Maybe this is a good idea/hint for a future Spitfire Library release.
Well +1 for Albion Loegria. I love the sound of this library! Perfect for any fantasy game. Check out Christian Hensons Demos on the SF site. Tundra could also work nicely. As would the Olafur Arnalds Toolkit and the Evos.Hi all,
I am getting on a fantasy game soundtrack endeavor and after evaluating on hand choices I am seemingly lacking in textural woodwinds department. Hollywoodwinds is great, Symphobias will be handy as well, but what Spitfire product will do me justice - Tundra, Masse, Evogrid 4 or maybe UIST? All the walkthroughs are on my watching list, but please share your Spitfire fantasy writing experiences if you have any. Thanks.

Woodwind Evos from Spitfire could help you with textural passages. And some of the most used instruments in my template are the Labs instruments. Great quirky stuff in there that inspires you to do your own stuff.
sorry to ask what is the swarms?
would you advice some? thksSpitfire's regular lineup is perfect for this kind of music. If you want it to feel a bit more contemporary it helps to add some pulses or synths or something, but you really don't have to do that to get the "classic" fantasy sound. You'll need a choir too, naturally, but there are good ones out there.
would you advice some?
Symphonic Strings, Symphonic Brass, Symphonic Woodwinds and Spitfire Percussion (the Joby Burgess library). If you have a lot of money, other libraries such as harp, specialty mallets (there are some in the percussion library already, but the specialty ones are more detailed), and even some of the more epic percussion like HZ can be useful.
If you are poor, instead consider East West's Hollywood series, which is far less expensive and still sounds absolutely great (strings, brass, winds, percussion). You don't even have to buy it all immediately if you want to try it for a few months using their subscription service, "Composer Cloud."
I do love Spitfire but I also use East West and many others all the time.
[note: I have received free products from East West]
3 seperate libraries or as a bundle.
Also a vote for Lumina, they have sales from time to time at 30% off.
Watch the walkthrough videos to get an idea of what's in there.
