Spitfire Audio was founded by two composers: Christian Henson and Paul Thomson. It started with their shared dissatisfaction for string sample libraries. Together, they pooled resources and decided to record their own string samples at the legendary Air Studios in London — the idea was that they’d invite a limited number of friends and associates to own copies of their samples.
Some of the most renowned composers in film and television signed-up and for a short while whispers of this private sample club echoed across the Atlantic ocean amongst the composer community. It was only when Paul and Christian got to sampling soloists that they found that their initial supporters didn’t need it; they could afford to invite players to their studios. Hence, Spitfire Audio the company was born. Their initial side project is now a thriving business based in Tileyard, London, with a uniquely experienced and diverse workforce, all focused on the shared mission: To inspire a generation of orchestral music makers.
