Vir2 Instruments is proud to introduce Aeris: Hybrid Choir Designer!
Aeris combines the usefulness and practicality of beautifully recorded male & female choirs and solo singers with the powerful sound design capabilities of the Kontakt engine. Vir2 multi-sampled all singers performing vowels Ah's, Oh's, Oo's, and Hums. Composers will easily be able to create lush vocal performances for their projects with different articulations including non-vibrato, vibrato, and true legato.
In order to give users a fresh take on vocal performances, Vir2 collaborated with industry-leading professional sound designers to create a diverse collection of vocal pads using Aeris' choir and solo singer sample content.
Aside from playable vocal patches, Aeris also provides the user with a vast amount of sound design tools for endless customization. With up to four LFO's, users can modulate their choice of volume, pan, low pass, high pass, bandpass, and pitch. Additionally, Aeris includes dual sequencers for complex pattern creation, as well as eight powerful effects to make sound design truly limitless.
80 NEW INSPIRING PAD PRESETS
The pads of Aeris are beautifully crafted and a central feature to what Aeris is all about. We wanted to provide an even deeper level of sonic depth and character utilizing the dual engines of Aeris, custom LFO’s, step sequencers, envelopes, and FX. We’ve created 80 brand new pad presets that feature the level of depth and creativity possible with the Aeris pads. Pad preset categories include: Calm, Shorts, Distorted, Tension, Motion, and Effects. These presets are included with all new purchases of Aeris and are also available as a free download to existing owners from the Vir2 Instruments' Support page.
