Masse

Instant Symphony Orchestra

We’re proud to present a set of super-exclusive ready-built orchestral patches for composers working at the frontline needing to hit that deadline. Designed by composers for composers, and featuring all three choirs of our symphonic orchestral project (brass, woods, strings), these patches have been carefully re-orchestrated, re-mixed and re-baked into a series of awe-inspiring, straight out-of-the-box mega-tools which are only available as part of the Spitfire Symphony Orchestra collection. Some of the ensembles within contain forces of over 300 players, designed for no-nonsense composers looking to get the job done.

Overview

A meticulously designed mega-epic instant orchestra created from re-orchestrating the best of our Symphonic Symphony Orchestra. A truly exclusive toolset only available to owners of SSO, this is designed for pros working at their limits needing a super car to get them across the finish line. Arranged and orchestrated by our award-winning composer team as no-nonsense single patches (ie. for two-handed use) with multiple and transformative dynamics controlled via CC#1 (modulation wheel) with particular studious attention to their responsiveness and playability. The ultimate writing tool for composers who don’t hang around, don’t take any prisoners, and don’t get fazed by impossible scheduling demands. This will get the job done.

Background

By unifying our previously modular orchestral range and combining the three choirs - brass, woods, strings - into a single entity we've allowed for some very special treats. We have taken the last half year re-orchestrating, re-sequencing, and re-baking this amazing world class content into a super epic instant orchestral project. Not simply a matter of whacking some instruments together into a multi and auto sampling, this project has been forensically programmed by our award winning team of composers and engineers. Masse is a curated selection of commonly used combinations of choirs, to oft requested cocktails of instruments through to some highly experimental approaches in patch creation. We have been using these presets and patches in anger for months, tweaking their feel, their responsiveness, their bite, so you can plug-in play and create impressive orchestral mayhem effortlessly, whether you’re in your studio, or in a taxi on the way to the airport!

GUIs

The Overview Panel

Gives you a quick and easy way to access, view and load the different articulations, mic mixes and essential controller functions which you can then re-assign to suit your workflow.

General Controls Panel

A deeper but still simple UI panel that allows you to tweak the general settings. How many round robins you would like and how you would like them to behave. How would you like memory to be organised alongside pitch options and how velocity works.

The Ostinatum

Quite simply a little inspiration machine. Not quite an arpeggiator, not quite a sequencer. This intuitive device allows you to build up complex patterns that react to your playing to achieve wild systems results tantalising Zimmeresque tension beds or cheeky multi-tonguing effects!
