BBC Symphony Orchestra has been expertly recorded by the Spitfire team at London’s famous Maida Vale Studios — home of the BBCSO, and host to The Beatles, Hendrix and Bowie. Our most expansive and ambitious project to date, this landmark library is the stuff of composing dreams: strings, brass, woodwind and percussion, all housed inside our award-winning standalone plugin.

Crafted and conducted by Grammy winner Eric Whitacre and showcasing his elite family of singers, this encyclopaedia of the voice will enrich your composition.

Presented in our versatile eDNA interface for instant playability and stimulation, we also give you 235 presets, designed to inspire and take your compositions to new places.

Cimbalom

An instrument popularised in Hungary, the cimbalom is a concert hammered dulcimer: a type of chordophone composed of a large, trapezoidal box with metal strings stretched across its top, played by striking two beaters against the strings. It is often used in spy intrigue and cold war thrillers, and also more recently on trip hop and pop tracks, for its mournful, unsettling tone. Played by renowned percussionist Greg Knowles and recorded in The Hall at AIR Studios, this will sit perfectly alongside our symphonic and chamber libraries.

Hans Zimmer Percussion Professional

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.

London Contemporary Orchestra Strings

Everything you need to make cutting-edge strings music. There is a shift in string writing that is becoming a global movement - based on innovative techniques and performance styles, it’s notoriously impossible to program with the tools currently available. We’ve partnered with the London Contemporary Orchestra, whose work with the likes of Radiohead and Jed Kurzel (Alien: Covenant) has contributed significantly to this shift, to create a string library that gives you access to this unique, experimental palette.

This library contains multi-sampled violin, viola, cello and bass sections, and has been recorded at our dry stage in London. With a host of dynamically controllable, never-before-sampled articulations, this rich set of diverse recordings are both playable and musical, and will transform your work.

London Contemporary Orchestra Textures

Our second collaborative venture with the internationally-acclaimed London Contemporary Orchestra took us to an awe-inspiring aircraft hangar for a recording process like no other. Together we have created a completely unique, never-before-sampled sound palette — a sophisticated collection of constantly evolving organic textures, formed by layering unexpected combinations of instruments. In applying the signature workshopping, performance styles and innovative techniques that have made the LCO so sought after, we have produced textures made up of indefinable, fascinating sounds. Our need for unparalleled acoustics led us to the most unconventional recording space in Spitfire’s eleven year sampling history — a cavernous hangar with a remarkably long reverb tail — adding incredible resonance to each note. Enhanced with our unique Evo Grid, we give you access to a cutting edge, inspiring collection of instantly playable, spellbinding textures which will add incredible depth and colour to your composition.

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.

North 7 Vintage Keys

In collaboration with North Seven Studios, we take four vintage keyboards and create a definitive musical rendering of each of these classic instruments. The finest maintained Electric Piano, Stage Piano, Electric Keyboard Bass & Electric Clavichord, played by session giant Sean Hargreaves and recorded by in-demand engineer Simon Changer.

Olafur Arnalds Chamber Evolutions

We join forces with BAFTA-winning Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds (Broadchurch, Kiasmos, Erased Tapes) to record an all-star ensemble performing his latest set of awe-inspiring evolutions. The 4,3,3,3,3 ensemble of British players (Violin I + II, Viola, Cello, Double Bass), led by long-term collaborator Viktor Orri Árnason, perform a range of fragile yet warm beautifully evolving phrases, recorded at the world famous Hall at AIR Studios, London. Using our Evo Grid technology, this library makes it easy to create sophisticated chamber strings music from the most simplistic of arrangements - just a few sustained notes is all you need to write inspiring dynamic textures. We also introduce Waves: a brand new innovation featuring notes that move along a wave-like dynamic arc, appearing from nothing, swelling, and then dying away again to nothing. These are accessible via our classic interface, in various styles and lengths.

Olafur Arnalds Composer Toolkit

Designed for composers, songwriters and producers, this is an intimate and deeply personal set of tools, curated by BAFTA winning composer Ólafur Arnalds, recorded at his studio in Reykjavik, Iceland. It centres around a characterful 'felted' grand piano, as well as a comprehensive set of inspiring sonic manipulations and progressive synth sounds, designed with the writer in mind.

