Ollie Waton Drums Image

Ollie Waton Drums

Christian has a new live room and wanted to test it out for drums.
Spitfire welcomes showcasing the talents of the young up-and-coming Ollie Waton (www.olliewaton.com) and also Stanley Gabriel (www.stanleygabriel.com) who did such an amazing job of recording and mixing. Considering this is a freebie, it’s an amazingly versatile kit, and we think it just sounds brilliant. It has three mic positions, Close, Overheads, and Squash which as far as we wanted to go so it was easy on any system and enables users to play and program a pre-mixed kit. There’s up to 11 round robins, 4 dynamic layers on each drum. Two snares, two rim shots, snare and rimshot flams, and choke releases for the cymbals.

HAMSTER CAGE

“The wheel’s spinning but the hamster’s dead” Christian rarely puts anything onto the tip without first giving it the Spitfire once over. Featured in many of his film scores over the last decade this makes for a curious cross between a plucked and malleted instrument. The hamster died in 1998, but the cage lives on! Just to clarify, this is actually a hamster cage, not to be confused with a competitor’s similarly named product!

SEEK WAH

Not many people know that alongside his two score and more film scores Christian also dabbled in a bit of telly. Alongside killing Poirot off in 2014 CH’s career stems back to the early naughties with skeletons in his closet that include quite a lot of porn and his first “proper gig” the cult series “Two Pints Of Lager & A Packet Of Crisps”. Another clacking skeleton in his portfolio is the titles music for “Top Gear”. “Something I did and forgot about, I didn’t write the theme, just did a new version so sometimes I’d switch on the telly and go ‘oh, so they’re still using it’. I had no idea how massive Top Gear had become until the problems they ran into recently publicised that there’s several hundred million viewers worldwide!!”. Christian has kindly donated the iconic sample instrument he used - featuring his favourite pedal the ZVEX Seek Wah - to the labs cause.

Scary Strings 2D Image

SCARY STRINGS

(Available in exchange for a minimum £2 donation PER MODULE to UNICEF)
Another contribution from Christian's private collection, his "scary strings" are very simply made up VIs of small ensemble of string players recorded at Air-Edel studios in London. "I needed to turn a lot of music around really quickly and a lot of it had to be really scary, I wanted something that moved under my fingers so I could hold notes and chords for an age without it looping. These scary strings are the nuts for that. Whilst using them (a lot) over the last couple of years I also realised that playing more lyrical stuff just with the front end gives you a haunting, almost child-like fragility, a very unique and special sound". Christian has prepared three presets the standard Scary, the scary with a bit of "cool" when you move the mod wheel up and a time stretched version for an even more disturbing hyper-real effect.

Peel Guitar 2D Image

PEEL GUITAR

From Christian's private collection, a very simple but effective workhorse guitar. "I've never managed to better the quality of this little ditty, with 3 dynamic layers, no round robins it has sat on countless scores of mine. I get live players like Leo Abrahams to replace it but directors love the quality of sound so much that I rarely get rid of it altogether! It's a Fender Telecastor through a vintage 15w Fender Tweed amp played with just a hint of vibrato. It's got what I would call that totally English sound to it. With judicious use of tremolo and distortion/ amp plugs I have managed to make this sound - to a fairly convincing level - like Radiohead, Coldplay, Tom Waits, Nick Cave and U2!"

PLUCKED UPRIGHT

Not long after buying this beautiful hand made German upright piano, Christian set about to plucking it. This is a deep sampled multi mic set of samples from the piano that is used as Spitfire's seminal "Felt Piano". If you like this, you may want to try Spitfire's commercial "Plucked Piano" a grand in the hall at Air Studios, one of the finest scoring stages in the world!

TRUMPET FIDDLE

This is a real attic-special. Christian found this at Hobgoblins in London. I single stringed oddity with a small gramophone horn as it's resonator it was allegedly the instrument du jour for about six months sometime in the 1910's, but soon fell out of favour because, well because it sounded just so damned awful. It does however record well and has miraculously made it's way onto countless scores mainly because it is featured as part of the "Brunel Loops" in Spitfire's popular "Albion 1" library. Indeed we're sure we spotted it being used on Reznor's seminal score for "Girl With A Dragon Tattoo" but don't quote us on that!

CAJON

Quite literally translated; "box". Originating from Peru, this amazing instrument has infected latin music all over south America find it's way back to Europe via Flamenco pioneers like Paco De Lucia and finally into use in popular music in the UK by it's appeal as a great accompaniment for acoustic gigs and especially small promotional tours for rising stars. It sounds like a little drum-and-bass kit but it's easy to transport! It is played by slapping the main body of the front panel for a "kick" style sound. The slapping the top edges to resonate some ingenious snares inside the box, to create a "snare" type sound.

