Spitfire Studio Strings marks the first release of a vital all-new Spitfire Orchestra range. Our ambition was to create an incredibly versatile pro-end dry stage sample library. By choosing the crisp and vibrant setting of AIR Studio One, a smaller, more controllable space than the opulent Lyndhurst Hall, we offer our fellow composers a string library with depth, detail, and focus all at once. It will work on anything from passionate period dramas to modern Scandi noir. It’s a fit for quirky indie and crisp pop but can also tackle epic film and games scores.

Our new Studio Strings package is a medium chamber (or small symphonic) ensemble recorded by section (1st violin, 2nd violins, violas, cellos and double basses), and is available in two versions: Spitfire Studio Strings, and the more extensive Spitfire Studio Strings Professional.
Spitfire Studio Strings takes you straight to the heart of our most pristine orchestral library to date: 148 articulations across the full 30-piece string section (, from soaring legato and our signature whispering super-flautando, right down to spiccato, hairpins, grace notes, and FX. Immediately usable, instantly compelling.

The Professional edition of the library offers all of this and more, opening the door to peerless detail and control – 5 extra mics, 2 extra mixes, large band (16/12/12/12/4) and divisi for each section.
We were determined to go the extra mile and offer divisi (half sections) in the Pro library, which empowers a new level of modular control. Your string orchestra is now configurable from the fibrous intimacy of dual four-piece 1st violin sections, three-piece 2nds, three-piece violas and three-piece cellos ( up to the rich power of – a combination of the main sections (including basses) plus two divisi.
In addition to an all-embracing 232 articulations, you can access and personalize your mix of the full microphone armory of Simon Rhodes – six different setups, from pin-sharp to super-wide, picked up by the best from Neumann, Schoeps, Sennheiser and others.

Spitfire users now have a comprehensive range of orchestral manoeuvres. We believe Studio Strings suits users of our existing Lyndhurst Hall ranges as an essential sonic alternative. It is also perfect for those looking to buy a strings library that will give them the most bang for their buck – being usable in the widest range of musical settings, ready for your own favorite reverbs and FX. With the versatility we have engineered into this library, we have no doubt that Spitfire Studio Strings will be a cherished part of your music-making over the next decade

Simon Rhodes was an obvious choice for our entirely new Studio orchestra range – a microphone magician with multiple Grammy awards to his name, and a senior engineer at Abbey Road Studios. He has worked at the highest level in film score recording, having been James Horner’s go-to engineer for 18 years. Blockbuster movies such as Avatar, Skyfall and Specter have also had the Rhodes treatment.
You can choose Simon’s mix, or with the Professional edition of the library, customize from the various mic options, from close to ambient, as well as two ‘Tree’ setups, both using Schoeps microphones. “The second uses Schoeps MK 21 wide cardioids (or sub-cardioids), which are great for keeping the room sound at bay while allowing you to get a sense of distance and perspective. This was especially important for our prized divisi recordings, where we recorded different sets of players in separate chairs, divided between inside and outside desks. With a touch of reverb on, this library is going to sound very lush and beautiful, but at the same time keep hold of all the detail.

— — — — — MINIFIED 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.

I have already released a minified version of this library, but after playing more with it, I realized that the "Close" mic samples were more harsh than I liked, so I remade the minification using the "Decca" tree mix instead.

— Library size is 8.6GB (from ~ 195GB)
— Added a "Big Hall" IR, so we can choose in the UI "Reverb: Studio" or "Reverb: Hall"
— All samples are 16bit
— Only the "Decca" tree mix exists

Is there a way to combine the two libraries you've released? I'd like to have both the mics.
  Member 14.06.2021 64
SSS = the directory of the Spitfire Studio Strings

- Copy the Instruments from the "Close" SSS in a new folder inside the "Decca" SSS Instruments folder, something like "..\SSS\Instruments\Instruments Close\"
- Copy the Samples folder from "Close" SSS next to the "Decca" SSS Samples folder, something like "..\SSS\Samples Close\"
- Inside Kontakt select "Batch re-save" and select the "..\SSS\Instruments\Instruments Close\" folder.
- When the "Missing samples" dialog appears, select the "..\SSS\Samples Close\" folder.

You must register only one of the libraries.
That's it..

Thank you so much noembryo. will try and let you know if successful or not.
  Member 9.12.2019 1 45
It somewhat worked. I have patches with the close mics and Decca Mics separately. What I was trying to achieve was to control both the mics from the same patch. But this works just fine. Thanks again. <3

Thank you very much for your work. I encountered a situation, loading (a - Violins 1 (16) - Legato performance.nki) uses CC1, and bombs will appear from time to time. The loud sound is frightening.
  Member 9.07.2021 7
a - Violins 1 (16).nki also has this kind of situation. My God, the huge sound tears the speaker, and the ears are very painful. Thanks again!
  Member 13.11.2023 1
It just happened to me too! I hope my speakers are not broken.
Did you find a fix for this? I really want to use this library.
