This year has been special. Our 2018 Core Collection brings together three of our finest, most essential libraries released this year. Spitfire Studio Strings was recorded at Air, Studio One, a drier library that appeals to composers and producers longing for control over their creativity, performed by some of London best session musicians and recorded by Grammy award-winning Simon Rhodes. Spitfire Solo Strings offers detailed and extensive collections of solo performances, including three differing styles of solo violinists, viola, cello and bass, as well as our most advanced total performance patch. British Drama Toolkit provides you with a new way of sketching and scoring music instantly, featuring strings and woodwinds expertly sampled, offering unique and instinctive playing possibilities.
Spitfire Studio Strings marks the first release of a vital all-new Spitfire Orchestra range. Our ambition was to create an incredibly versatile pro-end dry stage sample library. By choosing the crisp and vibrant setting of Air Studio One, a smaller, more controllable space than the opulent Lyndhurst Hall, we offer our fellow composers a string library with depth, detail and focus all at once. One that will work on anything from passionate period dramas to modern Scandi noir. It’s a fit for quirky indie and crisp pop, but can also tackle epic film and game scores.
Sometimes you need the intimacy and detail of a single voice to rise above the force of an orchestra. Reach for Spitfire Solo Strings – the all-new accompaniment to our Symphonic and Chamber ranges, featuring exceptional first-call London virtuosos.
Solo Strings is designed to stand out, but also to fit in: this entirely new library sits perfectly alongside the Spitfire orchestral ranges, utilising the same location, peerless signal chain, mic positions and range of articulations that make up the DNA of our high quality orchestral packages. Single players in the acoustic luxury of the hall at Air Lyndhurst, captured on rich sounding 2” tape.
We can’t write your music for you, but we can help you find your voice. The outstanding British Drama Toolkit provides the most instinctive, immediate and intense connection to the heart of your composition. Created in collaboration with composer Samuel Sim, it features an ensemble dedicated to the emotionally potent sound he is lauded for – but also presents a unique way of interacting with the players, which sets this instrument apart from anything we have created to date. This is not just a group that plays your music; it helps you compose it.