MINI HARP 2D IMAGE

MINI HARP

The final contribution for Labs 2014 from CH’s personal collection is his mini harp. Here’s what he had to say about the two VIs you get with this one package. “I love the sound of the harp, but like so many things it has a connotation, it puts you in a certain mood or place. I wanted to capture a more enigmatic account. So I bought a cheap small harp and played it badly myself concentrating only on the quietest level my fat fingers could play it. I love it on it’s own (with lots of reverb) and find it sits amazingly well with the proper Skaila Kanga harp that we built for a tracked sound. But my absolute fave is the trem harp, this for me is evocative of Gustavo Santaolalla or something Nick Cave would stick in one of his western scores.”

Brilliantly (because they often sound rubbish) recorded by Stanley Gabriel at our new purpose built silent studios in King’s Cross London. This is a professional contemporary Kalimba that (with the exception of one tine) has the rare quality (for the Kalimba) of being in tune! This was recorded damped and resonating, to get the latter articulation set simply hold down the sustain pedal.

(Available in exchange for a minimum £2 donation PER MODULE to UNICEF)
A small toy steel pan recorded and played with a selection of beaters by Sebastian Truman and Cicely Balston at our new purpose built silent studios in Kings Cross London. It doesn’t have the instantly identifiable sound of its larger cousin so can be used in a multitude of styles. Sounds great with delays and a big verb playing quick little phrases to punctuate and edge up prettier sound-scapes. Good poking out of our new Kitchenware range for
example.

Bell Tree

(Available in exchange for a minimum £2 donation PER MODULE to UNICEF)
Recorded by Sebastian Truman and Cicely Balston at our new purpose built silent studios in King’s Cross London. This bell tree was recorded primarily to replace Christian’s reliance on a recording of one gifted him by his brother of unknown origin (the sample, not the brother). Unlike the illicit sample CH has used for over a decade, this is a beautifully recorded instrument with two microphone perspectives (so you can produce a surround image) and a number of different articulations. These are spread across the keyboard and provide sweeps up and down of differing lengths plus a series of shimmers and tinkles. See you in another ten years for our 7.1 version!

Tangerines Cover Image

Tangerines

Well everyone loves a big bowl of Tangerines at Christmas.
Christian Henson has a fine collection of vintage analogue synths, including a Juno-6, JX3P, MiniMoog, SE1X, TB303, SH101, and his newly acquired MS20. In this small library Christian has created sounds suitable to recreate the magic of band Tangerine Dream. Christian’s love of this band stem from them sounding a bit like an electrified Steve Reich, and for “that” scene in Risky Business, which Christian saw for the first time at quite a poignant point in his personal development.

Bedlam Piano

(Available in exchange for a minimum £2 donation PER MODULE to UNICEF)
Christian Henson lives in a building designed to house doctors and nurses who worked at the infamous St Bethlem mental hospital. AKA Bedlam. It is now the home of the London Imperial War Museum. This is Christian’s family piano, an old 1970′s upright made in London. Christian has a large family so this piano is rarely in tune. “I always wanted a nicely out of tune piano sample but most VIs fall into 3 camps, pristine and in tune, out of tune and pub piano like, and a non-pristine piano pristinely tuned! I want something that will make me sound like Nick Cave or Warren Ellis” he said. So he monitored it’s detuning progress and one day out of the blue notified the Kings Cross team that “she’s baked”. Cicely Balston and Sebastian Truman decamped to Christian’s to sample this piano for all of our pleasure!

Fingered Dulcimer 2D Icon

Fingered Dulcimer

(Available in exchange for a minimum £2 donation PER MODULE to UNICEF)
One of the beautiful artistic aspects of sampling is “Hyper Sampling” whereby you design an instrument that simply couldn’t be played that way but with a sound that is totally true and organic. Anyone who can give us the latin for this, we’ll have it made into a sign above the door that reads: “If you’re meant to hit it, bow it, if you’re meant to bow it hammer it, if you’re meant to hammer it pluck it, and if you’re meant to pluck it, hit it”. Our beautiful fingered dulcimer played hauntingly with pads of fingers for a magical, less geographically associated instrument.

Desk Bells 2D Icons

Desk Bells

(Available in exchange for a minimum £2 donation PER MODULE to UNICEF)
A carefully manufactured array of ceramic desk or “service!” bells. Lovingly sampled here in our new purpose built dry space at Kings Cross by Cicely Balston and Sebastian Truman. The hammer mechanisms within each bell provide for a random pleasingly primitive or school room effect.

Hand Chimes 2D Icon

Hand Chimes

(Available in exchange for a minimum £2 donation PER MODULE to UNICEF)
Like the desk bells these also have a schoolish or primitive quality. Designed for school use they have a remarkably sonorous instrument. They imitate bell choirs where you have to flick your wrist to produce a tone, limiting each player to two notes. This VI recorded by Sam Bohn cuts down on personnel to recreate these bell choirs!

Hand Claps 2D Icon

Hand Claps

(Available in exchange for a minimum £2 donation PER MODULE to UNICEF)
Like with our Bell Tree range, this is a refresher set of hand claps so you can replace that tired old sample you nabbed off a CD laminated to a trade mag 8 years ago. Recorded from a number of different perspectives with different sized groups they’re deeply sampled with a number of dynamic layers up to 25 round robins and the all important finger snaps!

