The Spitfire Audio LABS program, announced in March, has officially launched. The software is designed to be easy to use, high quality and at a low cost – in fact, it’s free!
Poor musicians rejoice: Spitfire Audio’s LABS has officially launched, featuring Soft Piano and Strings software instruments – for free!
Recorded by musicians in London, Spitfire plans to release a new software instrument every month, in what they claim will be an infinite series.
The first two releases are:
Soft piano: recorded at Air Edel Studios, by Pianist Nick Taylor, the soft tone was achieved by placing a strip of felt between hammers and the strings. Recorded with a Schoeps Mk 4 microphone.
Strings: Fourteen of London’s best string players were captured by Harry Wilson, using a variety of different microphones including a vintage BBC AXB1.
Spitfire Audio say you can expect each new release to range from traditional to experimental, working within the same streamlined VST/AU/AAX plugin developed by UsTwo, as Creativity shouldn’t be complicated.
