Overview

If you need inspiring, edgy and cool Violin chops, Warren is the man to go to. Spitfire are proud to showcase his talents here. An ideal partner for our Artisan Cello, This is the next chapter in our series of ultra cool virtual instruments recorded in our specially designed dry studio.

Background

Warren is one of London's most active session players, with more than 1500 Popular Songs and over 200 Major Film scores to his credit. Film highlights include: Shakespeare in Love, Gladiator, James Bond 18-23, Harry Potter, The Lord of The Rings, Shrek, & the recent Batman and Almodovar Films. Pop music recording highlights include albums for Sting, Madonna, David Gilmour and Joni Mitchell’s epic ‘Both Sides Now’ arranged by Vince Mendoza. Warren is also a regular Featured soloist on the BBC’s popular “Strictly Come Dancing” Television program.

Features

Adopting techniques we learned and perfected with the hugely successful "Andy Findon - Kit Bag", and as perfect companion to Chris Worsey's 'Artisan Cello', Spitfire leads on with the next instalment in our characterful instrument range, our personality led, performance oriented sampled virtual instruments that are finding their way onto award winning recordings the world over.

Centred around a sophisticated virtual instrument with a host of "artisan" phrases, standard and additional techniques, including "performance vibrato" that gives you a realistic sounding presentation of the instrument out-of-the-box. Spitfire believe they have encapsulated the very soul that is Warren. A man who always brings a distinct element of edge to sessions we book him on. The zeitgeist violin style we're all looking for from searing emotion to heart breaking timidity.

GUIs

The Overview Panel

This is the main interface for melodic instruments. Its default view displays all available playing techniques, has a simple microphone mixer and includes the main feature controllers.

General Controls Panel

This view allows further in-depth control of the instrument, showing all available signals and feature controllers, as well as the ability to purge techniques from memory to reduce system usage.

The Ostinatum

In this view you can add notes to a pattern sequencer, select which key it triggers on and then play for instant ostinato creation. It’s like an arpeggiator on a synthesiser.
