The electronic download of the Ethno World 5 Professional and Voices from Big Fish Audio ships with the Native Instruments Kontakt 5 sample player containing 20 GB of content including over 800 patches with over 18,000 high quality samples.
The EW5 Pro and Voices includes the entire library of the Ethno World 4 Professional plus an additional 10 GB with over 5,500 new samples. The updated library features 25 professionally recorded solo-voices from all over the world and an Ethnic Chamber choir with over 3,800 new samples and phrases. You will find voices from North America, Cameroon, Guinea, China, Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria, Ukraine, North Africa, and Peru. An improved Legato-Mode in combination with voice-articulations allows for the recording of highly realistic vocal lines.
Other highlights include the new Taiko Drums and Big Ethnic Tom Drums, consisting of individual samples (left and right hand) and hundreds of inspiring loops. Woodwinds now feature the Ney flute (Iran), the Pivana and Tenor Pivana flute (Corsica), and a meticulously recorded pan flute and human whistling. Metal type instruments include Hi-End crash, Splash, Ride, and China cymbals with hits, swells, loops, the Big Feng gong, and glistening wind chimes.
Kontakt 5 player allows access to the new quick edit page to directly access all the essential parameters, offering a more intuitive handling of ethno world instruments. The elastic audio Time Machine II lets you transpose any instrument phrase and playing style, while synchronizing any tempos of individual loops or to a host sequencer. A humanized mode slightly alters the tone of each note, while the micro-tuning allows for any type of tuning and ethnic scales. Real-time automation has been greatly simplified allowing for quick recording and editing of parameters, while the integrated convolution reverb creates a more natural sound.
All EW5 Pro & Voices instruments and voices are played by renowned musicians & singers under the direction of Andreas Hofner and Marcel Barsotti.
