    Lyndhurst Hall at AIR Studios, London. In the origin story of Spitfire Audio, this is where it all began. We return to complete what is the beating heart of our symphonic range—Spitfire Symphonic Brass Professional. Performed by London’s first-call brass players, captured in a room unlike any other, the sound is equally majestic and inspiring, warmly embracing the instruments in The Hall’s lush reverberation.

    The Professional edition brings a new level of customisation with a total of 10 signals, featuring 7 mic positions and 3 expertly engineered mixes by Jake Jackson (WandaVision, Emma, David Copperfield, It: Chapter 2). Recorded to tape using AIR’s unparalleled signal path and microphone selection, this library is bursting with an encyclopedic offering of techniques—the most of any Spitfire Audio library. Used by top names in film and TV music, this is an absolute workhorse that offers the ultimate level of choice and control.

    Symphonic Brass Professional adds to the Core version, with alternative (ALT) selections of Close Ribbon (Cr), Stereo Pair (St) and Gallery (G) signals, as well as the inclusion of Outrigger signals to the common CTA, creating CTAO for the ‘classic’ Spitfire setup. On top of this we offer the Fine (F), Medium (M) and Broad (B) stereo mixes, mixed by Jake Jackson, for instant great sounding mixes, with low CPU/RAM usage. This expansion contains over 173GB of additional content to help you make the most of Spitfire Symphonic Brass.

    Further detail on the extended array of signals is provided here.
