Trailer Ambient Tools

Piano and ebow guitars for ideal for ambient, cinematic music...

The story

We at Wavelet Audio have been always trying to record and create something non-standard. Sometimes the recorded material turns out to be unsuccessful and unusable. But sometimes it turns out to be beautiful, which we want to share with everyone.

The main part of the library is a cinematic piano for the Kontakt sampler. It draws on the sound of the Soviet piano “Belarus”. The instrument used for recording was in poor condition – the piano was damaged and unstable in tuning. The imperfect pitch of the notes gives a darker and more cinematic sound, with special warmth and atmosphere. Sound control is performed by a single knob in the library interface. The Atmosphere knob enhances dark patches and spatial effects in the sound.

In addition to the piano, there are also ebow guitars. The sound of this little sound set is completely ready for use in any commercial project. Trailer Ambient Tools will fit into most styles of music, but are best at writing ambient, cinematic music and soundtracks for trailers.

  • Oooooo a really pretty piano!

    There are a tone of pianos on the PB site, so it's getting a little tough to create something which stands out. This piano definitely does. I usually don't care much for sounds which already have tons of reverb on them, but the piano here won me over instantly. I can't put my finger on exactly what it is about this piano, but it has such a nice tonal balance to it, and it's far more playable than even many commercially released piano libraries. It's really great, and super inspiring. Super job!

  • Very interesting

    Defiantly worth a download, you'll either hate or love it. I found it quite nice, if a little undynamic. Its panned to the left which is annoying. When all three patches are layered it sounds amazing. I found pitching the ebow down 12-steps and removing the atmosphere from the piano had excellent results.

  • A simple idea done right

    I'm not a trailer music composer. But I can see this clever library being used a lot by people who do! Loading up a few plugins and adding fx and automation, is replaced by a useable instrument with a simple interface straight out of the box. Great Job!

  • oh my

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Three great tools. Simple yet very effective. Very inspirational for a darl moonlit recording session!

  • the name describes it perfectly

    the piano is beautiful but the star of the show for me is the guitar ebow the tone is nice but high shelf of around -8db at like 2000hz together with a slow attack of around 10k ms gives synth like pad sound with a organic sound also a heavy reverb really helps

  • A fantastic piano with extras

    This library consists of 3 patches - a piano, a distant piano, and a drone. The main piano contains only mid to high range samples, and is sampled beautifully. I especially LOVE the lower octave of this. It has such a character that is not easy to capture. The distant piano is called "piano signals", and it sounds like a piano through a deep deep reverb. For the two pianos, you get a nice looking "atmosphere" knob that turns down the reverberations, but not completely. The drone is called "Guitar Ebow" and honestly sounds quite good, but unfortunately the lack of settings will make this a hard choice. I'd still give it a try though, because you can't easily find for free such quality.

  • An inspiring collection of sounds

    The star of this library is definitely the piano, it's soft and dreamy, but not dark. It's inspiring and instantly sounds good. The "atmosphere" is nice, but it is a 1 trick pony. And the long reverb is still fairly loud even when the knob is set to the minimum value. Thanks for creating it!
