Spitfire Audio’s Symphonic Strings now available

You can go as detailed as musically desired with each individual string section.

Symphonic Strings is a consolidation of almost a decade’s worth of sampling experience.

Spitfire Audio has announced the availability of Spitfire Symphonic Strings.

The firm dubs its new software “the ultimate encyclopaedic compendium of symphonic strings sampling”.

The new offering features blockbuster content originally recorded via the finest signal path at Lyndhurst Hall within London’s legendary Air Studios, playing host to the same 60 star string players performing on the same instruments featured on so many memorable scores recorded there for films that have grossed billions between them.

“If you want the blockbuster sound then you have to boldly go where no sample-based virtual instrument-maker has gone before; if you want to sound cinematic then, simply speaking, you have to go big,” explained Spitfire.

“By its very nature, then, when it comes to symphonic strings sampling, it doesn’t get much bigger than Spitfire Symphonic Strings.”

Symphonic Strings is a consolidation of almost a decade’s worth of sampling experience, befriending London’s finest string players and through a process of kaizen – that can be tracked through over 20 unique strings libraries that Spitfire Audio has created during that time.

By rationalising what was previously provided across four separate volumes, Spitfire Symphonic Strings is now an encyclopaedic compendium of symphonic strings sampling. Every articulation for every section (plus ensembles) formerly featured in BML308 Mural - Symphonic Strings Vol. 1, BML309 Mural - Symphonic Strings Vol. 2, BML310 Mural - Symphonic Strings Vol. 3, and BML311 Mural - Symphonic Strings - Ensembles are all present and accounted for in Symphonic Strings.

This includes 16 1st violins, 14 2nd violins, 12 violas, 10 cellos and eight basses, which have been sampled with over 175 articulations, including 59 shorts, 94 longs, and five legato patches programmed by UK composer Andrew Blaney.

Also included in addition to each individual string section is a comprehensive selection of articulations and techniques presented in an Ensembles format for sketching and composing.

This means you can go as detailed as musically desired with each section individually or dive in with those carefully curated Ensembles tools to allow for broad brush strokes.

Spitfire Symphonic Strings can be purchased and digitally downloaded (as 147.6 GB of uncompressed .WAV files, featuring 89,365 samples) from Spitfire Audio for a time-limited introductory promo price of £525.00 until 08:00 GMT on November 30, 2016 — rising thereafter to an RRP of £699.00 GBP.
