The Spitfire Audio LABS programme is an infinite series of software instruments, free and easy to use; made by musicians in London for anyone, anywhere.
Spitfire Audio is planning to release one every month, as well as a bimonthly creative compendium, The Notebook. And in case you missed it, all for FREE.
You can sign up for LABS mailing list and download the new instruments on the Spitfire Audio LABS website. Note that these are standalone instruments and do not require any other software to run them; you can download and install them using the Spitfire Audio App, which is available during the signup process if you don’t have it already.

Fourteen of London’s best string players, recorded at Spitfire HQ by wise-beyond-his-years Harry Wilson. This ensemble was captured using a wide range of microphones including a vintage BBC AXB1. It’s awesome.
