Frequently Asked Questions

What’s IN Spitfire Symphonic Brass?

This library combines all of our existing “British Modular Library” range brass libraries: BML Horns, BML Trumpet Corps, BML Bones and BML Low Brass plus the epic BML Trumpet Phalanx, BML Bones Phalanx and BML Horns Phalanx.

What’s in Spitfire Symphonic Brass Professional

Symphonic Brass Professional adds to the core version of SSB, adding alternative (ALT) selections of Close Ribbon (Cr), Stereo Pair (St) and Gallery (G) signals, as well as the inclusion of Outrigger signals to the common CTA, creating CTAO for the ‘classic’ Spitfire setup. On top of this we offer the Fine (F), Medium (M) and Broad (B) stereo mixes, mixed by Jake Jackson, for instant great sounding mixes, with low CPU/RAM usage. This expansion contains over 173GB of additional content to help you make the most of Spitfire Symphonic Brass.

Further detail on the extended array of signals is provided here.

WHY GO PRO?

The Professional version gives you a higher degree of control and nuance demanded by professional composers of modern film and TV scoring. Allowing you the ultimate control of width, space and detail when composing.

I OWN CORE, HOW MUCH SPACE DO I NEED TO INSTALL THE PROFESSIONAL CONTENT?

You will need ~346GB of free space to install the professional content.

WHAT IF I ALREADY OWN CORE AND THE LEGACY EXPANSION? 

Great! This means you already own Spitfire Symphonic Brass Professional, and will have received a free update to each part of the library as a result. 

WHAT IF I ALREADY OWN THE CORE VERSION? 

You will be eligible for the Spitfire Symphonic Brass Professional crossgrade. Simply add Spitfire Symphonic Brass Professional to your cart, which will intelligently calculate your crossgrade price.

WHAT IF I OWN SOME OF THE OLDER BML LIBRARIES?

There is no direct cross grade path from our BML libraries to SSO, so in almost all cases** the cheapest way to buy into the Collection is to first upgrade to the relevant Symphonic library then upgrade to SSO (owners of Mural Volume 1 for instance, should upgrade to Spitfire Symphonic Strings, owners of BML Reeds should go via Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds).

** Because of the discounting scheme on the SSO Collection, there are a very few scenarios where you would be better off to go directly to buying SSO without upgrading first. 

Here are the rules.

  • If you own one single BML brass library which is either BML Horns, or one of the three Phalanx Libraries (Horns Phalanx, Trumpet Phalanx, Bone Phalanx), buy SSO directly. This is only if you own one of them. If you own more than one of these, upgrade to Spitfire Symphonic Brass first, then SSO.

  • For any other combination of BML libraries you already own, you should always upgrade to the relevant Symphonic library first and only then upgrade to SSO to obtain the best price.
