Hans Zimmer Strings £699

The latest library from Spitfire Audio brings us a string section of epic proportions with help from one of the biggest names in film. Dave Gale gets cinematic…


Contact Spitfire Audio |

Known for his innovative approach to contemporary scoring, much of Hans Zimmer’s work embraces technology, combining the use of synthesisers and sampling alongside live players, in order to achieve his signature soundscapes. It’s with this in mind that sampling supremos Spitfire Audio have teamed up with Hans to offer a new package that’s on a truly grand scale.


Before we can get stuck in, we have to go through the download process – and that may take a while…With 183Gb to download, it took us a whole day for installation, although there is an option to purchase the library on a drive from Spitfire, so if you’re not blessed with the best download speed, this will certainly appeal.

Once installed, the first thing that you will notice is that this is not the usual Kontakt-based library - the format which Spitfire normally adopt - but a new bespoke plug-in which has been designed with the help of design and user experience agency, UsTwo.

Key features

344 String players

Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass sections

Myriad of Mic Positions

Huge range of dynamics

About MusicTech

Though it was only a few issues ago that we contemplated the future of music, we came to the realisation that the future is now! With more effects at our disposal than ever before, we tour the modern arsenal of plug-in effects, tools and software that you might not even realise existed! Elsewhere, we speak to the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff about his production and DJing ethos, and join Detroit-based artist Klayton, whose love of 80s electronic and metal bands has borne many fruitful projects, not to mention an amazing studio. We put Hans Zimmer Strings to the test, as well as a slew of new pieces of gear and software in our expanded reviews section. Additionally, there’s 4 new tutorials for Live, Logic, Cubase and Pro Tools, brand-new tips, retrospectives and our Essential Guide series draws to a close with a 101 to recording. We hope you enjoy the issue!
