Isolation Choir Library for M-Tron Pro

Published on Apr 28, 2020 GForce Software

"On April 1st 2020 we reached our 20th Birthday. But, given what's going on in the world, it seemed disingenuous to celebrate, so instead, we looked at how we could give something back to those who've supported us over the last 20 years.

During Sonic Talk 613, ace singer/songwriter Jamie Lidell made mention of his 'Isolation Loops' pack, as a way of 'giving something back' and this sparked an idea to do something similar. So we contacted Jamie, plus various other friends and M-Tron Pro users, asking them to provide 35 notes (the Tron key range) with each note lasting up to 8 seconds (the Tron tape length). Those who could, very kindly obliged, utilising everything from an empty sound stage, to a smart phone. Recordings were then chopped, edited and, in few cases, pitch shifted to meet the 35 note criteria.

At the time of recording, like most others, the contributors are self-isolating and we think their individual circumstances have translated into performances both wonderful and poignant. Also, because Covid-19 affects the lungs, this project felt like an act of defiance and unity in the face of something dark and ugly.

These contributors include: Alex Ball, Angie Pollock, Anna Kumble, Duncan Parsons, Jamie Lidell, Les Pressure, Maddie Jones, Matt Berry, Mike Rose, Nate Williams, Neil Rough, Putte, Dave Spiers and others. It also includes a modicum of remastered M-Tron Pro and ChamberTron choral tape banks, plus a few previously unreleased gems.

Bringing it to fruition has been an incredibly moving experience. But we're happy to make the Isolation Choir available FREE to registered users of M-Tron Pro.

Stay Safe - Stay Creative - and THANK YOU for your support."
