WHAT IS ORIGINALS?
Originals is a series of instant writing tools, expertly recorded in the Spitfire way at various high-end studios (including AIR Studios, home of blockbuster scores) simplified and presented in our easy-to-use plug-in. Clutter-free and focused, it features sliders for expression and dynamics, and a digital mod wheel that can be easily customised to the user’s personal workflow, as well as a selection of essential articulations, presets and controls. It’s the perfect next step from LABS, for anyone wanting to add a touch of Spitfire magic to their recordings.
HOW DO I ADD ORIGINALS INTO KONTAKT?
You don’t! Originals is presented in a dedicated plugin available as VST2, VST3, AAX and AU, so it can be used directly in your favourite DAW.
