The story


In the times of division and conflict, we wanted to create a small vocal instrument symbolizing the unity of people and different nations.

Volody – Peaceful
Olena – Sunlight
Iryna – Peace

This instrument contains 3 processed vocal patches, 2 from Ukraine and 1 from Russia, along with two scripted legato patches. In our initial plan there was going to be more singers, but most of the session singers available were unable to work as they had fled the country or were sheltering under ground.

The small mission of this instrument is to help those that live in the conflict zones or need help more than ever.
Please considering donation to the following charity instead of tipping for this instrument.

Peace out!

The team:

Heikki Ketola Project lead, sampling
Ben Berkenbosch Sampling
Miloslav Burda Scripting
Paul-Edouard Lacolomberie UI design

Elin Norberg Lead vocals

Created as a collaboration project in the OPIA community.

  • Lovely voices for a wonderful cause

    This is a nice instrument! Very clean, well-recorded samples. Right out of the box it sounds very nice. Thanks to the lovely GUI and simple controls, it doesn't take long to tweak the sounds to your liking. If I were to suggest any improvements, perhaps envelope controls on the GUI. This can make some really wonderful sounding pads with a slow attack. Kiitos, Heikki! Слава Україні!

  • Beautiful concept, amazingly curated

    This is a stunning creation, from the GUI to the voices within. They all blend really well to create a beautiful soundscape of vocals. Well done OPIA crew!

  • Gives you the chills!

    This is an incredible patch created with love in those terrible times people live in this modern day. The three separate vocal layers are able to create an amazing ambience filled with emotions, and it is guaranteed you will get chills down your spine. It is simple and straightforward, yet overall it is very well crafted and definitely recommended without a doubt.

  • Full and haunting sound

    This has just a wonderfully rich, haunting sound out of the box. Play with the balance of the three vocalists to adjust the sound, in particular the voice of Iryna is just stunning. This is beautifully recorded. Thank you.
