Piano: A two layer piano. The first layer covers the entire keyboard and uses a dark, subdued piano with moderate reverb and heavy compression. The second layer covers the lower portion of the keyboard (A#-2 and down) and uses a brighter, aggressive piano. The “ValhallaR” reverb plugin uses a large room reverb with a pre-delay of 10ms and a decay of 5s. The piano will work well with any reverb with similar settings.
Air Pad: A bright, airy, synth pad. It has a slower attack and a trailing reverb.
Horns+Strings: A two layer synth. The first layer uses a rich, full horns/brass sound that has a quick, swelling attack, and then a couple second decay with moderate reverb. The second layer is added by raising the mod wheel and is a rich, full strings sound with octave layers.
