This Synthesizer can be clearly seen at 4:36 inside Orjan Nilsen's iMac screen. Meanwhile, he explains a little bit of his workflow. Quote: > " I've added quite a few things, here we got a Sylenth, very clean. I've already made a sound on **Spire**, you may recognize it for some of my own, my other tracks [...]"more
In a reddit AMA from November 2014, Lazy Rich is asked about his favorite synths. He replies, "Been really getting into Spire recently (thanks to Jon), it takes a bit more effort to EQ it but you get a big fat sound very easily. Been using it for my next couple of tracks so you'll hear the results soon!"

Deli Mag: Is there an electronic instrument (real or virtual) that left its mark on this record more than others? Olga Bell: Spire! I read about Spire on some random forum, bought it (it was kind of a splurge), and went right for the big-room house presets, tweaking them until they became lovable and awkward. My favorite was a preset called “Guetta Bitch”, a stepper that appears in the middle of “Randomness”.more
In this Instagram video clip of Miss K8's DAW session as she's working on a track called [Blackout](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcPGkBFlGq0), it can be seen that she uses the Reveal Sound Spire Synthesizer Plugin. > "Here is a small preview of my new track BLACKOUT! 190 bpm! #MissK8 #Blackout"more
Great sound, great synth, great people behind it! It has a very crisp yet warm tone to it that is fitting for electronic and includes some great filter types, onboard effects, and presets. Its a bit of a CPU hog though, so be careful when trying to run multiple instances.
Good ol Spire. My first plugin that used to be all the influences behind my previous work as a Glitch-Hop / Drum & Bass music producer. The plugin is very versatile in making different and unique sounds that work together and overall not being to CPU intensive when running or rendering out.
The plugin itself is a bit outdated with Spire and Massive being the two stealing most of the limelight nowadays, however i feel that if Reveal Sound were to release a major update for Spire in order to compete with the two mainstage plugins they would have to do something amazing with the features, inputs and display of the plugin.
This is a solid buy right here. It's unique in its own way and has a lot of interesting sounds. Although it's diverse it does appeal to certain genres more than others. I don't use Spire often but when I do its usually for a good reason
"The number one place I go to for chords and melodies. I love that the presets are already really clean so I don't really have to do too much to make them what I want. Ryzu actually put me on to it, and I've been hooked ever since."
