To my mind, the secret of Spitfire is twofold: not only is everything beautifully recorded at AIR, but extreme restraint is displayed during post production not to clean up all the character from each sample. This really does add an extra dimension of realism. Now with the BML range, everyone can appreciate what all the fuss is about that we bespoke users have enjoyed since day one.

Spitfire sample libraries have transformed my ability to show directors and producers what they can expect when they get into the studios. I wish I'd had them when I did Harry Potter, it would have helped us in making decisions under pressure. Also they are very useful if there isn't a budget for an orchestra - I haven't heard anything to compare to their realism.
