OPUS Interface


Whenever you need solo vocals as an effect rather than a traditional singer, Voices of Passion gathers the uniquely beautiful voices of female singers from around the world and makes them available to you in a single library. As a media composer tasked with depicting a sprawling landscape, a single note from one of these singers will throw it into sharp relief. You can produce an incredibly expressive performance with ornaments, vibrato, and all the subtleties you need to produce the exact soundscape for the job.


You can add these voices to any song in rich, full stereo without any risk of imaging issues. Add in the built-in chorus and convolution reverb effects, and you’ll get a haunting solo performance perfect for film and video game scores as well as New Age artists who want to push the boundaries of Western music. There are two primary ways to use this library, which can be combined at will: loading up any of over 1,000 pre-recorded phrases and allowing the original performances of the singers to carry the nuances, or using it for its true legato and weaving a melody of your choosing, in which you have as much fine control as you like.


When you want purity and a simple, transparent performance, this collection will quickly become your weapon of choice. Rather than unrestrained expression, the voices of America focus on an eerily clear tone that feels as though it could stop the progression of time.


Gentle vibrato and a smooth and mellow performance. Play around with different keyswitches, and you’ll find that some notes contain phrases with a gentle rhythmic cadence perfect for adding a chant-like effect to your music.


This is where you’ll find some of the most dramatic performances and full phrases that stand on their own. This collection excels when played against a minimal orchestral or ambient bed with few moving parts, in order to emphasize the distinct characteristics of this voice.


The perfect way to create a haunting, microtonal performance that embodies the rich history of the Middle East. Holding down a single note produces an extended phrase rich in vibrato and dramatic pitch inflections that are perfect for film and game scores, especially with a soft orchestra or synth pad background.


If you’re someone who enjoys getting extremely granular when massaging your mockups, this instrument is an excellent resource to have at your fingertips. You have complete control over individual vowels and words, and you can construct ethereal vocal performances from the ground up.
