Patchpool releases MetaVox for Alchemy

Patchpool MetaVox

Patchpool has announced the release of MetaVox, a sound library for the Alchemy sample manipulation synthesizer by Camel Audio.

MetaVox for Alchemy is build around the exceptional overtone and throat singing of Gareth Lubbe, a true master of his craft. As Gareth is actually a professional orchestral viola player this library also contains several patches with viola sounds, the viola being a string instrument with a great resemblance to the human voice. During the recording session we also recorded duets of Gareth singing and playing the viola at the same time, these sample make for some more beautiful and wondrous sounds in Alchemy.

There are also patches with female vocals, using samples which were recorded during a recent session with Frauke Albert, a renown German vocalist (soprano), working mainly in the field of contemporary music.

As an additional string instrument some sounds also use violin samples, another instrument which has a very voice-like character and blends beautifully with the vocals sounds in this library.

MetaVox features

  • 1.8 Gigabyte of original samples (wav) and resynthed files (.aaz).
  • 56 patches with 8 variations each in Alchemy’s Remix Pad, all Performance Controllers and both x/y-pads are assigned for each patch.
  • All samples in this library were recorded with 3 Neumann microphones in L-C-R in 48 Khz/24 Bit, a U87 as the center mic – a stereo set of KM 184 for L-R.
  • Requires full version of Alchemy (version 1.55 and higher). It does not work with the Alchemy player version.

MetaVox is available to purchase for 36 EUR.

Patchpool introduces MetaVox for Alchemy

Patchpool MetaVox

Patchpool has announced MetaVox, a sample library for the Alchemy sample manipulation instrument by Camel Audio.

MetaVox for Alchemy focusses on the exceptional overtone singing of Gareth Lubbe, a true master of his craft who recently became the first professor for overtone singing in Germany. As Gareth is actually a professional orchestral viola player this library also contains several patches with viola sounds, the viola being a string instrument with a great resemblance to the human voice. During the recording session we also recorded duets of Gareth singing and playing the viola at the same time, these sample will make for some more beautiful and wondrous Alchemy sounds.

There will also be several patches with female vocals using samples which were recorded during a recent session with Frauke Albert, a renown german vocalist (soprano), working mainly in the field of contemprary music.

As an additional string instrument I will also use some recently recorded violin samples, another instrument which has a very voice-like character and blends beautifully with the vocals sounds in this library.

Besides using the original vocal and string samples (and resynthed derivatives thereof) for making the Alchemy patches, I am fascinated in the microcosmic interior of harmonics, so I am producing quite a few electronic derivatives of the samples, created by e.g. detaching the harmonics from the root note, then deleting the root note only leaving the harmonics which are then furtherly processed, timestretched, spectralized, tuned to a tempered scale and more.

The MetaVox library is scheduled for release on September 9th, 2013. It is available to pre-order for 28 EUR (20% off regular 35 EUR).
