Singer Cait McWhir, originally hailing from Ireland, draws her inspiration from almost 20 years of exploration with Indian, Balkan, Middle-Eastern & Celtic vocal styles. She has an incredible versatility allowing her to freely cross between conventional folklore to ancient Sanskrit chants and Vedic mantras to free improvisation in self-made languages. The library is constructed from over a thousand different vocal phrases covering over 15 hours of recording material. The phrases are divided into a variety of categories varying from some of the oldest songs known to man from the ancient Sanskrit chants to free improvisational phrases. The library has specific patches such as Balkan, Lullaby, Sanskrit Chants, Witch Chants and so forth. In addition some phrases in the library were recorded 2-3 times, which allows for a more broad type of vocal sound by layering the same phrase two or three times.
As part of the Forgotten Voices Series, Cait Solo Vocals follows programming and editing techniques that allow you to sculpt and morph phrases by adjusting the mod wheel and pitch bend. The mod wheel controls the sample starting point, so you can trigger offset anywhere you want in the phrases. The pitch bender allows you to time-stretch and compress the phrase. Special key switching also allows you to adjust to root pitch of all phrases in a patch by up to +/- 3 semitones. The combination between sample-offset control, root pitch control and time-stretch / compression allows users to seamlessly morph different phrases together, which brings endless possibilities for creating new phrases.
In addition Cait contains a bonus set of over 40 unique vocal ambiences made by Steven Tavaglione (Instrumentalist and Sound Designer; Wall-E, American Beauty, CSI, Supernatural and 100s other movies/shows/games). All the ambiences are made from Cait source material, so they seamlessly blend with her voice and are amazing for instant scoring. Most core vocal phrase and ambient instrument patches are also available in the EXS24 format, although time stretching and sample offset features are not supported.
