The Gravitas Piano was designed specifically for trailer music. A piano that can cut through in a big and epic mix, yet still retain a lot of warmth and depth. To achieve this, Audio Imperia used a set of six stereo microphones, combined with their corresponding sound-designed (“Synthetic”) counterparts.
Audio Imperia's “Klavier" is the first instrument in their new “Private Stock Instruments” series. Originally intended as a private sample library for a group of composers, the two instruments in this series combine the very best of the worlds of raw / organic recordings and post-production / sound design.
The Gravitas Piano comes with 35 “Synthetic” presets, made by some of the best producers in the trailer industry. These “Synthetic” presets can be accessed via the preset control on the “Synthetic” side of the piano.
The “Organic” piano offers both Sustained and Staccato articulations. All of the “Synthetic” presets were made using the original samples from the “Organic” piano. No synthesizers or other instruments were used, just pure sound manipulation and sound design.
