Spitfire Audio BBCSO Discover free orchestral sample library plug-in

Spitfire Audio have announced that their BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover library, previously available for $49£49 including VAT / €49, or free to those willing to complete a questionnaire followed by a 14 day wait, is now available as an instant download for free.

Developed in a collaboration with one of the world’s most renowned orchestras and featuring the same professional and detailed recording process as the Core and Professional editions of the library, Spitfire describe BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover as a straightforward and inspiring gateway into orchestral composition. Spitfire’s innovative mode switching technology also allows users of BBCSO to share projects and collaborate, regardless of whether the own the Discover, Core or Professional editions of the library.

Discover features 33 instruments that span strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion, and a total of 47 playing techniques are available along with one professionally mixed signal. Housed within Spitfire’s own intuitive plug-in, the library provides everything needed for users to write great sounding orchestral music and is available in a range of formats supported by all of the major DAW software packages. Despite the extensive feature set, the library only requires 200MB of disk space.

“Our ambition for...Discover is that it becomes the absolute entry point for anybody wanting to discover orchestral music, with all of the instruments that you would need to create basic orchestrations, but with a very much reduced footprint and reduced articulations.” says Paul Thomson, Spitfire Audio co-founder.
