  • The iconic sound of cinema

    Add brilliance and colour to your themes with this set of masterful performances captured in Abbey Road’s legendary Studio One.

    Featuring London’s first-call session players, Vibrant Reeds offers dazzling oboes and clarinets as well as the evocative pairing of oboes and cor anglais, a classic cinematic sound heard on countless scores. With essential and unique techniques such as longs, staccatos, mordents, and Spitfire’s new easy-to-use legato patches, you have everything you need to create scores ready for the big screen.

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

    The four flavours of mordents available in Vibrant Reeds are ridiculously good fun to play. These sound palettes could easily take creators into an unexpected and exciting musical direction that give tracks a fresh edge.

    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.
