Clay’s Hose Choir

Vocals recorded through a shop-vac hose...

The story

So I sampled my ‘singing’ for the Winter Voices project. Since I had the samples I made a small Kontakt library with them.

I created the samples by singing into a shop-vac hose via a funnel at the mouth end, with an SM57 at the other end.

I hope you find these useful.

  • Ambient Choral Goodness

    There are some really neat choral pad sounds here which are really useful. The resonance of the shop vac tube really adds something unique. This is a novel and useable sample pack!

  • I absolutely LOVE this

    This is just great. While it is very wet even with the reverb bypassed, the ambience that all the patches can generate is magnificent. It is full of character, and I especially love the ModWheel wavy distortions when you put it all the way up. Unfortunately it won't give you 5 stars because of the GUI that I don't really like. Such a quality instrument needs some much better graphics to accompany it!

  • A great idea and concept, but fairly simple sound

    I think the idea behind this is really nice and creative, but the sound itself is rather normal and not too versatile.
