Spitfire Audio has announced availability of Albion One 10th Anniversary Edition — effectively celebrating its tenth year in business by refreshing and rebadging its Albion One composer toolkit flagship as an updated edition, expanded beyond the British music technology company's relatively recent 'One' re-recordings of its initial Albion 'legacy' sample library release thanks to a new UI (User Interface) design, NKS (Native Kontrol Standard) support, 15 new Albion Orchestra patches, punchier mixes of Darwin Percussion, plus 63 new Stephenson's Steam Band sounds and 67 presets personally created by Spitfire Audio co-founder and composer Christian Henson himself alongside 78 new Brunel Loops recordings across 8th, 16th, and 12th rhythmic patterns.
Albion One 10th Anniversary Edition can be purchased and digitally downloaded (as 87.3 GB of uncompressed .WAV files, featuring 47,233 samples) for a time-limited introductory promo price of £299.00 (inc. VAT) / $349.00 / €349.00 (inc. VAT) until January 11, 2018 — rising thereafter to an MSRP of £399.00 (inc. VAT) / $449.00 / €449.00 (inc. VAT) — from www.spitfireaudio.com/shop/a-z/albion-one (Existing Albion One owners automatically receive Albion One 10th Anniversary Edition for free while Albion 'legacy' owners can cross-grade now for £99.00 / $99.00 / €99.00)
Albion One 10th Anniversary Edition needs Native Instruments' free Kontakt Player (5.6.8) — included in the purchase — to run as a fully NKS (NATIVE Kontrol STANDARD) supporting plug-in instrument for Mac (OS X 10.10, 10.11, or macOS 10.12 — latest update) or Windows (7, 8, or 10 — latest Service Pack, 32/64-bit), while Spitfire Audio's free Download Manager application allows anyone to buy now and download anytime.
