Soundiron has announced the release of Mercury Elements, an exquisitely recorded and expertly programmed boys’ chorus for Native Instruments Kontakt and Kontakt Player, built from the most essential elements of the comprehensive Mercury Symphonic Boys’ Choir library.
We’ve carefully crafted this library to provide a fluid and intuitive musical experience, with a professional children’s choral sound and full feature set, for an unprecedented value.
Mercury Elements includes the close microphone position, captured in a large hall for brilliance, clarity and a naturally stellar tone. It was recorded with a 25-voice boys’ choral ensemble, with the award-winning Pacific Boychoir. It includes Sustains, Staccatos and Marcatos for the primary Ah, Eh, Oh and Oo vowels, in both piano and forte dynamics with 2x round-robin variations per note. Control each articulation individually or layer them in our powerful and easy Playmaster system.
This library offers piano and forte true polyphonic legato, for both Ah and Oo vowel sounds. There are also a selection of Latin sustaining and staccato multi-syllable words, recorded chromatically with automatic host tempo-synching. And we’ve included an essential selection of children’s choral effects and and an exclusive new collection of choral atmospheres, pads and drones to complete this package.
Mercury Elements includes 16 presets, 1266 lossless ncw samples and is 1.8 GB installed (2.61 GB wav source). This library is compatible with the free Kontakt Player and can be added to the “Libraries” rack.
Mercury Elements is available for purchase for $99 USD. Owners of Mercury Elements get a 20% discount on the upgrade to the full Mercury Symphonic Boys’ Choir, as well as a cross-grade discount on the full unlocked version of Native Instruments Kontakt or Komplete Bundle.
