There are some key differences to note when comparing our Symphonic Orchestra libraries to the new Studio Orchestra. This article bullet points a list of key differences between the two collections.
Spitfire Symphonic Orchestra
- Symphonic Orchestra was recorded at AIR Lyndhurst Hall and has more of the natural hall sound.
- Symphonic Orchestra contains Performance Legatos which are more detailed, and behave more intuitively than the Legato Performance patches found in the Studio Series. More information can be found here.
- This series has more complete section sizes in the Brass. For example, Symphonic Brass contains Trumpet Solo, a2 and a6. Whereas Studio Brass features Trumpet Solo x2 and a2.
- Symphonic Core libraries have three microphones, whereas Studio Orchestra contains just a Tree microphone.
