Andys Kit Bag is an introduction to the marvelous world of Andy and his amazing collection of ethnic flutes and other woodwinds. 5 new deep sampled esoteric instruments IN ONE PACK. Recorded "The Spitfire Way" in their new facility in King's Cross central London, with mixable selection of the finest valve, ribbon and perspective mics, via world-class Neve pre-amps and Cranesong A/D converters. Each instrument contains essential articulations that best characterise both instrument and player alongside some incredible "artisan" articulations that bring Andy's flutes to life whilst still obeying the direction of your composition.
Andy's Kit Bag is ingeniously scripted to spring to life straight out of the box. For ease of use, and alongside standard articulation switching, are beautifully designed "performance patches" that respond intelligently to the way you play. Included in this collection are 5 of his most requested gems from his endless collection of curiosities: Fujara, Ocarina, Chinese Bamboo Flute, the haunting Contrabass Flute and a simply spectacular Shakuhachi.
Andy's Kit Bag is part of the new "Producer's Portfolio". Recorded in a dry environment with a number of different mics, to give a raw set of building blocks to become the DNA of your future compositions. It joins a selection of studio essentials including an amazing selection of exotic percussion by Inder Goldfinger.
Part of the Producer Portfolio which answers repeated requests for drier sounding more manipulatable samples, for more non-orchestral material, and for libraries that are affordable to all. Recorded by the Spitfire team in a number of smaller but excellent London studios, including the new Spitfire HQ in Kings Cross and their old favourite, the classic vintage studio Air-Edel in Marylebone. With a useful selection of classic/ vintage, modern, broad and room microphones, the Producer Portfolio features the talents of legendary musicians, producers, composers and programmers. With Spitfires existing orchestral and definitive ranges, were very proud of the “impression that the hall at Air studios gives, but its not right for every application. With this new range, we have recorded in smaller spaces, close, mid range and room perspectives with carefully positioned, fine, A class mics and pres to give you the raw materials you need to make these sounds your own.
Please note that the download size of this product is 2.7 GB!
We like instruments that just open and play. So we have worked for many years to create a simple to use and uniform GUI so you learn one, you learn them all. With improvements being made constantly we frequently update the whole range to maintain uniformity in our interfaces across our entire range.
THE OVERVIEW PANEL - Gives you a quick and easy way to access, view and load the different articulations, mic mixes and essential controller functions which you can then re-assign to suit your workflow.
GENERAL CONTROLS PANEL- A deeper but still simple UI panel that allows you to tweak the general settings. How many round robins you would like and how you would like them to behave. How would you like memory to be organised alongside pitch options and how velocity works.
THE OSTINATUM - Quite simply a little inspiration machine. Not quite an arpegiattor, not quite a sequencer. This intuitive device allows you to build up complex patterns that react to your playing to achieve wild systems results tantalising Zimmeresque tension beds or cheeky multi tounging effects!
