Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds Professional

Our Definitive Woodwind Orchestra

Lyndhurst Hall at AIR Studios, London. In the origin story of Spitfire Audio, this is where it all began. We return to complete what is the beating heart of our symphonic range—Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds Professional. Performed by London’s first-call woodwind players, captured in a room unlike any other, the sound is equally majestic and inspiring, warmly embracing the instruments in The Hall’s lush reverberation.

The Professional edition brings a new level of customisation with a total of 10 signals, featuring 7 mic positions and 3 expertly engineered mixes by Jake Jackson (WandaVision, Emma, David Copperfield, It: Chapter 2). Recorded to tape using AIR’s unparalleled signal path and microphone selection, this library is bursting with an encyclopedic offering of techniques—the most of any Spitfire Audio library. Used by top names in film and TV music, this is an absolute workhorse that offers the ultimate level of choice and control.

"Spitfire Audio’s beautiful-sounding orchestral palette will lead you to new worlds of colour and texture."


– John Powell (Solo: A Star Wars Story, The Bourne quadrilogy)



PEAK OF PROFESSIONALISM



Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds Professional has been created with the world's finest woodwind players and is presented with essential and versatile microphone positions. In addition to a comprehensive selection of articulations, this title includes a selection of sophisticated and unique techniques, such as clarinet flutter tongue. An essential part of your orchestral palette, the woods are your secret weapon to adding depth and mystery to scores. From traditional piccolos, flutes, oboes, clarinets, and bassoons to a contemporary selection of instruments including alto, bass flutes, bass clarinets, contrabass clarinets and a thunderous contrabassoon, this timeless collection will add depth and colour to orchestral compositions.






"AIR Studios is one of the most unique and inspiring acoustic environments in the world."


– Trevor Morris (Vikings, The Tutors, Immortals)



OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME



The Crown, Wonder Woman 1984, The Trial of The Chicago 7, James Bond, Interstellar, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Dark Knight, Harry Potter, Gladiator—all were recorded in Lyndhurst Hall at London’s AIR Studios, Spitfire Audio’s spiritual home and a room where blockbuster scores are born. Architecturally unique, the acoustic properties of the interior of Lyndhurst Hall are renowned globally, loved by composers and musicians alike. There is a gentle reverberation in the room that adds beauty to anything played there. The sound produced by a soloist, chamber ensemble or indeed a full symphonic orchestra expands and blooms inside the space, a truly versatile palette giving access to a range of textures from delicate and intimate to thunderous and epic.






"Their libraries are beautifully recorded at AIR and full of character."


– Simon Rhodes (1917, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Skyfall)



CONTROL WITH PURPOSE



Building on the core Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds, this new Professional library is packed with 167GB of extra content and features three curated mixes–Fine, Medium, and Broad— by the award-winning engineer, Jake Jackson, offering you an immediate and recognisable blockbuster sound. These mix perspectives, crafted using single voices per note for low CPU/RAM usage, prove to be indispensable for creating ready-made mixes that work across the entire orchestra.

Need more control to bring your score to life? Look no further than the 10 signals featuring 7 classic microphone positions to create your own custom mixes, giving you a diverse range of palettes from a single room. Included are 3 alternative (ALT) microphones: warm Close Ribbon (Cr), close Stereo Pair (St) and spacious Gallery (G) signals, as well as the addition of Outrigger signals to the common Close Tree Ambient (known as CTA), creating CTAO for the classic Spitfire Audio setup.






"I haven't heard anything to compare with their realism.”


– Nicholas Hooper (Harry Potter, Land of the Tiger and Andes to Amazon)
