After the masterful simplicity of the Albion – epic 'out-of-the-box' orchestral ensembles and the finely crafted detail and beauty of the Sable chamber string range, Spitfire at last are creating the ultimate symphonic-sized detailed string collection as part of their comprehensive British Modular Range. Spitfire's long term project to create the greatest sounding, deepest sampled and ultimately future proofed living orchestral virtual instruments collection on the planet today.

As with Spitfire's entire BML range, Mural features the best musicians working in London today playing rarefied and priceless instruments. The English Session Orchestra comprise the finest session musicians on the London scene, all of whom have played on the majority of A-list movies recorded here – a healthy mix of seasoned session players interspersed with international soloists, high-profile chamber musicians and emerging young talent. Recorded by Jake Jackson at Air Studios, one of the finest recording studios in the world and host to film scores including Gladiator, Inception, The Batman Tryptic, Harry Potter, James Bond and countless top selling classical recordings, Mural has been recorded through a selection of rarefied microphones, via Neve Montserrat pre-amps, through the world's largest Neve 88R desk onto a finely maintained Studer 2" tape machine (the only orchestral library on the market to be recorded first to tape) and finally to 96k 24-bit digital via high end Prism AD converters.

All the players are recorded in situ and mixed carefully with the correct perspective and placing so that they lock together which each and every BML module as if they were all in the same room together when recording. This means that when you start putting sections together it simply works. No mixing, panning, or careful manipulation of reverbs is required to create ultra realistic true sounding mockups, demos and masters. It is designed for ease of use and instant satisfaction with numerous mic positions and essential Jake Jackson mixes to give you options to change the character of the recording, and apply the Mural sound to any number of applications.

Mural offers a grand 60 piece string band (16,14,12,10,8) but is recorded and performed in such a way as to provide you with ultimate detail. It is not an epic dirgy sludge of trailer-making strings. It is pure in its detail and beauty and is designed to encourage and inspire you to write better orchestral music for your canon.

Mural also features many scripting and sampling innovations developed when producing our seminal Sable range and comes with the full feature set and intuitive GUI developed for the whole of the BML range. As you would expect with BML, Mural will feature a comprehensive selection of microphone perspectives and labour saving Jake Jackson mixes. Mural also has some additional expression features including intensity, tightness and control of release triggers to give even more human elements and a further ability to tweak.

Will require a full version of Kontakt 4 or 5 to run.

Hmmm. Why are you comparing piano libraries from Cinesamples to Mural from Spitfire? Are you from Cinesamples?

First of all, I'm kind of questioning whether or not you know how to use the library. I have a lot of the "free" libraries from Spitfire, and even they are extremely useful and very organic and real sounding (especially the mini harp, scary strings, and soft piano). I do own EDNA and find the library immense and creative, and have gotten a lot of compliments on the sound when using the library in works. I cannot comment on any of their full orchestral libraries. The demos make my mouth water though. Now that you mention Cinesamples, I have paid quite a bit of money on their libraries, including their Percussion library Drums of War and Orchestrator tool CineOrch. I have not been that impressed, especially with their percussion stuff. Drums of War is way overpriced --there is hardly anything to it. Worth more like 20USD, not 100USD. CineOrch, similarly has barely anything to it, which makes its utilization limited --though it does sound decent. I don't know, from demos and personal experience I think I'm going to lean towards Spitfire and attribute your review with user error.
