Adey Bell is an American vocalist, pianist, film composer, and actor. Born under the “Big Sky” of Montana, her music reflects this expanse. As a singer-songwriter, she blends classically influenced piano composition with raw lyrical reflective intimacy. Adey’s independent career over the last decade began with her debut album, Rogue. Released in 2011, it was followed by Vesica, in August 2013. Her third release Silver Wheel was released in 2018. For the last ten years, her one-woman show has been adored at venues throughout the US. Adey is the star of and composer for the feature film “The Last Avatar” from Sacred Mysteries via Gaia TV. In addition to her stunningly soulful, angelic voice and unreal piano chops, Adey’s repertoire of soul-stirring, deliciously composed originals make her impossible to classify.

This is an absolutely amazing instrument/vocal library! I have to admit that I was somewhat skeptical with my expectations before getting this. The main deal makers for me were 1- The samples are unlocked wav files 2- The sale price was very good compared to most vocal libraries & 3- I have a small but positive experience with using other Soundiron products. But I have to say I am sure glad I went for this one.
First, the vocal samples themselves sound really great. Other similar products have an odd, robotic-formant kind of thing going on that sound too pitch processed. These sound really natural at various tempos and the phrase & staccato samples sound especially nice.
Second, the controls I find are very intuitive. Being able to automate the stretch of a phrase in your daw is really cool. The ability to control starting and end points of the phrases is nice as well, however these globally control the same points on all the phrases and have to be automated from each sample change if you want specific start/stop points for different phrases. The pitch shift control enables all the phrases (there are a plethora of them) to be used in whatever key you need.
Third, if you're familiar with Soundiron products you'll know that they have an extensive effects rack for creative sound design that I find fun to use.
Overall I was surprised with the quality and functionality of Soundiron's 'Voice of Wind - Adey'. I'm also surprised how little I've heard of this library. For what it has to offer it seems to be very slept on among the Vocalises and Exhales out there. Compared with all the hyped up vocal libraries that there are, this one deserves to mentioned in their company.
