ETERNITYBuilt on our exclusive Audiobro orchestral engine, the Eternity Adult Choir is our new flagship choir – an elite 48 piece multi-ensemble (4 sections) choir. Each ensemble was recorded separately so it’s like having four choirs in one. There is also an add-on library called Eternity Expansion featuring Array Divisi and Ribbon microphones. We carefully chose the choir and scoring stage size to provide you with the most flexibility in achieving lush, powerful, and detailed performances without sounding too “washy” with ambiance:

For detailed choral writing or on occasions when you want the gorgeous sound of ribbon mics, the Eternity Expanded Library is for you! Eternity Expanded is a paid choir add-on library to the main library (Eternity Adult Choir). Eternity Expanded can only be purchased as a bundle with Eternity Adult Choir, or separately if you already own Eternity Adult Choir. In other words, you must own or purchase Eternity Adult Choir to use the Expanded version.
Eternity Expanded Mics:
4 cardioid close mics array with our Array Divisi technology
A stereo ribbon mic mix
Array Divisi is an exciting new feature based on the close mics in front of the singers. The 4 cardioid close mics focus on the small group of singers in front of the mics and each mic is assigned to our Auto Divisi engine resulting in what we call “Array Divisi“. This provides you all sorts of detailed control, from smaller sounding divisi section sizes to creative panning and more.
Choose the singers in front of Array Mic C (Sopranos C for example) to be the ones performing the lead voice. Pan them any way you want. The possibilities are endless.
The ribbon mics provide you with that sought-after “ribbon mic” sound. The Ribbon mics were placed between the close mics and the main stage Decca tree. This provides you with a nice warm sounding stereo 2-mic mix (versus the stage mics that are based on the 3-mic Decca tree).
Eternity Expanded has the same sustained and staccato articulations as the main Eternity Choir library (all Latin syllables and vowel sustains, legato melisma, etc.) minus all the Aleatoric and special FX, and pads.
As easy to use as Audiobro’s Genesis library... with all the power of an elite adult choir.
Built on Audiobro’s Genesis articulations and engine, Eternity features an elite adult choir singing even more articulations and dynamics than Genesis – while maintaining Genesis’ ease of use.
Pro tip #1: Combine the close mics with the surround mics. This gives you detail plus lushness!
The close mics are fantastic for adding wonderful detail to your mixes, and the surround mics have a wonderful “gooeyness” to them (for lack of a better word). Combining them and adjusting the volumes to your liking can sound beautiful.
Pro Tip #2: 100% quantize your MIDI note-starts and let Look Ahead ease your workload!
We all know how tedious it can be to get sampled syllables to play back in time! Quantizing your MIDI and using Look Ahead reduces the tedium of having to micromanage your part so that the different syllables play in time.
Watch how easy it is to play polyphonic legato with Auto Divisi mode on. Also, learn about Melisma — a singing style whereby the vowel of each word is maintained as the active legato vowel and sung until the end of the legato phrase.
Audiobro’s Auto Divisi is a feature that distributes your chord tones to the appropriate sections giving you a much more realistic and balanced sound than other traditional libraries. Simply play a line or chords and let our engine do all the rest for you.
If you are not familiar with our Auto Divisi, check out the video below. It’s much easier to see how it works. We understand that the video below is a Genesis video, but the engine is relatively the same:
Our Look Ahead feature might not look like much on the surface, but it can be a great time saver for you! Anyone who has worked with choir syllables knows how tedious and time-consuming it can be to edit the MIDI so that the syllables play back in time. Now you can simply 100% quantize your phrase and not worry about spending hours micro-editing your MIDI for your Eternity Choir syllables to play more in time.
The Ensemble page is where the Stage and Audiobro’s coveted Auto Divisi and Delay & Humanization (DNH) features reside. Here you can choose and place your ensembles on our virtual stage and our Auto Divisi will intelligently cater to your choices.
Some of the Ensemble Page’s main features include:
Auto Divisi automatically adapts to your ensemble choices
52 ambiance presets using exclusive Audiobro IRs
X/Y pad for easy placement of ensembles
Independent volume, width, and pan per ensemble
Adjustable Stage amounts for each microphone
Auto-purge samples from ensembles that are not being used on stage
The Switcher is Audiobro’s advanced way of switching Phrases, Mixes, and Ensemble presets in a very customizable and intuitive fashion. There are 2 views for the Switcher, the Basic View, and the Advanced Editor. The Basic View is always visible from the performance page and here you can set basic switching. The Advanced Editor is where you can set more complex and creative switching and do things like layering and CC switching.
Here are some of the Switcher’s features:
Keyboard switching (the traditional way to key switch)
Continuous Controller (CC) — switching using CCs
Velocity switching — use keyboard velocity information coupled with logic to help make key switches
Layered key switching
We understand the video below is for Genesis, but the same principles apply to Eternity:
Eternity integrates seamlessly with Native Instruments’ Komplete Kontrol software and NKS* eco system.
Control the most important features of Eternity directly from NI hardware and using your sequencer’s device automation. We’ve made it quicker and easier to find sounds. Browse and load all KOMPLETE Instrument presets from a single plugin. Knobs will display all the relevant controls on NI’s LED displays.

Please Note: Eternity Expanded is an add-on library to the main Eternity Adult Choir library. You must have activated Eternity Adult Choir in Native Access to be able to use Eternity Expanded.

Access To All Articulations In One Patch
The main performance page interface allows quick access to all the main playback controls. Instruments come pre-configured for easy articulations switching but setting things up your own way is simple and intuitive. We have carefully programmed and combined multiple divisis into single patches making it simple and intuitive to load a group of divisis or a single divisi — you have total control. With our newer intelligent Auto Divisi, you can simply play and our engine will distribute the divisi sections evenly to your chord tones avoiding the dreaded (and fake-sounding) samples build-up sound so familiar in other libraries. Legato | Sustains – Real legato, portamento, and glissando with user-controllable transition speeds and volumes. The sustained bowings include normal arco and sordino. Shorts – Staccato and Spiccato. Depending on the section (Vlns vs Vlas), with combined divisi playing at the same time, you can have up to 128 round robins for the violins (4 x 4 x 4). Powerful play-assist, key switching, CC, and host automation options allow for changing these in a way that suits your work style. Pizzicato – Plucking the note with the finger as opposed to bowing. Users can control the duration with the “Tighten” knob. Tremolo – Rapid back-and-forth bowing at multiple dynamics that also have legato, portamento, and glissando integration. Trills (Diatonic) – Major and minor trills at multiple dynamics that have been programmed to play diatonically to the key you choose. These have also have legato, portamento, and glissando integration. Harmonics – Both fingered and open string harmonics played in the positions that yield great harmonic sustains. Bartok Pizzicato – For the basses, we had the players pull the string back and let it slam into the fingerboard thus creating the famed Bartok Pizzicato sound.
