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.

  • Spooky and nicely ambient library

    So nice! Very soft and a little spooky textured library. It will give such a unique texture to the music!! Even for a horror movie!

  • 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!

  • Soul of the moor

    The cosy, ghostly mood of "Clay Choir TimeMach2" makes me think of the chill and mist of the moors that surrounded my old home town.

    Beautiful, the initial lift of the voice and the slight beat that gets lost in the reverb.

    Playing this instrument is a recommendable pleasure.

  • A very nice synthesized choir...

    This library is perfectly put together with really flowing and longing sounds with a easy-to-understand GUI. Not much bad can be said about this instrument. The time machine patch does have some variations in pitch as the note plays, so it may not work super well in combination with other instruments, but it sounds great on its own. I would definitely download this instrument if you're looking for a useful synthesized choir in your scoring toolbox. Fabulous job!

  • Weird Modulated Vocals

    This is really cool and weird, its a very interesting choir that is seemingly always evolving and stays interesting. its very beautiful towards the mid range and the low end is massive. My only complaint would be that, i don't know is distortion or saturation was added in post or if its just a byproduct of the way it was recorded but especially in the high end it gets very distorted. I really love the sound but i wish i could access a cleaner version of it
