New Cinematic Percussion Library, Resonate



Spitfire Audio releases Resonate in collaboration with Dame Evelyn Glennie as a cinematic percussion library that really resonates like no other.

Created in close collaboration with (Dame) Evelyn Glennie, the world’s premier solo percussionist, Spitfire Audio released RESONATE as a cinematic percussion library – unlocking the other-worldly mystery, magic, and tension of orchestral percussion’s power of resonance, realized from tuned and untuned instruments colliding across 14 signals, then spinning out towards new frontiers of texture, tone, and dimension as hits, strikes, and spine-tingling scrapes giving way to essential cinematic reverberations. Carefully captured in the hallowed (Lyndhurst) Hall at London’s legendary AIR Studios.

THUNDERSHEET — think razor-sharp crescendos, hollow gongs, and quivering cries — and WATERTANK — with thin crashes, deep quakes, and organically pitch-shifting resonators — are also available, likewise paired, stacked, struck, and bowed with many other co-resonating instruments to create an unparalleled collection of cinematic hits, scrapes, textures, and tones. Thereafter, those 49 techniques and pairings — launched themselves towards infinite layers of dimension — are sent by RESONATOR down 14 possible signal paths, both organic and treated, including seven unique mic perspectives (such as underwater placement, contact mics attached to resonating chambers, and boundary mics spread throughout Lyndhurst Hall), before being filtered through six possible after-effects, including a stretch feature for long sustained sounds (solely), allowing users to change the playback SPEED of the sample. Well worth mentioning is RESONATOR’s GRID mode, making for a welcomed collaborative tool, whereby users can discover and combine thousands of sound permutations to create a sonorous ensemble of endless inspiration.

RESONATE is available as an AAX-, AU-, VST2-, and VST3-compatible, NKS (NATIVE KONTROL STANDARD®)-ready plug-in that loads directly into a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) for a time-limited promo price of £149.00 GBP (inc. VAT)/$179.00 USD/€179.00 EUR (inc. VAT) until June 30, 2022 — returning thereafter to its RRP (Recommended Retail Price) of £199.00 GBP (inc. VAT)/$249.00 USD/€249.00 EUR (inc. VAT) — from HERE:
