Voice of Rapture Header

Voice of Rapture: The Soprano represents a new benchmark in solo vocal sampling for classical operatic voices. We recorded in a close, totally dry studio environment with exceptional microphones and preamps to capture every subtle nuance. We then carefully prepared and edited each sample and hand-programmed each element into an unrivaled performance interface that delivers both efficiency and control. We’ve also included our comprehensive FX Rack panel, with multi-effects, compression, EQ, amp/speaker simulation and convolution reverb, featuring dozens of our most popular custom recorded rooms, halls, cathedrals and otherworldly fx impulses easily available right through the interface. The Soprano brings together superior programming, performance, quality and living, breathing soul into an unprecedented solo vocal solution that you will not find matched anywhere else!

Releasetime Awards


Soundiron Voice of Rapture: The Soprano präsentiert eine außergewöhnliche, virtuose und vielseitige Sopranistin: Dr. Nichole Dechaine. Deren Präsentation gelingt in vorzüglicher Klangqualität, nah mikrofoniert, detailreich und intim.

Nichole Dechaines Stimme verfügt über mehr als zwei Oktaven Umfang, eine lebhafte Dynamik und eine erstaunliche Wandlungsfähigkeit. Auch gepfiffene Melodien, gesprochene und gehauchte Gedichte und Geflüstertes sind an Bord.

Die Library zielt in erster Linie auf Filmmusikkompositionen und artverwandte Genres, kann jedoch auch weit darüber hinaus eingesetzt werden.

Zahlreiche temposynchrone Phrasen laden zur Erstellung sowohl klassisch ambitionierter als auch extravaganter Songs ein, ein Step-Sequencer bietet hohes Experimentier-Potenzial.

Sehr natürlich klingen die True-Legato-Vokalgesänge, deren Dynamik man bei Bedarf zusätzlich durch eine Animation des Swell-Parameters beeinflussen kann.

Eine Besonderheit stellen die Polysustains dar, kurze Phrasen, bei denen man die Noten während des Playbacks beliebig ändern und kleine Melodien einspielen kann.

Der Beipack von Ambiences, die unter Verwendung der Originalaufnahmen erstellt wurden, stellt eine nicht zu unterschätzende Fundgrube kunstvoll gestalteter, teils minutenlanger Klangevolutionen dar – eigenständige Kompositionen oder ideale Backgrounds für die Filmmusik.

Obwohl The Soprano auch auf der Vollversion von Native Instruments Kontakt 4 läuft, ist Kontakt 5 wegen seines deutlich besseren Timestretch-Algorithmus anzuraten.

Zusammengefasst: In Umfang, Qualität, technischer Ausstattung und unter Berücksichtigung des sehr fairen Preises ist The Soprano derzeit konkurrenzlos unter den gesampelten Sopran-Solostimmen. Konsequenterweise verleihen wir unsere beiden Awards.
