Legendary plugin makers SPITFIRE AUDIO have recently announced the release of a brand-new line of instruments under the ORIG!NALS series name, starting with the new EPIC STRINGS plugin! The wallet-friendly yet powerful tool sports a meticulously captured string section at AIR Studios, which is the hallowed host to an abundance of blockbuster film scoring sessions. The sounds are simplified and condensed into the easy-to-use plugin format (supporting AAX, AU, VST2, and VST3 formats).

Some of the features include:

  • Symphonic string section — London’s best string players
  • Recorded at London’s AIR Studios, home of blockbuster film scores
  • Available in our free standalone plug-in
  • Close, Room & Stretch signals
  • 11 essential articulations
  • ~2.4GB

From Spitfire:

“As a symphonic-sized, 60-strong string section of London’s best players professionally recorded in the hallowed (Lyndhurst) Hall at London’s legendary AIR Studios, EPIC STRINGS serves up 11 appetising articulations — Live, incorporating shorts and longs into a single playable patch proffering ease of writing; Short; Short Ostinato; Short (Octave); Pizzicato; Long; Long (Octave); Long (Slow); Long CS; Long CS (Octave); and Long CS (Slow) — alongside three tasty signal settings — Room, a combination of Tree, Ambient, and Outrigger mics; Close, adds definition to the Room signal; and Stretch, a stretched version of the Room, creating an ambient, synth-like texture — to form a 2.44 GB download-sized cinematic instrument plug-in par excellence. Clearly clutter-free and focused, it includes easy-to-use REVERB, RELEASE, and TIGHTNESS controllers, together with simple sliders for level and dynamics adjustment, and a large ‘knob’ for additional control of the three aforesaid controllers. If you will like to become an expert in one instruments check mobilemusicphilly.com for a Free Music Lesson you will sure fulfill your dreams. Helpfully, however, EPIC STRINGS can be quickly customized to the personal workflow of any user — ultimately, for instance, including whether Help text is displayed at the bottom of the plug-in’s perfectly formed UI (user interface)!”
