Spitfire Audio Spitfire Chamber Strings KONTAKT-Minified screenshot
P2P | 12 July 2021 | 6.4 GB
Small can be more beautiful. 16 of the finest string players, playing the finest instruments via the finest signal path in The Hall at Air Studios, London. A super deep-sampled encyclopaedia of string articulations and techniques. The Spitfire team’s favorite string product to-date.

When many of us hear the word “chamber” we think of white wigs and harpsichords. In modern vernacular however it simply describes a band that is smaller than a symphony orchestra. So anything from a quartet to 40 odd players. Where strings are concerned it generally means a medium sized ensemble consisting of 5 sections (1st violins, 2nd violins, violas, cellos and basses).
Our desire was to create the definitive chamber strings project, recorded at Air Studios, that gives you the widescreen Hollywood sound we all desire, with a detail and ability to articulate that is harder with larger sized string sample libraries.

16 star players, 4 1st Violins, 3 2nds, 3 Violas, 3 Cellos & 3 Basses super deep sampled with over 244 articulations, including 38 shorts, 53 longs, 19 FX, and 45 extraordinary legato patches programmed by Andrew Blaney. Recorded with multiple round robins, dynamic layers and presented with 3 essential and versatile microphone positions. In addition to each individual section we also have a comprehensive selection of articulations and techniques presented in an ‘ensemble’ format designed for sketching and composing with ‘out of the box’ satisfaction.

Presented as a Kontakt Player library so no further purchases are necessary to run the library. We’re also proud that it is our first NKS-ready release for use with NI hardware. It features a new ‘intuitive’ GUI with an inbuilt user manual.

Spitfire was built on a chamber strings project. Many of our friends, including A-list composers, complained that sampled strings were unwieldy, ill-defined and too epic. That for much of their output, sensitive and achingly beautiful quiet passages through to searing lyricism didn’t require huge numbers but attention to detail. That symphonic ranges often tripled and quadrupled in size when playing lots of notes.
So we set about the difficult task of recording a chamber strings range which we shared as part of a private project with our nearest and dearest, and were delighted when it was received with huge amounts of optimism and encouragement.

Many, however, noted how it still sounded ‘kind of big’. So we returned to the chamber challenge with a question: How small can we go before it no longer sounds like a section? The answer was 4,3,3,3,3. A uniquely intimate group of extraordinary players in one of the best recording locations. Originally available in volumes, this project has now taken 4 years of our life. We now present Spitfire Chamber Strings in a rationalized, and more instantly useable form. As mentioned before it is the Spitfire team’s absolute favorite string range, admired for its beauty, its versatility but also its totally unique sonic character.
For us, if you’re a composer looking to stand out from the herd, our Chamber Strings are worthy of your attention.

Since I like to have many Kontakt libraries but don't want to fill my hard drives with them, I minify them, keeping only what I really need from them.

— All samples are 16bit
— Added a Convolution Reverb and repurpose the original "Close/Far" slider to control it.
— Added menu to select IR type from the UI - "Reverb: Chamber" or "Reverb: Hall"

I started by uploaded the ones I was already using, but since there is such appreciation, I minified some more, that looked interesting and can get compacted a lot (like spitfire's)

makaveli, your awesome zippy links have been killed already. any chance of a new set ?
they're so fast, I prefer these to any other links.
much appreciated if you can do anything.
  Member 27.04.2019 6
It'd be nice to have the full non-minified Version. Thanks for giving.
  Resident 23.04.2017 2 430
Thanks but....the list of removed articulations is massive!?
I worry too much the app's features are missing...dunno, think I'll pass but thx just the same.
Lots of others seem happy so, all good
  Member 31.01.2012 30
zippy links are killed
is it possible to be fixed
thank you
  Resident 14.08.2020 5 123
I understand removing the far mic, but why take out so many articulations? I mean, no harmonics or con sordino, wtf?
  Member 14.06.2021 64
Violin1 "Con sordino" exists in Core techniques.
I removed the individual articulation by mistake
"Harmonics" I don't use, like ever.

And remember, as I wrote in the info:
"Since I like to have many Kontakt libraries but don't want to fill my hard drives with them, I minify them, keeping only what I really need from them."

If you don't like them, wtf, don't download them..

EDIT: hidera just added the missing instrument I send him, at the first post..
@hidera Many thanks!
  Member 17.01.2014 1 240
Thank you for everything. And as you say, if u don't like them don't download them. I downloaded all your releases and checked it out. Some work for me, other don't....either way a million thanks, noembryo. And hidera too for bringing your kids here.

  Resident 27.05.2020 26 436
Agree with @noembryo here. After all, the main motivation is personal usage. If you don't find value in the library, just don't donwload it.

  Member 5.06.2015 30
The links are all dead. Someone can reup please!
  Resident 19.12.2018 56
Guys, use referer to track who from Spitfire Studio is lurking here and dmca all the files immediately, if you know PHP, you can trace him and block his account forever. Thanks
  Resident 19.12.2018 56
Maybe it is a guy from Rapidgator
Because all the links are down, BUT only the rapid gator ones are still valid.
You guys should ban Rapidgator for a while and see what is happening. Use ddownload for example, faster and better.
