Olafur Arnalds Composer Toolkit from Spitfire Audio is set of compositional tools centered around a deeply sampled 1904 Beckstein grand piano, customized with a single piece of felt. The purpose of the library was to create a set of tools that could enable anyone to take a collection of instruments recorded in an inspiring setting to write with anywhere. The piano is accompanied by a selection of go-to sounds programmed and curated by Arnalds.

The felt piano is presented with four signal paths – KM84, Coles, Processed and Spaced. The small condensers KM84 signal is the straight crisp sound of 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, into a pair of Pultec EQs and then through an 1178 stereo compressor to give it a distinctive sound.

This processed sound has been paired with a "Spaced" sound in a "Mixed" patch that has been further processed to give a truly unique take on his signature piano. The Mercury Synth is the front-end interface for the library, with assignable controls that can be mapped to a user's control surface. The interface provides the ability to make custom sounds without having to delve into the complexities of the underlying KONTAKT engine.
