The Tenor Banner

Voice of Rapture: The Tenor, the next in the series of pristine solo vocal sampling libraries, is designed as a companion to Voice of Rapture: The Soprano library. Recorded with Tenor virtuoso Brian Thorsett, the library captures the classic, powerful operatic Tenor sound through a wide range of playable chromatic content and emotionally charged melodic phrases. From a belting, bombastic fortissimo sound to a gentle and soft pianissimo, The Tenor provides the creative freedom, power and flexibility making it the best solo Tenor vocal library in the world.

We recorded Brian in a close, totally dry studio environment with both cardioid and condenser microphones and pristine 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 Tenor brings together superior programming, performance, quality and living, breathing soul into an unprecedented and truly unmatched professional operatic solo vocal solution.

Brin ThorsettBrian Thorsett has been seen and heard in over 90 diverse operatic roles. His 2012-3 highlights include the title character in Rameau’s Pygmalion, Nemorino in L’Elisir d’Amore and Jupiter in Semele. As a concert singer, Brian retains a stylistically diversified repertoire of over 200 works, which has taken him to concert halls across the US and Europe. He is a graduate of San Francisco Opera’s Merola Program, Glimmerglass Opera’s Young American Artist program, American Bach Soloists Academy, the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme at Aldeburgh, England and Music Academy of the West. When not singing, Brian is on faculty at Santa Clara University where he teaches Beginning Voice.

 
Functionality

Voice of Rapture: The Tenor features amazing True Legato sustains for Ah (p), Ah (F) and Oo (p) vowels using the long-form method for unparalleled quality and realism, with infinite/natural sustains, natural release, 3-voice polyphonic support and plenty of fine-tuning parameters. In addition to the True Legato sustains, the library includes standard dynamic Ah, Ee, Eh, Mm, Oh and Oo pure vowel sustains, with or without vibrato. You’ll also find 25 fully shapable staccato syllables and a dozen sustaining chromatic chants, each with synchronized legato, EZ syllable/word switching. All of this chromatic content spans a playable key range of over 2 octaves, with total performance controls.

Included in the library are improvised melodic phrases at 80 & 100 bpm, with collections rooted in the keys of A#, C, D, E, F#, and G# (with both major and minor variants). We also recorded similar collections of melodic phrases based on the traditional Angelic Salutation (“Hail Mary”) in Latin, as well as sections of a classic French poem from the mid 1800s by René-François Sully-Prudhomme, also spanning a full set of root keys, as well as an eclectic collection of humming phrases. And of course there are plenty of vocal effects, such as whispers, laughing, coughing, breathing, sweeps, swells and more. Finally, we took the source material and contorted it into a broad selection of ambiences, drones, atmospheres, pads, leads and special FX instruments.

Voice of Rapture the Tenor is a quality library for Kontakt users, with an extremely high quality sound. Brian Thorsett is such a beautiful singer. I'm currently using it for Medieval / Fantasy / Relious music. It's very Filmscore, if that's your thing. I'm only touching what it's capable of, very happy with this purchase.

Die Samples sind von hoher Qualität, die Stimme ist insgesamt weich und mischt sich gut im Mix. Die fertigen Phrases hätte ich persönlich nicht gebraucht.
