Incantations VIII - Otherworldly

Incantations VIII began as an experiment in Microtuning.

I programmed 7 different Invocations using the Anomaly VSTi (Wusik V6 Engine). 2 instances were used, each one using 2 Wavesequences. So each Invocation has 4 vocal parts. These were put through an FX chain and then sampled.

Each instance was sampled on its own through the FX chain. So each Incantation was broken down into two parts.

These were also then Microtuned using the tunings available in the Anomaly instrument.

I spent a few days sorting through and experimenting with them, finally settling on the tunings listed below:

Dorian Enharmonic

Double-Tie Circular

Lydian Enharmonic

Perrett 14 Tone

Phrygian Enharmonic

Pythagorean Phi as 5th

Star Hexagonal 13 Tone

Superparticular 17 Tone

Each Incantation was then sampled using these tunings, again broken down into two parts.

The Incantation(x)a files are mostly male voices. The Incantation(x)b files are mostly female.

This resulted in 14 normal tuned Incantations, and 112 Microtuned Incantations.

Normally these files would then be run through several more FX chains but for this release I wanted to keep the processing of the sounds to a minimum.


Incantations VIII - Otherworldly contains 126 SFZ/WAV files and is 682 Mb.

There are presets for Wusik V6/V7/Anomaly and Kontakt V 5.5.2 and higher.
