Having inspired a whole generation of composers and producers, our Albion range is the DNA that encapsulates the true spirit of Spitfire, giving you everything you need to create film music, in one box. The most famous of these is Albion ONE — the ultimate toolkit for creating epic, blockbuster scores. But small can be just as powerful...
Albion NEO is a modern composer's dream — intimate, expressive sounds and textures, from organic, to hybrid, to electronic — instantly playable and malleable in our interactive, award-winning interfaces, specifically designed to spark new ideas, or bring your existing ideas to life. At its core is the NEO Orchestra, made up of super intimate, detailed chamber orchestra performances, with two divisi strings sections and a specially orchestrated chorus of woodwinds and brass. These recordings have been taken to new dimensions by our award-winning engineers to create Segla Textures: evolving orchestral textures presented in our eDNA interface — a groundbreaking synthesiser engine, giving you the opportunity to blend and mix these sounds to create new, hybrid orchestral textures. Stephenson’s Steam Band offers you combinations of vintage and modular synths as you’ve never heard them before, from Christian Henson’s personal collection, while Brunel Loops offers you 116 inspiring loops performed and curated by Spitfire’s very own talented band of musicians and engineers. Finally, what icy northern library would be complete without a pristine harmonium recorded in the cinematic splendour of The Hall at AIR Studios, both clean and warped.
An exciting cultural shift is happening in the constantly evolving landscape of film scoring and composition, with the emergence of a new wave of progressive musicians and composers producing more emotive, daring, hybrid works, out of London, Berlin, Reykjavik and beyond. With TV series and independent films now as big as blockbusters following the rise of streaming platforms, directors are looking for a new sound — a modern, hybrid sound that fits more subtle, intimate settings, redefining film scoring for the next generation. With our groundbreaking Swarms and Evos libraries, as well as collaborations with pioneering composers and visionaries from Ólafur Arnalds to The London Contemporary Orchestra, we have been part of this new wave, creating tools that push the boundaries of orchestral music and enable you to become a part of it. Albion NEO encapsulates this new and beautiful revolution, taking everything we have learnt in sampling over the last ten years and applying it to our hugely successful Albion blueprint.
Echoing the icy sound of Albion Tundra, but with a much smaller ensemble to give you more definition and intensity, this modern, comprehensive scoring library will provide you with endless inspiration for writing intimate sections, scoring independent films that need more focus, precision and detail, or adding beautiful, expressive sounds and textures to your production — all in one box.
At the heart of Albion NEO is the NEO Orchestra. Like all of our Albion libraries, it is designed to be instantly playable and easy to use, with all instruments in each section spread across the keyboard. Capturing stunning performances from a group of 36 world-class first-call session musicians playing 54 classic and unconventional articulations, it has been carefully crafted by award-winning orchestrator Ben Foskett and Spitfire Audio’s Harry Wilson, and recorded to tape by renowned engineer Jake Jackson in the world-famous Hall at AIR Studios, London. The emotion of each performance has been captured in intense detail, with five microphone positions and two specially curated mixes to choose from.
The Strings are split into two divisi sections, A (12) & B (11) — designed to complement each other and creating interesting combinations when played together. Discover both Longs and Shorts, plus the more unconventional, yearning Long Seagulls, Long 5th Bend Down/Up, and the icy Col Legno Tratto. We give you seven brass players, featuring Detuned, Long Pulses and Reblows, and 6 woodwind players, so soft that they sound like a breathy harmonium, featuring Long Octaves, Long Swells and Short Marcatos. We have also included pre-orchestrated Legato patches for all instruments, recorded full-band for instant playing ease.
23 Strings (Divisi):
Complementing the brass, we also give you a Harmonium, beautifully recorded in the Hall at AIR with two combinations of stops. The warped content folder, presented in our Mercury Synth engine, invites you to take this classic instrument to new dimensions.
