Spitfire Audio’s most epic library yet (and our first Albion hosted in our dedicated plugin), Albion Colossus, a gargantuan, all-in-one toolkit, pushes contrast, dynamism and intensity to eleven — elevating your scores to breathtaking new heights. Action films are nothing without suspense. This feat of musical engineering offers every element needed to seamlessly transport your scores from quiet suspense and tension, through to the most dramatic and epic of soundworlds — with two complete orchestras, Chamber and Symphonic, heavy chugging guitars, a diverse, hard-hitting set of percussion and drum kits, and epic, widescreen synths — expertly crafted for ultra-modern scoring. Discover all-new features including Scale, Depth and Hype – expressive controls to help you build intensity and push sounds even further.
A celebration of un-notated traditions passed down through generations, and captured through the magic of sampling, Albion Solstice explores the visionary artistry from modern, folk, and heritage instruments.
Formed to be a vast and powerful scoring toolkit with everything you could need to create incredible cinematic tracks in one box. The sounds are grouped into three distinct sections— The Solstice Orchestra, the organic core featuring 10 expertly curated ensembles and 1 solo instrument, The Cassette Orchestra with 750 tape-warped, affected organic sounds available for you to expand upon using the intuitive eDNA GUI, and The Drone Grid, an almost infinite pool of stunning and unique textural evolutions to offer composers never-ending inspiration.
Albion ONE is our flagship orchestral sample library. It contains high dynamics and energy, whilst being highly flexible across multiple genres. Albion ONE is the perfect place to start your film scoring journey.
The library contains a 109-piece Orchestra recorded at the Lyndhurst Hall in AIR Studios. Featuring Strings, Brass, Woodwinds, and a large cinematic percussion section.
As well as the Albion ONE Orchestra, the library also contains a large number of Loops and Synths.
Albion Neo: The Albion library curated for a new wave of progressive musicians and composers, with the demand for a more subtle, intimate, hybrid sounds.
At its core is a chamber-sized orchestra performing unique, experimental techniques, recorded in the widescreen resonance of The Hall at AIR Studios.
Similar to all Albion Libraries it features an encyclopaedic range of synths, loops and textures. NEO however offers you an intense focus and definition not found in other Albion's.
It is a perfect Accompaniment for Tundra.
Albion V: Tundra
Tundra is one of our most beautiful libraries and is not like any other Albion. It is designed to capture the orchestra on "the edge of silence" at its most intimate.
We've sampled a 100-piece orchestra for this library and it further includes bellows, percussion and a characterful warped synth section, likewise to our other Albion libraries.
What sets this library apart however is the delicacy. The Albion V string section is very delicate and can be considered nordic. To capture the icy strings, no violas were recorded for this library and the entire "Tundra" Orchestra played from quiet markings all the way down to silent oblivion, resulting in a deeply dynamic and timbral set of expressive instruments.
The percussion is also not "epic", it is deep, soft and rich which really compliments the orchestral section.
Albion IV: Uist
Uist is a unique library. Albion IV presents large ensembles playing over 800 unique and extraordinary atonal, aleatoric and "progressive" articulations.
The library is best used when using evolving textures or drones. This would be a great addition for those composers looking to add unease to their compositions or unearthly textures.
This library features no percussive elements unlike the rest of the Albion libraries.
