    Progressive scraped, rubbed and bowed percussion

    A selection of progressive, unconventional percussive sounds, created using imaginatively played percussion instruments and objects — scraped, bowed, rubbed and brushed — to create unique sounds and textures.

    Recorded in The Hall at AIR Studios and played by percussionist legend Paul Clarvis, it is designed to blend perfectly with all of our Albion, Symphonic and Percussion libraries.

    Listen to Scraped Percussion

    Paul Clarvis in recording session

    With eight microphone positions and three stereo mixes, you can not only mix and blend to fit the application you’re working on, but also automate for dramatic shifts in focus and depth, output assignable for surround and 5.1 use.

    The definitive range is designed to fit in with Spitfire's entire orchestral canon, including Albion and Symphonic. Designed to lock together sonically with all of our libraries recorded in The Hall at AIR Studios, whether it be timpani from the percussion range, or Hg2O, Grand Piano and Spitfire Harp, they will sound like they are all in the same room. We provide a series of detailed mixing options that allow you to dry the sound up or make it more ambient, whilst preserving the acoustic integrity and perspective of a consistent microphone set up and room configuration. The instruments are all sampled in great detail but designed to be instantly playable, with simple integration into larger arrangements and templates without risk of demanding too much from your system resources.

    We have also included a collection of morphed pads and ambiences from the raw organic samples in our Mercury Synth engine to offer instant inspiration and versatility.
