Spitfire Audio Albion NEO KONTAKT

Introducing the next chapter in our bestselling Albion series: Albion NEO. At the heart of this modern cinematic collection is a chamber-sized orchestra with a super intimate string section, split by divisi across all articulations for incredible definition and expression — all captured in the beautiful resonance of The Hall at AIR Studios.

These organic recordings have been taken to new dimensions to create an encyclopaedic range of hybrid synths, inspiring loops and textures, including over 300 curated presets to take your scores into the new decade, all in one instantly playable package. Where Albion ONE was for blockbusters, NEO is flexible across genres, designed to inspire a new wave of forward-thinking composers, artists and producers looking to create a closer, more emotive, hybrid sound – for TV, films and beyond.

The NEO Orchestra 

At the heart of Albion NEO is the NEO Orchestra. Like all of our Albion libraries, it is designed to be instantly playable and easy to use, with all instruments in each section spread across the keyboard. Capturing stunning performances from a group of 36 world-class first-call session musicians playing 54 classic and unconventional articulations, it has been carefully crafted by award-winning orchestrator Ben Foskett and Spitfire Audio’s Harry Wilson, and recorded to tape by renowned engineer Jake Jackson in the world-famous Hall at AIR Studios, London. The emotion of each performance has been captured in intense detail, with five microphone positions and two specially curated mixes to choose from.

The Strings are split into two divisi sections, A (12) & B (11) — designed to complement each other and creating interesting combinations when played together. Discover both Longs and Shorts, plus the more unconventional, yearning Long Seagulls, Long 5th Bend Down/Up, and the icy Col Legno Tratto. We give you seven brass players, featuring Detuned, Long Pulses and Reblows, and 6 woodwind players, so soft that they sound like a breathy harmonium, featuring Long Octaves, Long Swells and Short Marcatos. We have also included pre-orchestrated Legato patches for all instruments, recorded full-band for instant playing ease.
