Available for download, Vocal Beatbox THePETEBOX from Spitfire Audio is a virtual musical instrument based on 5919 samples of beatbox artist and live-looper THePETEBOX performing an extensive variety of sounds with his voice and mouth. The virtual instrument draws on the samples as you play on your keyboard, recreating your playing in the beatbox sound of your choice. The sampled sounds cover beatbox renditions of percussion instruments such as drums, cymbals, hi-hats, and snares, as well as an arsenal of effects including barbershop sounds, inhalations, dolphin squeaks, vinyl scratches, snarls, and wobbles, and a variety of lip, rasp, throat, and wham throat-bass sounds. In addition to the organic sounds there is a section of synth-processed sounds including guitar stabs, lasers, drones, radio flutes, and synth floyds. A patch of tempo-syncable loops brings to life Pete's art of layering loop upon loop with his pedal to create multi-phonic voice tracks.
Each sound is available in a choice of four mic perspectives and one mic mix which can be combined and blended for effectful shifts in focus and depth. For further sound customization there is a dynamics slider which allows for volume modulation within your score, an expression slider which controls the overall volume, and a vibrato slider which modulates the vibrato naturally present in the raw sounds. Recorded dry, the samples allow for easy manipulation and in-depth control of ambient effects.
