Spitfire’s Definitive Range endeavours to offer the world a one-stop shop for classic and esoteric instruments played by the greats. As all these instruments are recorded in situ, in the same room, they’re designed to lock together sonically whether it be some timpani from the percussion range coupled with your Sable libraries. Or indeed a more curious band made up of the HG20, a plucked piano and a harp, it is designed to sound like they’re together in the same room. We provide a series of fantastic mixing options that allow you to dry stuff up or make it more ambient should you so wish, whilst preserving the acoustic integrity and perspective of a slavishly recalled microphone set up and room configuration. The instruments are all deep sampled but designed to play easily out-of-the-box, with easy integration into larger arrangements and templates without risk of demanding too much from your system resources. Recorded by Jake Jackson at Lyndhurst Hall – Air Studios, on one of the finest scoring stages in the world, through an array of priceless vintage microphones via Neve “Montserrat” pre-amps, to a beautifully serviced Studer 2” tape machine and then into digital at 96k via the best Prism AD converters: this is an unparalleled signal chain.
Our player Paul Clarvis is an institution unto himself having performed on countless blockbuster movies with a very special relationship being formed over decades working as part of Hans Zimmer’s company of percussionists. Clarvis was also charged with the unenviable position of leading the London Olympics seminal drum corps; an infamous part of the opening ceremony. Clarvis not only brings his technical prowess to every session, he also brings a zealous spirit of generous collaboration to get the best out of any set of recordings.
The instrument we have dubbed Aluphone is a two and a half octave chromatic array of aluminium bells usually played with marimba mallets. As per our ‘deep sampling’ code we have recorded the Aluphone with a selection of beaters both damped and sustained with a broad selection of dynamic layers and round robins. We’ve then coupled this with our easy to use GUI which gives you instant access to the many different mic selections available to mix together. From intimate and close to distant our interface allows you to instantly customise what we have recorded to suit the magic you’re making!
