Zero G Vocal Foundry
Vocal Foundry is a brand new multi-format vocal library featuring 700 patches and over 850 samples in over 2.5Gb of original vocal material sourced entirely from specially recorded pro vocal performances in pristine 24bit audio.
From the producers of the best-selling sample library Vocal Forge, this sublime follow-up surpasses the original in both its quality and diversity.
As well as the usual array of pop, dance and urban singers the producers have enlisted some very talented folk and downtempo vocalists to produce a more left-field approach giving this library more scope and usability as well as making it a more diverse product. The straight-up dance anthems haven't been neglected however and there are also pop, folk, downtempo, RnB, hiphop and grime vocals.
As well as the above there is also a Vocal Toolbox loaded with helpful vocal tools such as gothic stacks, mashed vocals, retro human beatbox loops, vintage scratches, opera, Spanish quartets, simulated radio samples and much, much more.
There is something in this library for everyone while the craftsmanship and quality of the material presented is truly exceptional.
Best of all, the samples have all been pre-cleared and are 100% original and royalty-free for your musical use without any additional licensing fees!
This fantastic library comes in multiple formats that should suit every music producer. Formats supported include:
850 Acidized WAV files
633 Kontakt Instruments with Custom Interface
700 EXS24, HALion and NN-XT Instruments

About the VOCAL FOUNDRY sample library - an introduction by the creators, Mike Wilkie and Matthew Corbett:
With the second Vocal Foundry project we decided to focus on material reminiscent of some of the tracks that started the whole sampling and mash-up culture. Tracks like 'Toms Diner' and 'It's A Fine Day' (originally released on vinyl as an accapella). These vocals weren't produced with dance music in mind and stand apart because of a contrast that still sounds fresh thinking.
Rather than gear the whole production towards mainstream dance we worked with more diverse vocalists. We enlisted some very talented Folk and downtempo vocalists from as far afield as Boston in the States to homegrown talent like iTunes best seller and Radio 2 favourite Kate Walsh to produce a more leftfield approach. We haven't neglected the straight up anthems either as we know from the usage of the first vocal forge that people do still like a straight up dance vocal, we just wanted to challenge people this time round and provoke some fresh thinking.
We once again added in some Grime MC's to represent that side of dance culture which is becoming ever more popular with the emergence of Bassline. This aspect is a UK based tangent but as always we wanted to produce a product with distinct flavour rather than a generic item that could have come from anywhere.
With the toolkit we have once again aimed for more offbeat content - live Spanish quartets, Gothic stacks, mashed vocals and retro loops make up a few of the entries this time around. We've recorded scratching with old decks, scratching with an internationally renowned opera singer and simulated radio samples.
We hope the content on Vocal Foundry will inspire the next wave of producers in bedrooms and studios the world over and we look forward to hearing our team of vocalists being woven into countless future productions.
