Spitfire Audio is back once again with an incredibly expansive, fantastic-sounding new library dubbed the Spitfire Chamber Strings Essentials. The essentials library is a streamlined version of the Spitfire Chamber Strings and was recorded at London’s AIR Studios, which you might recognize as the studio where soundtracks for The Dark Knight and Inception were recorded.
The Spitfire Chamber Strings Essentials offers 53 techniques – 18 shorts, 12 longs, 18 trills and trems, and five legatos – with 16 world-class London string players, close and tree mic signals, and individual sections available to use.
“The word ‘chamber’ describes any ensemble smaller than a symphony orchestra — anything from a quartet to 40 players,” wrote Spitfire. “Our aim was to create the definitive chamber strings project, giving you that highly sought-after widescreen blockbuster sound, with detail, intimacy and focus — hard to achieve with larger-sized string sample libraries.”
Spitfire Chamber Strings Essentials is available here for $249 alongside Spitfire Chamber Strings and Spitfire Chamber Strings Professional libraries.
