Renowned for their painstaking creation of sample libraries and virtual instruments, Spitfire Audio is bringing that quality to everybody for free with the relaunch of LABS…
Alongside their extensive libraries, Spitfire have become more prevalent thanks to their artist collaborations, most notably Hans Zimmer and Olafur Arnalds. However, Spitfire’s attention to detail does drive the price, making it accessible only to professionals and/or those with disposable income. However, LABS (Let’s All Become Something) will change all that and remove the barrier to entry.
Originally beginning life as a series of experiments and the cool sounds that were created, the project was rather low key. Now though, Spitfire tells us that this will be a different experience, one that they hope will create an exciting and inspirational wave in the music making community.
Initially launching with the Soft Piano and a new Strings library, the two instruments – which have been designed in collaboration with UsTwo (Monument Valley) – can instantly be downloaded and operated within a dedicated plugin (VST2, VST3, AU, AAX). New LABS will be released each month, with Spitfire promising a mix of key traditional instruments as well as some experiments discovered along the way.
