***Crossgrade for registered owners of at least one of the following libraries:
Cantus, Shevannai, Mystica, Altus or Era II Vocal Codex

Kwaya is an unrivaled choir library offering authentic African voices and chants. With Aba Taano from Uganda, Eduardo Tarilonte found the perfect choir for this long and intensely prepared project.

Kwaya is an ideal choice for every producer wanting to use distinctive and expressive African chants and vocals in their works. Kwaya stands for incomparable inspiration paired with unbeatable versatility – no matter if you work on movie- or television-soundtracks, thematic documentaries, musical compositions, atmospherical ambient themes or tribal-dance-tracks.

Kwaya allows you to create individual vocal and choir lines by arranging syllables in different pitches as well as voice effects with the typical sound of African vocalists.

The award-winning Aba Taano choir consists of four male and two female vocalists which were recorded separately for this library in Kontakt 5 Player format, allowing you to create individual vocal-ensembles to your specific needs. Being able to freely set the level and pan-positions for each voice, you are given full control over the sound of the choir, resulting in the highest possible versatility.

Kwaya offers:

  • 4 male solo voices
  • 2 female solo voices
  • 5 different true African style legatos (a, e, i, o, u)
  • "Mmmh articulation"
  • A powerful Phrase-Arranger with 20 phrases, 8 syllables each*
  • 40 words can be combined with true legato playing while the corresponding vowel is automatically selected
  • more than 700 voice effects*.
  • 16 soundscapes,
  • 10.000+ samples (mono, 44kHz, 24 bit), Library Size 7 GB uncompressed and 4.5 GB compressed
  • Free Kontakt Player included (Version 5.5 or higher required)

* All syllables are fantasy. Just some of the poems and vocal fx are in Ugandan language

In der Vergangenheit habe ich schon von dieser Library gehört und mich jetzt endlich entschlossen sie zu kaufen. Qualitativ eine hervorragende Library. Sie bietet viele Möglichkeiten und inspiriert mich sehr.DIe Samples sind sehr gut einsetzbar, nicht nur im Bereich der Filmvertonung. Einfach Klasse!
