Crowd-Sourced Sample Instrument Released


Soniccouture has announced that their Crowdchoir project has been a great success.
The 'Crowd-choir' was an idea for a crowd-sourced sampled instrument, partly inspired by the 10cc track 'I'm not in love', which famously featured a vocal pad sound created by painstakingly overdubbing a single vocal note over and over again. The plan was to get hundreds of people all around the world to sing one note each from a 3 octave range - then layer these recordings in a sampler to create a unique vocal sound - a wash of different voices in different rooms in different countries. Each participant was provided with instructions on how best to record their note - which format, sample rate etc - and a web form by which they could upload the audio file along with their name and email address.
Soniccouture tells us that over 1000 people contributed in excess of 4000 notes over a 3 month period and the resulting audio was edited and processed into a truly unique sampler instrument which has now been released for Kontakt / EXS24 / Ableton Live formats.
Pricing and Availability:
The instrument is available now for £20 / €20 / $25.
All profits will be donated to The Red Cross charity.
