The Human Form As Sound Generator


SONiVOX have announced the immediate availability of their latest offering, Anatomy, a sample library for use with Native Instruments’ Kontakt 2 or Kontakt 3. Anatomy is SONiVOX’s re-imagination of the human form as an infinite template of sound, offering up over eight-hundred unique and uniquely playable instruments that transform the human body into one expansive collection of physiological melody and rhythm. The company say that Anatomy sonically explores the human condition in ways never attempted previously, delivering users a unique new palette of sonic colors and textures.
Here’s all the details in their own words…
Making it easier for users to navigate through the mysteries of the body, SONiVOX has separated all instruments included in Anatomy into the following two categories. Man: The organic perspective. Hundreds of leads, pads, kits and effects that encompass the full sonic terrain and delicate inflection the human body can muster. Simply presented but expertly enhanced with real-time controllers for additional manipulation. Singing and screaming. Snoring and roaring.
Machine: Lovingly effected and manipulated interpretations of the human condition as it might be perceived through the binary brain cells of a bloodless future race. Agitated androids. Slumbering cyborgs who dream of electric sheep. Cinemascapes of hallucinatory terror and funhouse anxiety. Transform. Transmogrify. Transmit. Both categories feature the following instrument sub-categories:
  • Vocal Pads and Leads
    Vocal pads and leads, from the ethereal tones of Tibetan tuvan throat singing to humming, whistling and more.
  • Drum Kits
    The definitive collection of vocal beat box percussion. Over 50 unique kits with a massive tool box of additional kicks and snares for even more flexibility. Boston beat box guru Steve Foxx stepped up to the mic and laid down a staggering array of sound that the SONiVOX design team edited and programmed into intuitively playable patches that are sure to suit every type of music from rock and hip hop to acid jazz and electro funk. Even better, Anatomy's kits are GM compliant making them easily droppable into existing sequences.
  • Body Percussion
    Snaps, claps, foot stomps, and heartbeats. Imagine the heart as the rhythm section and ultimate timekeeper.
    Foley & FX
    From the ordinary to the extraordinarily strange. Blips, burps, gurgles, growls, groans, and nostril snorts. Laughing, moaning, and simulated emotional breakdowns. Plenty to satisfy ones appetite for the bizarre and unusual.
  • Choirs
    A complement of male and female choirs and choral groups with a variety of articulations and programming variations. Ethereal voices and intimate utterings.

SONiVOX claims Anatomy is a sample library that needs to be played and heard to be believed. To help facilitate this, SONiVOX is offering up some free fully-functioning Kontakt format instruments designed to give a taste of what can be found in Anatomy. These free samples as well as MP3 demos are downloadable from the SONiVOX website.
Pricing and Availability:
Anatomy is available now at the SONiVOX webstore and SONiVOX dealers worldwide with a MSRP of $219. More information:
