To create the greatest film scores in the world, you need to think outside the box. We teamed up with legendary composer Hans Zimmer (Dunkirk, The Dark Knight, Interstellar), to produce this spectacular innovation: 344 players performing an unconventional range of playing techniques in Lyndhurst Hall at London's world-famous AIR Studios. With up to 26 mic positions, only technology allows you to play an ensemble this big — from thundering basslines to glass-like high strings, this is symphonic strings maximised.
With the help of design and user experience agency UsTwo (Monument Valley, DICE), Hans Zimmer Strings is presented in our award-winning dedicated plugin — developed primarily for composers, by composers. Take the dynamic of your scores to levels you’ve never imagined, with our most ambitious library yet.
In his fourth collaboration with Spitfire Audio, legendary Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer presents the ultimate piano library. A personal favourite of Hans himself, this beautiful instrument bursting with life, depth, and character is the in-house grand piano at Lyndhurst Hall at AIR Studios, one of the best scoring stages in the world. Expertly recorded by Hans' renowned engineers and the award-winning Spitfire team, this library embodies what Hans described as a 'once-in-a-lifetime' opportunity to create a world-class piano writing tool for discerning composers the world over.
Spitfire Audio joins forces with the biggest name in film scoring to produce the ultimate drum sample library for cinematic percussion. Featuring the ensembles and solo instruments used by Oscar-winning Hans Zimmer in his blockbuster scores, we've drawn on his years of creativity and studio experimentation to give you all you need to create epic drum composition. From tombeks to taikos, playing from whisperingly quiet to thunderously loud, we’ve worked with Hans' Grammy award-winning team to capture the highest quality recordings, featuring the same players in Lyndhurst Hall at AIR Studios, London, where Hans records his biggest scores, all mixed and produced by the man himself.
The Professional edition also includes additional mixes by producer royalty Junkie XL, Geoff Foster, Alan Meyerson and Steve Lipson, including CPU-friendly stereo mixes and 10 individual microphone positions.
