INTRODUCTION

A TRUE PIONEER AND FOUNDING MEMBER OF TRAILBLAZING ACTS THE HUMAN LEAGUE AND HEAVEN 17 PRODUCES AN EXCLUSIVE SELECTION OF CLASSIC ANALOGUE SYNTH AND DRUM SOUNDS FROM HIS COLLECTION OF RAREFIED ELECTRONIC DELIGHTS.

With over 270 delectable presets, some with up to 5 distinctly different mixable signal paths giving a total library size of 13.5 GB in compressed downloadable data from 25.1 GB of WAV a total of 11016 samples! This library is broad selection of synth and drums sounds that chart the very beginnings of UK electronica and synthesizer pop which were to influence heavily the burgeoning "electro" subset of the NY hip hop scene led by the likes of Afrika Bambaataa in the late seventies and early eighties. With a huge selection of pads, leads, pops, drums, fx, amazing tempo locked sequences and curios designed by hand, by the man himself plus a comprehensive selection of warped versions, sound designed by top award winning composers and producers. All presented in "super mono" to give you a selection of channels processed via vintage class-a analogue outboard processing.

ABOUT MARTYN

MW Mug Shot
Martyn Ware has been an essential and avid contributor to electro-pop music since the late 1970’s, and is partly responsible for such hit records as ‘Being Boiled’ and ‘Temptation’. As well as being a founding member of British Electric Foundation, The Human League and Heaven 17. Martyn has worked with a myriad of talent including Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Erasure, Marc Almond, Mavis Stapes and Terence Trent D’Arby. As a record producer and artist, Martyn has featured on recordings totalling over 50 million sales worldwide. In 2001, Martyn joined forces with Vince Clarke to found Illustrious Company, and together they continue to combine their unique three-dimensional sound technology to collaborate with an array of artists, corporate clients and clientele within the performing arts industry.
Although a proud Sheffield native, Martyn now lives and works in London, and can be found acting as Visiting Professor for Queen Mary Collage at the University of London when not working away in his studio based, like us, at Tileyard.
We're delighted that Martyn has agreed to create a totally bespoke selection of composer and producer tools from a mind that has created so much innovation and sonic ingenuity.

FEATURES

Roland100
The Roland System 100 is often said to be the last great synth with the last great pair of oscillators. Hand made only a few units were sold so they're incredibly hard to come by. This particular unit was gifted to Martyn by Vince Clarke in return for services rendered producing an Erasure album. It plays host to Martyn's staggering programming prowess and allows us to revisit all those great Human League and Heaven 17 sounds. Alongside, synths, leads, pops, and basses are some great sequences which are worth the price of admission alone!
Jupiter8
Here we enjoy hearing how Martyn's techniques evolved alongside growing feature-sets of later incarnations of Roland keyboards. An anthology of classic custom sounds made by the master!
Korg700
Martyn has also plumbed his old faithful for some great drum sounds and curiosities. The Korg 700 has a sound all of it's very own and casts our mind back to the dawning of a new age for pop in the UK.
Korg700
In addition to these wonderful "originals" from Martyn the award winning Spitfire team has been at it again morphing and mangling the sounds to create haunting, biting and enormous new creations inspired by Martyn's work. Giving you a truly inspiring and comprehensive set of synthesizer tools.

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 GUI Image
MERCURY SYNTH
The mercury synth is the front end for all of our synth based, steam punked, sound designed and warped material our 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.

SUPER MONO

Super Mono Image
All the synthesizers sampled within N.I.C. are monophonic. But we have taken pains to duplicate this mono signal and send through a number of different interesting signal chains using Class-A vintage outboard processing:
Here's a brief description of the different signal paths we explored:
• M - Mic - Direct and close from the System 100 speakers.
• A - Amped - Into a fine Marshall amplifier so it just "sits".
• Ch - Chorus - We had a Roland Dimension D shipped from Japan just for this library! We feel it's the best way to stereoficate an analogue synth!
• Sp - Spring - A Reverb return from a vintage Telefunken Spring unit.
• DI - Direct Inject - Recorded via the finest NEVE line amps direct from the output of the keyboard. Every instrument loads with this activated in the first instance.
* Some of the warped presets are delivered in a single Stereo iteration with a second mic designed for surround use.

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."