Olafur Arnalds Evolutions

BAFTA-winning composer, multi-instrumentalist and electronic artist Ólafur Arnalds creates and curates a select quartet of unique string players performing to his very individualistic, inspiring and haunting aesthetic.

Oliver Patrice Weder — OPW

Step into the sound world of composer Oliver Patrice Weder with OPW, a beautifully intimate composing toolkit made up of a unique blend of melodic and percussive elements, giving you both organic, emotive instruments and shimmering electronic manipulations. Released in conjunction with the composer’s debut album of the same name, these 59 presets have been carefully recorded and curated by Oliver himself, specifically with composers and music makers in mind. Inspired by Oliver’s extensive travels, this distinctive collection will add character, texture and beauty to your scores. Featuring his own characterful prepared piano and a Wurlitzer 200A enhanced with effects pedals, discover atmospheric delays, tempo-synced electronics, dreamy pads, swells and textures. Add rhythm and movement with raw and treated percussive one shots and loops, or for a hint of nostalgia, choose the smoky, romantic tones of the flugelhorn.

Orbis

Sometimes a score needs more than an orchestra. Discover a new world of over 2500 extraordinary sounds, born out of organic performances, then treated and transported to epic new dimensions. Perfect for the progressively-minded composer, the sounds in this gargantuan creative compendium range from distorted loops to evolving textures and visceral one-shots; subsonic low-end to ethereal pads.



Ideal for producing rich-sounding, panoramic scores, Orbis reimagines the work of global sonic explorer David Fanshawe. Over 4 decades, Fanshawe travelled the globe to capture rare, beautiful performances from different cultures, previously unrecorded. Our sophisticated eDNA engine enables you to mix and manipulate these unique sounds to create an almost infinite set of creative possibilities.

Orchestral Grand Piano

At last, a grand piano that actually sounds like it's in the same room as your orchestra. Recorded in the world famous Hall at AIR Studios where we recorded our Symphonic and Chamber ranges, this exquisite Steinway Model D concert grand piano is designed to fit perfectly with our symphonic and chamber ranges. A classic, versatile instrument ideal as a concerto style lead, while also perfect for adding texture to your scores.

Orchestral Grand Piano requires Kontakt Full.

Orchestral Swarm

A new standard in orchestral sample library innovation, this will significantly expand your existing orchestral palette to include a huge variety of totally unique textures. As an alternative to using only straightforward long notes, this library draws upon the pointillistic effect of having multiple players perform short notes at random intervals to create an undulating swell of sound performed in real time, for inspiring results. Taking our Swarm approach, but adapted for the orchestra, it gives access to even greater detail by utilising the huge variety of articulations and playing styles of orchestral instruments, recorded at the famous British Grove Studios. It will give your compositions a liquid dynamic that dances alongside the picture. This library has been created exclusively in collaboration with Bleeding Fingers, and is featured in Blue Planet II and Hans Zimmer X Radiohead collaboration (ocean) bloom.

Percussion Swarm

Our first percussion library in three years, Percussion Swarm is a one-of-a-kind, encyclopaedic collection of beautiful cloud-like evolutions, pointillistic textures and single hits created from tuned and untuned percussion. This new world of dynamic sounds is a collaboration with three of the world’s most renowned percussionists, equipped with their enviably rare and extensive range of instruments. Following the same groundbreaking concept as our celebrated Swarm series, various techniques were performed simultaneously at random intervals in the inimitable resonance of The Hall at AIR Studios — resulting in undulating textures and swarm-like swells ranging in sparsity and density, with a staggering 16 signals to choose from. Percussion Swarm also offers you 30 warped pads and rhythmic textures, and 235 snapshots, presented in our Mercury Synth engine.



The introductory offer for Percussion Swarm is available until December 8th, 2019.

Felt Piano

If you like the LABS Soft Piano, you will love this hand-crafted German felt piano, played with the 'Celeste' pedal, by living jazz legend and Mercury Music Prize nominee Gwilym Simcock. The expertly selected practice pedal draws you to the very inner workings of the piano itself, but for delicate media composition or soft, intimate ballads, you'd be hard pressed to find something more beautiful.

Goldfinger Percussion

Multi-instrumentalist Inder Goldfinger welcomes us into his wonderful world with this anthology of Indian percussion instruments and esoteric sounds. Recorded deeply as both multi-samples, loops and grooves.
