Piano Choir

A haunting vocal sound created from singing into a piano....

The story

I recently saw a concert for newly composed contemporary works. One of the stand out pieces for me was for piano and soprano.
Near the end of the piece the soprano sang into the piano while the sustain pedal was held down.
It created a beautiful decaying sound with the sound of a choir.

The Piano Choir library is my attempt to recreate that sound. I sang into a piano with the sustain pedal down, and processed the sounds.
Enjoy. :]

  • Effected Vocals

    I love that this sample pack was born from a desire to experiment, to try something new, and to be musically adventurous. I think that one of the best parts of the PB community is that we can create and share things that worked great for us. They don't have to be commercially viable. To me, the best part of my journey as a composer is trying new things and learning new things, and so this library is pretty inspirational on those grounds. If you're looking for something that sounds like treated vocals coming from a bandpass source, this could be the answer.

  • Pretty dark and almost too muddy

    There are some interesting characteristics about this one, but the lack of GUI or any controls will make it hard to play and/or to program. The samples seem good, but they lean towards the muddy territory which can become a real pain in the mixing stages. The range is kind of limited and the panning in most -if not all- patches seems to be off towards the left. It needs some work!

  • A little bit quiet

    Yes, I think I will be able to use this sample pack in my ambient creations... a little on the quiet side and I have to boost by 12dB to match the level of my other Decent Sampler libraries... a great concept though :-
