The microphone placements are Close, Tree, Ambient and Outrigger. The end result of this component is as inspiring, mossy, and earthy as the rest of the library. Each has its own user interface and soundscapes, but more on that bellow. Something that has become quite fashionable with certain media and film soundtracks is the inclusion of long and evolving textures, some of which might be electronic, but others which might draw on an acoustic starting point, and that is where Albion V — Tundra might be of great use. An obvious plus right out the gate is that owners of previous Spitfire libraries should be able to blend Tundra into their other libraries seamlessly. Using the Albion V Tundra orchestral samples — transformed into 32 drones, Spitfire has created an instrument with slowly evolving drones and textures with limitless potential.
We knew we wanted the strings to have a frozen sheen to them. That doesn't happen with your regular Sul Tasto, Flautando, etc. Highlights alongside these cascading longs articulations are flautando legatos, brushed shorts and some extraordinary loose pizzicatos where only the principals were in possession of the click track! Silence is, indeed, golden, it seems… well, almost! Returning back to London we set about recording an enormous orchestra - but not in a style steeped in the choral tradition, echoing angelic angels from above. I decided to go for it mainly for the brass and wind content since the sale was too good now. Samples we believe that have never been made before.
That companies like Spitfire Audio continue to create high-quality samples for much niche applications around soundtracking and cinematic compositions is a true boon to composers and musicians everywhere. Alongside orchestral content are bellows, percussion and a characterful warped synth section. Albion V Tundra delivers subtlety in a powerful way and can conjure a plethora of emotions when applied with care. For many years now Spitfire Audio has been recording orchestras of all sizes, but a theme that has run throughout our last decade is how to unearth and discover more naked and honest performance styles. Well, everything save a throw away portion of the recordings where Christian had requested for the players to perform on the knife edge between the bellow hissing, and the reeds actually sounding. Well, everything save a throw away portion of the recordings where Christian had requested for the players to perform on the knife edge between the bellow hissing, and the reeds actually sounding. With 32 evolutions spread over 12 regions and the all important dice function to immediately randomise your preset into a near infinite number of possible outcomes.
? In what can only be described as a sonic odyssey, the Spitfire crew has travelled northern climes to research, discover and unearth the most naked, honest and glacial set of samples we have recorded to date. But if that's what you want out of the box you won't find it in this lib. Well, that's all I can say right now about the orchestral stuff. The groove percussion is a bonus, but better groove stuff can be found elsewhere, from the usual companies that are better known for such content. But if you are looking for a great cinematic orchestral sound, this one is right up your alley. Silken mode is almost pad-like in its swells, and High Harmonic Trems add natural movement and suspense, with very human flourishes.
It was as if it seeped out of the moss in the ground. The Main section offers plenty of sustained notes, with the usual Spitfire elements of humanistic quality and atmospheric noise, which makes every note sound that little bit different, sometimes with included imprecision, making for a more overall human performance. Didnt want to disturb the commercial thread. Each with its own set of articulations. But but then I also think that this is in part down to the nature of certain Western classical composition, much of which influences what occurs in the soundtrack world. Still sort of waiting for more specified reasons, although sale is over. While the Orchestral instruments take center stage for what the library has to offer, Albion V contains even more useful presets.
Last but not least there are three legato strings patches and six time machine shorts instrument patches that sum up the Albion V orchestra patch. Taking experience gained with our fantastically popular Trumpet Fields giveaway instrument, our instructions to all bands were to be naked, honest, and non-conservatoire, but also with very specific textural approaches that liven the hall to create a very natural mossy patina. I was amazed especially by multiphonic, overblown, and tratto articulations. Following from our hugely successful warped orchestral content in Albions 1 through 3 we decided to approach this set differently. Never to shy away from epic, we also felt it important to create some brooding epic drum combos designed for intermittent use to mark time or punctuate. The end result of this component is as inspiring, mossy, and earthy as the rest of the library.
There are enough articulations that would satisfy even a classically trained contemporary composer. You are right, not much information there, but I thought it was the best quick way to explain the biggest different with other orchestral libs.

Returning back to London we set about recording an enormous orchestra — but not in a style steeped in the choral tradition, echoing angelic angels from above. Hey, wasnt about your comments. We sought instead to create a sonic tapestry that was of this Earth.
The user interface is easy to use and enables us a complete control over the parameters. Beginning with the String section, comprised of 38 violins, 12 celli, and 6 basses, there are over 60 combined articulations. The brass instruments for high and low contain many of the same articulations of the woodlands but also have muted double tongue and granular flutter articulations. It does seem like a lot of stuff for the price, but I'm no expert. When creating the sound library Spitfire Audio has focused on sampling at the quietest levels possible to produce an amazing set of samples. Checked the online videos, and yea, sounds ok, but so do many other libraries. However, there are a variety of other compelling options out there, including the Orchestral Tools Berlin String library, and Cinesamples CineStrings library, both of which are broken into elements, allowing the user to purchase the sections they need to build up a larger palette, as and when required.
