From rich chamber-style choruses to punchy pop vocals, this library delivers the goods.

Synthesis

Whether you need to embellish your vocal patch with bass-heavy analog, or forge entirely synthetic granular textures, Augmented VOICES’ comes fully equipped with 4 flexible synth engines.

Augmented VOICES’ Advanced panel goes beneath its easy-to-use controls for massive customization and sound design flexibility when you need it. From sound sources to complex modulation, it’s all here.

It all starts with the sound engines. You have access to two layers, each of them containing two engines, for a total of 4 totally customized sound sources. Each sound source can utilize samples or any of the synth engines, and Augmented VOICES’ morphing creates a continuous evolving sound. You can also tap into settings like filter cutoff, sample width, and envelope times - make it your own.

Capturing magic

To ensure that Augmented VOICES’ delivers the exhilarating sounds you’re after, it first needs high-quality samples.

Over 80 hours of arranging, recording, and editing were overseen by leading sound designers, responsible for some of the greatest major-label vocal sounds in contemporary music (Universal Music, EMI, Warner Music, Sony BMG). The sessions took place in specialized studios in Hannover, Germany, using world-class mics and studio equipment from the likes of Neumann, Microtech Gefell, and Heritage Audio.

Featuring 21 male articulations and 30 female articulations, this focused library channels the true emotive power of the human voice, lifelike and stirring, and yours to manipulate.
