Thrill, beguile and enchant audiences with Areia, a serenely intelligent string composition tool. This cinematic ensemble instrument has been made exclusively for Kontakt Player, specifically designed for ease of use and endless artistic possibilities with mixing options and musical flourishes just for string instruments. Quickly arrange sweeping sections of gloriously emotive music with expressive emotion, range and the lush Hollywood sound that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats.


Founded in San Diego, California in 2016, Audio Imperia is the brainchild of Jan Hoeglund and Tomas Lobos Kunstmann. Initially focused on creating well-produced sample packs, the company has blossomed into a huge sample library operation. Since then they’ve amassed praise from composers and producers alike for consistently creating intuitive and epic instruments, composition tools and orchestral collections.
