Studio Orchestra is a collection of world-class strings, brass, and woodwinds, exhaustively sampled at AIR Studio One and engineered by Simon Rhodes. A microphone magician with multiple Grammy awards to his name, and a senior engineer at Abbey Road Studios, he has worked at the highest level in film score recording, having been James Horner’s go-to engineer for 18 years. Blockbuster movies such as Avatar, Skyfall and Spectre have all had the Rhodes treatment.
Each library in the Studio collection comes in two versions: Core and Professional. Core takes you straight to the music, with all the essential instruments, including soloists and groups, the Tree mic position and the full complement of articulations. Professional offers you all of this and more, extending the family of instruments and microphone choices.
The Kontakt interface is clear and intuitive: it will quickly show you the essentials of your sound, and with a few clicks, will open up to full customisation. With the versatility we have engineered into this library, Spitfire Studio Orchestra is usable in the widest range of musical settings, and is designed to complement the more reverberant sound of our Symphonic libraries. Whether you are just beginning your orchestral explorations, or are an experienced professional composer, you will find all the parameters you need right under your fingertips.
Spitfire Studio Strings marks the first release of a vital all-new Spitfire Orchestra range. Our ambition was to create an incredibly versatile pro-end dry stage sample library. By choosing the crisp and vibrant setting of AIR Studio One, a smaller, more controllable space than the opulent Lyndhurst Hall, we offer our fellow composers a string library with depth, detail and focus all at once. One that will work on anything from passionate period dramas to modern Scandi noir. It’s a fit for quirky indie and crisp pop, but can also tackle epic film and game scores.
Spitfire Studio Brass is the second release in our vital all-new Spitfire Studio Orchestra range. Two years in the making, our ambition was to create an incredibly versatile pro-end dry stage sample library. By choosing the crisp and vibrant setting of AIR Studio One — a smaller, more controllable space than the opulent Lyndhurst Hall — we offer our fellow composers a brass library with depth, detail, and awesome punch. Epic power is on tap, with the widest emotional range of performance, but it comes with the grace and pinpoint detail of the dry stage, expertly recorded by Grammy award-winning engineer Simon Rhodes. Choose solo, duet, or section performances, and realise the detail of your music with swells, flutter tongues, and staccatissimo stabs, as well as traditional articulations.
Spitfire Studio Woodwinds is the third and final release in our vital Spitfire Studio Orchestra range. Our ambition was to create an incredibly versatile pro-end dry stage sample library, and by choosing the crisp and vibrant setting of AIR Studio One – a smaller, more controllable space than the opulent Lyndhurst Hall – we offer our fellow composers a woodwind library that captures every grain in depth and detail.
As with our other Studio libraries, we offer you a wide range of instruments from the section – from the guttural depths of the bassoon to the gleaming sounds of the piccolo. With solo or section performances, choose from an abundant range of articulations, and realise the detail of your music with rips, key noise FX, swells, and sforzandi. Boasting the widest emotional range of performance in pin-sharp detail, Spitfire Studio Woodwinds will breathe new life in to your orchestra.
