Spitfire Audio releases Symphonic Strings Evolutions for Kontakt Player

Spitfire Audio has released Spitfire Symphonic Strings Evolutions, which applies the company's Evo Grid technology to the session recordings for its Spitfire Symphonic Strings library.

Spitfire Audio Director Paul Thomson has this to say: "The idea behind this was that quite often you need to create music which has a feeling of evolution — a feeling of movement and excitement, shimmer, and all of that kind of stuff, but the director doesn't want you to do anything. They say, 'We want music that doesn't really do anything, but want it to evolve — want it to feel like there is a growing tension or some pressure or something.' So these evolutions have been orchestrated by Ben Foskett. Each of them have an individual concept, and then they're recorded over the entire keyboard in groups — Cells — with a 60-piece string orchestra in the hall at AIR Lyndhurst — beautiful, massive, lush sound. You get a really interesting texture developing, so these do sound quite different from our other Evo Grid products, which are smaller string sections, so sound a bit more gritty and in your face. This is a more widescreen and a kind of lush sound, but yet you still have those really interesting textures that develop when you have a group of players who are all following the instructions, but all timing things slightly differently."

Since Spitfire Symphonic Strings Evolutions was recorded during the same session as its Spitfire Symphonic Strings sibling, it features the same 60 string players (16 1st Violins, 14 2nd Violins, 12 Violas, 10 Cellos, and eight Basses) performing 48 Evos orchestrated by concert composer Ben Foskett. All are performed in situ as they would be in a major scoring session, captured in Lyndhurst Hall within London's AIR Studios using the same high-class equipment — valve and ribbon mics, Neve 'AIR Montserrat' preamps into a Neve 88R large-scale console, all recorded at 96kHz via a 2-inch Studer tape machine — to create an emotive and musical library that is rich in both beautiful and tense symphonic string parts.

Spitfire Symphonic Strings Evolutions can be purchased and downloaded (as 36.6 GB of uncompressed .WAV files, featuring 4,703 samples) for a time-limited introductory promo price of £229.00 (inc. VAT) / $249.00 / €259.00 (inc. VAT) until Thursday, August 31, 2017 — rising thereafter to an MSRP of £269.00 (inc. VAT) / $299.00 / €309.00 (inc. VAT).
