Hollow Sun release their Roland VP330 sample library for Kontakt 01/07/10
As seen a couple of days ago in a video preview, Hollow Sun has released a new library featuring the Roland VP330 Vocoder Plus. Here's what they have to say about it...
Well known for its vocoder, this keyboard also offered a swirling string synth and unique 'Human Voice' settings which could produce some wonderful, ethereal chorale sounds - and when the strings and choral sounds are combined, you can create a massive wash of sound which is on offer here.
This comes courtesy of a collaboration with one Matthias Shuster in Germany who still has his beloved VP330 in his studio.
Well... when I say 'studio', I mean a treasure trove brimming with analog goodies such as ARP2600, Polyvoks and other enviable and rare analogue beauties.
This has to be THE definitive version of the instrument...
Long, 24-bit multi-samples recorded in stereo with the VP330's lush 'ensemble' effect that gives a wide stereo panorama. Each vocal register (male and female) has been sampled separately. Furthermore, the raw choral sounds have been sampled without the ensemble adding extra flexibility beyond most VP330 libraries and all these - together with the strings - can be mixed and layered using custom scripting in the Kontakt version much like having the real thing in front of you.
