Overview

Where London 'cellists are concerned Chris is the vibe master general.
Spitfire brings cool to your solo instrument arsenal. Starting where Andy's Kitbag left off, this is the next chapter in our series of ultra inspirational virtual instruments recorded in our purpose built dry studios.

Background

Having graduated from London University (Royal Holloway) with a music degree, Chris continued his cello studies with Chris Bunting at the Royal College. He now works mainly as a session musician, recording on many film soundtracks including Batman - The Dark Knight, Skyfall, The Bourne trilogy, The Hobbit, Sherlock Holmes, the Narnia Chronicles, BBC's Dr Who, Inception and Into the Woods. As well as performing with many orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic, Chris works frequently with contemporary composers such as Joby Talbot, Max Richter and Andrew Skeet. He has also toured and recorded with numerous rock and pop acts including Sir Paul McCartney, Radiohead, Sam Smith, Florence and the Machine, Adele and The Divine Comedy. Chris is currently Musical Director for the band Elbow.

Features

Adopting techniques we learned and perfected with the hugely successful "Andy Findon - Kit Bag", Spitfire leads on with the next instalment in our vibe-range, our personality led, performance oriented sampled virtual instruments that are finding their way onto award winning recordings the world over.

Centred around a sophisticated virtual instrument with a host of "artisan" phrases, standard and additional techniques, including "performance legato" that gives you a realistic sounding presentation of the instrument out-of-the-box. Spitfire believe they have encapsulated the very soul that is Chris. A man who always brings a distinct element of cool to our sessions. The on-trend cello style we're all looking for from searing emotion to heart breaking timidity.

GUIs

The Overview Panel

This is the main interface for melodic instruments. Its default view displays all available playing techniques, has a simple microphone mixer and includes the main feature controllers.

General Controls Panel

This view allows further in-depth control of the instrument, showing all available signals and feature controllers, as well as the ability to purge techniques from memory to reduce system usage.

The Ostinatum

In this view you can add notes to a pattern sequencer, select which key it triggers on and then play for instant ostinato creation. It’s like an arpeggiator on a synthesiser.
