Riot Audio Release PHONETIC

Riot Audio have released PHONETIC, a vocal instrument that bridges the organic and digital worlds. It’s available at the intro price of £49.00, increasing to £69.00.

PHONETIC is an innovative vocal morphing engine for Native Instrument’s Kontakt 6. It draws on a wide selection of single and dual phonemes (ah, eh, ba, la, vv etc) as a basis for musical sound design. Although technically a sample library, the architecture and resulting sounds are more reminiscent of a synth.

PHONETIC’s pulses, pads, keys and other sounds are not limited to the original performers’ ranges and are therefore playable across the entire keyboard range. Be prepared to be mesmerised by a smorgasbord of looping, whirling and gradually unfolding velvety soundscapes.

PHONETIC is a syllable-based vocal morphing engine for Native Instrument’s Kontakt 6. It is loaded with 44 female and male vowel/consonant performances recorded across a broad range of pitches, arranged in three layers: Body, Loops and Air.

The over 3000 total possible sound combinations can be sculpted into evolving pads, pulses, pad/pulse combinations, and also keys and riser sounds with the Shape, Morphing and Movement controls in the user interface.

PHONETIC contains 125 presets, ranging from minimalism-inspired looping female single syllables, via gently evolving formant-filtered pad sounds, to gritty distorted riser sounds.

Features include:

  • Custom sound design engine using state of the art Kontakt 6 capabilities
  • Three layers of sound: Body (vowels), Loops (consonants+vowel sounds), Air (sibilants/friction sounds)
  • Source sounds: 14 open vowel sounds (ah, eh, oh, eeh, ooh, a-e-i-o-u, hum), 16 consonant/vowel combinations (e.g. na, no, lu, ba, mi) and 14 fricative sounds (e.g. vv, zz, sh), all in male and female versions.
  • 3000 possible sonic combinations
  • 125 presets (snapshots) in total – 20 pads, 20 pulses, 20 pad/pulse combinations, 20 keys, 20 organs, 10 natural voices, 20 risers, 5 templates
