Spitfire Audio has launched a new Kontakt Player instrument library that takes inspiration from iconic composer Bernard Herrmann.

Spitfire’s first dry scoring stage ensemble library, inspired by the electric genius of Bernard Herrmann. Renowned for his groundbreaking scores including Citizen Kane, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Psycho, Vertigo and Taxi Driver, his legacy continues to inspire the work of composers today.

We’ve worked exclusively with Bernard Herrmann’s estate to curate and assemble a unique set of studio orchestra ensembles, informed directly by the composer’s legendary orchestration aesthetic.

Recorded at Studio 1 Air Lyndhurst by Simon Rhodes (Avatar, Grand Budapest Hotel, Spectre, Harry Potter, There Will Be Blood), we’ve captured players performing as Herrmann would have had them – boisterous, lively and upfront, with patches featuring selected groups, unusual instrumental combis, chords, effects and much more. Fire-up this versatile Toolkit for lively and distinctive scoring.

The Bernard Herrmann Composor Toolkit is available for a time-limited introductory price of £339 GBP (inc. VAT)/$399 USD/409 EUR (inc. VAT) until Thursday, July 6th, 2017. Regular price is £429 GBP (inc. VAT)/$499 USD/509 EUR (inc. VAT).
