Spitfire Audio Release Originals: Orchestra

Spitfire Audio have released Originals: Orchestra, an cinematic orchestral starter pack, available for £99.00 / $99.00.

Originals Orchestra is the perfect starting point for anyone taking their first steps writing with an orchestral library. A comprehensive collection of five essential libraries featuring strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion, pads and piano – all you need to instantly create cinematic scores, rich sonic compositions and modern sounding productions. Whether you’re a beginner composer, a seasoned producer looking to expand your cinematic orchestral skills or a fan of Spitfire Audio’s Originals range looking to expand your collection.

Five Originals selections – four of which have been recorded in the reverberant acoustics of AIR Studios, London – an ideal next step for those who own BBCSO Discover or the LABS series of free virtual instruments, or for those who are not quite ready to get Spitfire Audio’s top tier libraries, such as the BBCSO Pro or the Albion and Abbey Road ranges.
