    Coming soon on patchpool: Phonemklatura for Phonem - pre-order now and save 20+%

    i just released my first soundset for Phonem:





    Phonemklatura Phonemklatura contains 108 patches (including some variations) for the unique vocal synthesizer Phonem (PPG/Wolfgang Palm). These sounds are not aiming at any kind of vocal pseudo-realism, on the contrary, I am using the versatile and expressive vocal character of this synthesizer to create beautiful and delicate pads, ethereal overtone textures, fragile and edgy leads, haunting and alien voices, phonetic experiments, tempo-synced vocaloid mayhem, percussive mallet-like timbres, robotic voices, fantasy beings and other synthetic sounds only faintly reminding of their vocal origin.


    Often Phonem's wavetable synthesizer is used to excite the vocal resonators using wavetables extracted from acoustic instruments like brass, woodwinds, string instruments, mallets and electronic textures with PPGs Wavemapper, expanding the possible palette of sounds even more. All sounds make extensive use of Phonem's x/y-pads which can be automated in any DAW and the modulation wheel, quite a few patches also use aftertouch.


    As Phonem's onboard effects are very basic and are rarely used in any of these patches, I included some of the original LogicX demo projects containing Midi data and 3rd party effect plugins, and a Cubase 8-project with some effect chains using the native Cubase plugins, so you could use these settings as a starting point.


    You can view/download the PDF for this soundset with more details, the licence agreement, and a patchlist including descriptions and playing tips here.


    Specs:

    • *108 patches including some variations.
      *159 resource files - utterances and wavetables in the native utd/wtz-format.
      *15.9 MB installed
      *Delivery: download
      *Price: € 28 EUR



    Product page.


    Demos:
    All demos were produced entirely with Phonem using only patches from Phonemklatura, some post-processing was applied (delay/reverb/chorus), if several instances of Phonem were used in a track, some volume automation was used.


    Videos:
















    more videos and Phonem tutorials can be found in .

    Thank's for reading

    Here is a little impro with a patch that uses the track modulator to determine the pitches of the trills/tremolos, where you set a dedicated pitch for each utterance/syllable:

    Something more delicate, this patch also uses the Track-modulator to determine the pitches of each utterance/syllable and the slurs between them.

    Here is a silly jam, using 3 slightly modified copies of the same preset, making use of the Modwheel to control phonem position and velocity to modulate other things which makes for a real expressive jam instrument:

    Here ia video for the patch Agogo Vox which uses a wave-tabled agogo loop to excite the resonators, quite delicate...the wheel adds vibrato, aftertouch decreases vibrato speed, x-y pad 1 controls formant shifting, LFOs 1-3 control various things.

    Here is another impro with a patch where the modulation wheel creates all sorts of rather beautiful overtone transitions, morphing from a more conventional vocal sound to more ethereal sounds:

    Made some patches today using Shakespeare quotes, here is one of them, tweaking various parameters via modulation wheel and x/y-pad 1:

    Improvising with a monophonic vocal patch over a dark tremolo drone, B2 was used for reverberation:

    Five instances of Phonem using five fresh Phonemklatura patches, 3 of them using granulated soprano sax textures to excite the utterances, one being the solo lead vox in monophonic mode, and some laughing-monkey-voice mocking the whole thing


    I'm totally amazed about the variety of timbres Phonem can produce...

    A little morning jam with three Phonems, percussive bass sound meets vocal pad-lead meets sequencer pad:

    Two Phonems, improvised in 2 passes, both patches use an oud tremolo to excite the utterances, one wave-tabled, the other one a TCS sample/wavetable. The automated x/y-pads modify many parameters, modulation wheel adds vibrato.

    A little Sunday morning shower with two fresh Phonems:





    I am working my way through the library finalizing all patches and writing the PDF with patch descriptions. Release is planned for the end of the week, so any fence-sitters, make up your mind soon if you want to save some cash.

    A little fairy tale patch...


    Patch description (quoted from the PDF that comes with Phonemklatura):


    The beginning of a tale excited by a wavetable with a re-synthesized china cymbal (TCS sample), MW mickey-mouses the voice, X/Y1 controls mount of pan modulation/panning speed, X2 controls excitation brightness/aspiration amount, Y2 modulates formants.






    As it looks now, release will be Monday, I have a bad cold atm and can only works very slowly, which might actually be good for finalizing all these Phonem patches.

    Improvising with the patch Cello Vox Vibrato. some automation for X/Y-pad 2 was added in a 2nd pass,


    Patch description (quoted from the PDF):
    A re-synthesized/wavetabled cello portato accent exciting the utterance chai9n, wavetable position is modulated by VEL, higher velocity values create a more percussive attack. LFO modulates pan position, itís depth is controlled by Env M1, so pan modulation kicks in shortly after each attack. AT adds vibrato, Y1 decreases LP cutoff/shifts formants, X1 modulates resonator quality/excitation, MW modulates formant bending.
