Spitfire Audio has announced the release of its latest LABS instrument: Monochord.

In our second collaboration with the National Theatre, we worked with Oscar-winning composer Stephen Warbeck to capture this unique microtonal instrument, which formed the backbone to his score for the hit 2019 production, Translations.

Performed by Stephen Hiscock, it features various playing styles and effects, including plucks, swipes, sustained paddling strums and warped presets, creating distinctively visceral textures.

Monochord is a free download for the Spitfire Audio App (also free).
