Spitfire has always been about introducing music makers to innovation and talent. So it seemed only right that they would feature Paul Clarvis in this amazing new addition to the mallet family titled the Aluphone; an other worldly array of aluminum bells played in the glorious surrounds of the hall at Air Studios. Paul Clarvis is an institution unto himself having performed on countless blockbuster movies with a very special relationship being formed over decades working as part of Hans Zimmer's company of percussionists. Clarvis was also charged with the unenviable position of leading the London Olympics seminal drum corps; an infamous part of the opening ceremony. Clarvis not only brings his technical prowess to every session, he also brings a zealous spirit of generous collaboration to get the best out of any set of recordings.
Aluphone is a two and a half octave chromatic array of aluminum bells usually played with marimba mallets. Using their renowned 'deep sampling' code, Spitfire was able to record the Aluphone with a selection of beaters both damped and sustained with a broad selection of dynamic layers and round robins. Then they coupled this with their easy-to-use GUI which gives you instant access to an array of available mic selections to mix together. From intimate and close to distant, the interface allows you to instantly customize what was recorded to suit your individual production.
