Voice Of Wind: Connie is the fourth volume in our modular female solo vocal series Voices of Wind. Each volume focuses on a new vocalist with a distinct creative style and comes complete with a full package of vital chromatic and melodic articulations that sound great and are easy and convenient to use in any music or video production project that comes your way. This edition focuses on the crisp and spirited mezzo-soprano voice of Connie Doolan. Her cheerful, silky, and polished vocal character effortlessly fuses jazz, cabaret, folk, blues, pop, and musical theater vocal styles.
This 2.88 GB library includes over 3,300 samples, featuring sustain, staccato (8x round-robin) and true legato chromatic articulations for 6 core vowels: Ah, Eh, Ee, Mm, Oh and Oo. It also includes over a thousand live dynamic, melodic phrases organized by mood, key and tempo. This huge collection of live phrases are divided into 100bpm and 140bpm tempos for both Bright and Dark categories, as well as a special 120bpm Hummed category. We’ve also included 20 sound-designed custom FX and ambient presets to expand your creative palette. It all comes together in a complete, efficient and deeply-refined toolbox of chromatic articulations and powerful melodic elements with tempo-syncing and key options, all built into a flexible, full-featured user interface.

She has worked as an actor in regional theater including the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Oregon Repertory Theater, CitiArts Theater, PCPA Theaterfest and Upon These Boards (featured vocalist in UTB’s world peace event Lysistrata Project at Berkeley Rep.) As a singer, Connie has performed and recorded with the cabaret act Calliope, and Bay Area vocalists Sylvia Herold and Patrice Haan in their Mehitabel trio. She has also performed and/or toured with: the Magic Theater (“Caliban Dreams,” opera); the Pentatonics (Orff-based performance ensemble); Z Space Theater (“Ariadne,” musical theater); Orpheus Ensemble (world music ensemble); The Mighty Avalanche Choir (folk-bluegrass-gospel band) and the Calling All Choir. Connie is a sought-after vocal instructor and teaches music to children as well as adults.
