What’s included?

Albion NEO

The next chapter in our bestselling Albion series. At the heart of this modern cinematic collection is a chamber-sized orchestra with an intimate string section, split by divisi across all articulations for incredible definition and expression — all captured in the unparalleled resonance of The Hall at AIR Studios.

These organic recordings have been taken to new dimensions to create an encyclopaedic range of hybrid synths, inspiring loops and textures, including over 300 curated presets to take your scores into the new decade, all in one instantly playable package. Where Albion ONE was for blockbusters, NEO is flexible across genres, designed to inspire a new wave of forward-thinking composers, artists and producers looking to create a closer, more emotive, hybrid sound – for TV, films and beyond.

Alternative Solo Strings

We’ve captured the performances of four of the most interesting and progressive string soloists in London to give you an accessible tool for detailed composition work. Featuring Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass, it features spirited longs and shorts, as well as a series of more unconventional articulations. Alternative Solo Strings offers you an instant, out-of-the-box collaborative experience, steeped in character.

Bernard Herrmann Composer Toolkit

Spitfire’s first dry scoring stage ensemble, inspired by the electric genius of Bernard Herrmann. Renowned for his groundbreaking scores including Citizen Kane, Psycho, Vertigo and Taxi Driver, his legacy continues to inspire the work of composers today.

We’ve worked exclusively with Bernard Herrmann’s estate to curate and assemble a unique set of studio orchestra ensembles, informed directly by the composer’s legendary orchestration aesthetic. Recorded at Studio One, AIR Studios by renowned engineer Simon Rhodes (Avatar, Spectre, Harry Potter, There Will Be Blood), we’ve captured players performing as Herrmann would have chosen – boisterous, lively and upfront, with patches featuring selected groups, unusual instrumental combinations, chords, effects and much more. Fire up this versatile toolkit for lively and distinctive scoring.
