ETHERA is a stunning new cinematic vocal instrument** that combines amazing vocal samples, incredible simplicity and a high degree of playability all packed into a beautiful Kontakt interface for total ease-of use and ultimate sound manipulation.
Ethera features 3 main instruments: Phrases, Pads and Legato.
The Phrases section includes 45 patches ranging in styles from Epic, Fantasy, Celtic, Operatic, Tribal and World and even EDM and soul. These can be mixed and combined and using the two Off-Set controls you can change the starting points of the samples using the waveform display. This allows you to create new phrases and to personalise the existing phrases. These phrases can be manipulated in many ways by the GUI controls including time-stretching or syncing to your host application.
The Pads section contains several beautiful vocal pads that immediately add emotion or grandeur to your compositions.
The Legato section offers the ability to ‘play' the voice of Ethera using ‘ohs' and ‘ahs' in sustained or staccato modes and features Attack, Legato Speed, Release, Vibrato, Pan and Volume controls
Furthermore there is an additional folder called ETHERA EXTRA with awesome extra sounds such as virtual legato patches, sustains & pads.
Ethera also comes fully equipped with a complete FX section that includes chorus, flanger and phaser, compressor, EQ, filter, convolution reverb, overdrive, delay, amp simulator and cabinet simulator.
User review (written by Jawad Abu-Lughod, a customer of our distribution partner Time+Space):
“Ethera delivers! Ethera has a deep soul. Clara's voice is transcendent. Since I purchased it upon its release, I have have made use of all three engines, particularly the Pads and Phrases. I highly recommend getting this.. You won't regret it. With so many other voice products on the market, I only recommend the ones that deliver the goods for under $100 and Ethera certainly delivers!”
