Spitfire releases Albion IV – UIST

Spitfire Albion IV - UIST

Spitfire Audio has launched Albion IV – UIST, a new orchestral library for Kontakt featuring large ensembles.

A once-in-a-generation collection of extraordinary “progressive” orchestral techniques curated by contemporary music titan Ben Foskett.

Performed by experts of contemporary, atonal and avant garde. Recorded for a complete week at the hall at Air Studios.

With over 800 orchestral articulations and nearly 200 unique warped instruments this is a must have for existing owners of both the Albion and BML ranges. Or indeed as a stand-alone library for anyone wishing to take their music to fascinating new realms.

The library is available for the introductory price of £269 GBP until January 5th, 2015 (regular £349 GBP).

ProjectSAM updates Symphobia 1 & Symphobia 2 + Price drop

ProjectSAM Symphobia

ProjectSAM has released version 1.41 of its Symphobia 1 and Symphobia 2 libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Symphobia is everything you have been missing in your orchestral palette: immersive ensemble multi-samples attained by true ensemble recordings and intense cinematic effects. All available in a rich selection of combinations and articulations.

Symphobia 2 is more of what you’ve been missing in your orchestral palette. All-new orchestral articulations, massive amounts of fresh and inspiring symphonic effects, exclusive legato ensembles with real legato transitions, Dystopia III and a brand-new interface.

Changes in Symphobia 1 & Symphobia 2 v1.41

  • By popular request, the ability to choose your preferred way of selecting articulations:
    • SWITCH: 1.30-style keyswitches, one articulation at a time.
    • STACK: 1.40-style on/off toggling of multiple articulations individually.
  • Ability to enable or disable MIDI triggers on the keyboard. This is especially useful for live situations where you don’t want to accidentally switch or toggle other articulations.

ProjectSAM has also annouced that the pricing of its fully updated Symphobia Series has been lowered.
