Spitfire Audio has released Ondes Musicales, a new free LABS virtual instrument expansion that offers sounds of the Onde Martenot.
Hello September. Summer is coming to an end and we are fast approaching spring. A new month also means a new expansion for the amazing Spitfire Audio LABS series.
This month they captured the sound of a rare electronic instrument.
LABS Ondes Musicales
Ondes Musicales is a new Spitfire Audio LABS instrument that is based on samples from the rare, expressive electronic instrument Onde Martenot. Spitfire Audio teamed up with the professional ondist and composer Josh Semans to create this new unique virtual instrument.
However, they didn’t take the raw sounds of it but use a wide range of processing techniques to shape the sounds. Including modular, granular synthesis, and guitar pedals. From this content, they created a set of inspiring presets.
Once again a very exciting addition to the free LABS series. And in case you made less music in summer, there were two exciting LABS expansions even during the hot season. Synth Strings offers sounds from the Solina String Ensemble, and Organic Textures focuses on natural field recordings.
Spitfire Audio Ondes Musicales is available as a free download for the Spitfire Audio app. It runs as a VST, AU & AAX plugin on Windows & macOS.
