Welcome to ALLURA Volume 1, our debut solo vocal library featuring the performances of award-winning soprano Jillian Aversa! This enchanting instrument offers 150 unique, ethereal vocal phrases across 4 keys, 3 tempi, multiple modes and time signatures. The phrases all have evocatively named groups and detailed tags so you can either start a composition with an inspiring performance, or easily fit one into your existing piece.
Every aspect of the library is designed to be super-friendly for composers. All phrases can be played in any key, and all performances were recorded to a set tempo as we understand ‘freeform’ phrases can be difficult to use. The phrases are wordless and performed on the vowels “oo” or “ah” so that lyrics don’t distract from your writing. If you don’t want to use our very flexible Kontakt engine for finding, editing, and playing phrases, you can simply use them directly in your DAW with clearly labeled WAV files.
All these features, combined with bonus single note “oo” and “ah” sustains, morphs, and atmospheric FX, make Allura – in our humble opinion – an essential tool for any media composer seeking an ethereal voice for their compositions.

Allura, Vol. 1 – Music Nation
“Allura is a wonderful showcase of Jillian Aversa’s sublime vocal timbre…Where Allura really shines for me is as part of a grand orchestral ensemble. With a good mix of well-chosen phrases supported by melodic singular lines, this library sounds absolutely phenomenal…Allura from Impact Soundworks is a fantastic sounding and simple instrument to use with a huge number of expertly performed and recorded samples [sic] phrases.”
Jacko Andrews (Music Nation)
Allura, Volume 1 – Sample Library Review
“Very simple, straight ahead, but I really like the sound design of all of these pads that are included. I think [the] phrases are really the king of the king for the library.”

Testimonial – Will Morton (Grand Theft Auto V, L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption)
“Allura is fantastic, it is so much more than a selection of samples. It puts me as close to being in the studio directing the vocalist as I can imagine.”
