The second instalment in the award winning new gold standard in symphonic strings. A sixty piece string band (16,14,12,10,8) playing fundamental articulations. Electronic Delivery.
Deep sampled British strings performed by the most in-demand London players in Air Studios, host to some of the most revered film scores of recent times.
After the masterful simplicity of the Albion - epic 'out-of-the-box' orchestral ensembles and the finely crafted detail and beauty of the Sable chamber string range, Spitfire at last are creating the ultimate symphonic-sized detailed string collection as part of their comprehensive British Modular Library. Spitfire's long term project to create the greatest sounding, deepest sampled and ultimately future proofed living orchestral virtual instruments collection on the planet today.
All the players are recorded in situ and mixed carefully with the correct perspective and placing so that they lock together which each and every BML module as if they were all in the same room together when recording. This means that when you start putting sections together it simply works. No mixing, panning, or careful manipulation of reverbs is required to create ultra realistic true sounding mockups, demos and masters. It is designed for ease of use and instant satisfaction with numerous mic positions and essential Jake Jackson mixes to give you options to change the character of the recording, and apply the Mural sound to any number of applications.
Mural offers a grand 60 piece string band (16,14,12,10,8) but is recorded and performed in such a way as to provide you with ultimate detail. It is not an epic dirgy sludge of trailer-making strings. It is pure in its detail and beauty and is designed to encourage and inspire you to write better orchestral music for your canon.
Since being released Mural volume 1 and it's symphonic cousins have gone on to garner many awards and plaudits including Music Tech Magazine's "Sample Library Of The Year 2014" award and has become the no. 1 workhorse symphonic string library the industry over.
As working award-winning composers the collective that is Spitfire Audio know and understand what it takes to make world-class film, TV and games music. Mural #2 is a carefully curated broad and comprehensive selection of articulations perfectly compliment volume 1. With a deeper selection of longs and shorts to the soul searching Sul Tasto, and haunting sul points. With must-have trills and measured trems and more colourful articulation with a variety of truly functional legato patches to greater expression with molto espressivo (molto vibrato) articulations. Topped off with some brilliantly tasteful and inspiring FX, the "tense" longs that are worth the price of admission alone. We've also filled in some of the gaps in Volume 1 with bartok pizz, harmonics and unmeasured trems for the second violins and violas. We feel this instalment of our Symphonic range makes the Mural library the first-go comprehensive collection of samples any discerning composer would reach for.
Recorded deeply with up to 8 round robins and numerous dynamic layers and controls including vibrato and intelligent legato switching.
