Vocal/choir patch

Post by gstoelen » Sun Mar 03, 2019 3:39 pm

Hey guys,

Looking for the machine that produced the vocal/choir type sound in this oldschool rave track (first seconds/chords of the track). Could of course be a sample-based synth..
Thanks for any feedback!

It's most likely a sampler. Probably an Akai or Roland S series (both used S in their model numbers of samplers).

There was a disk from the Roland S-50/550 sound library call Ooze and Oz with choir sounds like that and I could load it into my W-30 which reads S-50/550 sounds.

Great, thanks! :)

Then I'm sure the choir sound in the beginning of this track can be found in pretty much the same library - it's from the same label anyway:



I'll be looking for an S-550 ;)

An S-330 will work for you as well.

I'm not certain but it really sounds like one of the Emulator II choirs, from the factory library.

Either the EII Pompous Choir (I think that's what it was called like) or the Emax factory choir disk.

Yes! That's it precisely. There's a little bit of fun to be had in figuring out the chord voicing. I had to use the nose on my face to play that top F# to F etc. while also doing the octaves in the bass :) I have the EII patches in Kontakt, where it's much easier than it is on a real EII to get that big bright production sound of these tracks ;) .

It's sounds like they're also using the EII Grand Piano on the first track as well, not the Korg M1 as would be the assumption.

What is the chord voicing, perchance? Thanks!
