OUT NOW: Speculative Memories by Yair Elazar Glotman

OUT NOW: SPECULATIVE MEMORIES — from the heart and mind of Berlin-based composer and experimental sound artist Yair Elazar Glotman.

Create suspense, tension and atmosphere with these cutting-edge cinematic textures. From beautifully haunting, evolving drones with visceral undertones to ambient swells and earth-shattering atmospheres created from a selection of extended techniques performed on double bass, vocals, guitar, as well as modular synths sounds, custom tape loops and more — developed into visceral abstract environments through sophisticated granular processing and layering techniques, including our epic spatial signal captured at the state-of-the-art sound studio MONOM in Berlin. The release of this library comes alongside the homonymous album, available via SA Recordings.

Speculative Memories is available now for 29£/$/€ 


  • Extraordinary value for £29. There is so much within this VST. I also think Spitfire have ‘nailed’ the interface: ‘rooms’ is easy to understand and use for general ambiance, allowing you to engage one of the other dynamics on the right hand wheel with a controller.

    I’ve experimented with this for about an hour, during which an 8 bar passage for something I’m writing popped into my head and got laid down. I’m now about a half way through exploring the huge array of instruments and soundscapes this offers.

    This has been marketed as ‘cinematic’, and as cinematic composers are a Spitfire core market, that’s understandable. But don’t feel constrained by that. There’s so much within this that’s so useable. It crosses genres with ease. I predict its appearance in everything from pop hits through trance and the inevitable film and game scores.

    I thought ‘Originals Epic Choir’ was great value for money, and it is. But this absolutely trounces it on ‘bang for buck’. I’m looking forward to getting au fait with the whole package.

  • I have just bought this and I must say I'm impressed with the bredth and quality of this instrument. I'm looking forward to getting to grips with it over the weekend. Thanks

  • I really hope to see more expansions for the Yair Elazur Glotman plug-in

    actually already impatient for it ;)

  • I feel that this library hits a sweet spot in terms of price, outstanding quality and usability, especially for textural, ambient and cinematic compositions.

    The spatial sound fx (reamp) is really interesting and when combined with randomising the sample start, makes for some deep, dynamic results.

    As a couple of other users have commented, this library lends itself to expansions and I await those keenly.

    But I don't want to appear too greedy. I really appreciate the work that Yair and the teams has put into this one. Thanks everyone!
