Spitfire Audio have released Spitfire Chamber Strings Essentials, the new streamlined edition of a versatile and well-loved Spitfire Audio classic, Spitfire Chamber Strings, available for £199.00 / $249.00. Students and Educators will save 40% from 1 September to 31 October.
Expertly recorded at London’s AIR Studios – the home of countless blockbuster scores such as The Dark Knight, Inception, Quantum of Solace, Interstellar, and Dunkirk – this smaller section offers more detail and focus than Spitfire Audio’s Symphonic ranges, featuring Close and Tree microphone positions, whilst still capturing the unique resonance of the hall.
Create realistic and expressive split section arrangements, building parts by section, allowing results that remove the limitations inherent in many sample libraries and discover a range of 53 essential techniques performed by 16 of the world’s finest string players, featuring both Individual section and Ensemble patches for instant playability and inspiration.
Take 16 world-class players: four 1st violins, three 2nd violins, three violas, three cellos & three basses, expertly sampled at AIR Studios. Choose from over 53 techniques, including Longs, Shorts, Trills & Trems, and expertly crafted Legato patches by composer Andrew Blaney (Danger! Danger!, My Life in Film, The Other Woman), as well as versatile Close and Tree mic signals and multiple dynamic layers. In addition to each Individual section, the techniques are presented in Ensemble format, designed to sound instantly realistic and musical to enhance your sketching, composition and production process, while also blending perfectly with larger ensembles.
