The Soundiron Mercury Symphonic Boychoir is a comprehensive traditional English Boy's Choir library for Kontakt. This complete children's choral ensemble features 42 staccatos & 42 sustaining marcatos with 4+ round robin per note, 18 tempo-syncing Latin poly-syllabic sustains with real-time phrase-synchronous polyphonic legato, unique poly-staccatos, dynamic true legato vowels with real-time speed control from fluid portamento to tight, drone and whispering chants, trills, sweeps, swells and other choral effects. It also includes a pair of soloists (soprano/younger and alto/older), each with a wide range of Latin poly-syllabic phrases, staccatos and fluid true legato vowel sustain.
Mercury features version 3 of Soundiron's Phrase Builder with instant marcato-staccato syllable switching and multi-sequence pattern creation, saving and instant recall, all with live key-switch control. It also includes the new Word Master, a simple graphical interface that allows instant selection from a choice of dozens of sustaining marcato words and staccato syllables, with independent multi-layer selection and blending, plus legato, key-switching and other advanced features.
The library was recorded in the same large hall as the Mars Men's and Venus Women's Symphonic Choirs (Olympus), with matching close and hall mic positions. Mercury includes newly integrated custom mic distance mixing into every preset with optional mic purge/load controls. Conducted by maestro Robert Geary of Olympus/Requiem/Volti and SF Choral Society and performed by the award-winning Pacific Boychoir (ages 8-13) featuring Director Kevin Fox, this library has been specifically crafted for professional scoring and post production work.
