  • Monstrous distortion from a guitar innovator

    We teamed up with guitar innovator and prolific composer Joey Santiago (lead guitarist, The Pixies) to create a library of beautifully distorted filth — the bedrock of The Pixies' epic sound – with extra warped content from the Spitfire team. Joey's signature sounds and playing styles created using his enviable guitar, pedal and amp collection will provide you with endless inspiration, while Spitfire's technology will enable you to make each sound your own.

    The Overview panel

    Smc0174 Gui1 Full
    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

    Smc0174 Gui2 Full
    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

    Smc0174 Gui3 Full
    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.

    EDNA engine

    Smc0174 Gui4 Full
    This interface houses our own sample-synthesiser engine. You can use it to combine two sounds and modulate between them with envelopes, filters and wobbles per sound, as well as a gate sequencer and a selection of go-to FX.

    Mercury synth

    Smc0174 Gui5 Full
    This ingenious user interface features a range of organic sounds and specially curated warped sounds. All of the controls are assignable to your control surface, giving you the ability to instantly make our sounds your own.
