Spitfire Audio unveils DRUMLINE in collaboration with The Blue Devils

Spitfire Audio has announced the availability of DRUMLINE – the eighth release in its ongoing Originals series of instant library tools.

The new tool is in collaboration with the Bleeding Fingers Music composer collective (created as a joint venture between composer Hans Zimmer, his business partner Steve Kofsky, and Extreme Music, the production arm of Sony/ATV Music Publishing).

The collective worked with world champion drum corps The Blue Devils, who were recorded by Bleeding Fingers Music CEO Russell Emanuel in the controlled acoustics of FOX’s famed Newman Scoring Stage in Los Angeles, and features 1.5GB of sampled snares, tenor drums, bass drums, and cymbals.

Duly delivering the precision and excellence of The Blue Devils drumline to the fingertips of music producers, film composers, and percussion arrangers, DRUMLINE allows its users to “harness the spirit of the stadium” with a collection of sounds that are guaranteed to add depth and impact to musical projects.

Blue Devils Performing Arts CEO Shaun Gallant commented: “This has been a very exciting project for us to work on with Spitfire Audio. They are truly the best in the business, and we’re so thankful for this opportunity to partner with them in providing top-of-the-line tools for arrangers and producers everywhere. We want to extend a special thanks to producer Russell Emanuel and the team at FOX’s Newman Scoring Stage for hosting our session with Extreme Music in preparation for this project. What’s even more exciting is this is only the beginning of what is sure to be an incredible partnership. We can’t wait to see what opportunities the future presents.”

Spitfire Audio co-founder and composer Paul Thomson, added: “At Spitfire Audio we take pride in working with the most talented musicians and artists in the world. We’re enormously excited to be releasing DRUMLINE with the exceptional players from The Blue Devils. Our mission is to inspire a generation of composers and, working with The Blue Devils and producer Russell Emanuel, we’ve created something that is going to inspire composers of all ages to learn more about this exciting musical genre!”
