Spitfire Audio Releases Abbey Road Orchestra: High Percussion



The percussion is high, presumably the percussionists weren’t when they recorded Spitfire’s latest sample library

Spitfire has earned a loyal following of people who get excited as soon as they even tease a new sample library release – usually for good reason. We reviewed their Charlie Clouser Hammers percussion library a few months ago, for example, and it’s more than lived up to the pre-release hyperventilation.

Here’s the short version of their release announcing Abbey Road Orchestra: High Percussion. For more detail, please watch their walkthrough video.

A meticulously curated selection of 62 percussive instruments performed by internationally renowned percussionist Joby Burgess and expertly captured in the legendary acoustic space that is Abbey Road Studio One. Focus on bringing life to your compositions with tailored features— such as soft takeover, voice choking and right/left hand mapping. Add a layer of unparalleled realism with a variety of beaters and playing styles.

The second instalment of Abbey Road Orchestra, the most detailed range of sample libraries we have ever created, High Percussion will be instantly familiar to Low Percussion users. Housed in the same Abbey Road Orchestra plugin and drawing on the same innovative features, intuitive mapping allows for easy layering and go-between to amplify the authenticity of  your composition.
