Spitfire Audio brings the Tundra in a chilling update to the Albion range

Spitfire Audio has announced the latest installment of its highly recommended orchestral series: Albion V Tundra.

This draws its inspiration from the minimalist work of composer Arvo Pärt, the collection is based on samples recorded with a 100-piece orchestra, with Spitfire Audio saying that it's done something that no-one else has dared to do and record sounds "at the edge of silence."

Alongside the orchestral content are bellows, percussion and a characterful warped synth section, which is on hand to add "an authentic chill to your compositions."

Albion V Tundra will be available to buy from Thursday 20 October for an introductory price of £299 (normally £399), and requires Kontakt Player 5.5 or later. More information can be found on the Spitfire Audio website.

Here are some more video examples of Tundra in action:

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
