Overview

If you need inspiring, edgy and cool Violin chops, Warren is the man to go to. Spitfire are proud to showcase his talents here. An ideal partner for our Artisan Cello, This is the next chapter in our series of ultra cool virtual instruments recorded in our specially designed dry studio.

Film highlights include: Shakespeare in Love, Gladiator, James Bond 18-23, Harry Potter, The Lord of The Rings, Shrek, & the recent Batman and Almodovar Films. Pop music recording highlights include albums for Sting, Madonna, David Gilmour and Joni Mitchell’s epic ‘Both Sides Now’ arranged by Vince Mendoza.

Features

Adopting techniques we learned and perfected with the hugely successful "Andy Findon - Kit Bag", and as perfect companion to Chris Worsey's 'Artisan Cello', Spitfire leads on with the next instalment in our characterful instrument 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 vibrato" that gives you a realistic sounding presentation of the instrument out-of-the-box. Spitfire believe they have encapsulated the very soul that is Warren. A man who always brings a distinct element of edge to sessions we book him on. The zeitgeist violin style we're all looking for from searing emotion to heart breaking timidity.

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!
