Altus, the voice of the Renaissance

The counter tenor, often misunderstood and surrounded by mysteries, is the next milestone in Eduardo Tarilonte's series of extraordinary voices. Altus is a real counter tenor that enables you to enrich your film or music production with Renaissance and Baroque music.

Jose Hernandez singingUnsurpassed authenticity

Altus is a solo vocal library based on the voice of José Hernándes Pastor, a counter tenor with a wonderful voice and unique expression.

The library is designed to easily create realistic melodies yourself without having to use phrases. This is made possible by an innovative phrase arranger, which lets you combine 26 words (136 elements: words and syllables) with 5 “true legato” vowels (a, e, i, o, u) in a patch with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Altus offers:

  • 5 different real legati and portamenti (a, e, i, o, u)
  • Convincing phrase arranger with 26 words and 2 different articulations.
  • Division of the words into 136 words and syllables

  • 130 wonderful phrases
  • 15 soundscapes, consisting of vocal samples
  • dry recordings, making it easy to use with your favorite reverb
