New Sample Library Series with Timeless Synth Textures



Spitfire Audio augments accessible-to-all sample library series with timeless, broadcast-ready synth textures.

Spitfire Audio announces the availability of ORIGINALS CINEMATIC PADS — positioned as the eleventh entry in its ongoing ORIGINALS series of inspiring sample libraries making rare and classic instruments accessible to all, this time offering electronic sounds for the first time as a diverse range of classic, broadcast-ready synth textures made entirely from stunning symphonic orchestral recordings originally captured to the highest standard in the hallowed (Lyndhurst) Hall at London’s legendary AIR Studios, skilfully remastered, updated, and presented in the sound-specializing British music technology company’s award-winning, easy-to-use plug-in as a ~2.7GB-sized, NKS (Native Kontrol Standard®) compatible offering with 23 presets made from 45 meticulously treated, processed, and warped pad sounds providing an exceptional sense of depth and timeless feel fit for widescreen settings.

23 presets — Bowed Glass, Cavernous Bellowing, Celestial Stops, Chatter Organ, Chilling Forest, Deep Churn, Dystopian Ruin, Euphoric Sandstorm, Falling Steam, Fluorescent Corridors, Frosty Exhale, Glacial Marimbium, Halcyon Strings, Midnight Waves, Mountaintop Wind, Nauseous Static, Pulsing Water, Roadside Crosstalk, Slow Reeds, Trembling Tension, Volcanic Beaches, Woodland Wind, and Windswept Vessel — are as inspirational in name as they are in use, while those three pads to which ORIGINALS CINEMATIC PADS (partly) owes its name can be best described as a dulcet pad created from orchestral samples, perfect for creating rich beds (Mellow); an ethereal pad, carefully chosen to pair with the Mellow pad (Bright); and a distant pad created using a range hardware reverbs with other outboard and effects by Spitfire Audio co-founder and award-winning composer Christian Henson — handy for creating atmospheric, ambient sound worlds (Cinematic). Continues Homay Schmitz: “The combination of those three pad sounds has been carefully curated so you get a really great balance between those sounds, giving you these really organic, lush, and full textures.”

ORIGINALS CINEMATIC PADS is available as an AAX-, AU-, VST2-, and VST3-compatible plug-in supporting Native Instruments’ NKS (Native Kontrol Standard®) for Mac (OS X 10.10 or later) and Windows (7, 8, and 10 — latest Service Pack) that loads directly into any compatible DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) for an RRP (Recommended Retail Price) of only £29.00 GBP (inc. VAT)/$29.00 USD/€29.00 EUR (inc. VAT) — from here:
