Winter Voices

A vocal library featuring hundreds of voices contributed by the Pianobook community.

The story

To help rescue Christmas 2020 we decided to make a very special gift for the Pianobook community… and asked them to help make it.

The worlds biggest sample library made from 1000 vocal (and vocal-like) sounds donated from over 400 submissions from all over the world!

Winter Voices is a available in both Kontakt 5 format (requiring the full paid version of Kontakt) and Decent Sampler format (available for free).

Donate

2020 has been a very tough year for the creative industry and, whilst Winter Voices (like all Pianobook instruments) is free, if you enjoy it and are able provide a small donation, Pianobook is supporting #WeMakeEvents, which splits donation across a range of charities supporting the arts during this hard time, including Acting for Others, Music Support, Stagehand and #MakeItBlue.

  • Woah! Pure inspiration.

    This is full if different sounds but I particularly love the frozen textures as a "wall of sound" type pad.

  • Just beautiful - one of the best I have in my collection

    Wonderful slow attack - great tones - I accidentally stacked a few and that was even more beautiful! Bravo!

  • So amazing

    I remember this whole rollout and drop last year. It was such unexciting time. A new instrument everyday of december all culminating in this release. Im sure i speak for everyone in the community when i say we are blown away by this. Knowing how much went into making this makes it such a treasure. It just keeps evolving and never feels boring. voices, noises and textures just keep folding in on one another. The GUI is pretty solid and you get a fair amount of patches with different vibes. Its a beautiful frosty choir/ ambient pad that can just keep looping forever. This was such an exciting time for pianobook and i still remember it like it was yesterday. Even-though there's so much going on you still hear individual voices and things coming in which is so cool.
