Keaton Henson

Heirloom is a composition toolkit from renowned artist Keaton Henson, with sounds inspired by the mind, heart, and soul. It’s a unique modern score music collection for use with Reason 10 that includes beautiful human touches to enhance your sound fingerprint.

The strings, raw woodwinds, a stirring piano, and melancholy guitars are all captured in London’s stunning Church Studios, where Adele, The XX., Nick Cave, and the Bad Seeds have left their mark.

Heirloom Recording Space

The recording quality is pure and broad in nature, making them suitable for more emotive scoring. With sounds that may be combined into any composer’s signature sound palette and compliment without overpowering, this enormous character offers limitless inspiration.

Recording studios are considered sacred ground by all musicians. The Church is a magnificent, historic church in north London whose stone walls and stained glass have reverberated with prayers and some of the finest music ever written for 170 years.

Playing a part in musical history that includes Adele, Bob Dylan, Radiohead, Florence + the Machine, and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds is what it’s like to record at Church Studios today.

Spitfire Audio has introduced Heirloom, a highly innovative scoring toolkit developed by renowned artist Keaton Henson. Heirloom is a tiny, personality-rich, and for lack of a better word, dusty variety of cinematic instruments.

Heirloom is extremely inspiring, combining as it does such unique instruments that will broaden your palette.

The Heirloom library is in keeping with Spitfire Audio’s high-performance show time and again, but it has hidden depths. Heirloom exudes individuality from every note thanks to the careful selection of instrument, ensemble size, and articulation.

Heirloom is ideally positioned to express sentiments that are difficult to convey, whether it’s about complex existential concerns, the human condition, or aging.

The library’s oddities are what make it beautiful. You’ll notice human moments while between the notes, which will stop you in your tracks. During a performance, the natural sounds of players and their instruments.

Heirloom Instruments

Heirloom features 8 string players (3 violins, 2 viola, 2 cello, 1 bass), woodwind including a Contrabass Clarinet, and Tubax, an achingly beautiful Piano (the beating heart of the library), and Guitar. All intimately recorded by the highly talented Fiona Cruickshank at London’s atmospheric Church Studios.
