Spitfire Audio ’s latest LABS series free virtual instrument features recordings of whalesong, transformed into big textures using granular synthesis.
This collection of haunting textures was commissioned by The National Theatre and composer Jherek Bischoff, forming the bedrock of his breathtaking score for the stage adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane. The results are haunting soundscapes and textures.
In addition to this new release, Spitfire Audio has released numerous other exciting detailed libraries for free in the past. Tundra Atmos is another library full of amazing atmospheric textures that offers natural sounds of near-silent environments. Wurli and Soft Piano are two perfectly sampled key instruments.
One is a sampled Wurlitzer electronic piano by engineer Henry Cornish, the other is a soft piano. The soft tone is achieved by placing a thin strip of felt between the hammers and the strings. These libraries are very nice, versatile, and enrich every plugin arsenal. Don’t miss them.
Spitfire Audio LABS Granular Whalesong is available now as a free download for the SF Audio app which is available for PC & Mac (VST, AU & AAX). Same applies to the other libraries
