  • The iconic sound of cinema

    Create soaring and regal melodies with this set of masterful performances captured in Abbey Road’s iconic Studio One.

    Performed by London’s first-call session players, Grand Brass offers you exceptional performances of horns and tuba, as well as the idiomatic pairing of horns and cellos, beautifully orchestrated to allow you to create moving, stately, and momentous melodic lines. This diverse collection of techniques, including shorts, powerful longs, purposeful swells, and Spitfire Audio’s new easy-to-use legato patches, are essential for creating heroic drama and distinctive themes, all recorded in the iconic space of Studio One.

    Grand Brass is available to purchase as a stand-alone library or as a brilliant addition to Abbey Road One: Orchestral Foundations. You can also purchase this as part of Abbey Road One: The Collection and save 30%.

    Grand Brass was recorded in the same room using the same EMI TG desk heard on John Williams’ classic scores. It’s instantly playable and very inspiring to use, adding yet more depth to the Abbey Road One orchestral arsenal.

    Do I need to own Abbey Road One Orchestral Foundations to buy this library?

    No, this library will act as a stand alone library, opening up inside the Abbey Road One plug-in. But if you were to own Abbey Road One Orchestral Foundations, it will work seamlessly together.

    How does your dedicated plug-in work?

    Our dedicated plug-in libraries work as standalone instruments in your daw, meaning that no serial number is provided and the authorisation process happens during your download. We provide an au, vst2, vst3 and an aax, so as long as your chosen daw supports one of those plug-in formats, you’re good to go. this library is also nks compatible.

    I own Orchestral Foundations, how do I install a selection?

    From our Spitfire Audio App, you install the selections into your pre existing Spitfire Audio - Abbey Road One folder. For those that do not own orchestral foundations, a selection is installed to your samples drive like any other product. Should you then install Orchestral Foundations or another selection later, these get installed to your now pre existing Spitfire Audio - Abbey Road ONE folder.
