Spitfire Audio Studio Brass Professional

Posted on: Wednesday 19th of December 2018

Two years in the making, Spitfire Studio Brass has the high production values we’ve come to expect from this sample library developer: A-list London performers playing the best instruments through a top quality signal path, recorded to tape (by Grammy-Award-winning engineer Simon Rhodes) at AIR Studios’ Studio 1. Spitfire Audio’s second showing in its all-new studio orchestral range is available as both standard (Spitfire Studio Brass) and extended (Spitfire Studio Brass Professional) editions.

Spitfire Studio Brass includes four soloists, plus two player sections – Horn Solo 1, Horns a4, Tenor Trombones a2, Bass Trombones a2, Trumpet Solo, Trumpets a2, Tuba, and Cimbasso – all recorded through a Schoeps Decca Tree (stereo microphone setup with three omnidirectional microphones arranged in a triangle).

Spitfire Studio Brass Professional permits its users to delve deeper by boosting the instrument count to 17, spanning from the soaring highs of a Piccolo Trumpet down to the volcanic tremors of a Contrabass Tuba (to also include: Horn Solo 1, Horn Solo 2, Horns a4, Trumpet Solo 1, Trumpet Solo 2, Trumpets a2, Bass Trumpet, Tenor Trombone Solo, Tenor Trombones a2, Bass Trombone Solo, Bass Trombones a2, Contrabass Trombone, Tuba, Cimbasso, and Euphonium). That’s 13 solo instruments, including two separate, solo trumpet players, plus two horn players.

Extensive control of the sound is also available, thanks to the inclusion of two ready-to-go mixes, two close-mic arrangements, two Decca Tree setups, ambients, and outriggers. On top of that, users can also access and personalise their own mix of Simon Rhodes’ microphone arsenal –  picked up by the best on offer from Neumann, Schoeps, SE Electronics, and Sennheiser. Such  detail and control also extends to the articulations, which not only fulfil all the traditional requirements but also include extended techniques and mutes, stomach-punching fortississimo (fff), and three variants of shorts: staccatissimo, tenuto, and marcato.

Spitfire Studio Brass is available at an introductory price of £129 (reg £169), Spitfire Studio Brass Professional at £249 (reg £349)
