Ethera Soul Edition features 4 main instruments: Phrases, Phrase Builder, Sustains and Choir Legato.
The Phrases section includes 12 patches full of soul and gospel vocal phrases. 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 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 & Polyphonic modes. You can use up to 20 individual steps (similar to a step sequencer) to program your phrase as you wish.
The Sustain section offers the ability to ‘play’ the voice of Ethera Soul using ‘ohs’ and ‘ahs’ and choirs in sustained modes.
The Choir Legato instrument features a choir and a Legato Expert interface which uses the powerful SIPS engine and is the main control for the Legato Phrases Builder. With this Tab you can change and control the cross-fade, blend and modulation offset amongst other controls. It will enable you to adjust the legato to suit your playing style. The Legato Expert interface is also available for use in the Phrase Builder Legato instrument.
ETHERA SOUL EDITION 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.
"Legato control and effects wrap things up, and it all comes together in an effective, capable package." - Computer Music - 9/10
"The Soul Edition of Ethera is more focused and specialized [than Ethera 2.0], and includes something very rare in the virtual vocalist world – non-classical choirs with a ton of character. [...] If the question is “can this virtual singer compete with real human singers”, then the developers and vocalist have done a great job of picking their spots and focusing on sounds for areas where a virtual singer can often win the battle because of simple logistics." - Bedroom Producers Blog
