Beatles'n'Jazz

2011-02-19 13:38:09 by sorohanro

Some weeks ago, Alexandr Belkin, a well known Lithuanian artist, called me on the phone and asked me to record some trumpets for his upcoming album. After out successful collaboration, he called me again for a concert.
No rehearsals (with me), we met on stage and played some "Beatles Jazz Tribute" concert.
Enjoy !

Eurovision song

2011-02-13 18:48:14 by sorohanro

Hi guys.
As some people from Audio Forum know already, one of my bands participated to preselection for Eurovision in Lithuania.
Some people said that our song was maybe too "rock/ metal" for this kind of contest, so I made a softer version.

New Year Concert Live on National TV

Updated

Title says pretty much all.
Last concert for 2010, first concert in 2011, live on Tele3 with the crazy guys (aka Timohi). The trumpet was a bit out of tune in the beginning because of the cold but later on was ok.

Live on TV and Christmas Video

2010-12-21 17:55:08 by sorohanro

Recently I got hired as a guitar teacher at Noriu Groti guitar school (because I finished Music Academy at trumpet and worked many years in orchestra as trumpet player... well, life...).
Anyway, made an arrangement for "Silent Night" (aka "Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht") and had some fun recording guitar teachers from Noriu Groti (me included) and made a silly little video as a Christmas gift ;)

Vowel Ensemble Choir Pack Finally Ready !

2010-11-03 08:16:25 by sorohanro
Updated

After many many months of gradual effort we're finally able to unveil the first ever free vowel ensemble choir pack!
The Vowel Ensemble Pack has the ability to morph into the ah, oh, ih, eh, ee vowels using the modwheel for Kontakt patch or separate assignable controls for Mu.Lab Mux patch.
The choir patch was developed by me (Mihai Sorohan) together with Richard Osborn for Mu.Lab Multisampla and Selcuk Bor (from Symphony of Specters) for Kontakt.

Choir:
Citrina - soprano & alto
Jelena - alto
Roman & Dimitri (Timohi) - tenor
JonnyZed - tenor
Mihai (aka sorohanro, aka me) - tenor & baritone

Gear used:
Microphone - AKG Perception 170
Preamp - Art Tube MP Project Series
Soundcard - M-Audio Audiophile 192
Samples at 32 bit float, 44.1 khz samplerate.

DOWNLOADS:
Mu.Lab Files

Download Mu.Lab Multisampla format patches separately
Download Mu.Lab Mux Patch
Download "Ave Maria Sound Alike" Mu.Lab session.
A reworked version of the pack named "Choir Vowel Ensemble Pack" is available on the official Mutools website on the "Download" section.
http://www.mutools.com/downloads.html
Jo from Mutools converted all 6 patches into a MuSynth patch and also converted all samples to Ogg files to keep filesize low (in the original is 32 bit wav).
The quality is still decent but the size is much smaller, so it's more suitable for people with a slower internet connection or with smaller HD drives.
Kontakt Files
Kontakt files and patches can be found on Symphony of Specters Facebook Page. "Llike" the page and download the awesome patch ;)
Technical details:
Kontakt

A note about Kontakt users, since we did not buy a free player license you must have the full version of Kontakt 3.5+ to use this library.
It comes in a wet and a dry monolith file. We decided to keep it monolith for now for simplicity sake.
Installation is easier, download, load in Kontakt and enjoy.
Mu.Lab
If you use the Mu.Lab version you need:
- Mu.Lab (free version would do it just fine)
- Multisampla format patches separately - unzip them and copy the " Vowel Ensemble" folder to MULAB/User/Library/MuSynth - this will make available the separate patches (A, E, I, O and U) as Multisampla patches.
- Mux Patch that you copy to MULAB/User/Library/MUX - this put all the vowel patches into one "synth" that crossfade between vowels and allow you to make speech like patterns.
To see how is that done, you can download the "Ave Maria Sound Alike" file.

Here are some demo songs using the Vowel Ensemble Choir Pack:
- Era Meets Bob Marley-Choir Demo
- Ave Maria Sound Alike
- Choir Demo A-E-I
