Spitfire Audio aims to introduce composers and producers to innovative, rare sounds. When reaching for tuned metallic percussion, the first thing that springs to mind is the Tchaikovsky celeste, or the glockenspiel. The aluphone conjures similar sonic magic, without being instantly recognisable. This awesome set of recordings gives you acoustic magic through the finest signal path, as used by the world’s best composers.

The aluphone is a two-and-a-half octave chromatic set of aluminum bells, played primarily with marimba sticks, as well as a variety of mallets, both decaying and sustained, with a wide variety of dynamic layers and round melodies. We’ve combined this with our easy-to-use GUI that gives you instant access to many different microphone selection options (Close, Tree, Ambients, Outrigger, Gallery, Mid) so you can instantly customize your recordings to suit your wishes. We also present to your attention two mixes prepared by engineer Jake Jackson.
