Spitfire Audio was founded by two award-winning composers: Christian Henson and Paul Thomson. Born out of their shared dissatisfaction with sample libraries, they pooled resources to record their own at the legendary AIR Studios in London. Fast forward ten years and Spitfire sounds are used by the biggest names in composition, appearing on everything from Doctor Who to Dunkirk.
To help you realise your film scoring ambitions, we have put together three selections of our most popular products. Recorded just like film scores – using the same studios, musicians and engineers – these libraries provide a truly cinematic sound and complement one another perfectly.
At the heart of Spitfire Scoring Bundles is Albion ONE – our most popular library. It features a 109-piece orchestra recorded at AIR Studios (Interstellar, Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings) and played by musicians who worked on Spectre, The Dark Knight and Star Wars. This is accompanied by thunderous cinematic percussion, beautiful pads, warped loops and an enormous steam synthesiser. An industry standard tool, Albion ONE is ideal for first-timers and established composers alike – no matter your level of orchestral knowledge.
Spitfire Solo Strings is the perfect accompaniment to the cinematic power of Albion ONE. These libraries are used together more often than any other pair of Spitfire products. Spitfire Solo Strings enables you to add nuance, depth and detail to your compositions, as well as breathtaking levels of realism. Strings are at the heart of almost every cinematic score, and you will use them in the majority of your scoring adventures. Solo Strings gives you first-call virtuoso London players that will rise above the force of the Albion ONE orchestra. Both libraries are recorded in the same space, making these two a powerful sonic duo.
