Checking Out: Heirloom by Spitfire Audio

My first impression of Heirloom was not only is this in line with the high-quality Spitfire Audio show time and time again but this is a quality library with hidden depths. From the careful selection of instrument choice, ensemble size, and articulation choice, Heirloom oozes character from every note. Coupled with the fact that these are very unique instruments that will expand your palette, Heirloom is just so inspiring. While learning about the library, I found myself writing in a completely different way as I was guided by the instruments themselves and what they have to offer. The contrabass clarinet is my highlight of the library as the whisper-quiet to spiteful rasp is just pure magic. As a self-contained toolkit, it’s a great addition to any composer’s palette. As a standalone instrument, it can keep going on for album after album! This is a great value set of instruments, worthy of any collection. Another triumph from Spitfire Audio!
