Spitfire co-founder Paul Thomson grew up sat on the organ stool. From playing in churches before he could reach the pedal board, to practicing at night locked alone in Worcester Cathedral as a teenager, he has always had a soft spot in his heart for this instrument. So after finding the perfect organ to sample this became a pet project.
Paul and his colleagues at Spitfire waited a long time before selecting the organ they wanted to sample, and the timing was perfect with the restoration and the collaboration with the Union Chapel. They started the project back in 2013 and many hours were spent during the night recording! This instrument has bags of character and can go from extraordinarily soft and delicate to full thunder and power while never sounding slightly synthetic or brittle like some of the later instruments.
As an instrument, the pipe organ has featured in many films and on many albums over the years, a sampling includes most recently Interstellar, Rollerball, 2001 A Space Odyssey, many of Danny Elfman's scores including his two Batman offerings, Koyaanisqatsi, The Omega Man, Interview With a Vampire, Patton and The Godfather.
As a bonus feature Spitfires team of sound designers have created 10 eDNA presets using the raw materials of the Organ, which have most recently featured in the 2016 Paul Feig reboot of Ghostbusters, plus a Dev Kit for the user to create their own unique Synths, Basses, Atmospheres and Rhythmic pulsing patches.
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.
