LONDON, UK: Spitfire Audio is proud to announce availability of ORCHESTRAL SWARM — setting a new standard in orchestral library innovation through taking the company’s so-called ‘Swarm’ approach (as an alternative to just using straightforward long notes by drawing upon the pointillistic effect of having multiple players perform short notes at random intervals to create an undulating swell of sound that can be performed in realtime) and adapting it to the orchestra to enable even greater detail by utilising the huge variety of articulations and playing styles of orchestral instruments — as of October 27…
ORCHESTRAL SWARM is the direct result of a creative collaboration with Bleeding Fingers (Sons Of Liberty, Roman Empire: Reign Of Blood), a next-generation composer collective for productions that are sonically brave, who wanted to create a new Swarm library in pursuit of composing a perfect soundtrack to the oceanic goings-on featured on the groundbreaking BBC Blue Planet II natural history television series.
Spitfire Audio makes musical tidal waves with Bleeding Fingers for BBC flagship series-supporting orchestral library
Embertone establishes The William Arnold Collection series sampled VIs with world wind instrumentalist’s Shān Bawu
While it is shaped like a flute, the Bawu is a free reed instrument. It has a pure clarinet-like timbre, and players often incorporate the use of ornamentation — bending tones in particular. It is most likely that the Bawu originated in the Yunnan province of southwest China, but it has since become a standard instrument throughout. It is typically featured as a solo instrument in modern Chinese compositions for traditional ensembles and film scores alike. Although the Bawu is still predominantly performed in China, it has been embraced by many European composers and performers in recent years.
As a truly trailblazing processor, Zip uses novel Analysis modes to easily remedy complex dynamics challenges that traditional compressors and expanders are inadequate to treat. Additionally, an abundant assemblage of modulators — freely patchable to most of Zip’s other controls — creates striking effects impossible to achieve using conventional dynamics processors.
As a stereo-only version of NUGEN Audio’s acclaimed ISL 2 — a transparent look-ahead limiter designed to allow users to get on with creative audio production while it takes care of true-peak compliance, ISL 2st allows for content creation fully compatible with loudness normalisation standards used by the likes of iTunes Radio and Spotify — superb sound with complete confidence about meeting the new standards for online delivery, in other words.

From making the synth behave like a VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) to creating complex chords and textures — even to abusing drum sounds into pitched sources, General CV brings rich pickings of fresh flavours to Euroack’s à la carte modular menu.
AS accepts preorders for Fusebox analogue — as in really analogue — monosynth with advanced abilities
As implied by the REAL ANALOGUE VOICE & MODULATION CIRCUITS ‘caption’ boldly blazoned across a brightly-coloured orange panel fronting a no- compromise steel/aluminium-constructed casing (with no plastic mouldings) that’s sure to stand out from (the sound) of the crowd — to partially paraphrase the early-Eighties British breakthrough hit from synth-pop pioneers The Human League (who have a soft spot for Analogue Solutions synthesizers themselves), Fusebox is a true analogue monophonic synthesizer in a smart, small package. Analogue as in really analogue.
Brainworx bolsters classic console tone with newly-named bx_console N analog mixing-modeling plugin update
“How do you make one of my favorite and most used plugins absolutely perfect? The addition of THD and channel randomization answers the question. Now, by being able to dial in an appropriate amount of harmonic distortion, bx_console N has quickly become one of my most used tools for breathing analog life into a mix.”
- Craig Bauer, GRAMMY® Award-winning mix engineer (Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Common), 2017
