  • Our definitive woodwind orchestra

    Lyndhurst Hall at AIR Studios, London. In the origin story of Spitfire Audio, this is where it all began. We return to complete what is the beating heart of our symphonic range—Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds Professional. Performed by London’s first-call woodwind players, captured in a room unlike any other, the sound is equally majestic and inspiring, warmly embracing the instruments in The Hall’s lush reverberation.

    The Professional edition brings additional customisation with a total of 10 signals, featuring 7 mic positions and 3 expertly engineered mixes by Jake Jackson (WandaVision, Emma, David Copperfield, It: Chapter 2). Recorded to tape using AIR’s unparalleled signal path and microphone selection, this library is bursting with an encyclopedic offering of techniques—the most of any Spitfire Audio library. Used by top names in film and TV music, this is an absolute workhorse that offers the ultimate level of choice and control.
