Spitfire Audio | Albion 1 & 2 (String Longs)


Spitfire Audio has released the next iteration of their (mostly orchestral) Albion series, with Albion 2 'Loegria'.
If the focus of vol. 1 was on the epic cinematic style, vol. 2 is all about cinematic beauty and detail.

Here is a comparison of string longs from both libraries playing the same material.

Articulations in both Albion 1 & 2

    • 0:00 - Albion 1 String Longs (con sordino)
    • 0:25 - Albion 2 String Longs (con sordino)
    • 0:47 - Albion 1 String Longs
    • 1:10 - Albion 2 String Longs

Articulations in only Albion 2

    • 1:36 - Albion 2 Strings 1/2 Section
    • 1:58 - Albion 2 Strings Flautando

More string comparisons to come, including legato and shorts.
