Spitfire Audio, purveyors of the finest virtual instruments from the finest musical samples in the world, is proud to announce availability of SPITFIRE SYMPHONIC WOODWINDS with a decade of woodwind virtual instrument-making experience going into creating this second-to-none conclusive compendium for Native Instruments’ industry-standard KONTAKT PLAYER platform, featuring the finest woodwind performers recorded and ‘deep sampled’ with no expense spared via the finest signal path at Lyndhurst Hall within London’s legendary Air Studios.
Concluding this year’s namesake symphonic sampling journey that has already seen Spitfire Audio recently releasing SPITFIRE SYMPHONIC BRASS and SPITFIRE SYMPHONIC STRINGS to widespread critical acclaim, as implied by name, SPITFIRE SYMPHONIC WOODWINDS represents the culmination of four years spent capturing the finest woodwind players performing in one of the finest recording locations Lyndhurst Hall within London’s legendary Air Studios, committing the (literally) breathtaking results to two-inch Studer tape using a stunning selection of vintage valve and ribbon microphones via Neve ‘AIR Montserrat’ preamps and a Neve 88R large-scale console before being digitally stored at 96k. And that’s only the start of an admirable approach to this latest long and winding road to sampling glory.
SPITFIRE SYMPHONIC WOODWINDS was originally released as multiple modules forming part of Spitfire Audio’s long-running BML (British Modular Library) — an ambitious project to create the greatest-sounding and, ultimately, future-proofed living orchestral virtual instruments collection, it really rationalises those numerous, deep-sampled components into an all-new file architecture along with many more improvements, including a whole host of new articulations adding an additional 30% of content in and of themselves to create an affordable entry into what its creators collectively consider to be the finest orchestral woodwinds library available anywhere today.
