Spitfire Audio has expanded its free LABS virtual instrument plugin series with Piano Pads that gives you timeless, ambient sounds.
The LABS series by UK-based sample specialists Spitfire Audio are among the best free plugins in my opinions. They are not overloaded with features, but they can score with great unique sounds. Each release doesn’t have the simple sounds that you would find in any sample-based instrument. LABS has special sounds that have been specially designed for each new release
LABS Piano Pads is the latest release that comes with a collection of 13 presets. These include timeless, ambient pads & swells created from single piano hits, warped in creative ways using spring reverb, cross-fade, reversing, and time-stretch techniques by Spitfire co-founder, Christian Henson.
Other Libraries You Must Know
Spitfire Audio publishes a new library in the LABS range every month. So far there are 28 different libraries available as a free download from the official website. Each with very unique sounds. For example, Tundra Atmos features amazing atmospheric textures from natural sounds of near-silent environments.
Another impressive release is Granular Whalesong that includes recordings of whalesong transformed in haunting textures using granular synthesis.
Spitfire Audio Piano Pads and all other LABS instruments are available as a free download from the official website. It is only compatible with the Spitfire Adio app which is also free.
