Spitfire Audio expands cinematic Originals with Intimate Strings

Spitfire Audio has released Intimate Strings, a plugin featuring the company’s first flautando recordings, recorded at London’s legendary AIR Studios. It’s the sixth release in Spitfire Audio’s Originals range of cinematic ingredients (joining Cinematic Percussion, Cinematic Soft Piano, Epic Brass & Woodwinds, Epic Strings and Felt Piano), for those working in film scoring and production. 

The release builds on the concept of creating essential cinematic ingredients by bringing original libraries back to life, as a revitalised series of instant writing tools; expertly recorded within various high-end studios. This release complements last year’s Epic Strings plugin.

Benefiting from the acoustics of Lyndhurst Hall at London’s legendary AIR Studios, the samples feature a chamber-sized (8, 6, 4, 4, 3) string section comprising 25 of London’s finest players as one (Strings High and Strings Low) ensemble. Long Flautando, Long Harmonics and Long Half Section articulations all included, to name just three of nine.

Close, Tree, and Vintage signal chains are available from the plug-in’s UI, the latter combining tape saturation, subtle spring reverb, and EQ,  alongside Reverb, Release and Tightness controls.

It’s compatible with major music creation software, from Garageband to Pro Tools, priced at £49.

Intimate Strings has been sourced from Spitfire Audio’s existing chamber-sized string recordings for Albion 11 Loegria, originally released in 2012 and discontinued last year. As a result, owners of Albion 11 Loegria will receive Intimate Strings for free. 

Spitfire Audio’s namesake Spitfire Audio application allows anyone to buy now and download anytime, and is available for free from Spitfire Audio
