Incantations 2

Incantations 2 consists of 24 all new sounds made from vocal samples in the DNR Collaborative Developers Pack as well as some additional vocal samples of Daniel Kemp and Leilah Wendell and some vocal samples derived from public domain Gregorian Chants. These samples were then programmed as wavesequences in Wusikstation and multi-sampled, resulting in the 24 chants of Incantations.

Incantations 2 is available in a .SFZ/.WAV version and a .sf2 (soundfont) version.

The .SFZ/.WAV version consists of 24 multi-sampled stereo sounds and is 600 Mb. There are also 24 .nki files to load the sounds for Kontakt V2 and above.

The .sf2 (soundfont) version consists of 1 .sf2 file with 24 multi-sampled mono sounds and is 300 Mb.

All sounds are looped and each chant is between 20 and 45 seconds long.

There are no presets, this is a sample set only.


Note: The few samples derived from public domain Gregorian Chants were created by taking less than a second of audio from a vocal and then combining this with itself by crossfading in an audio editor multiple times until I had a sample long enough to loop. This was a long and tedious process undertaken originally as an exercise during those nights I awoke at 2 AM and could not return to sleep. While the atmosphere between 2 and 6AM, boosted by multiple cups of coffee, is conducive to this type of exercise - I would not recommend it unless you really cannot sleep. But it is peaceful, and frustrating at the same time.

Incantations V

For myself, this became a study of Light and Dark - and how easily one becomes the other.....

It did not start out that way.... I simply thought, what would happen if you took the same source sounds and the same programming and then applied a difference of microtuning and detuning to the voices....

You can directly compare the sounds between each soundset as they share the same first word in their names.

The Incantations Sampler

The Incantations Sampler contains 3 sounds from each Incantations volume:

From Incantations 1 - Fading Paths, Memories and Starlight

From Incantations 2 - Evening Fall, Fade Away and Path of Night

From Incantations 3 - Incantation 4, Incantation 9 and Incantation 12

From Incantations IV - Angels Falling, Cautious Angels and Lost Angels

There are two folders:

Convolved and Original.

The Original folder holds 12 single sampled sounds as SFZ/WAV files pulled directly from the Original Incantations volumes.

The Convolved folder holds 12 single sampled sounds as SFZ/WAV files but each sound was run through up to 4 impulse responses each and then mixing the results together in the Anomaly VSTi - volume balancing and panning the sources into each other to create one whole sound.

The impulse responses being used come from Spirit Canyon Audio's Spectral Relativity set, and each of the up to four per sound are selected carefully to provide something different to the end sound.

These sounds were all looped using the exact same loop points as the Original, un-modified sounds.

This way you get to check out both the original sounds as well as sounds that have been, not mangled, but adjusted.

Each folder is 68.2 Mb in size, for a total of 136 Mb. There are only SFZ/WAV files provided.
