LABS: Gaelic Voices

A free virtual instrument featuring recordings of tradition Gaelic singers from Spitfire Audio.

By

6 December 2023

Producing inspiring sounds for composers, LABS plugins are created with sonic pioneers such as Hans Zimmer, and the world’s finest musicians and studios. LABS is a series of free software instruments that are presented by Spitfire Audio, and available in an easy-to-use, dedicated plug-in. The user interface is clutter-free and focused, and features simplified controls, sliders for expression and dynamics, and a knob that can be easily customised to the user’s personal workflow.

Six traditional Gaelic singers recorded inside the ruins of a 1960s seminary. Originally a training campus for catholic priests, St Peter’s Seminary shut down in 1980 and fell into disrepair. In the concrete skeleton of the former chapel, the LABS team captured a small group of singers performing a captivating range of aleatoric techniques, inspired by Celtic vocal traditions.
