Spitfire Audio announce the Bernard Herrman Composer Toolkit

Spitfire Audio has announced the imminent release of their newest Composer Toolkit, which is inspired by the iconic composer Bernard Herrman…

Here’s the full story from Spitfire:


Our newest Composer Toolkit is inspired by the electric genius of Bernard Herrmann, famous for his groundbreaking scores for the likes of Citizen Kane, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Psycho, Vertigo and Taxi Driver.

This is our first dry-stage orchestral library, and we’ve worked exclusively with Bernard Herrmann’s estate to curate and assemble a unique set of studio orchestra ensembles, informed directly by the composer’s legendary orchestration aesthetic. Recorded at Studio 1 Air Lyndhurst by Simon Rhodes (Avatar, Grand Budapest Hotel, Spectre, Harry Potter, There Will Be Blood), we’ve captured players performing as Herrmann would have had them – boisterous, lively and upfront, with patches featuring selected groups, unusual instrumental combis, chords, effects and much more.

This versatile Toolkit is for the mavericks looking to create lively and distinctive scores.
