Spitfire Jupiter by Trevor Horn Pop Sounds Sample Library



An artist signature collection of drums, fx, bass, synths, and pianos

We’ll just leave it up to Spitfire’s own press release to ‘splain their latest release. Spitfire became famous for their orchestral libraries a few years ago, but they’ve since expanded their repertoire very widely – including prominent artist signature libraries like Charlie Clouser’s Hammers percussion library (check the review with audio demos), which we like immensely.

Take it away, Spitfire press release:

Created with innovative production tools designed by pop pioneer Trevor Horn. A comprehensive collection of characteristic and crafted Drums, FX, Bass, Synths, and Piano, capturing the production style and otherworldly sonic elements associated with the pop innovator’s work – recorded and produced in the legendary hitmaker’s studio, and powered by SOLAR; Spitfire Audio’s eDNA-powered plug-in.

From warm analogue textures to futuristic digital sounds, this is the quintessential library for synthwave and electropop, and for emulating the distinctive treatments and harmonies found in Trevor Horn productions with Grace JonesSeal and Yes, amongst others.

“Rewritten by machine on new technology”

 ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’ by The Buggles


This library combines two dynamic forces: Jupiter by Trevor Horn and SOLAR – one, a collection of defining sounds, and the other, a tool for reinventing them. 

The most up-to-date iteration of Spitfire Audio’s eDNA technology, SOLAR is the host to Jupiter’s curated pop samples and the eDNA’s extensive warp and preset library – a secret sauce for music makers looking to create sounds synonymous with pop in the Eighties and Nineties and unlock new levels of musical expression.

In SOLAR, you can blend and mould two sounds together to create your own unique sound. SOLAR also allows you to combine other products in this range together, such as the otherworldly textures of Mercury – Spitfire Audio’s collaboration with Chas Smith, which is also available at a special crossgrade price for anyone who orders both products.


King of the Eighties – Trevor Horn’s music is the definition of this era. A renowned music producer known for his groundbreaking productions, especially in the realm of pop music, Trevor Horn has produced instantly recognisable hit songs such as ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’ by The Buggles, Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s ‘Relax’, ‘Kiss By A Rose’ by Seal, and Grace Jones’s ‘Slave To The Rhythm,’ as well as numerous classic albums.

A technological innovator, Trevor Horn thrives on taking a visionary approach to his productions, with a fun and unique attitude. This has had an undeniably huge influence on contemporary pop culture, impacting generations far beyond the Eighties.
