Here’s some of the lovely things people have been saying about their new (released Wednesday) symphonic string library. Thanks to you all. For more info on Mural go HERE.

My internet has finally allowed me to download and the
few hours I’ve been playing around I’m in love. My bank is not loving me,
but it is worth every cent.

Mural is unbelievably good. Perfection.

Sounds amazing, game changer. (M.R. Zendesk).

Cannot say how amazing that sounds…..just mind blowing.
The release slider is a superb addition.
I genuinely think it is now possible to embark on symphonic compositions without having to down tools through lack of an expressive medium.
This will be an essential purchase.

Just wanted to say that I am absolutely in love with Mural Strings Vol.1 – I have been playing with the spiccato articulations for the past 2 hours and this is by far the most expressive short articulation I have ever used in a string library, so a very happy customer in here.
Thanks again guys, and congratulations for the release!!

Bravo Spitfire – this thing kicks some serious arse
– Wilx (V.I.C)

Congratulation Spitfire team, Mural sounds really good!!
– Max Tofone/ Massimo (V.I.C)

Well done SF. Your Flauts are to die for. Still only using just the main mics too. Much more to check out so back to playing..

Having just recently purchased Berlin Strings and owning HS I was a little scared of buyers remorse…thats a negative. I am a sucker for your sound!
– ETMuz (V.I.C)
———————————————————————————————-
Just tried it out today
I am extremely happy!
The words that come to mind are Lush and beautiful
Spitfire would it be possible to have a separate control on the main page to tighten up the shorts?
Also a bit more control over attack of the legato

Two thumbs!! looking forward to seeing what is planed for volume 2
– Eclipse (V.I.C)

Great sound Spitfire team… This is all about “depth”!!

I hate you guys for a dent in my wallet, although I had decided that I wouldn’t buy another library having spent money on Berlin Strings. Mural is a total no brainer. I wish you guys sort out the VAT thing (Maybe a subsidiary or reseller in the US?), very painful for European wallets

Quick question – would there be a new future discount voucher provided along with the purchase of Mural, having used previous voucher to buy Mural?
– Daryl (V.I.C)
———————————————————————————————-
Spitfire, you guys just broke the internet with that one! Holy Moly!

So much for all the debating on CineStrings vs Berlin Strings. I’ve officially abandoned the idea of starting a Teldex template, I’ve invested so much money in Spitfire libraries that completing this template would just be fantastic!! (Also, Andy Blaney’s demo for the new Flute Consort helped seal the deal there)
I also LOVE that Mural is going to have basic arts in all sections in vol 1. as opposed to the more modular approach of Sable.
– Prodigalson (V.I.C)

Just got back from work. Mural – downloaded. Just starting to play. 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.

Definitive Range Banner

Recorded by Jake Jackson at Lyndhurst Hall – Air Studios, on one of the finest scoring stages in the world, through an array of priceless vintage microphones via Neve “Montserrat” pre-amps, to a beautifully serviced Studer 2” tape machine and then into digital at 96k via the best Prism AD converters: this is an unparalleled signal chain. Spitfire’s definitive range endeavours to offer the world a one-stop shop for classic and esoteric instruments played by the greats. As all these instruments are recorded in situ, in the same room, they’re designed to lock together sonically whether it be some timpani from the percussion range coupled with your Sable libraries. Or indeed a more curious band made up of the HG20, a plucked piano and a harp, it is designed to sound like they’re together in the same room. We provide a series of fantastic mixing options that allow you to dry stuff up or make it more ambient should you so wish, whilst preserving the acoustic integrity and perspective of a slavishly recalled microphone set up and room configuration. The instruments are all deep sampled but designed to play easily out-of-the-box, with easy integration into larger arrangements and templates without risk of demanding too much from your system resources.

….. FOR FILM, TV, TRAILERS AND GAMES.

Christian has taken some time out of his busy schedule to try and (loosely) recreate his demo ‘Dawn Z’ (for the newly released HZ01 epic percussion library) in this video tutorial walkthrough to demonstrate how he would approach drum arrangements of this type.

Here’s the original piece:

Enjoy!
