The Mars Symphonic Men's Choir is a virtual choir library for Kontakt that features a full 30-voice male chorus as well as 3 soloists singing in both Slavonic (Russian liturgical) and Latin. A wide variety of lyrical and consonant/vowel content is included for both languages, as well as a large collection of choral effects (shouts, sweeps, clusters, etc.). Mars is designed as a full choral system for epic, symphonic and soundtrack scoring, with plenty of power on the low-end and clarity in the highs.
Mars includes 2 masterfully mixed composite microphone positions (stage and hall), carefully blended from an array of 10 discreet large diaphragm Neumann Microphones, with wide pairs ranging in distance from 1 meter to 25 meters. The two-composite position configuration allows the best balance between placement, flexibility and performance, while providing a truly massive, robust and full-bodied sound.
In addition to the true legato chorus sustains, ALL sustaining articulations in the library include 3-part polyphonic pseudo-legato (all vowel sustains, fast & slow poly-sustains, soloist vowel sustains, soloist slow & melodic poly-sustains).
Mars also features a unique bonus collection of Ambiences, Drones, Textures and FX content.
