Men of the North is a low-voiced male choir that covers all things “Vikings.” It features a wide collection of ambience, atmosphere, drone, pad, legato, word-building and texture patches recorded at the legendary MGM Scoring Stage in Los Angeles. As the “swords and sandals / dragon” genre continues to dominate globally in television, video games, and film, composers must be continually armed with the appropriate colored samples to score these scenes.
Select from the menu of patches on the PRESETS page to change all parameters. You may scroll through the various articulations in the center of the shield from a master patch, or use the keyswitches to change the basic articulations.
Voices of War – Men of the North has 4 essential mixes: – Tight – a standard, straightforward, shapeable mix that allows the user to place the choir into any mix setting with simple modification.
– Dragonborne – a “finished,” dark, distant mix that lends itself to cinematic settings.
– Head – Neumann’s binaural KU100 microphone without any processing. Perfect for video game composers, this mix is especially tasty with headphones.
– Full Spectrum – a “finished,” panoramically wide mix that richly fills the stereo spectrum.
