    Spitfire Studio Woodwinds is the third and final release in our vital Spitfire Studio Orchestra range. Our ambition was to create an incredibly versatile pro-end dry stage sample library, and by choosing the crisp and vibrant setting of AIR Studio One – a smaller, more controllable space than the opulent Lyndhurst Hall – we offer our fellow composers a woodwind library that captures every grain in depth and detail.

    As with our other Studio libraries, we offer you a wide range of instruments from the section – from the guttural depths of the bassoon to the gleaming sounds of the piccolo. With solo or section performances, choose from an abundant range of articulations, and realise the detail of your music with rips, key noise FX, swells, and sforzandi. Boasting the widest emotional range of performance in pin-sharp detail, Spitfire Studio Woodwinds will breathe new life in to your orchestra.

    The overview panel

    Overview panel GUI
    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

    General controls GUI
    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

    Ostinatum GUI
    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.

    How is this different from Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds?

    Recorded in Studio One at Air instead of Lyndhurst Hall, where we recorded the Symphonic range, this library offers a more controlled sound - instantly more focused and detailed - compared to the legendary lush and vibrant reverb of ‘The Hall’.
