Singing... some of us are born with this god-given talent, while some of us can only belch out our favorite tunes at the local karaoke bar. Even if your attempt to sing a Celine Dion song miserably fails into a viral youtube video, you're most likely having a phenomenal time trying. Or maybe you sing fine, but would love to reach some new pitches that are just slightly out of your range.

Well, you should already know by now, that Aviary has got your back! For today's instrument release, we've packed the highs and lows, the majors and minors, and everything in between, in 4 brand new instrument packs, for a total of 48 stunning tracks! I'm pretty sure that's more vocals than an entire church choir can handle!...

Launch Roc now to find all 4 of these packs inside the instruments bar, located on the right hand side. They are labeled:

Singing Vowels F Maj,
Singing Vowels F Min,
Singing Vowels M Maj,
and Singing Vowels M Min.

The F stands for Female, M for Male, Maj for Major, and Min for Minor. Wow, say that 5 times fast! And remember, every instrument, including all the Singing Vowels, is licensed under creative commons attribution, and can be used commercially. This means that you can use any music you've created in Roc (even in a commercial project!) as long as you give Aviary credit.

Roc superstar Styromus has gone ahead and created us a jaw-dropping sample to get you pumped and inspired!

Open Roc now to start making your creation. If you think your digital vocals can beat the rest, enter your song to be the king of Singing Vowels, and for a chance to win $$$. In case you suddenly forgot how to use Roc (who could forget??), check out this refresher.

Hint for Day 9 release (coming Wednesday): Began as a West Coast slang term and was first used to refer to music in Chicago in about 1915.
