Silence+Other Sounds release Hellen for Kontakt


Silence+Other Sounds announced their latest release, Hellen.  This ghostly voices and creatures Kontakt library is available at the introductory price of $49 (regular price $79) until August 4th, 2023.  The full version of Kontakt 6.6.1 or higher is available. More details from Silence+Other Sounds below.

Hellen is a Kontakt library based on ghostly voices and creatures sounds. We have teamed up with vocalist Alessandra Cognetta a.k.a. Psamathes to record a variety of vocal styles: operatic/soprano (multisampled), screams, whispers, growls, gasps, yells plus several tonal and atonal vocal layers and a variety of found sounds ranging from animal recordings to metallic friction and bowed effects.

Most of them have been processed with advanced sound design techniques (spectral morph in Kyma, formant and vowel processing etc.) to create a huge variety of sounds: soprano textures and layers, demoniac screams, evocative laments and howling sounds, unsettling laughs, designed creatures effects, ethereal whisperings , elusive broken sentences, monster growls and vocalizations, hair-raising screeches and shrieks, breathing loops (tempo synched) and even syllables and phrases in a fictional language inspired to ancient Latin.


All the 12 instruments in Hellen (playable and sound design) fit particularly well the horror and thriller realm; they have been conceived and developed to cover the needs of the modern composer and ambient producer, from the vocal textures evoking scenes of haunted settings, to terrifying vocal stabs to create effective jump scares and impactful vocal effects.
