.

    The GUI is alright, I guess it could use a different font and a darkened background, so everything is much clearer.
