We’ve decided to retire our professional woodwinds line, in its current modular form, to make way for...

What is Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds?

It’s a rationalisation of all our existing symphonic woodwind libraries plus MASSES of new content, creating a new, simpler and more fully featured all-in-one Symphonic Woodwinds package. 

It includes piccolo, flute, alto flute, bass flute, oboe, cor anglais, clarinet, bass clarinet, contrabass clarinet, bassoon and contrabassoon, played by some of the world’s best musicians, recorded in The Hall at Air Studios, London.

What’s in it?

This new library combines all of our “British Modular Library” range woodwind libraries: BML Flute Consort, BML Additional Flutes, BML Reeds, BML Low Winds and BML Low Reeds.

Is that it?

No! In addition to all the existing content, we’ve added in a large number of additional articulations across most of the instruments (totalling an additional 30% more content). See the product page for the full list. It’s also an NKS Ready Kontakt Player library with a new, more intuitive GUI (with inline help).

What’s not in it?

The initial release contains only the close, tree and ambient mics. All the other microphone sets will be released next year as an expansion pack.

What if I already own some of those libraries?

We have cross grade pricing for any combination of the existing libraries you already own. Simply put the new library into your basket, and once you’re logged in, the cart will calculate the price you should pay based on what you already own.

What if I already own all of those libraries?

You’ll receive a copy of Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds, for free, on the day of release. You’ll also receive the expansion pack for free later in the year on the day of release.

Do I have to download and reinstall the components I already have?

Yes. This is a completely new encoded library, so you can’t use any of your existing sample content.

What costs more?

We have calculated the fire sale prices to be the same as if you bought the new library during its launch promotion period and bought the expansion pack when it is released next year. So if you don’t need the extra microphones, it will be cheaper to wait for the new library. If you want all the mics, the choice is cost neutral (and if you do buy ALL the existing libraries, you’ll receive the new library for free on the day of release).
