BACKGROUND

Steven is a pre-eminent talent and a number one go-to instrumentalist for majority of AAA composers who work and record in London. Coupled with Spitfire's ability to produce and curate, samples that sparkle with life, whilst being able assemble and script an instrument that just works "out of the box". Mr Devine's harpsichord module is a must have for any respectable composer.

SPITFIRE PRESENTS THE DEFINITIVE HARPSICHORD LIBRARY

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.

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 pride every single note, ushering the best out of the musician and curate each product with a set of articulations, sounds and performances that we know will give you the definitive take of this wonderful harpsichord. 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 instrument.

the greatest room

FEATURES

This is a deeply sampled library with a selection of essential articulations curated by multi award winning composers and musicians. The library features multiple round robins, dynamic layers presented in an easy to use GUI.

The Spitfire Harpsichord is presented to you by virtuoso Steven Devine whose beautiful instrument (the sound board of which is used in our artwork) and fervent enthusiasm and passion, we hope, has been captured here for your enjoyment. Steven kindly took us through the technicalities of the instrument and has advised us how best to approach its subtle complexities. Combined with our engineer Jake Jacksons masterful handling of this instrument in the world famous Lyndhurst Hall, Air - Studios and a set of easily controllable microphone positions, we believe this to be a totally unique addition to your sonic arsenal. But wait ‘til you hear it!

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!

GUI

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.

GUI
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.