Crumhorn Cover Image

Crumhorn

PLEASE DON’T ASK FOR A REFUND!! This seemed like such a good idea at the time. Half a day in the hall at Air Studios, an array of expensive microphones and technicians. Paul Thomson handed over to Christian Henson to tackle recording this and left the studio. And then…. nameless, but the best player in the country… played…. and then… came the noise. Within two notes Christian turned to Jake Jackson (Spitfire’s chief engineer) and said “this is going to be a complete fucking waste of time, but this guy’s come a hundred miles to record this, mute the desk and I’ll get the beers in”. And there we were, watching a red faced man blow into total silence what will surely be known as the best recorded worst sample library in the world.

Indian Banjo Image

Indian Banjo

(Available in exchange for a minimum £2 donation PER MODULE to UNICEF)
This quirky little thing is a 24 stringed autoharp style instrument but with all 24 strings tuned to the same note! You strum the exposed strings over the sound hole with one hand and depress stops arranged in a piano pattern arranged up the neck to get different notes. This is part of Christian’s personal collection of curiosities and features heavily on the horror score for “Black Death”. We have done dozens of round robins with both a finger nail and finger flesh which are switchable via the UI or the associated keyswitches. It’s great for creepy stuff but also for Thomas Newman style strumming beds.

The Colonel Wurlitzer Image

The Colonel

(Available in exchange for a minimum £2 donation PER MODULE to UNICEF, SEE HERE)
Christian’s Wurlitzer piano, bought for £200 from a friend, it’s seen some action! Recorded with a bunch of round robins, release triggers and dynamic layers and a selection of mic settings. DI, acoustic (very creepy when played on it’s own as the speakers are broken so it’s just the sound of the keys and tines) plus a couple of bonus channels. Through Christian’s amp simulator, the fantastic Fractal Audio Systems Axe FX Ultra and the jewel in CH’s kit crown, Jimi Hendrix’s guitar line mixer, complete with the original valve from that time.

Soft Piano Image

Soft Piano

This is one of Christian and Paul’s favourite private patches, having become a workhorse within many of Henson’s film scores. It is especially proud in the haunting “Triangle”. It was produced as a means of reducing Paul & Christians reliance on the immensely popular Malmsjo Grand so has been recorded at one dynamic layer (pianissmo) with the practice mute engaged. But with an additional resonance pass with the sustain pedal on.

Dry Vibraphone Image

Dry Vibraphone

Recorded dry at Air-Edel for that controllable sound. CH finds it great to layer this against other sounds like Celestes or his Wurlitzer as you can hear HERE. By using a tremolo plug-in (the one bundled with Logic is excellent for this purpose) to imitate a trem’ motor for that traditional post-modern “lift music” sound. This is sampled diatonically at soft dynamic levels for that laid back lounge sound.

Charango Image

Charango

(Available in exchange for a minimum £2 donation PER MODULE to UNICEF)
The Charango is a small Andean stringed instrument of the lute family, 66cm long and made with the shell of the back of the armadillo. Christian says, “This may only be a small file, but this is the big one for me. I sampled this in my studio (excuse the sound of Soho in the background), with my brother some 6 years ago. We struck upon the idea of “let’s make every note sound totally different”. The end result is what inspired me to talk to Paul about making our own sample library. I can’t believe I’m giving this one away, it’s like watching your first-born head off to college. It’s been a great friend to me, but I guess it’s time I move on”. This has been recorded chromatically with 4 dynamic layers and quite a lot of noise in the background!

Hammered Dulcimer Image

Hammered Dulcimer

Recorded especially for this Christmas give-away by CH at Air-Edel studios for that dry, controllable sound. With two dynamic levels and 5 round robins per hit, plus a pass of tremolando with release triggers and some swipes and effects. These are all available in the same patch and can be keyswitched between A0 (hits), A#0 (trem), and B0 (fx). A quick tip, when switching back from tremolando to hits the release triggers don’t trigger so the tremolando stop dead. CH recommends re hitting the key when you want the trem note to end (with a bit of practice easy to do live, or just a quick pass in your matrix editor with a pencil!).

Iron Drum Image

Iron Drum

Recorded at Air-Edel studios specifically for the labs the Iron Drum is a heavy iron drum with 6 “resonators” that feels not unlike a chunky hand drum. It has a beautiful mellow tone that’s both familiar (like a nicely tuned steel drum) whilst being difficult to place exactly (or is it a vibraphone of some sort?). We have recorded it 4 ways, with a rubber beater muted and unmuted: 5 round robins, 2 dynamic layers, and with hand strikes both muted and unmuted again recorded with 5 round robins at a single soft dynamic layer. For the hand struck articulations we have a clever left hand thumb mute function that allows for the creation of complex rhythmic patterns. The file is 168MB to download exclusively free from this site with a minimum £2 donation to Unicef. There is a PDF manual enclosed in the download with instructions on use.
