Review: Areia by Audio Imperia

Audio Imperia have had a busy time of late tweaking and improving some of their existing instrument libraries. The key changes are implementing their Pyramid engine which promises reliable performance and the change to NKS. Areia is the latest instrument to be released by Audio Imperia and is a Hollywood style string ensemble. With Nucleus and Jaeger using the same system, Areia is the wider string extension of these libraries and it certainly is packed with features. As a whole the Audio Imperia orchestral universe, including Talos and Cerberus, has expanded to epic proportions. As a singular library, Areia has so many features, articulations and customisation options to stand on it’s own two feet as a string library powerhouse.
