Hollywood Fantasy Voices puts the power of singer Merethe Soltvedt’s majestic voice at your fingertips, along with full male and female choirs. Anytime you need ethereal, floating vocals to capture the essence of battles, lost kingdoms, or emotional trials, Merethe’s voice will sell the scene even when nothing else does the trick.
There’s a world of difference between a trained singer and a vocalist who has perfected true cinematic fantasy singing — and with Hollywood Fantasy Voices in hand, you can finally bridge that gap in your scores. EastWest have meticulously built this collection from the ground up, with multiple microphone positions, portamento control, mood (Soft, Classic, and Epic) and more so you can command the mythic fantasy vocals you need for your newest epic soundtrack. This is the authority that Hollywood Fantasy Voices puts in your hands — the ability to, with only a few words, make the audience feel on instinct: “I’m far away from home.” Merethe Soltvedt has lent this library the same power and grace she brings as the lead vocalist for Two Steps From Hell. If you enjoy fantasy movies, you’ll love this: Every word she recorded for the Hollywood Fantasy Voices library comes directly from Tolkien’s Elvish language, allowing you to make your scores as authentic as possible!
Sustains – forget complex CC automation; simply hold a single note and let Merethe’s haunting vocals do the rest! Switch between Lyrical (for dramatic, dynamic vowels) and Vibrato (for higher-energy sustained vowels) to instantly add a mysterious, regal topline to your scores (think Howard Shore’s Evenstar from The Two Towers). Every note is rich with emotion and magic, ready to add to your fantasy orchestra.
Legato – for more dramatic melodies that demand maximum realism and expression. These true legato passages are perfect for evoking images of rolling hills, distant castles, and all manner of fantasy settings — grand, expressive legato transitions were recorded both ascending and descending within an octave, allowing you to make even large intervals feel effortless with Merethe’s emotive voice.
Elvish Words – if you’ve ever wanted your own personal Elvish singer, you’re in luck — Merethe recorded 60 different words from Tolkien’s original language across a range of notes, which you can perform in isolation or chain together to create your own unique phrases and sentences. Even if this is only a subtle detail in an otherwise complex score, listeners will feel it — and this attention to detail will help set your music apart.
Phrases – instantly set the mood for brooding, somber, and ominous fantasy scores. When you need a strong vocal line but don’t know what melody to write, and you want maximum realism and emotion, these ad lib phrases let you create the perfect part by playing a single note. All are organized into patches by key, so you never have to go hunting for the perfect vocal part when you’re deep in writing mode.
Choir – Hollywood Fantasy Voices wouldn’t be complete without a full choir to back up your solo singer, so we included ethereal male and female groups with different vowels to provide a rich palette to underscore the most gallant and potent moments in any project you’re writing for. The choir’s style has heavy traditional folk inspirations, making this the perfect fit when conventional “epic” choirs simply don’t do the job.
Keyswitch – we also included a keyswitch section to bring the rest of the instrument together into several condensed patches, allowing you to include all the fantasy voices you want with less tracks and menu diving. These include a full choir, men’s / women’s choirs, and Merethe’s recordings of sustains, phrases, and Elvish words. If you need to create a fleshed-out score quickly, this will give you the fastest path to bringing your own fantasy vocals to life.
