Internationally renowned, Terrie Odabi is a classically trained singer who studied under Gwen Brown, Bill Bell and the late John Patton. While traveling she started gaining interest in other cultures and languages from Latin to Spanish, from a variety of African to Middle Eastern dialects. Her incredible depth and understanding of music cultures were the premise of the library, which covers several African dialects to Gospel, Soul, RnB and more experimental types of singing.
The library contains over 5,000 phrases and sounds derived from over 20 hours of session material. The phrases are divided into a nomenclature that allows the composer to easy access the type of phrase he is looking for. An example of a phrase could be: “african_mama_koko_mp”. The first part (African) refers to the style, the second part (mama_koko) refers to the main words articulated in patch and the third pard (mp/mezzo-piano) refers to the dynamic level of the phrase.
The majority of phrases were sung multiple times, which allows the composer to stack for more phatness/fullness, but also allows tiny variations making the score alive. In addition Terrie also made 10-30 variations of many of the phrases, so any composer can truly combine the phrases to create original songs.
As part of the Forgotten Voices Series, Terrie 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.
