Spitfire Audio has announced the release of a new percussion instrument library in collaboration with Evelyn Glennie. Resonate explores and unlocks the boundless potential of orchestral percussion with a treasury of sounds that bridges the gap between traditional and experimental scores.
For years, half the magic of sound has been disregarded. Films and trailers have delivered gigantic hits in epic technicolour, but neglected the essence of percussion’s power: resonance. A real orchestral strike lives on long after the initial impact dies away—in reverberations that rumble, pierce, rattle, and sing. Those aftershocks have the power to thrill and terrify, lure and intrigue. And now they’re at your fingertips.
Built in collaboration with Dame Evelyn Glennie—one of history’s most influential percussionists—Resonate unlocks the other-worldly mystery, magic, and tension of orchestral percussion. Tuned and untuned instruments collide across fourteen signals, then spin out toward new frontiers of texture, tone, and dimension. There, hits, strikes, and spine-tingling scrapes give way to essential cinematic reverberations, captured at Hollywood’s most celebrated recording hall—AIR Studios.
Available for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU, AAX), Resonate is on sale for the intro price of £149 GBP or 179 USD/EUR until June 30th, 2022 (regular £199 GBP or 249 USD/EUR). Owners of Spitfire Percussion and Scraped Percussion can purchase Resonate for £129 GBP or 159 USD/EUR during the promotion. Prices incl. VAT where applicable.
