    Spitfire BBCSO control surface for Cubase using TouchOSC on IOS and Android devices

    I recently invested in Spitfire’s BBCSO, and while it’s great to use, the interface leaves something to be desired in a number of departments. Some things – like tiny icons – I can’t do anything about, but I have addressed a few really common issues in a way that perhaps others might also find...

    The Master - BBC Strings

    Hi! 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...

    Hello all, 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. They can be...

    Spitfire Ambient Guitars | User Demo

    Here's a quick demo I just did with Spitfire Ambient Guitars. All sounds come from Ambient Guitars except for the sine bass, which comes from Albion III Iceni. I really like this library, and it's definitely a step up from Enigma 1, which I had previously.

    Spitfire Alternative Solo Strings Demo

    I think this is a great library for modern avant-garde material. Just have to play to its strengths. Next I want to see how Alternative Solo Strings sounds with LCO Strings. Wondering if they might be a match made in heaven for scratchy, dissonant stuff!

    Spitfire people: BML vs SSW/SSB

    I've noticed in the walkthroughs of the older BML libraries, that the outrigger-mics are included, while in the new "symphonic"-brand, they are not (only in expansion packs). Are there any other differences going on under the hood? Same samples, new GUI? Say f.ex Spitfire Audio - BML 101 Flute...
