Recorded at Air Studios, Lyndhurst Hall, one of the greatest scoring stages in the world and showcasing the searing talents of percussionist prodigy Joby Burgess. Spitfire Percussion is a genre defining bench mark, offering ultimate playability, reality, with the impact but also clarity of the hall, and a controllability and depth not to be found anywhere else in a library of this type. As with all of our modules, this is designed specifically for the media composer and we hope it will be a tool for music makers to use for generations to come.
This is simply vast array of instruments stretching over 160 patches, grouped across, Drums Hi, Drums Lo, Mallets Metal (which includes the Harry Potter celeste!), Mallets Wood, Timpani, Toys, Unpitched Metal (including some awesome cinematic anvils and a selection of amazing trash) and Unpitched Wood. However we havent bored you with hundreds of different beater types, we have built – we believe – the definitive Marimba patch, alongside the vibraphone, and xylophone, and a definitive timpani featuring a multi stick dynamic & pitch range that gives a powerful but controllable sound as the percussionist would play it on the scoring stage.
All instruments are deeply sampled with up to 8 round robins per dynamic and up to 8 dynamics per note.
All instruments have the ability to mix and/or mute mic positions from the front panel: Close mics, Decca tree and Ambient outriggers. Route the spots into your centre channel, the tree in L&R and the ambients in Ls & Rs, and you also have a perfect 5.0 perc library. Or simply keep in stereo and mix according to taste. All controls can be fully automated.
We are confident that once you buy this, you will never buy another orchestral percussion library.
The library is presented with numerous microphone positions which you can not only mix and blend to fit the application youre working on, but also automate for dramatic shifts in focus and depth. They're also fully output assignable for surround and 5.1 use. As mentioned before the definitive range is designed to fit in with Spitfire's entire orchestral canon, including Albion, BML and some of the Signature Range as if they're in the same room together!
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.
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.
Quite simply a little inspiration machine. Not quite an arpeggiator, 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!
