BD Performing Arts & The Blue Devils are proud to announce an exciting new partnership with Spitfire Audio and the release of our recent collaboration – an original drumline sound library.
Music producers, film composers, and percussion arrangers can now access the precision and excellence of The Blue Devils Drumline at their fingertips with Spitfire Audio’s Originals Drumline! This new sound library will allow you to harness the spirit of the stadium with a collection of drumline sounds that are guaranteed to add depth and impact to your project.
"This has been a very exciting project for us to work on with Spitfire. They are truly the best in the industry, and we're so thankful for this opportunity to partner with them in providing top of the line tools for arrangers and producers everywhere," said Shaun Gallant, CEO of BD Performing Arts. "What’s even more exciting, is this is only the beginning of what is sure to be an incredible partnership. We can't wait to see what opportunities the future presents!"
Spitfire Audio is a British music technology company that works with the world’s best composers, artists, producers, engineers, and institutions to create inspiring sounds and scoring tools for film and video production. Their detailed, sophisticated, and realistic sample libraries are exciting and easy to use, offering thousands of sounds at your fingertips for endless inspiration.
“At Spitfire we take pride in working with the most talented musicians and artists in the world. We’re enormously excited to be releasing this Drumline sound plugin with the exceptional players from the Blue Devils. The depth of sound and their control and mastery of their instruments is jaw dropping,” said Paul Thomson, founder of Spitfire Audio. “Our mission is to inspire a generation of composers, and working with the Blue Devils and producer Russell Emanuel, we’ve created something that is going to inspire composers of all ages to learn more about this exciting musical genre!”
The Blue Devils are proud to join Spitfire Audio’s long list of elite artists and partners including Hans Zimmer, Eric Whitacre, Ólafur Arnalds, BT, the London Contemporary Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and Abbey Road Studios. Their sound libraries have been heard in everything from major Hollywood film scores to recordings by popular artists such as Radiohead and U2, so the next time you hear Drumline sounds in a new album, TV show, commercial, or movie – it might just be The Blue Devils!
We want to extend a special thanks to producer Russell Emanuel and the team at FOX's Newman Scoring Stage for hosting our recording session with Extreme Music in preparation for this project.
