Atelier Series Fauxgorian

Musical Sampling finally releases Atelier Series Fauxgorian – a lush legato male vocal library intended for cinematic and electronic contexts.

Atelier Series Fauxgorian Patches

  • Fauxgorian Legato – Ooo
  • Fauxgorian Legato – Ahh
  • Fauxgorian Legato – Mmm
  • Fauxgorian Solo Legato – Ooo
  • Fauxgorian Solo Legato – Mmm
  • Perpetuum – Keyswitch
  • Pagan Ritual
  • The Black Speech

Atelier Series Fauxgorian is a delicious legato male vocal release designed for cinematic and electronic contexts. Produced by producer/composer Brad Jerkins, Fauxgorian’s initial aim was to produce a vocal legato library that was a bit more unconventional. We recorded three different vowels (ahh, mmm, ooo) and processed the recordings to achieve a unique, wide, quasi-Gregorian flavor that can suit a variety of modern settings. We also provided two natural solo legato patches (ooo, mmm).

Also included is Pagan Ritual – a brooding, deep, organic instrument that works great for heavy, amoebic basslines. Perpetuum – key-switch patch housing five presets of evolving vowel sustains processed with a bespoke array of hardware pedals. The Black Speech – a collection of processed whisper chants both solo and faux ensemble (try not to use these in a track at 3 AM).

Requires full retail version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher, the Free Kontakt Player is NOT supported.

What Is The Atelier Series?

Oftentimes during the research and experimental phase of development, Musical Sampling creates instruments that don’t necessarily belong to a bigger, themed release. Instead of attempting to shoehorn them into a future release or trying to construct a comprehensive product around it, Musical Sampling decided to create the Atelier Series so that other composers can enjoy their explorations in sample development as well. 

Pricing and Availability

Atelier Series Fauxgorian is available now for a standard introductory price: $39 (reg. $69) or for Maggie/Amy Owners: $29 (reg. $69)

Renegade Cover Resized

Codename: Renegade

Codename: Renegade contains all the tonal sound design and guitar material found in Boutique Drums Renegade. After the latter was released, we received emails and messages requesting that the non-percussive material be made available as a standalone library. We answered!

Designed for cinematic contexts, nu-metal, pop, rock and synthwave, this collection includes 20 thoughtfully-crafted patches built from a variety of sources, including: fat analog synths, electric pianos, orchestral recordings, eight-string electric guitar, bass guitar and nylon guitars.  

So if you were eyeballing Boutique Drums Renegade but would rather just grab the tonal sound design content and guitars, this is the one to get!

Atelier Series Daydream 1

Musical Sampling’s Daydream

Musical Sampling launched the first of their new Atelier Series line, Daydream; an intimate release that includes four instruments geared towards emotional, ethereal contexts. 

Daydream is an intimate release that includes four instruments geared towards emotional, ethereal contexts. 

For the Cozy Piano patch, we recorded an upright piano at the pianissimo range with a stereo pair of Neumann KM 184’s placed behind the piano. Great patch if you’re looking for a soft, intimate piano with just enough character.

We also recorded a crossfade-able, arrhythmic soft sustains performance patch. With the modwheel down, the ebbing of notes is spacious and subtle. As you crossfade up, the ebbing grows with a touch more urgency and dynamics. 

Also included is Recollections; a designed, organic, quietly percolating instrument using arrhythmic piano recordings as source material. 

Finally the Ether Violin, which utilizes recordings of real auto-panned soft tremolo performances captured “in-camera”. This involved using a pair of stereo mics while the player physically leaned left/right at various speeds while performing the tremolo. 

  • All sustains recorded pedal down with release triggers
  • Performed very soft (pianissimo range)
  • Subtle pedal up samples
  • True physical autopanning solo violin soft tremolos
  • Includes soft, arrhythmic successive sustains piano patch
  • Designed arhythmic, organic texture patch
  • Adjustable reverb of custom hall impulse

Requires full retail version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher

About Atelier Series

Oftentimes during the research and experimental phase of development, Musical Sampling creates instruments that don’t necessarily belong to a bigger, themed release. Instead of attempting to shoehorn them into a future release or trying to construct a comprehensive product around it, Musical Sampling decided to create the Atelier Series so that other composers can enjoy our explorations in sample development as well. 

Musical Sampling didn’t create this line to simply offload unused patches. Like with any of our products, Musical Sampling will only include instruments that they find compelling, useful, and treated with the same level of care and attention to detail. The only difference is that they are provided in more affordable, bite-sized packages. 

Pricing and Availability

Daydream is available now.
