Enter the room most composers can only dream of: Abbey Road’s Studio One. Considered one of the finest acoustical spaces in the world, Studio One’s history has an indelible connection with the scores recorded there, providing emotion, mood, and magic for many of the most renowned and successful films ever made. Such classics as Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Avengers: Endgame — all were recorded in Studio One. With its rich tonality, deep low end, and famed reverb, Studio One’s sound is widescreen and epic. Truly, it is the iconic sound of cinema.
At Spitfire Audio, our approach is to always record sample libraries in the same way that film scores are recorded, and Sparkling Woodwinds is no exception.
