Spitfire Studio Strings takes you straight to the heart of our most pristine orchestral library to date: 148 articulations across the full 30-piece string section (184.108.40.206.4), from soaring legato and our signature whispering super-flautando, right down to spiccato, hairpins, grace notes, and FX. Immediately usable, instantly compelling.
The Professional edition of the library offers all of this and more, opening the door to peerless detail and control — 5 extra mics, 2 extra mixes, large band (220.127.116.11.4) and divisi for each section
We were determined to go the extra mile and offer divisi (half sections) in the Pro library, which empowers a new level of modular control. Your string orchestra is now configurable from the fibrous intimacy of dual four-piece 1st violin sections, three-piece 2nds, three-piece violas and three-piece cellos (18.104.22.168) up to the rich power of 22.214.171.124.4 – a combination of the main sections (including basses) plus two divisi.
In addition to an all-embracing 232 articulations, you can access and personalise your mix of the full microphone armoury of Simon Rhodes — six different setups, from pin-sharp to super-wide, picked up by the best from Neumann, Schoeps, Sennheiser and others.
Simon Rhodes was an obvious choice for our entirely new Studio orchestra range — a microphone magician with multiple Grammy awards to his name, and a senior engineer at Abbey Road Studios. He has worked at the highest level in film score recording, having been James Horner’s go-to engineer for 18 years. Blockbuster movies such as Avatar, Skyfall and Spectre have also had the Rhodes treatment.
