Beautifully crafted steel pans presented in two forms; for use with orchestral material on Films, TV, & Games, to a fantastic selection of presets designed for use on modern RnB and EDM hosted on the popular eDNA engine. From hauntingly beautiful soft layers to searing metallic bites. Session star Frank Ricotti takes us on yet another adventure on the greatest scoring stage in the world.
The steel drums are deep sampled, with pristine management of the harmonic language of the drums to give a versatile and really touching tone at the softer levels, almost so they're not immediately recognisable as steel pans. To the louder, brasher dynamic layers which have an unashamed Caribbean 'splang'!
Spitfire Audio presents their Steel drums with two interfaces, the standard "multi mic" designed for those familiar with the orchestral range, with front-end instant tweaking of articulations and microphones being used. They´ve also loaded the steel drums into their popular super-tweakable, eDNA engine with dozens of amazing 'spring out of the box' presets designed by an award winning team of composers, producers and sound designers.
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 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-tonguing effects!
Over the last seven years Spitfire - in partnership with Blake Robinson - have been creating some of the most intuitive and ingenious scripts, simple to use GUIs and attractive front ends. A year ago, we wiped the script clean and set about creating a monster of a new script engine. This we call eDNA. Two sets of sounds can be used in conjunction with the eDNA engine to quickly, dramatically and awesomely create a new audio experience for the next generation of music makers.
