Get Those Roger Troutman Talkbox Sounds

Gospel Musicians releases Talkbox Jr. sample and synthesis library      28/08/13

Gospel Musicians has released the Talkbox Jr. sample and synthesis library for the UVI Workstation. They tell us that the Talkbox Jr. is a tribute to the legendary sound of the late/great Roger Troutman and is a sample library featuring the most important vowel sounds and phrases from the classic talkbox sound of the 90's. In keeping with the 90's theme, the library also contains some of the classic synths, basses, leads, and organ sounds of that time.

A spokesperson told us, "The library also includes the 'official' talkbox lead patches from the Yamaha DX100, which has been used by talkbox enthusiast all over the world. These patches are designed to be used in conjunction with your mechanical talkbox. Now, instead of using the smaller 49-key keyboard to feed the talkbox sounds, a user can use the sample library with any controller they wish. The UVI Workstation also sports a multiple synthesis engine; as a result, we converted many of the lead, bass and talkbox sounds into wavetables. This allows for greater sonic possibilities when used with Pulse-Width-Modulation."

•    7-Vowel Sound Presets.
•    5-Keyswitch Phrases.
