Spitfire announces Symphonic Woodwinds virtual instrument

The new release represents the culmination of four years spent capturing the finest woodwind players.

Spitfire Audio has announced the availability of Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds – with a decade of woodwind virtual instrument-making experience going into creating the compendium.

Designed for Native Instruments’ Kontakt Player platform, the new software features the finest woodwind performers recorded and ‘deep sampled’ via the finest signal path at Lyndhurst Hall within London’s legendary Air Studios.

Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds represents the culmination of four years spent capturing the finest woodwind players.

Spitfire’s deep sampling exploits extend to walking through the less well trodden areas of the wood choir, including Alto Flute, Bass Flute, and Contrabass Clarinet.

Together with Bass Clarinet, Bass Flute, Bassoon Solo, Bassoons A2, Clarinet Solo, Clarinets A2, Contrabass Clarinet, Contrabassoon, Cor Anglais, Flute Solo, Flutes A2, Oboe Solo, Oboes A2, and Piccolo Flute, all feature multiple dynamics, vibrato control, numerous round robins, and a variety of traditional and more esoteric articulations.

Anyone looking for a spot of cheeky clarinet tongue flutter needs look no further, for Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds does it all.

Just like Symphonic Brass and Symphonic Strings before it, Symphonic Woodwinds comes complete with Native Instruments’ industry-standard Kontakt Player and also offers full compatibility with NKS (Native Kontrol Standard), an extended plug-in format allowing advanced integration with NI’s Kontrol keyboard controllers.

Cross-grading or buying into this core set of samples also affords an opportunity to purchase expansion packs with more mic positions – above and beyond the standard C (close), T (tree), and A (ambient) offerings – and stereo mixes.

Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds can be purchased and digitally downloaded (as 102.8 GB of uncompressed .WAV files, featuring 72,504 samples) from Spitfire Audio for a time-limited introductory promo price of £374 until 08:00 GMT on December 31, 2016 – rising thereafter to £499.
