Spitfire Audio has launched Additional Flutes, the last release in the British Modular Library series of orchestral sample libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Throughout 2013 Spitfire secretly went into the hall at Air Studios for the biggest round of sampling it has ever undertaken. With production complete roughly twelve months ago we announced the impossible. That we were, in just one year, going to create the first volume of a next-gen deeply sampled modular orchestral library to beat all others. The first commercial British orchestral sample library featuring the greatest players, playing the greatest instruments in the greatest space in the world. Built by composers, for composers and curated by masters in the field of sampling.
It is with the launch of this final BML module of the year, that we are fighting back the tears, wiping away the blood and dressing the wounds of 12 months hard battle. We made it, and what better way to present our freshly baked orchestral cake to you but with a ripe little cherry on top. We’re now happy to announce that you need not go anywhere else for your orchestral needs but the hall. THE BRITISH MODULAR LIBRARY VOLUME 1 IS NOW COMPLETE!
As with all BML modules Additional Flutes is a deeply sampled affair with multiple round robins, dynamic layers, vibrato control, numerous mic positions and perspectives and the eponymous Jake Jackson mixes for CPU-light ease of use.
Additional Flutes is a single volume library so unlike ‘essential articulations’ or ‘Volume 1′ modules this is a very deeply sampled multi articulation module. These will get you set with everything you’d need from these instruments with both essential and additional articulations in the one module.
The library is available for purchase for the introductory price of £169 GBP until January 2nd, 2015 (RRP £229 GBP).

Spitfire Audio has announced the release of Horn Phalanx, a new British Modular Library series instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
With Sable strings we proved that small can be beautiful. With our intricate woodwind and awe inspiring brass ranges we have proven that attention to moving composition and intricate arrangement can move your listener as much as scale. But in the case of Mural, sometimes size DOES matter. We’ve applied this to this new set of “Phalanx” brass modules which feature large, 6 piece sections leathering it at the hall in Air-Studios.
First up is our Horn Phalanx, capturing that unmistakable sound of a large array of brass, valves and bells (and quite a lot of spit) belting it in unison. You can’t imitate the power of this. The horns are placed in situ around the original BML “Horn Section Vol.1″ seating, so if you want to go truly Wagnerian add the phalanx to our original horn line to get 9 players!
This is a self contained library that features a specially curated set of articulations for this size of section, designed by our award winning team of composers, and with the players themselves. All available with the standard and extended array of microphone mixes so you can instantly tweak the perspective of the performance space.
Horn Phalanx is available for purchase for the introductory price of £169 GBP until December 1st, 2014 (RRP £229 GBP).

Spitfire Audio has released Low Reeds Volume 1, a new British Modular Library series instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
BML 106 – Reeds is possibly the most surprisingly beautiful component of the BML range. 3 x Bassoons (solo and ensemble (a2)) an earth shuddering Contra Bassoon and a Cor Anglais (or English Horn) that will make your heart bleed. In this volume you will find everything you need to get up and running with simply the most beautiful, realistic, playable and inspirational low reeds library yet created.
This is a deeply sampled library featuring the talents of the greatest woodwind players in London today. Recorded to tape via the finest signal chain in the finest room. This volume contains no less than a selection of essential articulations curated by multi award winning composers and musicians. The library features multiple (UP TO 8) round robins, dynamic layers and easy to use, fully functional legato with control of vibrato. This instalment is sure to will provide the most extraordinary colour and scope to your orchestral palette and we hope will encourage and inspire your best writing.
The library is available for purchase for the introductory price of £169 GBP until December 1st, 2014 (RRP £229 GBP).

Spitfire Audio has launched HZ03 – London Solos, a new volume in the series of Hans Zimmer percussion libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt and Kontakt Player.
Percussion legend Frank Ricotti and long term collaborator with Hans plays the definitive anthology of percussion instruments and styles developed over ten years of blockbuster score making. Volume 3 completes the Hans Zimmer project with a beautiful selection of solo instruments that offer added bite, detail, focus, clarity and nuance to this epic series. Hans loves the quiet layers more than any other so whilst, as Frank would put it, the “twat it” layers give you the bitey thunder you’d expect, the lower layers offer up the potential for engaging delicate drum programming to help tick your cues along.
Instruments played in a variety of ways include: Bucket, Snare, Crusher, Paper Djun, Tombek, Dohl, Darbuca, Surdu, Darbucket. All recorded super deep at Air-Studios, one of the finest scoring stages on the planet. With a number of mixes, mics and positions produced by Hans himself and Grammy winners Alan Meyerson & Geoff Foster.
The Kontakt Player powered library is available for the introductory price of £149 GBP until November 14th, 2014 (RRP £199 GBP).

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).
