Spitfire Audio has announced availability of a new Kontakt Player powered sample library designed for modern scoring, inspired by the past.
Recorded at the legendary Castlesound Studios in Edinburgh, Scotland, Albion Solstice is an ultra-intimate and dynamic selection of uniquely workshopped ensembles, featuring highly specialized players and sound smiths from a cross-section of classical, folk, Celtic, Gaelic, and other traditions, mixed with modern instrumentation such as analog synthesizers, Eurorack modular, electric guitar textures, tuned percussion, and distinctive audio processing.
A celebration of un-notated traditions passed down through generations, and captured through the magic of sampling, Albion Solstice explores the visionary artistry from modern, folk, and heritage instruments. Passionately curated, this library transcends genre to give you everything you need to create modern cinematic scores.
The breadth of instrumentation and alternative techniques that forms the nucleus of this composing toolkit is staggering. Inspired by our rich and varied musical heritage, Solstice is a wellspring of opportunities featuring strings, brass, and woodwind accompanied by unique instruments from nyckelharpa, Celtic fiddles, hurdy-gurdy, and modern synthesizers, percussion performances, and much more. This is not a library to create folk music with, but simply everything you need to create cinematic scores for today, inspired by the past.
Albion Solstice is available for a time-limited introductory price of £299 GBP or 349 USD/EUR until July 15th, 2021 (regular £399 GBP or 449 USD/EUR). Prices incl. VAT where applicable. Owners of any Albion library can get an additional 15% discount during the promotion.
