    BACKGROUND

    Ever had that feeling that the track you're working on just sounds too "nice". Ever had an A&R man, or a director/ producer say "nice track, good composition, it just needs to be more edgy". Herein may lie the solution.
    SPITFIRE PRESENTS PYLONS!
    Back in Christian Henson's dance days working with the likes of LTJ Bukem and the Freestylers, a term was coined to describe how to best "f@*k up" a beautiful sonic landscape that had maybe got a bit flowery or "intelligent". An escape route for anything sounding too "Chesney" would often be "just sling a couple of pylons on the track and it will be fine...". Christian has teamed up here with top production duo The Flight (Lana Del Ray, Bjork, Orbital, Rufus Wainwright) to create a definitive collection of phrases, squeaks, bleeps, hits and FX from their enormous selection of classic vintage synths. With each instrument they have discussed and defined what that synth does best. Recorded in "Super Mono" via the most pristine Neve line amps and Cranesong AD converters, the team has created a number of parallel mono signals that can be switched in and out or mixed and assigned to different outputs. These include, dry, saturated, circuit bent and a live - and temperamental, classic spring reverb signal path. With a selection of specially selected, in-the-box mono->stereo effects, modulation and filters to warp the signal further.
    In this release release of 3.1 GB (lossless compressed from over 6GB of raw WAV files) from over 3800 samples - synthesisers featured include classic Juno 60, JX3P, MS10, ProOne, SEM, and a Moog.
    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 anthology. 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.

    FEATURES

    Part of the Producer Portfolio which answers repeated requests for drier sounding more manipulatable samples, for more non-orchestral material, and for libraries that are affordable to all. Recorded by the Spitfire team in a number of smaller but excellent London studios, including the new Spitfire HQ in King’s Cross and their old favourite, the classic vintage studio Air-Edel in Marylebone. With a useful selection of classic/ vintage, modern, broad and room microphones, the Producer Portfolio features the talents of legendary musicians, producers, composers and programmers. With Spitfire’s existing orchestral and definitive ranges, we’re very proud of the “impression” that the hall at Air studios gives, but it’s not right for every application. With this new range, we have recorded in smaller spaces, close, mid range and room perspectives with carefully positioned, fine, ‘A class’ mics and pres to give you the raw materials you need to make these sounds your own.

    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.

    MERCURY SYNTH
    The mercury synth is the front end for all of our steam punked, sound designed and warped section of any library. It is an ingenious user interface that allows you to have instant fun without having to roll up your sleeves and go under the Kontakt hood. All of the controls are assignable to your control surface giving you the immediate ability to make our sounds your own.

    Reviews of other Spitfire products

    "I’m am absolutely blown away by the tone, quality and value for money this library delivers! I’m a composer from Australia that has a crap load of software samples from all the major companies out there, but am absolutely in awe by what you guys have produced here! And this is defiantly the best value for money sample library I have bought to date. Well I’m pretty sure you now have a life time customer in me because of this one product and I’ll probably be up all night tonight being re-inspired by this library"
    “I’ve been playing with it all morning long, and it’s making me giddy. If you’re on the fence about buying it and you’re wondering “Is everyone overhyping this or is it really this good” — there’s no over-hype here. It really IS that good. There’s a density to the sound, or maybe a wideness or warmth, that I haven’t heard in libraries before — not even in Symphobia. Just buy it. Totally worth going into debt over.”
    “I’m absolutely speechless, this library is beyond my expectations. It features the BEST strings I have EVER heard!”
    “Thanks you guys! My music has become much better thanks to your work and inspiration that you constantly give. This is the most incredible instruments in my opinion with widest range of possibilities. And I think, having all instruments from Spitfire is like having the one instrument devided to volumes… all of them perfectly works together.”
    “Bottom line, the sound is fantastic…"
    “First of all: I’m at a loss for words to describe the sensational experience that is exploring and playing Sable. I really don’t know what to say. Magnificent achievement. Seriously: this is the stringslibrary I have been dreaming about and waiting for all my musicmaking life. It is simply perfect. Thanks sooooo much to everyone at Spitfire.”
    "WOW! Sounds like I invited a real players… It’s so amazing! Thanks guys."
    "Cannot say how amazing that sounds…..just mind blowing."
    "The best of its type I have ever heard – period. I do have a load of orchestral stuff, but this is the first library I have ever played where I can honestly visualise real players right in my little studio."
