EASTWEST Voices Of Soul $399

In EastWest’s continued pursuit of inspiring sample libraries, the company’s latest addition to the catalogue brings us a female vocal library, straight from the heart. Will Dave Gale experience his soul awakening?

Contact EastWest Sounds |

It’s not often that you hear of a vocal library with ambitions in the direction of soul music. However, EastWest has some tricks up its sleeve to entice us into its latest palette of samples. This library is centred around female soul vocals, and the origin of the samples is vocalist C.C. White. She’s an established and respected soul vocalist and delivers a fine performance.

Loading the samples via EastWest’s own Play instrument, Voices Of Soul aims to touch a number of bases, so my first port of call was the Vocal-Phrase menu. It’s here that you begin to get a feel for the beautiful dexterity of C.C. White’s voice; her lower register delivers a lovely husky quality, especially in the lower dynamic range, but when she lets rip, you can hear just a little more ambience, as she backs off the mic a tad, and the compression kicks in.
