A new era in string sample library technology – introducing Abbey Road Orchestra: 1st Violins from Spitfire Audio.  As requested by the composer community, this will be the first section in the Abbey Road Orchestra range to be delivered in two tiers: Core and Professional.  Created using entirely new recording and development techniques from R&D sessions at Abbey Road, Abbey Road Orchestra: 1st Violins offers extensive functionality, while retaining the beauty and brilliance of orchestral strings in the unique acoustic of Abbey Road Studio One.

This is a truly dynamic instrument – reacting in real time, so that every time you play, your next movement is triggered. This library takes playability and responsiveness to new heights for composers.

Stepping up its legato technology in both the Core and Professional versions, Abbey Road Orchestra: 1st Violins features the most detailed and advanced legatos Spitfire Audio has ever made. With multiple layers of legato techniques reacting in realtime to your playing speed and velocity.

The Core tier offers a comprehensive collection of articulations, with a very high level of sampling depth and one Simon Rhodes-curated signal option in order to keep the size and RAM requirements low.

The Professional tier goes above and beyond any library Spitfire Audio has ever created with eight legato articulations in the greatest sampling depth, 16 signal options (including two Simon Rhodes mixes), additional legato techniques for key switching, and alternative attacks for the ultimate in expression.
