SPITFIRE AUDIO Studio Strings Professional

Ever in the pursuit of the perfect string sound, Spitfire Audio’s latest presentation gets the dry treatment. Dave Gale takes a flight onboard Air Studio One


If there’s one common criticism of many cinematic and orchestral libraries, it is that composers and producers want to have greater control of their acoustic. They don’t want to be bound to the recorded environment of a space, whether it’s a pleasant sounding acoustic or not, and that is where the pursuit of the perfect studio-bound string sound begins.


I think it’s fair to say that Spitfire has a great relationship with Air Studios, as can be seen by the majority of their orchestral offerings, where the players placement has, for the most part, been within the beautiful space of the Lyndhurst Hall. Wonderful as this space is, it’s not to everyone’s taste and there are bound to be some professionals who might immediately steer away from some Spitfire libraries, purely because they would prefer a drier acoustic. Sadly, this can never quite be replicated by simply reducing the amount of room acoustic which has been sampled, but Spitfire has a solution. The company has kicked off a new series of libraries (with more to follow in the coming months) which are based at the lesser known, but equally appealing, Air Studio One, a space which offers a drier dimension for today’s producers and soundtrack composers.
