With 36.5 hours of 13,872 samples giving 35.3 GB of uncompressed WAVs (48k/24bit) with a download footprint of 18.5 GB (lossless compressed) you'll surely agree this is a characterful, definitive take on this unusual instrument.
Gently stroke the finely crafted glass rods and listen in wonder as the movement resonates the tuning rods and in turn the metal and fibreglass amplifying resonators, creating a sound unlike any other. The instruments ancestry dates back to the famous Cristal Baschet, made famous by the Baschet Brothers, but this Titanium Euphone is a one of a kind modern take on a French heirloom. Commissioned by the performer and owner, award winning composer Christian Henson, who along with the Spitfire team, has deeply sampled these other worldly tones in perfect harmony with the needs of any modern music maker.
Deep sampled in three different configurations with round robins multiple dynamic layers and playing styles. A host of microphones and positions to capture this multi phonic, spacial instrument at one of London's coolest recording studios; Air-Edel. The producer portfolio Euphone has to be the most definitive and deeply sampled instrument of it's type with the quality and taste bar that sets Spitfire aside from it's peers.
