The Voice Of Renaissance And Baroque

Best Service has released Altus, The Voice of Renaissance from Eduardo Tarilonte. Altus comes with the latest NI Kontakt Player.

A spokesperson told us, "Often misunderstood and surrounded by mystery the counter tenor is another milestone in Eduardo Tarilonte series of exceptional voices, Altus brings you a real counter tenor for your Renaissance and Baroque music productions, for films, documentaries, video games and new age music."

Best Service describes Altus as a unique solo vocal library featuring José Hernández Pastor, a countertenor with a magnificent expression and a truly beautiful and unique voice.
Altus is aimed at easily creating your own ultra-realistic melodies, without using any phrases. The spokesperson had this to say, "Altus offers a powerful and innovative word builder which combines 26 words (136 elements including words and their syllables) with 5 true legato and portamento vowels (a, e, i, o, u) All at your fingertips in one patch. Altus introduces a great and innovative new feature, allowing you to connect any word with all 5 true legato vowels to build realistic melodies without using any pre-recorded phrase."

  • 5 different true legatos and portamenti (a, e, i, o, u)
  • a powerful word builder with words, 2 different articulations (fast and slow speeds).
  • words can be splitted to offer a total of 136 words/syllables
