Questionably Barbershop is a simple 4-piece male vocal ensemble, crafted in the style of an old timey
Barbershop Quartet. Featuring the humble vocal talents of our own Mike Peaslee, Gregg Stephens and
Spencer Nunamaker, this library offers basic chromatic sustains and staccato articulations, improvised scat
and bebop phrases and even a couple of classic Americana folk song construction kits that are broken down
line-by-line with each vocal part directly accessible in several different root keys. From a deep booming bass
to a soaring high tenor falsetto, Questionably Barbershop gives you easy 4-part harmony in a box.
Each one of our singers (Mike: Tenor Lead, Gregg: Baritone, Spencer: Bass and ‘Mikey’: Tenor Falsetto) performed
3 types of sustains and staccatos: Doo, Lah and Woh. Using our custom GUI controls, these 3 different
sounds can also act as pure Oo, Ah and Oh vowel sounds, with adjustable durations and attack shaping.
Our advanced scripting gives you automatic 4-part harmony voicing in the Ensemble Sustains and Staccatos
presets, ensuring that you always hear the Lead first, the Bass in his appropriate range and the Tenor
for those piercing high notes! And for a big male chorus sound, you can select the “Unison” mode for all
four voices over the whole key range. We even give you Auto-pan feature to intelligently spread the singers
over the stereo field for a nice wide sound.
The Scat ’N Bebop phrase section includes 356 improvised phrases, with real-time tempo-synching and time
-stretching. Phrases are included in the root keys of C, E, and G# with easy transposition to other keys.
You’ll also find our DSP Rack panel, with multi-effects, compression, EQ, amp/speaker simulation and convolution
reverb, with dozens of our favorite rooms, halls, chambers, cathedrals and FX impulses.
