Spitfire Audio Labs - Free virtual instruments

Let's all become something.


The Spitfire Audio LABS programme is an infinite series of software instruments, free and easy to use; made by musicians in London for anyone, anywhere. We're planning to release one every month, as well as a bimonthly creative compendium, The Notebook. And in case you missed it, all for FREE.

Electric Piano

Neutral Planet — Fiifi Mills

LABS Electric Piano

This legendary vintage electric piano is set to become a firm favourite for all. Recorded and engineered in-house by our very own Henry Cornish in April 2018, it has become hugely popular at Spitfire HQ.


Amplified Cello Quartet

Asphyxia — Louis Rugg

LABS Amplified Cello Quartet

LABS Amplified Cello Quartet was recorded by our founder Christian Henson and engineer Harry Wilson in 2017, here at Spitfire HQ. Christian played with the sound during the live recordings using effects pedals, with the celli in one room and the amps in another. The amps were driven incredibly hard, allowing you to turn your strings up to 11!



Kickback — Louis Rugg

LABS Drums

Recorded at Spitfire HQ in 2012 using top-of-the-range mics, these drums showcase the talents of drummer Oliver Waton and engineer Stanley Gabriel. Play and program an awesome piece of kit — ba dum tss!



Lights - Oliver Patrice Weder

LABS Strings

Fourteen of London's best string players, recorded at Spitfire HQ by wise-beyond-his-years Harry Wilson. This ensemble was captured using a wide range of microphones including a vintage BBC AXB1. It's awesome.


Soft Piano

Our Time - Homay Schmitz

LABS Soft Piano

Recorded at Air Edel Studios, this sound has become a favourite of music makers across the globe. The soft tone is achieved by placing a thin strip of felt between the hammers and the strings.
