If there was a single product that could sum up the foundation of Spitfire's approach to sampling it would be this. Recorded at the studio that has played host to scores from blockbusters that have grossed billions of dollars, with the same players playing the same instruments. Deep sampled with the usual affluent approach. If you want the blockbuster sound you have to go bold, if you want cinematic you have to go big. The ultimate encyclopaedic compendium of Symphonic strings sampling, recorded in London, with no expense spared. SSS is the 'Daddy'.
60 Star Players, 16 1st Violins, 14 2nd Violins, 12 Violas, 10 Cellos & 8 Basses super deep sampled with over 175 articulations, including 59 shorts, 94 longs, and 5 extraordinary performance legato patches programmed by Andrew Blaney. Recorded with multiple round robins, dynamic layers and presented with 3 essential and versatile microphone positions. In addition to each individual section there is also a comprehensive selection of articulations and techniques presented in an 'ensemble' format designed for sketching and composing with 'out of the box' satisfaction.
This is a shot at creating the definitive compendium of Symphonic strings, recorded with a no-holds-barred approach. From classic and elegant vibrato, and expression controlled 'dolce' samples, to Spitifre´s own up-to-the-minute techniques designed by the award winning team of composers and producers. Highlights of these include the hugely popular 'flautando' and 'super sul tasto' articulations.
Go as detailed as you wish with each section individually, or dive in with the specially curated 'ensembles' tools designed for quick writing and broad brush strokes.
Buying or cross-grading into this core set of samples allows you the opportunity to purchase expansion packs with more microphones and mixes, and other exciting add-ons, like the exclusive and much sought after "Evolutions" pack.
Every articulation for every section plus ensembles formerly available in Mural volumes 1, 2, 3 & Ensembles in a single encyclopaedic compendium:
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!
