Walkthrough: Spitfire Audio Announce Release date for Bernard Herrmann Composer Toolkit


Spitfire Audio has announced their latest release Bernard Herrmann Composer Toolkit

The deep sample and stylized orchestral sample library is inspired by the electric genius of Bernard Herrmann, famous for his groundbreaking scores for the likes of Citizen Kane, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Psycho, Vertigo and Taxi Driver.

This is Spitfire‘s first dry-stage orchestral library, and the team at SA worked exclusively with Bernard Herrmann’s estate to curate and assemble a unique set of studio orchestra ensembles, informed directly by the composer’s legendary orchestration aesthetic.

Recorded at Studio 1 Air Lyndhurst by Simon Rhodes (Avatar, Grand Budapest Hotel, Spectre, Harry Potter, There Will Be Blood), we’ve captured players performing as Herrmann would have had them – boisterous, lively and upfront, with patches featuring selected groups, unusual instrumental combis, chords, effects and much more. This versatile Toolkit is for the mavericks looking to create lively and distinctive scores.

Bernard Herrmann Composer Toolkit is now available for Pre-Order (released on 22nd July) at promotional intro pricing of £339 (inc. VAT ) until Thurs 6th July) with standard price of £429 inc. VAT / $499 / €509 inc. VAT
