"All in all, this library costs as much as any average virtual instrument, but for that money you get your personal live vocalist. To me, this is priceless. Shevannai brings a real human voice in your production, it is not one of those “sounds almost like” or “pretty damn close” sort of libraries. It is as real as a recorded real vocalist could be real. It sounds as if your work was done by one of the best worlds recording magicians. So, it is just a matter of question whether you need such thing or not. I definitively need it. I even plan to use it along with my vocalists. Human voice was and will ever be the most impressive instrument known to the human race."

"I had thought elves were rare these days, but with well over 4000 samples in this collection, it seems those who didn't 'sail into the West' are very talkative. In total there are 33 words, 27 staccato words, 52 elven phrases, 57 whispered elven poems and 110 different short whispers. This is a surprisingly useful resource, whether for New Age CDs, fantasy video games or fantasy films — not exactly a tiny market. But there's more.


Lately, I've noticed it's increasingly common to be grilled about the meaning of any foreign vocal samples as library music companies try to avoid offence. The neat thing about singing in elvish is you're unlikely to offend anyone — except possibly members of the Tolkien Society who, at worst, will grumble quietly amongst themselves before returning to their real ale and pipeweed."

"Shevannai or Shouldn’t I?

As for buying considerations, I think the value is in the multi-faceted ways Shevannai can be used. While some might compare Shevannai’s main legato to those with more extensive word-builder capabilities, the approach here is really about the way the Elven content itself intentionally evades a “known” word-specific focus – the mystery of sung, spoken, and whispered musings are the true appeal. And still, I think the unique vocalist is a great addition to any sampled vocal library collection, as are the soundscapes which make Shevannai a great sound design consideration as well."
