Blinksonic, a Reaktor ensemble developer released this week a very special product to create unusual vocal sounds. VOZ° works in a new way and is not really comparable with other vocal processing plugin or ensemble. They use for this Reaktor instrument-effect the formants of the human vocal as an oscillation source inside an sampling tool. Sounds very promising and different than other music production. For me, this product shows beautiful again that some developers try to create very special instruments which allows musicians and sound designer new timbres for tracks. I love this kind of products due of the possibilities to create new sonic timbres. 

The instrument concept What about using human vocal formant as an oscillation source inside an enhanced sampling tool ?
VOZ° is an instrument which synthesizes a real singer from a list of vocal articulations samples.This original concept rests on a complete sampling engine which enables the creation of multi layer evolved voice combinations. From choirs pads introduction, backing vocals, rising screams, funky hits, experimental sound fx, to playable vocal parts…

VOZ° explores various aspects on how vocal sound material can be operated in a virtual instrument and allows to inject a dose of human soul in modern electronic composition.
