The NEW version of ETHERA Cinematic Vocal Instrument, includes a GIGABYTE of entirely new vocal samples performed by Clara Sorace, and numerous new features and improvements! Scroll down for a list of all the new features.
ETHERA is a stunning cinematic vocal instrument that combines amazing vocal samples, incredible simplicity and a high degree of playability all packed into a beautiful Kontakt interface for total ease of use and ultimate sound manipulation.
Ethera 2.0 now features FOUR main instruments: Phrases, Pads, Legato and Phrase Builder.
The Phrases section now includes 58 patches ranging in styles from Epic, Fantasy, Celtic, Operatic, Tribal and World and even EDM and soul. These can be mixed and combined and using the two Off-Set controls you can change the starting points of the samples using the waveform display. This allows you to create new phrases and to personalise the existing phrases. These phrases can be manipulated in many ways by the GUI controls including time-stretching or syncing to your host application.
The Pads section contains several beautiful vocal pads that immediately add emotion or grandeur to your compositions.
The Legato section offers the ability to ‘play’ the voice of Ethera using ‘ohs’ and ‘ahs’ in sustained or staccato modes and features Attack, Legato Speed, Release, Vibrato, Pan and Volume controls.
The Phrase Builder is a set of samples and phrases programmed to act as an intelligent entity allowing the composer to live-play any articulation, on any pitch or chord. The Phrase Builder is available in Solo Legato & Poly! There are 20 individual steps (similar to a step sequencer) with which to program your unique phrase. The Phrase Builder also includes a new Legato Expert interface that uses the powerful SIPS engine and is the main control for the Legato Phrases Builder. With this Tab you can change and control the crossfade, blending and legato modulation. It will enable you to minutely adjust the legato to suit your playing style.
Furthermore there is an additional folder called ETHERA EXTRA with awesome extra sounds such as virtual legato patches, sustains & pads.
ETHERA 2.0 also comes fully equipped with a complete FX section that includes chorus, flanger and phaser, compressor, EQ, filter, convolution reverb, overdrive, delay, amp simulator and cabinet simulator.

"It sounds absolutely amazing and the range and variety of vocal noises that can be coaxed from it is endless." - 9/10 Computer Music
"Us humans are very attuned to the subtle nuances of the voice, so whenever there is editing, looping, stretching or tuning, we are likely to notice it, unless it is done very carefully. Ethera can sound very artificial, which is great for highly processed dance music, pop and hip-hop styles, but it can also be made to sound like a bespoke studio recording when played with care and consideration. I can see myself using it in both ways." - Sound on Sound Click here to read the review in full
"My favorite part, out of everything, is the legato instrument in Ethera 2.0. This is just two vowels (“oh” and “ah”) in staccato and legato versions. There’s only one dynamic layer, but the best part is that the long notes feature true legato sampling at all intervals up to an octave – that means if you play an A and then a C a minor third higher, a sample of a real transition from that A to that C is used. That means a whole lot of samples, but the result is definitely worth it – the sound is very natural, and with the big default reverb makes me think of the sort of wordless vocals in lush green forest scenes in movies or games." - Bedroom Producers Blog
