No orchestral library is complete without it's leaders! So when casting this Spitfire went for the best and.... they agreed.
Spitfires Definitive Range endeavours to offer the world a one-stop shop for classic and esoteric instruments played by the greats. As all these instruments are recorded in situ, in the same room, theyre designed to lock together sonically whether it be some timpani from the percussion range coupled with your Sable libraries. Or indeed a more curious band made up of the HG20, a plucked piano and a harp, it is designed to sound like theyre together in the same room. We provide a series of fantastic mixing options that allow you to dry stuff up or make it more ambient should you so wish, whilst preserving the acoustic integrity and perspective of a slavishly recalled microphone set up and room configuration. The instruments are all deep sampled but designed to play easily out-of-the-box, with easy integration into larger arrangements and templates without risk of demanding too much from your system resources. Recorded by Jake Jackson at Lyndhurst Hall – Air Studios, on one of the finest scoring stages in the world, through an array of priceless vintage microphones via Neve “Montserrat pre-amps, to a beautifully serviced Studer 2 tape machine and then into digital at 96k via the best Prism AD converters: this is an unparalleled signal chain.
This module features the finest of session skill talents available in the UK today with Andrew Haveron on Violin, Bruce White on Viola and Caroline Dale on Cello, these are three players you have heard many many times already, whether in concerts around the world, on any recent Hollywood blockbuster recorded in the UK, or a raft of exceptional independent movie appearances and top tracks from a whos who of pop and rock. We challenge you to find a major film score recorded in London in recent times that doesn't feature one of these players.
Spitfire is a collective of award winning composers and technologists. We don't just record and build samples we go further than that. We produce with great priude every single note, ushering the best out of the musician and curate each product with a set of articulations, sounds and perfromances that we know will give you the definitive take of this wonderful trio. We engage our specialists not only as performers, but as technical advisers to give us a consensus based on experience of what most composers want out of them, what DEFINES the instruments.
This is a deeply sampled library with a selection of essential articulations curated by multi award winning composers and musicians. The library features multiple dynamic layers, instantly useable expression options and a set of essential articulations and easily usable fully functional legato via an ingeniously scripted GUI.
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.
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 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!
