East West Voices of the Empire Mac PC Instrument eLicense

A cinematic and ethnic vocal tour-de-force.

EastWest/Quantum Leap present VOICES OF THE EMPIRE, a brand-new vocal product that is perfect for epic film/TV/game soundtracks, EDM, or any music requiring solo vocals or vocal harmonies using chords. Featuring the raw, primal vocals of Uyanga Bold, VOICES OF THE EMPIRE will make the perfect companion product to the newly-released blockbuster HOLLYWOOD CHOIRS.

Uyanga Bold is a unique talent, melding the ethnic musical traditions of Bulgaria, Serbia, Mongolia, and beyond. She is a trained opera singer with perfect pitch, fluent in Russian, Mongolian, French, English, and German. It’s East meets West like you’ve never heard before. Her voice is beautiful, pure, otherworldly, haunting, unsettling, powerful, genuine in its ethnic flair and world class in its precision.

VOICES OF THE EMPIRE requires PLAY 6 (including a new instrument search database and other new features), which is compatible with all PLAY products, and is included free with your purchase or subscription.

VOICES OF THE EMPIRE is a must-have vocal collection for composers and musicians looking for the best vocal sounds for their next project.

Voices of the Empire's library comprises approximately 14GB of 24-bit / 44.1 kHz samples, captured with three microphone mixes. The 84 instruments are offered across a variety of categories, including Sustain, Legato, Combo, Words, Phrases, and Keyswitch. The software utilizes a dedicated playback engine, the PLAY 6 System, which provides a searchable browser and the ability for users to customize their sounds.
