About Desert Voice
Sonokinetic’s unique and one-of-a-kind, richly sampled Middle Eastern male vocal library captures the mysterious beauty and the impressive magic of the Iraqi Egyptian Arabian male voice. Whether you need to create an authentic Middle Eastern composition, or just add some spice and originality to any production, Desert Voice provides the necessary elements to set your music apart. These intriguing melodies and phrase improvisations will give you a broad range of diversity in your composition.
We’ve gone all the way and recorded most of the commonly used Middle Eastern melodic styles (maqams). The samples are available in all parallel western contemporary root keys. These can easily be triggered and displayed in the Kontakt user interface. For easy and quick scoring Desert Voice provides patches with Arabian styled melodies which are harmonically mirrored to western minor scales.
Performed by Mr Hammam Al Sayid, a scholar of the classical Arabian art music. With full dedication to this project he performed the best musical takes we’ve ever experienced. From the deepest low to the highest intense emotion, Hammam took us by surprise and opened our ears and imagination to the mystic and fantastical world within Arabian music.
Sonokinetic pushes the limits to capture a soundscape with a wide selection of user-friendly, easy to use collection of Middle Eastern vocal samples.
Use the left and right arrows to select up to 30 different sets of phrases / improvisations.

*Please note for Performances we have a limited amount of keys ranged due to limitations to vocal chord performance range. Outside of this range (1-2 semitones) performance would be unrealistic so that option is not provided.
Middle Eastern music theory and character is very different from western music, due to the microtonal nature of these maqams. But as a general reference we found that a lot of our minor and major keys go well with these samples. We specifically applied western tuning while recording these samples. For instance, the root key goes well with major as the 4th and 5th go well in minor. But all these harmonic references are interchangeable and can be combined to create thousands of original combinations. The full potential of this sample library is yet to be unleashed.
