Voices of War - Men of the North

When you think about vinkings and nordic warrior chants, you think about Voices of War! This library lets you travel to the North and experience the heavy, low-voiced chants of nordic men and their battle cries.

An Ambient Tribal / Cinematic Color

Contrary to Voxos, Men of the North dials in a specific style of a half-voiced (sotto/mezzo voce), reserved style of cinematic singing. Special attention was paid to getting a true blended tone, perfect for pads and drones but also capable of carrying a word-based melody at a strong mezzo forte. The library excels with the modwheel set around 50-75 where holding a simple unison or fifth provides enough color to simply be its own cue. The color of the choir never formally opens up enough to be considered classical. It maintains its carefully chosen quasi-warrior (non-professional singer) tone perfect for this style.

VoicesOfWar Inst 1Neumann KU100 “Fritz” Mixing Preset 
Specifically For Video Game/Headphone Use

Men of The North is a must have for video game composers and viking epic music composers. Cinesamples set up the unique KU100 head-shaped microphone, affectionately known as "Fritz," directly in the middle of the choir with singers set around it in a semicircle. 

The unique binaural capabilities of the KU100 combined with a set of headphones immerses the listener in a true 360º perspective that simulates the human listening experience. Perfect for interactive video game audio engines and perspective/distance based listening.

Morph Patches, WordBuilding and Chanting, Legato

Cinesamples' morph patches utilize long and blendy vowel morphs from the ensemble - the subtle movement it provides coats the tone with the auditory version of an oil-on-water slick - a welcome departure from static whole notes, and impossible to create without actually recording it. 

VoicesOfWar Inst 2Men of the North’s wordbuilding engine is specifically constructed to provide Norse sounding phrases without the labor of traditional world building. Simply play and the words will automatically change for you. It’s a wordbuilder without the effort.

A staple of Viking Style is the Chant - the repeating of words on a single tone - reminiscent of a Holy Man’s Incantation or a war chant. This library features true legato unisons on chants - the modulation from one word to the next was recorded in legato intervals (unisons) and isn’t a simulation. Traditional, smooth sounding Legato is of course included.


Select from the menu of patches on the Presets page to change all parameters.  You may scroll through the various articulations in the center of the shield from a master patch, or use the keyswitches to change the basic articulations.

  • VoicesOfWar Inst 4Vowel Morphs: The vowel morphs were recorded as morphs without scripting - the vocalists modified their voices live on the stage

  • Fourths & Fifths: The Fourths & Fifths were actually recorded as divisi harmonies on the scoring stage

  • Pitch Morph: Use the BLEND knob (CC2) to crossfade between in-tune and out-of-tune for the Pitch Morph articulation

  • Whispers: Use the BLEND knob (CC2) to adjust the 'chaos' of the whispers

  • Falsetto Morphs: Use the BLEND knob (CC2) to adjust the vowel timbre in this extended range

  • A Collection of Other Function Patches: Other useful patches that many libraries ignore are included: Low Throat Drones, Pitchless Drones, Whisper Loops and more


Voices of War - Men of the North has 4 essential mixes:

  • Tight - a standard, straightforward, shapeable mix that allows the user to place the choir into any mix setting with simple modification. 

  • Dragonborne - a "finished," dark, distant mix that lends itself to cinematic settings. 

  • Head - Neumann's binaural KU100 microphone without any processing.  Perfect for video game composers, this mix is especially tasty with headphones. 

  • Full Spectrum - a "finished," panoramically wide mix that richly fills the stereo spectrum
