Spitfire Audio partnered with the London Contemporary Orchestra, whose work with the likes of Radiohead and Jed Kurzel to create a string library that gives you access to this unique, experimental palette.
This library contains multi-sampled violin, viola, cello and bass sections, and has been recorded at the dry stage in London. With a host of dynamically controllable, never-before-sampled articulations, this rich set of diverse recordings are both playable and musical, and will transform your work.
Members of LCO became interested in working with Spitfire Audio when they started experimenting with their Evo Grid lines. Over a period of two years they met and talked about how they could make a library that was unlike any other, and it became clear to them that working with the LCO could only lead to that outcome.
Winner of the Ensemble category at the Royal Philharmonic Society Music Awards 2015, the London Contemporary Orchestra has established itself as one of the UKs most innovative and respected ensembles – promoting the best new music and cross-arts collaborations to an increasingly wide audience.
Creating this library allowed Spitfire Audio to do two things: capture the unique techniques and styling of an extremely exciting group of musicians for use in their own compositions and create new instruments with them that could only be possible by harnessing the power of modern sampling technology.
The library comprises recordings of 6 Violins, 4 Violas, 3 Celli and 2 Basses with the Celli in octaves, all in a tight room. Over 100 articulations were captured across all sections and weve created a unique Detuned Open String instrument for all sections.
For each articulation:
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 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-tonguing effects!
