Spitfire Audio has announced its new Chamber Strings sample pack, the company’s first sample-based virtual instrument for Native Instruments’ Kontakt Player platform. The word ‘chamber’ describes a group of instruments smaller than a symphony orchestra — anything from a quartet to 40-odd players.

The selling point of the sample pack is the attention to detail throughout the sampling process. 16 professional strings players were recorded in situ at Lyndhurst Hall within London’s Air Studios at 96k via a Studer two-inch tape machine using a selection of valve and ribbon mics, Neve preamps, and a Neve 88R console. A comprehensive selection of articulations and techniques presented in an Ensembles format lets you sketch and compose while three different mic positions — Close, Tree, and Ambient — provide soundstage flexibility.

“It’s an incredibly detailed library,” says Spitfire Audio co-founder (and composer) Paul Thomson. “We’ve consolidated everything into one package. This is the first release of that, which is the close, tree, and ambient mics — the most commonly used of all the mics, with the full articulation range of the previous SABLE – Chamber Strings series.”
