With 13 deep sampled articulations and 6 different mic types and perspectives, 13,879 samples and 13.63GB of uncompressed raw WAV data, we're sure you'll agree this is a characterful but definitive take on this very unique player.
Having graduated from London University (Royal Holloway) with a music degree, Chris continued his cello studies with Chris Bunting at the Royal College. He now works mainly as a session musician, recording on many film soundtracks including Batman - The Dark Knight, Skyfall, The Bourne trilogy, The Hobbit, Sherlock Holmes, the Narnia Chronicles, BBC's Dr Who, Inception and Into the Woods.
As well as performing with many orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic, Chris works frequently with contemporary composers such as Joby Talbot, Max Richter and Andrew Skeet. He has also toured and recorded with numerous rock and pop acts including Sir Paul McCartney, Radiohead, Sam Smith, Florence and the Machine, Adele and The Divine Comedy. Chris is currently Musical Director for the band Elbow.
Adopting techniques we learned and perfected with the hugely successful "Andy Findon - Kit Bag", Spitfire leads on with the next instalment in their vibe-range, their personality led, performance oriented sampled virtual instruments that are finding their way onto award winning recordings the world over.
Centred around a sophisticated virtual instrument with a host of "artisan" phrases, standard and additional techniques, including "performance vibrato" that gives you a realistic sounding presentation of the instrument out-of-the-box.
Spitfire believe they have encapsulated the very soul that is Chris. A man who always brings a distinct element of cool to our sessions. The on-trend cello style we're all looking for from searing emotion to heart breaking timidity.
Spitfire used their purpose built "dry" stage in central London to record this via 6 top-of-the-line valve, ribbon mics and perspective into top-of-the-range NEVE mic pre's and Cranesong and Apogee AD converters.
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 the Euphone we have also created a different way of working with your new sounds.
"CLASSIC" CONTROL PANEL - A simple UI panel that allows you to access the sounds available in this library and mix them together. Alongside the various signal chains sampled which can also be loaded, mixed and assigned to different output via this panel. You can also tweak the general settings. How many round robins you would like and how you would like them to behave?
