Blinksonic tells us that VOZ°, their new instrument for Reaktor, is a new sampling concept based on vocal formants. Here's the story in their own words... This ensemble for Reaktor 6 resynthesizes a real singer voice from a list of vocal articulation samples that can be sketched into multi layer singing parts and played chromatically trough a powerful 4 voice sampler and a suite of 10 effects.
From mutant choirs, backing vocals, rising screams, funky hits, experimental sound fx, to playable vocal parts, VOZ° explores various aspects on how vocal sound material can be operated in a virtual instrument and allows to inject a dose of human soul in modern electronic composition.
VOZ° comes with a collection of 1520 basic waveforms including elements of speaking, screaming, whispering, breathing, yelling, laughing, growling, throating... All kind of vowels, phonetics, accents and onomatopoeias... Even whole words and piece of phrases ready to be used as sources of oscillation that can be launched with in predefined random order.
With 100 presets ready to go, a smart modulation system, NKS compatible, and many other features, VOZ° promises noisy, punky and unconventional experiences, for both lyrical and epic sonic adventures.
