Conclusion

Out of the box, it sounds fantastic. There’s excellent legato scripting that works well for soaring and lyrical music. The sound in this room is fantastic.7 microphone choices and 4 carefully weighted pack mixes provide flexibility in any musical context.

Appassionata is often described as a legato library with little articulations. In terms of standard shorts, this is true. The Hairpins, on the other hand, are real treasures for me. I’m referring to the fact that we have several spiccato and staccato choices in other libraries, but really creative methods are unusual today’s cinematic industry, so I was ecstatic that Spitfire has these at this library.

The Sound of A Blockbuster Movie

The new Spitfire Appassionata Strings with the “Impulse Legato” technique is the most appealing, lively string legato sound available today – the conclusion of years of hard work and invention at Spitfire Audio HQ.

The most exciting and best libraries are those that inspire you. I’m hoping Spitfire will continue to sample a variety of films because, in my opinion, they’re extremely vital.
