First Look: Ambient Guitars by Spitfire Audio

Ambient Guitars is a collaboration between Spitfire Audio and composer, producer and guitarist Leo Abrahams.

Combining two of Spitfires previously released libraries: Enigma 1 & 2, with a massive update of 10GB / 600 sounds of brand new recordings from 2019 with 160 new presets, Ambient Guitars is a 50GB collection of modern guitar multi-sampled instruments, textures, and loops created and performed by Leo Abrahams.

“Leo Abrahams has recorded and toured with artists such as Imogen Heap, Roxy Music, Grace Jones, and Pulp, has written for and produced artists including Wild Beasts, Florence & the Machine & Ghostpoet”

I have very tempted to pick up the Enigma series myself as I am a big fan of Leo’s work on film scores (The Lovely Bones with Brian Eno and Hunger with David Holmes, ’71, Ocean’s 12 & Ocean’s 8, Twilight, Green Zone, Molly’s Game & The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) and was really looking forward to this new and massively updated compendium of the developer and guitarists collaboration.

After listening through the demos and watching the official videos it was clear that this collection was designed with the film, TV and game composer in mind.

The timbres seem to exude dark, indie style scores with a wide range of multi-sampled instruments with a nice offering of articulations

as well as pads and atmospheres (in the EDNA engine)

and limitless design of evolving textures (thanks to the Evo Grid engine.

With the updated release, Spitfire is promising is a playable and intuitive toolkit of sounds that range from ambient to apocalyptic. In this first look video (up top) I share my experience seeing what the library has to offer right out of the box.
