About Aliye

This unique library spans the vocal performance of renowned traditional Eurasian vocal artist Aliye Mutlu. This colourful mix of styles from Bulgarian, Rumanian and Turkish music culture captured in a stellar recording session created a powerful instrument. It is a versatile tool and absolute beautiful in its sound and looks, as is Aliye’s amazing appearance. We were honoured to be working with her, her being such a professional and talented singer it has been a dreamlike experience realizing this project into our latest release “Aliye”.

Without a doubt we are positive this is one of the best vocal performance sample libraries we’ve produced to date. It perfectly fills the gap between the unique traditional series we’ve done and the more universal cinematic vocal performances we keep craving for. You can be sure to find a lot more long chants and mesmerizing melodic material in here to fulfill your everlasting need for theatrical vocal dressing.

The proven concept of vocal performances based on copyright free songs, improvisations, in all keys and multiple speeds combined with cinematic vocal fx like poems, shouts, whispers and much more, is now crammed into just one instrument patch.

Over the last few years we found that having multiple performances and fx available in one comprehensive instrument makes work as a composer much easier and more structured.

This is the third and final volume we release in the “Vocal Signature Sampling Line” and with that we feel we set the mark to beat. Sonokinetic specializes in cinematic soundscapes filled with rich cultural diversity and with much respect for historic musical heritage. Yemenite, Rojin and Aliye are a trinity to recon with and we hope to inspire composers and producers to colour their musical creations with this highly exclusive sound material.

The Sample library “Aliye” has mainly been built around a mix of Eurasian music traditions that span musical historical styles from Bulgaria, Rumania and Turkey.

This collection consists of hundreds of unique and authentic melodic phrases, improvisations and spoken words. As far as tradition goes, Sonokinetic keeps its tradition alive by providing you with word-by-word translations to English.

So again we feel we prove the significance of a well-performed musical idiom, high-end technical recording, craftsmanship of user interface and a stellar sample library with an all-new shiny product like “Aliye”

Technical Overview

The Interface

The main Aliye GUI consists of an instrument group selector on the left, a sample behavior control in the middle, and a performance control unit at the right.

Vocal performance Selector

Vocal performance Selector is a section in which you select a specific voice performance by clicking the button. By default we saved the instrument to load the “Songs” patch. It purges only the samples that are needed for the part of the instrument you choose to use. Songs are based on traditional songs, selected for their text content and complementary character for cinematic use. Improvisations are delved from hours of creative inspired chanting and filled with decennia of musical cultural heritage of the singer. Poems and fx fill this collection with creative vocal sounds and fx of spoken words and typical very usable voice performances like whispering, hissing, shouting, calling and praying.

For the songs we designed a Song Selector (picture below) option. When a harmonic key is chosen by pressing the corresponding keyswitch (Red: see keyboard explanation) the box displays the available songs for that particular key by displaying a group of switches in the main instrument panel. The amount of songs available in each key differs, due to the limitation of the Cantors vocal range and the setting of the songs. The amount will vary between 2 to 5 available songs in any key.

When you select one of these switches a message will appear in the activity monitor on the leftmost bottom corner of Kontakt, displaying the name of the song linked to that switch in that key, allowing you to look up the translations for the song.

Keyboard Mapping

  • Red keys are key switches to select a harmonic key (for Songs and Improvisations). They range from A to G#. The yellow key displays the currently active key switch.
    For Poems the red keys let you select a different poem. And in FX it toggles between different types of vocal sound effects.
  • Blue keys mark the available amount of phrases per song, per harmonic key.
  • These blue will trigger phrase endings. (There are actually 6 different endings for each song and 12 for improvisations, which are mapped chromatically to the keyboard. From these, the first 2/3 are also used by the autoending function, the last 2 endings in Songs and the last 4 in improvisations are longer endings, they can only be triggered manually by pressing the assigned key)
  • These blue keys will trigger different breath noises, for humanizing your vocal parts…singers need to breathe too, right?
