NKS KOMPLETE KONTROL & MASCHINE Compatible

Vintage Vocals is a virtual instrument designed to emulate the sound of the great female background singers who performed on so many classic vintage Funk, Soul, R&B, and Rock 'n' Roll records from the 1960s and 1970s. These talented women sang background for such artists like Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Martha and the Vandellas, Patty LaBelle, Donna Summers, Ike & Tina Turner, the Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, David Bowie, and many more.

Vintage Vocals is an affordable, easy-to-use VI designed with a singular focus: to provide composers and producers with a set of the most commonly-used R&B background vocal-sounds and articulations - sung with a “live” feel and a whole lot of authentic vintage Soul.

Vintage Vocals GUI

Sounds and articulations include:
- Oohs, Ahs, and Ohs
- Sustains (long notes)
- Staccatos (short notes)
- Swells (crescendos, increasing in volume from soft to loud)

While there's no replacement for live singers, Vintage Vocals does its best to close the gap and works well when used to create harmonized background pads, unison lines, and accents. Also included are several pre-programmed chord patches that can be used to create three-part harmonized backgrounds by playing with just one finger.

Like the other products in the Vintage series, Vintage Vocals was not designed to be a perfect, pristine-sounding virtual instrument. Instead, our goal was to try to create a product that captured the character of those classic R&B
female background singers, including the stylistic quirks and minor imperfections that made them sound so good.

The three singers we recorded for this product - Angela Clemmons, Janice Dempsey, and Tiffany T'Zelle Wilson - have decades of experience recording and performing on countless R&B, Funk, Soul, and Gospel projects. They sing with the same kind of heart and Soul as the great background singers who provided the inspiration for this product. We thank them for the energy and talent that they brought to this project.
Formatted for Kontakt 5.7.1 and above. Works with the free Kontakt Player.

KEYSWITCHES

The keys marked in red on Kontakt's virtual keyboard are known as key-switches. By pressing a key-switch, you can change from one vocal sound and articulation, to another - for example, from Oohs Sustains to Oohs Staccatos, Ahs Swells, or Ohs Sustain (the default for all vocal patches).

The patches designated as “All Articulations” contain all three vowel sounds and all three articulations, as follows:

- B1 = Ah Sustain (the default setting for all patches)
- A#1 = Ah Staccato
- A1 = Ah Swell
- G#1 = Oh Sustain
- G1 = Oh Staccato
- F#1 = Oh Swell
- F1 = .Ooh Sustain E1 = Ooh Staccato
- D#1 = Ooh Swell

Note that the Sustains patches in Vintage Vocals use just a single articulation (Sustains), with all three three vowel-sounds. Key-switches for these patches are as follows:

- B1 - Ah Sustain
- Bb1 - Oh Sustain
- A1 - Ooh Sustain

For single-patches and Multis, the active key-switch will be yellow in color.
