OVERVIEW

Inspiring sound composer toolkit created in partnership with Ólafur Arnalds.

For composers, for songwriters, for producers. An intimate and deeply personal set of tools curated by BAFTA winning composer Olafur Arnalds. Centered around a deep sampled 'felted' antique grand recorded ultra quiet via Olafur's vintage outboard gear. The levels of recording were so hyped that everyone in the room had to hold their breaths for the duration of every sound. This piano is accompanied by what can only be described as a gift selection of go-to sounds personally programmed and curated by the man himself.

The main feature of the library is a 1904 Beckstein grand piano, which Ólafur has customized, after several tests using various strips, with a single piece of felt. This was sampled in meticulous detail over several days to capture the subtle nuances of the softest layers. The felt piano is presented with four unique signals; KM84, Coles, Processed and Spaced. The KM84 signal is the pure sound of the small condensers in place, giving a tight crisp sound to the piano. The Coles is a mono signal below the soundboard, processed through a Roland Space Echo as a LoFi tape simulation to give a gritty low end. The processed signal is a mix of the KM84s with a pair of C12s, mixed by Ólafur into a pair of Pultec EQs and finally slammed through a 1178 stereo compressor to give the distinctive Arnalds sound. This processed sound has been paired with a ‘Spaced’ sound in a ‘Mixed’ patch that Ólafur has further processed to give a truly unique take on his signature piano.

To accompany this inspirational instrument, Ólafur has created numerous sonic manipulations of the original piano as well as individual instruments to provide instant aural inspiration. With nearly 100 presets, neatly presented by type, the library contains more than enough to allow musical creativity to flow, all presented in Spitfire’s Mercury synth engine.
