Stunning Soul and Gospel Vocal Samples

Hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed ETHERA comes another fabulous vocal Kontakt instrument the ETHERA SOUL EDITION which combines stunning Soul and Gospel vocal samples, incredible simplicity and a high degree of playability all packed into the same beautiful Kontakt interface for total ease-of use and ultimate sound manipulation.

Ethera Soul Edition GUI 1

Ethera Soul Edition features 4 main instruments:

  • The Phrases section includes 12 patches full of soul and gospel vocal phrases. These can be mixed and combined and using the two Off-Set controls you can change the starting points of the samples using the waveform display. This allows you to create new phrases and to personalise the existing phrases. These phrases can be manipulated in many ways by the GUI controls including time-stretching or syncing to your host application.

  • The Phrase Builder is a set of samples and phrases programmed to act as an intelligent entity allowing the composer to live-play any articulation, on any pitch or chord.  The Phrase Builder is available in Solo Legato & Polyphonic modes. You can use up to 20 individual steps (similar to a step sequencer) to program your phrase as you wish. 

  • The Sustain section offers the ability to ‘play’ the voice of Ethera Soul using ‘ohs’ and ‘ahs’  and choirs in sustained modes.

  • The Choir Legato instrument features a choir and a Legato Expert interface which uses the powerful SIPS engine and is the main control for the Legato Phrases Builder. With this Tab you can change and control the cross-fade, blend and modulation offset amongst other controls. It will enable you to adjust the legato to suit your playing style. The Legato Expert interface is also available for use in the Phrase Builder Legato instrument.

Ethera Soul Edition GUI 2

ETHERA SOUL EDITION also comes fully equipped with a complete FX section that includes chorus, flanger and phaser, compressor, EQ, filter, convolution reverb, overdrive, delay, amp simulator and cabinet simulator.

Die Frau hat die absolute Soul-Gospel Stimme. *** ***, "weiße" Italienerin, man glaubt sie in einer Gosperlkirche in Missisippi Delta zu finden. Man kriegt die Kinnlade nicht mehr zu, wenn die mal losröhrt. Souliges Alt-register. Hohe Sopranfiepser irgendwo anders suchen. Wunderbar inspiriernde Koloraturen. Auch viele Chorstimmen, die ich anderswo noch nie fand, da singen wohl noch andere mit. Unerschöpfliches Material. Nackenhaare garantiert...schau doch nochmal "Gladiator" an...

Ganz ehrlich ? Hatte mir mehr versprochen klanglich wie auch in der Bedienung. Es ist nicht falsch wenn man diese Edition hat...Reklame würde ich dafür nicht machen. Es gibt mit Sicherheit besseres...

Stunningly Good! Brilliant for adding high quality vocals to music. This version has more flexibility in terms of articulations than Ethera 2.0 although the actual library size is smaller. But what you get is so unbelievable good it's just not funny. I've used high quality virtual instruments, and have to say, there is nothing like this out there that I know of. If you're a songwriter, composer, mixer/producer, this is a fantastic resource that has a broad range of applications. ! Note: You need a full version of Native Instrument's "Kontakt" (check the details for the current minimum version) to use this product. I use this in musical pieces, and to create vocal guides for songs. While you can't get "Clara" to sing all your lyrics, you can really get a great sense of how a vocal melody should sound so a singer can use this as a reference. This is so good I'm using it extensively as my go to for Rock/Pop/Soul type pieces, and it can certainly be used for broad application to taste. Ethera Soul Edition fully deserves 5 Stars.
