What Is Albion One From Spitfire Audio
Its a cinematic scoring tool that has a 109-piece orchestra and a cinematic percussion section at your fingertips, expertly recorded with world-class musicians and engineers at the world-famous Hall at AIR Studios, where many blockbuster film scores are recorded like Interstellar, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean.
This collection has been recorded using priceless ribbon and valve mics through Neve Montserrat preamps and the largest 88R Neve console in the world, recorded onto pristine 2” tape, then converted with the finest Prism AD converters at 96k.
You will be able to discover a range of playing techniques: long notes, short notes, tremolos, pizzicatos, and our renowned string legatos, which combine adjoining samples, where a single note triggers the recording of a section playing phrases. Each of these techniques has been captured across a range of notes, and by section (brass low, mid and high, woods high and low, and strings), giving you the flexibility to program or perform your orchestral compositions with plenty of control.
This collection also includes wrapable loops and an enormous steam synthesizer to help take your orchestral writing to new dimensions. It has been designed for first timers and established composers and producers alike.
There are four mic positions (close, tree, outriggers, and ambient) to suit the type of music you’re writing and the scale you want to achieve. There is also an 'ostinatum' designer that allows you to instantly create exciting, tense or action-packed rhythmic passages.
Built to work with Native Instrument’s Kontakt Player, it’s also NKS-ready, pre-mapped and ready to play, with light guides for visual key switches, splits and mapping feedback, and hardware library browsing.
