Details

Opera singer and vocal coach Elizabeth Zharoff approaches every genre and style of singing with enthusiasm and an infectious joie de vivre. We were immediately drawn to her pursuit of science-backed emotional impact through singing: getting deep into the connections between the body, brain, and voice. To that effect, we collaborated to create a library of vocal phrases across a variety of themes to bring that mood-lifting energy to projects of many different natures.

With a focus on evocative sound and ease of use, Charisma Volume 1 includes 111 wordless phrases in the following categories:

  • Arabian Nights
  • Classical Elegance
  • Climactic Drama
  • Epic Trailer
  • Horror
  • In Awe
  • Lulls
  • Mournful
  • Open Seas
  • Verismo

Each phrase was recorded in four keys for maximum versatility, and can be searched via functional parameters (such as tempo, vowel, and mode) to give you the easiest access to the sound you seek: pick your mood, key, and meter, and you’ll have the perfect line in seconds. In addition to the phrases, the library features single note samples to flesh out melodic lines with extra flexibility, including “Ah” and “Oo” vowels, with light and strong vibrato, at two dynamics. Also included are 15 playable atmosphere sounds, which morph and transform Elizabeth’s voice into hybrid sound design elements.


About Elizabeth Zharoff and The Charismatic Voice


Elizabeth Zharoff has performed opera internationally for over ten years, sung in 18 languages, recorded for over 20 video games, and once provided the voice for an AI assistant. As an acclaimed vocal coach, she founded The Charismatic Voice to bring her love of singing and voice education to a wider audience. We’re thrilled to expand that audience further to include working composers and music makers worldwide.


Console: Modular FX Rack and Mixer


Console is a fully-featured mixer, modular effects rack, and pedal board, designed to give you full control over your mix. Effects include multiple EQs (digital and analog-style), compressors, spatial FX, modulation FX, amps, distortion pedals, reverbs, and more.

Each mic channel can be loaded with up to 8 FX in any order, plus another 8 slots on the master channel, with support for send routing as well. The new “Galois Reverb” added in Kontakt 6 Player sounds fantastic as an alternative to our included custom IRs.

Testimonial – Jimmy ‘Big Giant Circles’ Hinson (Black Ops 4, Borderlands 2, Threes)

“Between Shreddage, Super Audio Cart, Juggernaut, and Mega Brass I don’t remember the last time I haven’t used an Impact Soundworks instrument in a track. The attention to detail is astonishing and it’s all so easy to use out of the box, which is a big deal.”
