Soundiron has announced the release of a solo operatic bass vocal library for Kontakt featuring the voice of Joseph Trumbo.

The library includes a variety of playable chromatic articulations and melodic elements, recorded in a dry studio environment with 2 microphone types. There are 3 True Legato types, with ‘Ah’, ‘Oh’ and ‘Oo’ vowels. Standard vowel sustain types include Ah, Ee, Eh, Oh and Oo sounds, recorded with piano and forte dynamic variants of each, plus mezzo-piano humming sustains. There are also staccatos for each vowel with 8x round-robin variations per note. You’ll also find 23 Latin staccato syllables and words with 3x round-robin, tempo-synching and time stretching.

There are 12 sustaining chromatic Latin chants, each with synchronized legato and tempo-syncing. The Phrase section includes 1466 melodic elements at fast and slow core tempos, with real-time tempo-syncing, time-stretching, root key selection and transposition control. The phrases come in 5 main content categories: pure vowel, Latin, French, whistling and humming. Every preset includes a multi-fx rack. The library also includes vocal effects and sound-designed ambient vocal pads, soundscapes and atmospheres.
