Spitfire Audio has launched Albion One, a collection of epic composer tools for Native Instruments Kontakt and Kontakt Player, updated in celebration of Spitfire Audio’s 10th Anniversary year.
The library features a 109 piece orchestra accompanied by a thunderous cinematic percussion section, warp-able loops designed by award-winning music makers, plus an enormous steam synthesizer.
We were convinced that in order to create a great film scoring tool we should go to where the best film scores are recorded. Air Studios in London was founded by Sir George Martin, the legendary producer behind The Beatles. Its Hall has been the choice of Hollywood directors for decades, with countless blockbuster scores being recorded there (Justice League, Interstellar, Harry Potter, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Lord Of The Rings – the list goes on).
Our Albion ONE orchestra was recorded by award-winning engineers via world-class equipment: priceless ribbon and valve mics through Neve Montserrat preamps, the largest 88R Neve console in the world and onto pristine 2” tape before being converted with the top-of-their-class Prism AD converters at 96k. No expense has been spared in order to capture in exactly the same way as for the movies.
