Endless Creative Inspiration for your Music-Making

The EARTH ENCOUNTERS collection has been produced from a unique and extraordinary collection of sound recordings. The collection will help support the work being undertaken to prepare the incredible archive that was Davids gift to the world for its eventual establishment as the premier resource for researchers and musicians the world over. The work includes cataloguing and digitising the entire archive with the aim of finding a permanent home within a national museum or university.

Close your eyes, listen, and its like youre really there as part of the truly enlightening experience, enjoying the perfect sonic ‘sweet spot. So many of these recordings feature instruments, music, and languages that have since become extinct. By being offered to the world with Spitfire Audio they are being brought back to life, sowing the seeds of inspiration for future music-makers by becoming the DNA of what we will be listening to for future generations to come.

Spitfire has worked with an initial selection from the archive to present a library of carefully curated loops, phrases, one shot instruments, and vocal performances, impeccably recorded by David, which will provide instant inspiration to composers, producers, and musicians all over the world. “Listening to these extraordinarily vivid recordings is akin to looking through a window into a different time and place” -Christian Henson and Paul Thomson.

One Music Banner


Selections are presented in DAVID FANSHAWE - EARTH ENCOUNTERS VOL 1 in such a way that they can be pitched up and down, played at different tempos/speeds, and more besides. There is also a stupendous section of ‘warped content where the Spitfire Audio team took the original recordings and created all manner of interesting sounds from them, ranging from ethereal pads to pounding distorted beats and anything and everything in-between.

Such sounds are loaded into two differently-designed ‘engines — each geared up to differing sonic approaches and treatments. The first provides an easy way to add ‘everyday effects like chorus, delay, distortion, EQ, filtering, phasing, and reverb to the original content, together with more radical sound morphing controls (within the Wobble and Yoke section).

The warped content creatively benefits from Spitfire Audios powerful proprietary eDNA (electronic DNA) engine — as devastatingly demonstrated on the earlier EDNA01 - EARTH release, which includes individual and independent modulators; control of trim, bend, glide, cloning, tuning, and ADSR; wobbles that modulate pitch, volume, and filters; a gating and sequencer section with full control over amount, shape, speed, and length; 34 custom effects and impulse responses; and also an ability to crossfade between two selected sounds with speed and phase control capabilities additionally at hand… how adventurous can you go?
