    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 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...
