Spitfire releases Gallon Idiophones instrument library

Spitfire Audio Gallon Idiophones

Spitfire Audio has launched Gallon Idiophones, an instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt featuring prepared steel pans by percussionist Frank Ricotti.

Having produced a series of staples in the ‘Harpsichord’, our seminal ‘Orchestral Percussion’ range and other oft seen session overdub favourites in our ‘Definitive’ range. We’re now pleased to be entering a more esoteric stage with our adventures in the hall at Air Studios, one of the finest sought after scoring stages in the world. Finding new and interesting articles to play in a manner that fits in with our film, game, TV and trailer aesthetic.

The style in which these pans have been recorded and played resonates less with their proud Caribbean heritage, but more with something avant-garde and extraordinary. Something that grabs you and pulls you in, from soft layers of sheer naive beauty to barking metallic stabs that will permeate your scores with biting interest. As they’re all recorded in situ in the same room, everything in our ‘definitive’ range locks together with large swathes of our catalogue from ‘Albion’, through the epochal ‘BML’ to our creative partnership with Hans Zimmer.

Gallon Idiophones is available for the introductory price of £49 GBP until November 1st, 2014 (RRP £65 GBP).

Spitfire launches Igneous electric cello by Peter Gregson

Spitfire Audio Igneous

Spitfire Audio has announced the release of Peter Gregson’s Igneous, an electric cello instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Centred around a sophisticated virtual instrument recorded at 3 dynamic layers and 3 bowing positions with a host of “artisan” articulations, and many additional techniques, Spitfire believe they have encapsulated the very soul that is the searing talent of Electric Cellist, Peter Gregson. With a whole host of experimental techniques pumped through the most extraordinary signal paths, we feel the 7 month adventure that is Igenous is the perfect introduction into the inspiring, fiery and searing world of the electrified cello.

Deep sampled in three different bowing positions multiple dynamic, vibrato layers and playing styles. A host of experimental signal paths and additional techniques and phrases. Peter Gregson’s ‘Igneous’ has to be the most definitive and deeply sampled instrument of it’s type with the quality, verve and taste bar that sets Spitfire aside from it’s peers.

The library is available for the introductory price of £74 until October 1st, 2014 (RRP £99 GB).

Related: , , Posted in news on Sep 03, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Spitfire Audio has announced the release of Earth, the first library in the e(lectronic)DNA range.

Spitfire eDNA Earth

Phase #1 ‘EARTH’ is the first release from Spitfire’s new E(lectronic)DNA range and is an awesome, and complex collection of 1900+ factory instruments mangled into 1001 custom patches by our award winning team of composers, sound-smiths, producers and engineers.

So, load up eDNA, the most advanced interface we have yet created, slam in a cartridge and play play play…

Such is the depth of content here that by playing every sound for not more than 30 seconds, it would take you exactly 24 hours to listen to every instrument and patch on ‘EARTH’… But it would be 24 hours of inspiring, liberating, satisfyingly un-pristine, and often flthy sounds! This, is something very very different and very very special…

The library is available for purchase for the introductory price of £129 GBP until October 1st, 2014 (RRP £149 GBP). Earth is bundled with Kontakt Player.

Spitfire releases Titanium Euphone for Kontakt

Spitfire Audio has announced the release of Titanium Euphone, a new instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Spitfire Audio Titanium Euphone

Gently stroke the finely crafted glass rods and listen in wonder as the movement resonates the tuning rods and in turn the metal and fibreglass amplifying resonators, creating a sound unlike any other.

The instruments ancestry dates back to the famous Cristal Baschet, made famous by the Baschet Brothers, but this Titanium Euphone is a one of a kind modern take on a French heirloom. Commissioned by the performer and owner, award winning composer Christian Henson, who along with the Spitfire team, has deeply sampled these other worldly tones in perfect harmony with the needs of any modern music maker.

The library is available for purchase for the introductory price of £75 GBP until August 14th, 2014 (regular £99 GBP). Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2.4 or higher.
