Over £12m paid in royalties
Right from our very first sample library, we have always believed in paying musicians not just for their time, but also royalties on their recordings.
So whenever you invest in a Spitfire Audio library, every musician who played on that library receives a royalty payment. This includes many of our synthesised and textural libraries, which are often based on acoustic recordings. We also pay royalties to our collaborators, such as the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Ólafur Arnalds.
Over £3m paid booking musicians
During library recording sessions, we pay musicians for their time at top industry rates. And we are proud to say that we work with many of London’s finest orchestral session musicians, year after year.
1% of annual turnover to community projects
Every year, we donate 1% of our total company income to people and organisations doing good things that we believe in.
These include charity partners and organisations such as Safer London, Magic Breakfast and Saffron, as well as grants and bursaries to schemes like Tileyard Education and the Abram Wilson Foundation, who nurture and encourage music industry talent.
Hundreds of free composing masterclasses
Every month, our team of in-house composers create a wide range of step-by-step videos on different aspects of writing music – particularly scoring for film, TV and games.
