LABS: LA Atmos
A free virtual instrument that features LA streetscape field-recordings from Spitfire Audio and dublab.
Producing inspiring sounds for composers, LABS plugins are created with sonic pioneers such as Hans Zimmer, and the world’s finest musicians and studios. LABS is a series of free software instruments that are presented by Spitfire Audio, and available in an easy-to-use, dedicated plug-in. The user interface is clutter-free and focused, and features simplified controls, sliders for expression and dynamics, and a knob that can be easily customised to the user’s personal workflow.
Recorded on the streets of Los Angeles by the team behind non-profit LA radio station, dublab, these unique textures capture the beating heart of the city. LA Atmos features a range of field recordings, inspired by the techniques of musique concrète — from crickets and crowds, to sirens and helicopters — warped and manipulated to create both melodic and percussive soundscapes, complete with a range of in-built custom controls.
