The instruments in Omen immediately evoke a sense of solemnity and ancient rituals. They remind me of the screams of battlefields, ethereal colors from nordic landscapes with their whispering trees at night time for some unknown reason…

The whole Kontakt Library has an air about it that makes you feel like it’s supposed to belong there – as if these melodies were meant just for your next project! You can hear all different kinds which are pretty cool Ritual Voices & War Chants.

From guttural voices, ritual chants to even extreme distortion, high-pitch techniques scream and growls… Omen does it all!

Omen is a Kontakt library based on ritual voices and epic war chants. We have recorded many traditional singing styles from different cultures around the world: Tuvan throat and overtone singing (Kaargyra, Khoomei and Szygyt), Sardinian Throat singing (Bassu), Nordic Kulning (high pitch female style), Slavic Singing (white voices), Western baritone, tenor and soprano, guttural voices, ritual chants and even extreme distortion, high-pitch techniques, screams, vocal fry and growls.

The result is a set of 8 different playable Kontakt instruments that combine all these voices together to create a huge variety of sounds: from shamanic low vocal drones to mysterious rhythmic hymns, from ethereal female choirs to aggressive haka-style chants, from monk humming sounds to Viking-reminding vocal ensembles.

The instruments in Omen instantly evoke solemn rituals in a forgotten temple, the screams of the battlefield, the ethereal colors of a nordic landscape, mysterious pagan cults, sorceries and witchcrafts, the whispering of the spirits in the woods.

Omen is for TV, film , game composers and sound designers looking for a one of a kind instrument based on rare and meticulously recorded voices to immediately set a ‘dark age’ mood. It fits particularly well the epic genre, with specific regard to fantasy and dark age movies, but its versatility makes it useful also for post-horror, thriller, electronic and ambient music.

MPE COMPATIBLE
MPE is the acronym of MIDI Polyphonic Expression. It is a specific MIDI technology which enables multidimensional instruments (for example Roli Seaboard or Haken Continuum) to independently control multiple sound shaping parameter for each individual note.

Omen supports MPE: you can easily MIDI map Volume, Low Pass Filter, High Pass Filter and LFO amount for each of the 4 layers of the playable instrument by using the Mapping screen. All of these parameters can be controlled per note, allowing you to create custom patches of rich, evolving end expressive combinations from 94 selectable vocal sounds and textures, 46 MPE Multis and 70+ Snapshots. To discover more about the MPE implementation of Omen, please consult our free manual(link).

Omen is compatible with any MIDI controller, you don’t necessarily need an MPE-compatible one and you can map the aforementioned parameters to the MIDI CCs of your controller.
