Spitfire Audio has announced the release of Sable – “Ensembles”, an instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

We have cherry picked the most essential and popular articulations from this blue chip library to make Sable available in an “ensembles format” for the first time. Each articulation has been painstakingly re-mixed to get the best balance of sections with no audible transitions between them. At last we can not only work these into our arrangements and orchestrations but actually compose with them from the get go too.

BML Sable is a totally unique and very special string series that concentrates on extreme detail, beauty and nuance. Made up from a small band (4,3,3,3) of the finest players London has to offer and recorded at Air Studios, one of the greatest recording studios in the world. Sable is part of the British Modular Range, arguably the greatest sounding ultra-deep-sampled orchestral range on the planet today.

Ensembles is made up of the “greatest hits” of the four volumes released thus far. From simple longs, longs muted, staccatos and spiccatos, to the beguiling flautando, sul tasto and harmonics. For users unfamiliar with the Sable range this is the opportunity to taste the riches of it whilst having the non fussy ease-of-use of an ensemble range. With the ensemble playing 15 different articulations all with full Sable spec vibrato, dynamic and round robin control, with 4 stereo mic positions, 20,996 samples giving 42.4 hours of pure content, 40.9GB uncompressed 24 bit data with a lossless compressed download size of 28.4GB.

The library is available for purchase for the introductory price of £199 GBP until July 1st, 2014 (regular £249 GBP). Existing Sable users will receive an additional 20% off voucher for this library.
