Many Genres

The voice behind the library, C.C. White, has sung with many of the greatest names in the music industry. Her voice is a unique blend of funk, soul, reggae and a plethora of other inter-genre influences. Voices of Soul captures the full essence of her voice, from subtle breathiness to raw power. You also get to take advantage of tons of ad lib phrases in which C.C. completely lets loose, and the serendipity of her unscripted solos becomes an incredible arsenal of soul-drenched phrases for use in any context you can possibly imagine. The greatest advantage of having these pre-recorded vocal lines is that they’re completely authentic without the need for any MIDI past a single note--giving you all the energy of C.C.’s live performance without compromising on MIDI playback.
