1. Soniccouture Tape Choir

Soniccouture Tape Choir

Soniccouture Tape Choir is a free Kontakt Player instrument that offers a classic multi-layered “infinite” vocal pad sound that can add a lot of depth to your music productions. This instrument is based on the “infinite choir” recording technique of having three male vocalists singing the same note in unison and holding it as long as they are able to before combining them into a single audio file per key.

Tape Choir also comes with tape emulation, a multimode filter, an ADSR envelope, and an extensive selection of convolution reverb types enabling shaping of the ‘choir.’ With its organic sound and unique character, Soniccouture Tape Choir is a must-have for anyone looking to add a touch of nostalgia and texture to their music.
