BERNARD HERRMANN COMPOSER TOOLKIT

ORCHESTRAL INNOVATION INSPIRED BY A LEGEND

$499

Spitfire’s first dry scoring stage ensemble library, inspired by the electric genius of Bernard Herrmann. Renowned for his groundbreaking scores including Citizen Kane, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Psycho, Vertigo and Taxi Driver, his legacy continues to inspire the work of composers today. We’ve worked exclusively with Bernard Herrmann’s estate to curate and assemble a unique set of studio orchestra ensembles, informed directly by the composer’s legendary orchestration aesthetic. Recorded at Studio 1 Air Lyndhurst by Simon Rhodes (Avatar, Grand Budapest Hotel, Spectre, Harry Potter, There Will Be Blood), we’ve captured players performing as Herrmann would have had them – boisterous, lively and upfront, with patches featuring selected groups, unusual instrumental combis, chords, effects and much more. Fire-up this versatile Toolkit for lively and distinctive scoring.

LONDON CONTEMPORARY ORCHESTRA STRINGS

ULTRA MODERN STRINGS

$349

Everything you need to make cutting-edge strings music. There is a shift in string writing that is becoming a global movement - based on innovative techniques and performance styles, it’s notoriously impossible to program with the tools currently available. We’ve partnered with the London Contemporary Orchestra, whose work with the likes of Radiohead and Jed Kurzel (Alien: Covenant) has contributed significantly to this shift, to create a string library that gives you access to this unique, experimental palette. This library contains multi-sampled violin, viola, cello and bass sections, and has been recorded at our dry stage in London. With a host of dynamically controllable, never-before-sampled articulations, this rich set of diverse recordings are both playable and musical, and will transform your work.

ALBION V TUNDRA

AT THE EDGE OF SILENCE

$449

Capturing the Scandinavian zeitgeist, we've sampled a 100-piece orchestra playing never-before-sampled techniques at the very edge of silence. Alongside orchestral content are bellows, percussion and a characterful warped synth section. Everything you need to take it down a degree or two!

Well, mostly poor after an expensive end to the year, so hoping for a nice deal on Tundra.
OACE and BDT as backup to that otherwise. :)

London COS (regretted not getting it in last year's wishlist sale, so this might be the one I go for)
EVO Grids 1 & 2
Albion III (it's currently on sale, so I doubt it will get a further discount...we'll see)
 
Albion IV Uist
Albions Collection*
Eric Whitacre Choir**

It seems I'm on an aleatoric and choir bender this holiday season, having already added Symphonic Shadows and CAGE Brass in the former category, and Dominus and Lacrimosa in the latter.

* I added the collection just in case I can combine a wish list discount with the discount I would get for already owning all of the Albions outside of IV, in case that might beat an individual wish list discount for Uist.

** I'm unlikely to get this since I don't expect the discount to be large enough on such a recent library to push me into it ... but it is on my list anyway, just in case I might be surprised.
