Spitfire releases Kitchenware – Glass by Paul Clarvis

Spitfire Kitchenware - Glass

Spitfire Audio has announced the release of Kitchenware – Glass, a new sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

An extraordinary anthology of a set of tuned wine glass performed with a number of techniques by percussion supremo Paul Clarvis. Alongside an esoteric collection of domestic glass and ceramic kitchenware meticulously recorded with a selection of beaters and techniques to create a library of tuned percussion from another world. A selection of sounds that give you the effect of well worn mallet instruments but without their associated stereotypes. Not quite glockenspiels, not quite celestes, not quite bowed vibraphones. This library will add an enticing magic to your music.

To accompany and flatter our amazing selection of Metalware released in 2013 we’re proud to bring you this volume of 4.1 GB compressed data from over 10.7 GB in WAV format and over 12,000 samples. With up to 3 dynamic layers and 5 round robins per instrument, including a variety of easily switchable beaters and techniques, including finger nail flicks and slaps .

Arranged in three sections this library features a set of chromatically tuned glasses played by supremo Paul Clarvis a number of different ways: different hits, flicks, bows and rubs. The second section features a selection of 17 different domestic pieces of glass and enamel-ware played struck 5 different ways. The third is this same lineup up played with water in to give it a drifting dreamy quality. The whole library is recorded with a selection of top quality mics and perspectives.

The library is available for the introductory price of £49 GBP for 2 weeks (regular £66 GBP).

Spitfire releases Inder Goldfinger Percussion & Scraped Percussion

Inder Goldfinger Percussion

Spitfire has announced the release of Inder Goldfinger Percussion and Scraped Percussion, two sample libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

We have not set out to create a definitive ‘world’ collection here, we have simply aimed to capture Inder, his personality, his style of playing and the wonderful collection of instruments he uses as part of his armoury. We don’t dare mention terms like ‘world’ or ‘ethnic’ within the concept of this library because it is neither, and for it to be constrained to such genres would be a massive failure of intention on our part. This is the heritage, experience and invention of one man living and working in the melting pot that is the United Kingdom.

The library centres around Inder’s primary instrument, the Tabla, but extends way beyond that in a comprehensive collection of ** drums, cymbals, and other instruments. Also featured in this library are Inder’s extensive experiments using water to change the timbre, pitch and morph the sounds whilst playing (recorded with submerged water mics specially hired-in for the occasion!).

The Inder Goldfinger Percussion library is available to purchase for the introductory price of £99 GBP until February 1st, 2014 (regular £132 GBP). Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2.4 or higher.

Scraped Percussion is a library by Paul Clarvis, featuring a selection of bowable, rubbed and scraped delights to add extraordinary, other worldy textures, flavours and colours to your music.

Scraped Percussion

From some glorious cymbals to the teeth shattering polystyrene cup. This is a definitive range of percussion played in ways the makers never had in mind! Performed by Paul Clarvis, one of the true session greats in London. This selection is made up from his experience being asked frequently by top-end A-list film composers and artists what they would like to add that extra “edge” and contemporary sonic architecture to their scores.

Combined with the majesty of the hall at Air, that signal chain, that 2” tape, Jake Jackson’s mastery of the room and the mixes, and a beautifully programmed instrument that “just works”, we’re sure you’ll agree you’ve just laid your hands on something truly special.

Scraped Percussion is available for the introductory price of £40 GBP until February 1st, 2014 (regular £55 GBP).

Spitfire Audio releases Hg2O for Kontakt

Spitfire Audio Hg2O

Spitfire Audio has announced the release of Hg2O, a new sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Hg2O is a set of samples performed by Paul Clarvis of a metallic atonal acoustic musical instrument consisting of a stainless steel resonator bowl or pan with a cylindrical neck and bronze rods of different lengths and diameters around the rim of the bowl. The resonator may contain a small amount of water giving the waterphone a vibrant ethereal sound that has appeared in countless movie soundtracks, record albums, and live performances.

Recorded by Jake Jackson at Lyndhurst Hall – Air Studios, one of the finest scoring stages in the world, through a huge array of priceless vintage microphones via Neve “monserrat” pre-amps to a Studer 2″ tape machine and then into digital at 96k via the best Prism AD converters.

They’ve sampled deeply both bowed or drummed with movements to affect the water inside. This creates the resonant characteristics of the bowl and rods in combination with the movement of the water. The sound of the waterphone is often used to evoke mystery and suspense.

The Hg2O library is available to purchase for the introductory price of £33 GBP (RRP £44) for the next 10 days. Requires Kontakt full version.
