MODERN SCORING, INSPIRED BY THE PAST
A celebration of un-notated traditions passed down through generations, and 
captured through the magic of sampling, Albion Solstice explores the visionary 
artistry from modern, folk, and heritage instruments. Passionately curated, 
this library transcends genre to give you everything you need to create modern 
cinematic scores.

The breadth of instrumentation and alternative techniques that forms the 
nucleus of this composing toolkit is staggering. Inspired by our rich and 
varied musical heritage, Solstice is a wellspring of opportunities featuring 
strings, brass, and woodwind accompanied by unique instruments from 
nyckelharpa, Celtic fiddles, hurdy-gurdy, and modern synthesizers, percussion 
performances, and much more. This is not a library to create folk music with, 
but simply everything you need to create cinematic scores for today, inspired 
by the past.

Recorded at the legendary Castlesound Studios in Edinburgh, Scotland, Albion 
Solstice is an ultra-intimate and dynamic selection of uniquely workshopped 
ensembles, featuring highly specialised players and sound smiths from a 
cross-section of classical, folk, Celtic, Gaelic, and other traditions, mixed 
with modern instrumentation such as analog synthesisers, Eurorack modular, 
electric guitar textures, tuned percussion, and distinctive audio processing. 
This folk noir library is a deep wellspring of endless inspiration, stemming 
from the organic sounds of modern and heritage instruments from across the 
United Kingdom, treated, blended, and unleashed to create extraordinary 
soundworlds fit for modern scoring.

Formed to be a vast and powerful scoring toolkit with everything you could 
need to create incredible cinematic tracks in one box. The sounds in this 
NKS-compatible library are grouped into three distinct sections: The Solstice 
Orchestra, the organic core featuring 10 expertly curated ensembles and 1 solo 
instrument, The Cassette Orchestra with 750 tape-warped, affected organic 
sounds available for you to expand upon using the intuitive eDNA GUI, and The 
Drone Grid, an almost infinite pool of stunning and unique textural evolutions 
to offer composers never-ending inspiration.

By design, the Albion series offers you everything you need to create film 
scores, helping you instantly jump-start ideas with sounds that support the 
writing process, allowing you to move beyond the blank page. With Albion 
Solstice, the approach to recontextualise folk and traditional instruments 
allows you to transcend genre, creating modern scores where anything is 
possible. Helmed by Spitfire Audio's co-founder Christian Henson, who expertly 
curated and workshopped each section over two years, Solstice is our boldest 
Albion yet.

THE SOLSTICE VERNACULAR
The Elders (Traditional Strings, Classic Strings, Solo Bass) - The Callers 
(Brass & Winds) - The Mystics (Whistles) - The Blaggards (Band) - The Hosts 
(Choir) - The Generator Trio (Electric Guitars) - The Gut Circle (Acoustic 
Guitars) - The Nursery (Bells & Mallets) - The Marauders (Percussion)

THE SOLSTICE ORCHESTRA
Featuring 10 ensembles and a soloist, 235 articulations, 78 of which are found 
in the two string sections, including legatos, The Solstice Orchestra is a 
collection of folk and contemporary instrument ensembles presented in an 
achingly honest and truthful light. The beating heart of Albion Solstice, 
these organic sounds are hand-selected by Christian Henson, working closely 
with a carefully selected group of players from the traditional music scenes 
in Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom. Offering new, intimate, and 
sometimes provoking sounds imbued with raw emotion, evoking past, present, and 
future at once.

Discover strings, brass and woodwinds, a choir, percussion, whistles, synths, 
and guitars, presented in pre-orchestrated ensembles, featuring single hits, 
common and alternative techniques, motors (rhythmic performances that sync to 
your host tempo), evolutions, drones, textures and much more. Introduce 
yourself to the lamenting performances of The Callers, a unique brass and 
woodwinds section featuring soprano sax, clarinet, tenor trombone, baritone 
sax, tuba, and contrabass clarinet. Create indie-like textures and tones with 
help from The Generator Trio, an ensemble of 2 electric guitars and electric 
bass, creating momentum with strummed, plucked, and e-bowed performances. The 
Blaggards bring a totally unique and useful grouping of drones and movements, 
an ensemble comprised of traditional folk instruments including accordions, 
bass harmonica, nyckelharpa, hurdy-gurdy, harmonium, and cl…rsach (Celtic 
harps), the folk core of the library - but we've made it cinematic. Compose 
with The Elders, a pair of string sections, the Classic Strings Octet offers a 
raw beauty featuring more common techniques, whereas the Traditional Strings 
Sextet provides more Celtic, Gaelic, and folk colours to their Classic 
counterparts. Each section inside The Solstice Orchestra has been orchestrated 
to allow you the time to just write with confidence in your tools.

Jump right in using the broadcast-ready mix created by the award-winning film, 
tv, and game engineer Jake Jackson, or tweak signals to meet your needs using 
the intuitive GUI, featuring 3 microphone positions and a cinematic impulse 
response reverb, unique to Solstice and formulated by Christan Henson and the 
Spitfire Audio Development team, giving you brilliant control over the dry, 
tight nature of Castle Sound and allowing you to mix with any orchestral 
library.
