Spitfire Audio has announced its fourth collaboration with renowned composer Ólafur Arnalds. With Stratus Spitfire brings you a brand new, multidimensional instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Stratus is based on Ólafur’s acclaimed software of sophisticated MIDI algorithms programmed to trigger patterns of notes on two identical self-playing pianos.

Spitfire has used this model to create a highly intuitive and interactive tool enhanced with unique features, while recording full performances to capture the profoundly emotional, organic nature of the pianos themselves — instantly adding echoes of movement to anything you play, and pushing you to explore new possibilities.

Spitfire Audio Ólafur Arnalds Stratus

Fusing the power of technology with the organic beauty and emotion of the piano, Stratus is a vast, dynamic new instrument that will add depth, movement, and colour to your music.

A groundbreaking innovation – made in collaboration with BAFTA-winning Icelandic composer and producer Ólafur Arnalds – this versatile, multidimensional tool bends space and time through an intricate network of polyrhythmic piano performances. Awe-inspiring patterns and atmospheric clouds of harmonic refractions swell and die away at your fingertips, unfolding based on what you play and instantly sparking new ideas.

Available on March 19th, you can now pre-order Stratus for the intro price of £199 GBP/$249 USD/249 EUR.

You can also save an extra 5% off the introductory price for every Ólafur Arnalds library you already own, or save up to 35% by upgrading to The Ólafur Collection.

The introductory offer ends April 9th, 2020.
