British sample library specialist Spitfire Audio just launched their definitive collection of orchestral libraries: Spitfire Symphony Orchestra. In a massive 386 GB of samples, it contains all of Spitfire Audio’s recently renovated orchestral volumes, including Symphonic Strings, Brass and Woodwinds. Taking 10 years in design and 5 years in the making, Spitfire Symphony Orchestra surely marks a new chapter in the company’s history.

Those have been carefully re-orchestrated, re-mixed and re-baked into a series of straight out-of-the-box composing tools, only available as part of the Spitfire Symphony Orchestra collection.
