    Introducing Articul8 Vocal Loops

    Introducing Articul8 Vocal Loops

    I’d like to proudly present to you all, a new era in sound design here at SoundOracle.net with the release of my first ever Vocal Pack, Articul8. Using powerful tools like “Top Of The Line” Microphones, Preamps, Equalizers, and Compressors. Each loop was recorded at McNally Smith College of Music by students that major in production, vocal performance, and songwriting. I was able to capture harmonically rich and warm vocal takes from these world class, singers for you to use as you see fit in your musical creations.

    These harmonically rich and saturated vocals can serve as the perfect contrast to help give your beats more movement and melodic variation. More specifically, the Vocal Chain used in this process contained a Telefunken U-47 Tube Condenser Mic ran through Great River Mic Preamps, into an Empirical Labs Distressor into an API 550b EQ. To add even more contrast, I have also created two versions of each vocal loop. These include, one vocal loop that is ran through FXs and another that is just the original natural vocal untreated.
