Mercury Micro is the compact starter edition of Mercury Symphonic Boys’ Choir library. This slice of a traditional English boy’s choral ensemble library includes piano and forte versions of the sustaining and staccato articulations of two important vowels: “Ah” and “Oo.” It also includes two sustaining, tempo-sync-able word articulations from Christian liturgy, “Kyrie” and “Eleison.”
The Mercury Boys’ Choir captures the youth and purity of a full boy’s choral ensemble consisting of 25 singers ages 8 to 13 with a close microphone position. Soundiron recorded the award-winning Pacific Boychoir in the same large hall that the Olympus Symphonic Choir, Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble, Montclarion Grand Piano and many other Soundiron libraries were captured. The hall gives it a bright and open sound with just the right touch of transparent natural reverberation and a stellar tone.
The library comes equipped with 3 standard instrument presets, each focusing on a category of choral articulations. Also included are 17 special FX presets that demonstrate the creative possibilities of this compact yet powerful library. These FX presets are exclusive to Mercury Micro and each offers a unique sonic flavor all its own.
The custom scripted Kontakt user interface gives you flexible control features like attack, release, transient start offset, dynamic swelling, layer blend, panning, Tempo Sync, Pad mode, and Key Range. There’s also controls for Vibrato, Legato, 3-Band EQ, and reverb with over a 50 custom impulse responses featuring life-like spaces, such as cathedrals, churches, halls, bunkers, garages, tunnels, chambers, rooms and creative FX convolution impulse responses. Mercury Micro is built for the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.5.2 and later.
This library is designed for the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.5.2 or later.

A fine recording and adds a simple boys choir without splurging on the larger products. Excellent
I am very happy with these children's choirs, I already have several women's and men's choirs, this one completes my collection.
Die Chöre bieten zwar keine komplexen Worte oder Phrasen, wie evtl. andere Librabys, haben aber dafür einen äußerst realistischen Sound. Ich nutze diese Chöre für orchestrale Metal-Parts. Hier geben sie ordentlich Druck und versprühen ergreifende Atmosphäre. Ich empfehle das Produkt allen Orchester- und Symphonic/Power Metal-Komponisten.
