Sold separately: $1797
To create the greatest film scores in the world, you need to think outside the box. We collaborated with Hans Zimmer, the Godfather of film scoring, to produce these three spectacular innovations; the thunderous Hans Zimmer Strings, featuring a 344 piece orchestra recorded at the world-famous AIR Studios; Hans Zimmer Piano, the ultimate piano library; and finally Hans Zimmer Percussion Professional, the ultimate drum sample library for cinematic percussion.
To create the greatest film scores in the world, you need to think outside the box. Hans Zimmer, the Godfather of Orchestral Sampling, came to Spitfire to produce this spectacular innovation; 344 players, AIR Studios… Only technology can allow 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 available as a plugin developed primarily for composers, by composers. Take the dynamic of your scores to levels you’d 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 the 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 Hans Zimmer in his blockbuster scores, we’ve drawn upon his years of creativity and studio experimentation to compile all you’ll need to get started in epic drum composition. From tombeks to taikos, playing from whisper quiet to thunderously loud, we’ve worked alongside his GRAMMY Award-winning team (including engineer Geoff Foster) to capture the highest quality recordings in the same studio with the same players, all mixed and produced by the man himself. This professional edition also includes additional mixes by producer-composer-engineer royalty: Junkie XL, Geoff Foster, Alan Meyerson and Steve Lipson, including CPU-friendly stereo mixes and 10 individual microphone positions.
