Spitfire Audio has announced the release of Monochord, a free LABS virtual instrument (VST/AU).
This is Spitfire’s second collaboration with the National Theatre; they worked with Oscar-winning composer Stephen Warbeck to capture this unique microtonal instrument, which formed the backbone to his score for the hit 2019 production, Translations.
Performed by Stephen Hiscock, it features various playing styles and effects, including plucks, swipes, sustained paddling strums and warped presets, creating distinctively visceral textures.
This library requires LABS, a free dedicated plugin available as VST2, VST3, AAX and AU, for both Windows and macOS.
