Spitfire Audio releases Xtended Vox by Lea Bertucci
In collaboration with Lea Bertucci, Spitfire Audio has released Xtended Vox. Explore the outer reaches of the human voice with this incredibly unique world of cutting-edge textures, rhythms and evolving drones. This distinctive vocal library is available now for $29 and requires Sptifre’s dedicated plugin player. More details from Spitfire Audio below.
Curated and produced by composer and sound artist Lea Bertucci, Xtended Vox captures the radical vocalisations of Lea and three renowned pioneers of the avant-garde — Audrey Chen, Cansu Tanrikulu & Phil Minton. From earth-shaking bass drones to window-shattering sound effects, whispers, rhythmic clicks and glissandi to haunting multiphonic choirs; these alien-like instruments will hum, hiss, heckle and haunt to create immediate tension, atmosphere, horror and beauty — a treasure trove of delights and terrors for any experimental producer, beatmaker or film composer.
The plugin’s radically transformative processed signal and in-built controls take the organic sounds to new sonic realms to create complex otherworldly synth textures, rhythms and sound effects beyond your wildest dreams — designed to inspire and breathe new life into your compositions.
Expand your sound palette with 49 original presets, bursting with invention — ideal for creating cinematic trailer music and non-diegetic sound FX, particularly for horror or sci-fi, or adding texture, atmosphere and a distinctly human element to any genre of music. Xtended Vox captures the unique voices and sonic vocabularies of Lea Bertucci and three acclaimed vocal artists, stretching across varying generations and geographies and melding free improvisation with formalised composition. The original vocal recordings have been taken to new sonic dimensions using multiple outboard and digital processing techniques, accessible via the dynamics fader — cycle through layers of varying processing, each unique to each individual preset. The library encompasses the most radical and eccentric of vocal techniques, from visceral throat singing to alien nasal sounds; from the most fragile of whispers and birdsong-like whistles to lip trills, yodels, shrieks and ululations — pushing the boundaries of what can be done with contemporary voice.
