Home » Recording Resources » Featured Reviews » The Piano, Reimagined

This groundbreaking innovation made in collaboration with BAFTA-winning Icelandic composer and producer Ólafur Arnalds fuses the power of technology with the organic beauty and emotion of the piano, to create a vast, dynamic new instrument that will add depth, movement and life to your music. Intricate piano performances generated by a sophisticated network of midi triggers, this versatile, multidimensional tool offers a multitude of combinations of awe-inspiring polyphonic patterns and emotive swells that develop based on what you play — instantly sparking new ideas.

Stratus has been carefully curated by Ólafur to be instantly playable and easy-to-use, presented in a custom-built interface made up of six multi-layered piano and synthesizer matrixes — each offering a unique sonic experience, featuring extensive customisation options, as well as mind-blowing warped content. A rich, everlasting source of inspiration designed for anyone creating electronic music, underscoring films, or looking to enhance orchestral scores with a hybrid, contemporary edge.

Ólafur Arnalds“The classical scene is sometimes closed to people who haven’t been studying music all their lives. I want to bring my classical influence to people who don’t usually listen to this kind of music, to open people’s minds.”

— Ólafur Arnalds
