Spitfire Audio has announced the release of a sample library by Guatemalan-born cellist and composer Mabe Fratti and Mexican multidisciplinary sound artist Concepción Huerta.

Estática features unorthodox cello techniques, analog synthesizers, and vocal-based pads, as well as atmospheric industrial warps and highly visceral, abstract textures that have been distorted, deconstructed, and pushed to their limits using the artists’ enviable pedal collections and bespoke tape processing techniques.

Full of contrast and character, each sound is highly evocative — from ethereal and nostalgic to unsettling, aggressive and dystopian atmospheres that cut right through a mix — ready to breathe new life into your compositions and spark new ideas.

Estática features

  • 32 presets, split into four sections: Cello (13), Tape (11), Vocals (4), Warps (4)..
  • 8 controls, providing a wealth of complex sonic possibilities : Expression, Dynamics (processed signal), Reverb, Attack, Release, Chorus, Flanger and Phaser— engineered to offer a wide range of detailed sound-sculpting possibilities within a single patch, so it sounds like you.
  • The dynamics slider controls an in-built processed signal, curated by the artists, starting with the dry signal and bringing in pre-programmed effects, unique to each individual preset.
  • 7 bespoke IR reverbs, from Kiln to Church Balcony.
  • Velocity sensitive for varying tones.
  • 2.3GB content.

Estática for the Spitfire Audio app (VST/VST3, AU and AAX) is available for purchase for 29 USD/EUR/GBP (incl. VAT where applicable). The Estática sample library has been made in conjunction with Fratti & Huerta’s EP of the same name, out now on SA Recordings.
