I just wondering should I buy the Spitfire Audio Studio Orchestra Pro collection recently or wait until BF.
I‘m a student and now SF have the Student discount event currently.
Should I take it? It seems like spend $778
While browsing Google, i found this redesign of the Albion Iceni visual on the official website. May Spitfire Audio do a visual and acoustic redesign of this bank ?

Spitfire Audio have just uploaded to their YouTube channel, the film mentioned by @christianhenson at the end of the Albion Solstice presentation.
There is a download link for the film - Selene, in the description, together with instructions for uploading your own scoring of this...
I got my first paycheck from my summer job today AND Spitfire has a sale (the stars have aligned for me perhaps?). Well... you know how the story goes.
I'm looking for something ambient, especially something that could fill the background. I know the Swarms could fill this purpose but I'm...
I just uploaded my first proper video, and it's also my first ever bit of original music! I'd love to hear what you guys think of the video and music.
In the video, I go through my process of making this bit of music, and talk about some of the struggles along the way. Give it a watch if you'd...
Join us for the premiere of our latest Spitfire Audio x SA Recordings sample library release: Landfill Totems, created in collaboration with electronic innovator, Hainbach. Hainbach will also be on Live Chat throughout, so come and say hi!
I’ve recently been updating a ton of instruments from Spitfire in my Komplete Kontrol. Some of these are not strictly NKS but do respond to it. Others are not NKS responsive but are NKI files and should be available on the User side of KK and should load and play. Unfortunately, one of these...

While I know most of you like and use SSS a lot, I noticed that no one really talked about recurrent glitches in this library.
In Violins 1 & 2 Performance Legato, there's an irritating audio phase / panning issue when triggering different legato transitions with velocity.
If you play two...
Expires tomorrow - what’s the general consensus on how useful this library is?
Fairly tempted but I’d like to know if this works for more than just background padding for epic movie trailers. What say you, senior members and the like?
Are there more versatile choir libraries or is this *the* one?
I had a look around but because the Thread on both these products is 100 pages long, I did not find an answer -
Basically , I really love these two libraries- I have the Pro of SO and Abbey Road Foundations , but am finding them to be EXTREMELY cpu hungry. (Windows 10) Running off an...
I just really like the visuals of Spitfire Trailers and that one got me in a mood of writing. So I just took it, cut out the talking, left the beautiful pictures of nature in it and composed some music for it (unfortunately not with Albion Neo^^) I hope that is ok with the Spitfire team^^
Here's a demo using only the Eric Whitacre Choir from Spitfire. I scrapped this a couple years ago, then listened again tonight and thought, "I guess it's not that bad." I find the library difficult to use for convincing melodic content, but it's cool as a textural kit.
This is a Logic Pro template for Spitfire Audio's Abbey Road One: Orchestral Foundations sample library. It is similar to the template provided by Spitfire for their BBCSO libraries. It is attached to this post as a .zip file, and is also available on Github. It is distributed under the GPL v3...
Can you please recommend me some videos or courses (free or paid) that explain in detail how to build an orchestral template, routing etc.?
I use Cubase 10.5 and Spitfire Symphonic Orchestra plus some pianos and synths like Omnisphere, Zebra and Diva.
A while ago I made this mockup of Hans Zimmer's main title for The Rock. I love that theme and it was fun to re-create it! Here I show how I did it.
I have for a loooong time been thinking about making videos, but I am quite shy to talk on camera! Please let me know if this any good...
I always loved this classic theme and thought it would be fun to re-create it! Here it is:
- Spitfire Symphonic Orchestra
- East West Hollywood Brass
- East West Hollywood Percussion
- U-He Zebra
I also made a walkthrough where I go over each section in detail...
Hey all, hope you're all doing well!
I was curious as to the style of John Powell which I see most prominently in his Ice Age films so I took time to make a mockup of the track "Buck Returns" to really dive deep into his compositional style and how he uses all the sections of the orchestra.
EDIT: after posting, I found out this library will be updated in the coming weeks and I WILL revise this review where necessary after the updates. Contrary to what some people assume, I really do want to love this library/plug-in and am genuinely happy they are releasing these updates!

Hi, there! My first post. I decided to compare two libraries since many of you probably were wondering like I did if these two are similar or not at all for writing quartet music.
DISCLAMER: This track compares Sacconi String Quartet and Solo Strings. It was NOT played to the best...

I've posted a bit on here before about BBCSO (Core) and I've now decided why I'm not entirely satisfied with it. It's good for what it is, but it doesn't do EPIC, nor does it do really expressive and emotional; it just sits in the middle and can go louder and quieter, but doesn't do...
Spitfire Audio has released some templates for the BBC Orchestra.
Do you think they can also work for the Spitfire Symphonic Orchestra (+ Spitfire Percussion) ?
Thanks in advance for the advice!
I also ask @Spitfire Team @SpitfireSupport @christianhenson

Regarding the 160GB, 230GB sound library downloaded using the Spitfire Audio app, I am now in a crash state! Whether it is changing the download path of S3 or Clound, it is also very slow. 60KB ....... 100KB. My local network is without any problems. I have tried using a VPN. Fast VPN. Can't...

First time poster here. I thought I'd finally share something after really enjoying the VI:C community for about a year now. Here's a recent composition I made using the Olafur Arnalds Felt Piano. It's a short little piece i wrote on a whim.
I bought the OA Composer's Toolkit on...
I've had some time on my hands in the past couple of days and worked on this new piece. I really enjoyed using the strings in the other 2 projects and I wanted to see how they hold on their own. Well almost on their own. I used a bit of percussion as well to add some orchestral colour...

As much as I really love the chat and fun on other (much longer!) threads, perhaps it would help if we could have a thread only for people to post demos / mp3 / Soundcloud links and other audio files?
If we could even get to 10 or 20 demos, that woud be really great.

Hi! I need help setting up the microphones of each section of the Spitfire Symphonic Orchestra (with Spitfire Percussion, Spitfire Harp, Spitfire Solo Strings). I want to recreate the typical orchestral layout.
I'm looking for settings that have already been tested.
Can anyone help me? Thanks!
