Spitfire Audio have released Mercury, an instrument with unearthly sounds from Hollywood’s secret weapon. It’s available at the intro price of £99.00, increasing to £149.00 after the promotion. The offer ends September l5th.
Mercury samples fourteen one-of-a-kind acoustic sculptures, hand-crafted by Hollywood’s premier instrument designer, Chas Smith. These creations painted the unearthly soundscapes of Dune and Interstellar, sang heroic anthems for Man of Steel and The Hunger Games, and textured terrors throughout the Saw film franchise.
All told, this collection delivers 600+ textures, tones, and pads—organic and synthesised in Solar, our new eDNA-powered plug-in.
Mercury was built with the idea that truly unique instruments should sound organic, not artificial. A bespoke collection of the most amazing, transcendent, and haunting musical textures and tones that you will ever find.
Chas Smith has managed to create artistic evocative metallic sculptures that also happen to be the secret ingredient in the iconic scores of Hans Zimmer’s Interstellar, Dune and Dunkirk, and in Charlie Clouser’s Saw.
This library combines two dynamic forces: Mercury and Solar. One, a collection of pure, organic sounds; the other, a tool for reinventing them. The most up-to-date iteration of our eDNA technology, Solar is the host to Mercury’s organic ethereal samples and the eDNAs extensive warp and preset library.
Within Solar, you will find the expansive soundscape Mercury, a world built around 14 unique handmade instruments like no other. The Bertoia, Sceptre, Pez Eater, and Que Lastas (just to name a few) have had lasting impressions on some of Hollywood’s leading luminaries. The Que Lastas in particular has an entertaining story. Charlie Clouser upon hearing it for the first time was moved to tears.
The dedicated plugin is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3, AU and AXX.
