Spitfire Studio Strings – first of an all-new Spitfire Orchestra range

Posted on: Thursday 11th of October 2018

Spitfire Studio Strings is Spitfire Audio’s first release of a new Spitfire orchestral range of Kontakt libraries. The Professional edition is $499 and the ‘core’ is $249 during its initial sale period. Studio Strings is a hefty download with 210GB of samples, (232 articulations for Professional) across Violins, Violas, Celli, and Basses of a 30 piece string section. The core edition features less microphones and articulations,

Recorded in Air Studios – “Simon Rhodes was an obvious choice for our entirely new Studio orchestra range — a microphone magician with multiple Grammy awards to his name, and a senior engineer at Abbey Road Studios. He has worked at the highest level in film score recording, having been James Horner’s go-to engineer for 18 years. Blockbuster movies such as Avatar, Skyfall and Spectre have also had the Rhodes treatment.

Simon Rhodes –“For the Spitfire Studio Strings sessions, I used one of my tried and tested approaches to smaller rooms, but have incorporated layers and options by using a variety of microphone setups – right down to that very close, Eleanor Rigby sound. With a touch of reverb on,” says Simon, “this library is going to sound very lush and beautiful, but at the same time keep hold of all the detail.”

Lots of articulations –  Instruments covered are Violin, Viola, Cello, and Bass (across different group configurations).

Standard Spitfire GUI – if you’ve used Spitfire’s previous Kontakt libraries, you’ll feel comfortable navigating this very familiar user interface
