    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. This is a full gathering of the brass family, including less frequently heard relatives such as bass trumpet, contrabass tuba, and cimbasso. Epic power is on tap, but it comes with the grace and pinpoint detail of the dry stage.

    Spitfire Studio Brass Professional captures the widest emotional range of performance, with abundant articulations. Choose solo, duet, or section performances; realise the detail of your music with swells, flutter tongues, and staccatissimo stabs as well as traditional articulations; choose from microphones placed super-close to the player, through to outriggers and ambients at the edges of AIR Studio One – or mix and match for absolute tonal control.

    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.
