Spitfire + BT Release Polaris Orchestral Synth

String orchestra + classic synths = joy      08/04/22

BT and Spitfire Audio have collaborated to create Polaris which is described as:

A modern string orchestra imitating classic synth sounds, from the mind of Grammy-nominated composer, electronic music pioneer & technologist Brian Transeau, AKA BT

Which in itself is an interesting idea, (we'd love to have been at that pitch!) and has now become a tangible product. Polaris takes a modern string orchestra recorded at AIR Lyndhurst Hall with a variety of mics:

  • Super Close (KM84 / MKH40 - All desks summed)
  • Close (All desks summed)
  • Room (All desks summed)
  • Far (Amb + Gallery summed)
  • Stereo Pair (Rode stereo pair)
  • Boundary (Schoeps PZM)
  • Encode (Dolby A encode / Dolby SR decode)
  • Tape (2 Track run hot)
  • Tight Mix
  • Hall Mix

Polaris BT

The recordings and articulations are available in natural form as well as many  recordings processed again through classic vintage machines: EMU E-II, Fairlight, Mirage, VHS tape prints and others.

There are also several classic synths used in addition as sound sources - CS-80, Prophet T8, OB-Xa, Matrix 12  Jupiter 8 and Prophet 5.

All of this is combined using the the eDNA interface into 421 crafted patches by BT and the Spitfire team.
