Without exception the pet favourite library of everyone who works at Spitfire has been the Sable chamber strings library. A rare set of recordings featuring just 16 players, proving that small can be more beautiful and that detailed sampling makes for better composing! We’re happy too that Sable has a core global following of dedicated and in many ways patient users.
It has been a 4 year labour of love, growing, blooming into a very detailed sampling project. However as users and developers who take pride in listening to our customers, we understand that it has been an incredibly difficult library to maintain, and for new users it has all the appeal of a kit car!
For this reason, we have retired Sable in favour of a rationalised and refreshed new product.
Spitfire Chamber Strings is now a Kontakt Player library which you can access from your library pane. It has a simplified folder architecture that offers accessibility to newbies and intuitive ease of use and convenience for veterans.
We’re proud to announce that Spitfire Chamber Strings is our first product to ship with Native Control Standard offering ease of use with Native Instruments’ excellent keyboard controllers.
Spitfire Chamber Strings comes with a more intuitive GUI including inline help, so you can boot up and play without having to consult user manuals, search the internet, or get your mates round to help you use it!
Whilst we pride ourselves on the quality of our wares, Sable has been a complicated beast to maintain. So we’ve given it a spring clean, safe in the knowledge that the update now is a simple ‘start from scratch’ ensuring you all get the product we want you to have!
I already own everything why crossgrade even if it is for free?
Other than the enhancements we have already talked of we have to admit it’s for you that we have worked months to do this for. We have listened to your feedback and your wonderful music. We have shared with you our love of this library but it has become increasingly difficult to maintain, update and care for. We feel that the new Spitfire Chamber Strings experience will offer you the chamber strings library we have always wanted. Deep and friendly, detailed and easy to use. Spitfire Chamber Strings ensures that we keep maintaining this rare set of samples well into the future and we thank you for your support.
