Spitfire's quest for sounds that no one else makes continues with the release of Albion V Tundra- they took a 100 piece orchestra and recorded them performing instructions that were "sounds at the edge of silence" in other words making some pretty unique articulations and tonal moods. In practice this means that they played from MP (messe piano) at the loudest, down to almost inaudible - which created a set of completely unique sounds.

You can run the Spitfire Albion V Tundra Library using the free Kontakt player - you don't need a full version of Kontakt.
