Variphrase Logo

This brandnew Volume 5 contains mainly sounds that were produced with the VariPhrase Processor VP 9000.  Through the use of this new "VariPhrase"-Technology    by the house of ROLAND, this library stands out especially because of the completely new sounds & loops that simply were not possible before.

The first main area are the 265 special drum loops that go beyond the customary limits.  Imagine drum loops where a addionally produced Overtone Spectrum pushes the Groove or patterns that were stamped with an additional rythmic pitch change or beats with timed and dynamic formant changes. - You must hear this - for the first time drum loops sound "hi-ended" and "dirty" at the same time.

red_pin.gif (1014 Byte)"The editing with the VP 9000 is most apparent because of the artifacts that rough up the loops and make them sound "dirtier".  It is also worth mentioning tthat the pitch within the samples change continiously and smoothlyh, even down to the single beat which makes many interesting  pitch effects possible. The loops themselves are programmed rather groovy."- Keyboards - 05/02

An additional highlight of this library are the processed vocals. These about 400 vocal hooklines & effects contain besides the announced harmonizer, vocoder and auto tune effects a bunch of completely new voice fxs, like i.e. vocal lines with "arpeggiated" second voice or the spectral poly voices.

This CD containing 779 samples is rounded off with a selection of "VP-edited" synthesizer & pad sounds, some guitar licks and unusual RSS Special Sound Effects.

Finally some fresh sounds!

Relax and feel your creative juices flow in the Miditation Zone.

Spirtual chants and Asian atmospheres will give your music that ethnic touch that is so popular in today's music. Carefully crafted pads and lead sounds incorporating everything from vintage analogue synths to the latest physical modelling technique, will help you to create mystic moods and amazing ambiences that captivate the subconsious of your listeners.

Earthshaking basses will set up the subliminal basis for your compositions and special treatments from the Roland RSS Sytem will push your music out of the speakers' normal spatial field.

"The recording quality is great, no intrusive effect procesornoise is apparent, and although there is a tendency for pads and ambient textures to have similar tonal characteristics, there is enough variety to keep even the most enthusiastic Ken Davis or Pete Namlock fans happy. Check this one out !" DIGITAL (Australien)

"a great sounding treasure chest for friends of meditative, spacial and ethnic (forgot something?!) music. In light of the inexpensiveness is the purchase indeed without risk - and also recommendable." -    "SOLO" determines 

"The recording quality is above and beyond any doubt ... for meditative fans (and of course those who want to enhance their production with some sugar from the Ambient-Drawer) the overall verdict is: "Go and BUY!" - AME-Journal

The sounds on this disc have been created by some of the leading artist in new age and electronic music in Europe especially for this collection. Benefit from their experiences in the field of meditative music and get lost in their universe of sounds,where maybe you will find......who knows what!
