Reccomendations for vocal placeholders/vox/chorus

Post by mmaceachran »

I have a song and I will eventually lay down a vocal track, until then I want to write the music for it as a simple MIDI track. I am looking for a simple VST that does "Ahhhs" and "ohhhs"

Does someone have a recommendation for a plug-in that would help for this?

Dose someone have some techniques they might share when a singer is unavailable abut you still want to write.

An organ makes a nice placeholder for voices. I often use setBfree in a midi track when composing my backing vocal harmonies.

It might depend on what kind/style/pitch of singing or what flow/tempo you'll need.
Over the years, I've used mainly (rep to voice pitch) concert flute or oboe or english-horn for most of my "more lyrical" songs while mostly using the saxophone (pitch related) for more rocky or ruggy or speedy stuff.

Then, if your songs use several singers as a simple choir the choice of organs can ease your input, but if the track was meant for the singers' guidance you may have to use some more "defined/harsh/attacking" sound.
