Boasting an orchestra of 100 musicians and advertised as sound at the edge of silence, Tundra is very good at particular things but is not at all a general orchestral sound library. A sound that you can just make out, straining your ears to catch subtle changes, paints a color that is very different but not less important than the loud. For many years now Spitfire Audio has been recording orchestras of all sizes, but a theme that has run throughout our last decade is how to unearth and discover more naked and honest performance styles. Coclusion As far as orchestral libraries go, there come the point where you have everything you need, and the only reason to get something new, would be a significant improvement in either sound quality, or the colors the library can represent. Everything you need to take it down a degree or two! I have often felt like the sordino patches in sample libraries are lacking and don't really convey the quality that muted strings have in a live setting.

The Sound quality is incredible with great mic and mix options, but there is no extremely dry close mic. Albion V takes care of us with providing a huge sample library with articulations that would please even composers of contemporary classical music. Like the other Albion libraries, there is an element of working right out of the box, as workflow is always an important consideration for the sort of people that might be drawn to this library. The performances were inspired by composers such as , and. Interface For those of you who know the Spitfire interfaces, there is not much new, but we know that just because there is nothing to fix if nothing is broken.
It is a very particular coloring of sound that, to my knowing, has not been compiled before, and making it available will definitely help diversity and change to remain constant factors of the scoring music history. The huge selection of articulations created ranged from pimped classics such as our ever popular flautando, but with mutes added, and sections playing poly-divisi so that even with a band of this size, every player can be heard. Очень хорошо, что появилась возможность с ней ознакомиться. Albion V Tundra delivers subtlety in a powerful way and can conjure a plethora of emotions when applied with care. See what we think about it. Taking experience gained with our fantastically popular Trumpet Fields giveaway instrument, our instructions to all bands were to be naked, honest, and non-conservatoire, but also with very specific textural approaches that liven the hall to create a very natural mossy patina.
With 32 evolutions spread over 12 regions and the all important dice function to immediately randomise your preset into a near infinite number of possible outcomes. Each with its own set of articulations. It should be noted that the close mic does not sound as close and dry as a similar setting in an East-West or Native Instruments library would sound, however, I do whole-heartedly think that the sound quality on thew Spitfire libraries in general is on a level all its own. Like in the previous track, many different instruments from the Tundra library are used. I would not reccomend this as a first orchestral library, but is perfect in combination with the more general orchestral libraries or even the earlier Albion releases.
Spitfire has been one of the top players in sample library game for several years, and by how everybody agrees at least on one thing, if they do something they do it well. I see the sample library as an amazing tool for film music and also for contemporary classically trained composers that want to experiment with different orchestral sounds and articulations. Moving on to the brass, these instruments offer a very different palette to the strings, but are equally interesting. Albion V Tundra contains not just many phrases that are hard to come by anywhere else, it also does create a new found awareness for the power and importance of silence. Albion V comes with a Darwin Percussion instrument. Или это отдельный самостоятельный продукт? This produced an extraordinary selection of stuttering granular folk beds which we have slammed through processing and have warped and cajoled into a very special Nordic style Evo Grid.
A library of this kind is pretty much designed for purpose. The percussion instruments sound very cinematic. Do I Really Need This? The user interface is very easy to use. Tundra excells at slower tempi and at creating soft and gentle music. The real magic of the library is that the players were instructed to create soft and intimate dynamics during recording. An Evo is a long evolving sample that changes over time that we know from other Spitfire products.
So what, exactly, do those samples sound like, then? What I like about the Orchestral section overall is the attention that has been paid to getting some interesting textures. Its user interface is easy to operate and deep enough to for most users. The Darwin Percussion section contains some large drums, but in keeping with the rest of library concept, they are played quietly and allowed to ring mercilessly, which gives a clue to their size. The Orchestra is divided into eight ensembles: Brass High, Brass Low, Strings High — Main, Strings High — Soft and Wild, Strings Low — Main, Strings Low — Soft and Wild, Woods High and Woods Low. Taking a leap into the unknown, in this case, some of the lower mids were scooped out of the frequency map by boldly excluding violas from the orchestra and instead supporting a rich cello and bass offering of 12 and six players sat in the middle of the room with two tremendously enhanced violin sections of 20 and 18 players sat in antiphon — opposite sides of the room. I could almost smell wet Estonian forests. By taking this into account, by studying the most popular recordings of Arvo Pärt, Sibelius and Gorecki, and by observing new emerging talent from Scandinavia and Iceland we were inspired to create a whole new set of tools.
Скачал сам,а дальше-хоть трава не расти-жизненный принцип. The brass instruments for high and low contain many of the same articulations of the woodlands but also have muted double tongue and granular flutter articulations. Something that has become quite fashionable with certain media and film soundtracks is the inclusion of long and evolving textures, some of which might be electronic, but others which might draw on an acoustic starting point, and that is where Albion V — Tundra might be of great use. Conclusions When I discovered twentieth-century composers while studying music history, I was mesmerized by the orchestral sounds composers could create using an orchestra, and I always wondered how to recreate those sounds on my computer. The high and low Strings break into two categories; Main and Soft And Wild. Still they manage not to stagnate.
While not quite as useful as the various other grid instruments put out by Spitfire, this patch still offers great possibilities. Partnering with long term collaborator, orchestrator and contemporary composer Ben Foskett we set about recording a full dynamic set of samples where the top level was set at mp mezzo piano, or kind of medium quiet right down and through to the quietest recordings we have ever dared record. Apart from the obvious sustained patches, particular favourites of mine included the Frozen and Air And Ice patches, with an ever increasing presence of Rosin on the bow, which makes it feel like you are standing in Air Studios with the 100-piece orchestra. Highlights alongside these cascading longs articulations are flautando legatos, brushed shorts and some extraordinary loose pizzicatos where only the principals were in possession of the click track! Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals. I felt right at home it the comfort of the simplistic but extremely elegant and functional User Interface. There are a lot of pre-sets from which to choose, some of them having amusing names that are just too funny not to mention. We felt we needed to scoop some of the lower mids out of the frequency map.
Partnering with long term collaborator, orchestrator and contemporary composer Ben Foskett we set about recording a full dynamic set of samples where the top level was set at mp mezzo piano, or kind of medium quiet right down and through to the quietest recordings we have ever dared record. We sought instead to create a sonic tapestry that was of this Earth. Returning back to London we set about recording an enormous orchestra - but not in a style steeped in the choral tradition, echoing angelic angels from above. Albion V Tundra is a massive sample library made with as much attention to detail as possible. There are 27,860 samples in Albion V, that is 56.
