HANS ZIMMER is one of the most successful, influential and prolific film composers of his generation. Having won countless awards (including an Oscar accompanied by an embarrassment of academy nominations). HZ’s scores have underscored a generation of hugely successful films, that have turned over billions of dollars, countless awards and critical acclaim. Hans has defined not only a compositional style, but also production approach and sonic innovation that has influenced a generation of composers.

Spitfire Audio are delighted and honored to present a series of products produced by Hans Zimmer and his diamond class team of grammy winning engineers, musicians and technicians. Where Hans Zimmer’s style approach to sonic creation is often copied or emulated we’re proud to present to the world at large HZ’s definitive take on his trailblazing approach to cinematic percussion production. Herein lies not an emulation or synthesis of his approach, but a recreation. The same studio, musicians, instruments, signal chain and talented engineers, sitting alongside a decade of experience, innovation and refinement overseen in every detail by Hans himself. The same excruciating attention to detail, perfection but most importantly the endless choice for tweakability and customization you’d expect of the greatest of sound-smiths.

Spitfire Hans Zimmer HZ01 Features
Recorded at Air Studios via an impressive signal chain. 96 rarefied microphones, into Neve Montserrat pre-amps, the world’s biggest Neve 88R desk (which was exhaustively re-gained at every dynamic layer for optimum signal quality), via a dual chain to HDX and Prism converters running at 192k. Well over 30 TB of raw material from these sessions alone.

The London Ensembles sessions feature the cream of Hans Zimmer’s hand picked percussion corps playing a distillation of a decade’s worth of musical experimentation and innovation. This is not an imitation of techniques explored in films including Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, The Dark Knight and Inception. It is a truthful recreation.

The library consists of microphone positions (as detailed below) mixed in stereo and 5.1 by Grammy and Oscar winning engineers: Alan Meyerson, Steve Lipsom, Junkie XL, Geoff Foster and Hans Zimmer himself.

About Spitfire Audio
Spitfire Audio was set up in 2007 by a collective of award winning composers and producers. In 2011 they set about distilling all of the essential tools they used to make modern epic cinematic music into a single product. This was the genesis of Albion Volume 1, a tool kit that took the world by storm and earned itself many awards and plaudits.

Four years may not seem a long time, but in the fast moving world of Spitfire Audio it is an age. With over 60 products released in this period alone including 8 new strings libraries and a panoply of orchestral recordings in the shape of the epic BML series, Spitfire have gained a lot of experience! So they decided to return to the original Albion Volume 1 concept and see how it stood up. With heavy hearts Spitfire decided it was time to go back into the studio and put their beloved Albion Volume 1 out to pasture. They felt the experience gained, and the feedback garnered from thousands of users could present a product far superior to the original ‘legacy’ version, a product that would continue and deserve to be the most popular product Spitfire has ever sold.
