Spitfire Audio announced the release of Spitfire Symphonic Strings on the 17th November 2016.
“Spitfire Mural R.I.P. – Press Release
For reasons we’ll give in a minute, we’ve decided to take Mural 1, 2, 3, Ensembles & Evolutions off our shelves in their current form. To celebrate their award winning success and to give everyone one last opportunity to enjoy this modular set of tools we’re going to be offering ALL volumes at a discount of a massive 47% whilst also putting Symphonic Evolutions on sale as a standalone library for the first and last time.
After nearly 4 years of hard graft we’re proud of what we consider to be the definitive selection of Symphonic Strings Samples. However having this broad selection of tools spread across different volumes does make for complications. We also found that without unifying the main body of work, we were unable to take advantage of articulation sharing between the different volumes for greater functionality and ease of use. We also feel if you want to go blockbuster you have to go bold, if you want cinematic you have to go big. So we have decided to take every articulation, dynamic layer, round robin, legato interval and rationalise it into the ultimate encyclopaedic compendium of Symphonic strings sampling to date, recorded in London, with no expense spared. Spitfire Symphonic Strings is the ‘Daddy’.
We will initially release Spitfire Symphonic Strings as a ‘core’ product with everyone’s favourite and most diverse microphone positions C(lose), T(ree), A(mbient). Followed soon after by two expansion packs, #1 Additional Mics & Mixes and #2 ‘Evolutions’.
For those of you wanting just one volume (we particularly recommend Mural Ensembles as a great entry level volume or Mural 1, Music Tech’s ‘Sample Library Of The Year 2014’) or wanting to complete the full range with all bells and whistles (with the bundle now at over 40% off) this is your last chance!
But the most important thing is anyone who has bought any Mural* products now or in the past will all have a discounted cross-grade path up to a new, exciting, rationalised and refreshed new product. And anyone who owns all 3 Mural volumes AND Ensembles will receive a FREE copy of the new library on the day of release.”
