AREIA SOUND DESIGN
All of these sounds were created entirely from the original session recordings. No synths were used in the designing/making of these sounds.
While there are only ten sounds in total, I designed each pad using several layers that intertwine with one another and evolve subtly over time and even across the range of the keyboard. I intentionally treated each note slightly differently in EQ, FXs , etc.. to impart a more "organic" feel when layered with the strings in this library, other libraries, or played on their own.
For Areia, I also designed a complementary low end for each pad.
