Overview



World-class woodwinds, brass, and strings exhaustively sampled by an award-winning team in Lyndhurst Hall at AIR Studios—undeniably a room where blockbusters are born. Spitfire Symphony Orchestra Professional collects the latest Professional libraries for Spitfire Symphonic Strings, Spitfire Symphonic Brass, and Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds, alongside Masse, offering a singular choice for those writing for TV, film, and game music.


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


From the root level of our instruments folders, you’ll immediately see a unified and simple approach. Offering up a pre-curated set of playing styles (or articulations) in a way that is easy to access and simple to execute with relatively little orchestral programming experience. You’ll see, as you dig deeper into more adventurous areas of the library, that it will grow with your experience and personal development as an electronic orchestrator.


Each library has a huge selection of playing styles, with numerous dynamic layers, release triggers, round robins, true and performance legatos. With unique and comprehensive playing styles, different section sizes (solo, a2, and a6 where appropriate) for the brass and woodwinds, alongside an enormous heart of 60 strings players upfront, this band of over 100 players is complimented by some super exclusive orchestration tools for no-nonsense composition at the coalface by the name of Masse, only available to owners of SSO and SSO Professional.



What’s included?

Masse

A set of super-exclusive ready-built orchestral patches for composers needing to hit that deadline. Designed by composers for composers, and featuring all three sections of our symphonic orchestral range — Brass, Woodwinds & Strings — these patches have been carefully re-orchestrated, re-mixed and re-baked into a series of awe-inspiring, straight-out-of-the-box tools, only available as part of the Spitfire Symphony Orchestra Collection. Some of the ensembles within contain forces of over 300 players, designed for composers looking to work quickly.

Background

If there is any single product that encompasses the very core concept of Spitfire Audio it is Spitfire Symphony Orchestra, 10 years in design, 5 years in the making—a new chapter in our history.


SSO Professional is the pinnacle of Spitfire’s achievements over the last decade—after over 50 award-winning orchestral products, it’s an evolution of technique; a codification of our craft. Working closely with A-list composers on AAA productions, and as working composers ourselves, at the coalface. SSO Professional is a culmination of our experience, an encyclopaedia of learning, a bible of knowledge, the Death Star of orchestral packages, one ring to bind us!


Originally starting out as the BML (British Modular Library) and released in volumes over the last 4 years, the key objective was interconnectivity—that each part of the library would lock in with the other. So alongside the ultra-detailed level of samples, articulations, dynamic layers, and round robins gathered under the enormous structure of the Hall at Air Studios, we also placed each player in situ and mixed 4 years of recordings so that every component of the band has the correct position in the sonic field. This isn’t just about panning left to right, if you want someone to sound like they’re behind the violas, and not sitting on their laps, you’ve got to place them there! Over the last half-decade, we have learned many lessons. We applied techniques learned from brass recording to our woodwinds sessions, and lessons learned had us return to the Hall to update some of our string recordings. By unifying this enormous project into a single collection, we have pooled the acres of knowledge earned into a single experience.


Because of this, SSO Professional presents a singular orchestral concept like no other. A long-term project that has been rationalised from its modular form into a new singular one readying it for future sampling endeavours. For whilst SSO Professional contains every possible classic nuance, we, as working composers, have also curated playing styles that are very much part of the zeitgeist; something we look forward to writing with in the future.
