Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds Teaser
Originally released in multiple volumes as part of Spitfire’s renowned BML (British Modular Library) collection, the samples of five woodwind libraries were condensed, renovated and re-programmed into one single, enhanced product. Like the developers recently proceeded with their libraries ‘Symphonic Brass’ and ‘Symphonic Strings’, Spitfire Audio not only improved on the playability, design and ease-of-use, they also added 30% of brand-new content to the product that has never been released before.
Symphonic Woodwinds represents the pinnacle of over four years of capturing and deep-sampling the performances of world-class woodwind players in Britain’s iconic AIR Lyndhurst Hall.
