Ever had that feeling that the track youre working on just sounds too nice. Ever had an A&R man, or a director/ producer say nice track, good composition, it just needs to be more edgy. Herein may lie the solution.
SPITFIRE PRESENTS PYLONS!
Back in Christian Hensons dance days working with the likes of LTJ Bukem and the Freestylers, a term was coined to describe how to best [email protected] up a beautiful sonic landscape that had maybe got a bit flowery or intelligent. An escape route for anything sounding too Chesney would often be just sling a couple of pylons on the track and it will be fine....
Christian has teamed up here with top production duo The Flight (Lana Del Ray, Bjork, Orbital, Rufus Wainwright) to create a definitive collection of phrases, squeaks, bleeps, hits and FX from their enormous selection of classic vintage synths. With each instrument they have discussed and defined what that synth does best. Recorded in Super Mono via the most pristine Neve line amps and Cranesong AD converters, the team has created a number of parallel mono signals that can be switched in and out or mixed and assigned to different outputs. These include, dry, saturated, circuit bent and a live - and temperamental, classic spring reverb signal path. With a selection of specially selected, in-the-box mono->stereo effects, modulation and filters to warp the signal further.
In this release release of 3.1 GB (lossless compressed from over 6GB of raw WAV files) from over 3800 samples - synthesisers featured include classic Juno 60, JX3P, MS10, ProOne, SEM, and a Moog.
Spitfire is a collective of award winning composers and technologists. We dont just record and build samples we go further than that. We produce with great pride every single note, ushering the best out of the musician and curate each product with a set of articulations, sounds and performances that we know will give you the definitive take of this wonderful anthology. We engage our specialists not only as performers, but as technical advisers to give us a consensus based on experience of what most composers want out of them, what DEFINES the instrument.
Part of the Producer Portfolio which answers repeated requests for drier sounding more manipulatable samples, for more non-orchestral material, and for libraries that are affordable to all. Recorded by the Spitfire team in a number of smaller but excellent London studios, including the new Spitfire HQ in Kings Cross and their old favourite, the classic vintage studio Air-Edel in Marylebone. With a useful selection of classic/ vintage, modern, broad and room microphones, the Producer Portfolio features the talents of legendary musicians, producers, composers and programmers. With Spitfires existing orchestral and definitive ranges, were very proud of the impression that the hall at Air studios gives, but its not right for every application. With this new range, we have recorded in smaller spaces, close, mid range and room perspectives with carefully positioned, fine, A class mics and pres to give you the raw materials you need to make these sounds your own.
