    Spitfire Studio Brass is the second release in our vital all-new Spitfire Studio Orchestra range. Two years in the making, our ambition was to create an incredibly versatile pro-end dry stage sample library. 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 brass library with depth, detail, and awesome punch.

    Epic power is on tap, with the widest emotional range of performance, but it comes with the grace and pinpoint detail of the dry stage, expertly recorded by Grammy award-winning engineer Simon Rhodes. Choose solo, duet, or section performances, and realise the detail of your music with swells, flutter tongues, and staccatissimo stabs, as well as traditional articulations.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    FAQs

    What is the difference between Spitfire Studio Brass and Spitfire Studio Brass Professional?

    Spitfire Studio Brass features 8 essential instrument patches with 130 articulations to choose from, all available with the default Decca Tree microphone position. With Professional, you have access to 9 more instruments, 260 articulations, as well as seven extra unique microphone positions and two stereo mixes:

    Spitfire Studio Brass

    • 8 instruments
    • 4 solo instruments
    • Tree 1
    • Up to 4 round robins

    Spitfire Studio Brass Professional — all of the above, plus:

    • 17 instruments
    • 13 solo instruments
    • Close 1, Close 2, Tree 1, Tree 2, Ambients, Outriggers, Mix 1 and 2


    Is there a crossgrade path to Spitfire Studio Brass Professional?

    Yes, the upgrade price is simply the price difference between the two products at the point of purchase. Add Spitfire Studio Brass Professional to your cart, and it will intelligently calculate your crossgrade price. Make sure you’re logged in first!


    How is this different from Spitfire Symphonic Brass?

    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’. This can’t be achieved in Symphonic Brass, without having a lot more players. Unlike Spitfire Symphonic Brass, Spitfire Studio Brass Professional also has two more instruments — the Piccolo Trumpet, and the Euphonium — and two individual french horn and trumpet soloists, rather than one.
