Dream Keys Complete is the new piano based library created as a toolbox for film composers, electronic and pop musicians. It offers a selection of carefully “designed” piano samples derived from two different piano sets.
Our goal has been to provide composers with a plug-n-play solution to get that typical ambiance/cinematic piano sound heard on movies and TV, plus a variety of creatively crafted patches great for styles like soundtrack, electronica, hip hop and a lot more.
The piano sets have been processed using a specific effects chain in order to obtain a great ambient/soundtrack sonic flavour.
- All samples are 24bit/44.100
- The library includes two different processed cinematic piano sets and 31 designed patches
- Modwheel behaviours

Dream Keys Instant Gratification
Dream keys is another winner for Dream Audio Tools...It just simply does what it's supposed to do, namely, give you some pianoish ambient keyboard sounds that are...well...dreamlike. No need to fuss with too many parameters, it sounds great right out of the box. Another plus is there are not too many instruments to choose from. So no anxiety deciding which variety of a certain sound you want to use. You can tweak the effects a bit to soften or harshen the tone. But that's about it. And that's fine by me. You don't need to spend hours playing with parameters and fiddling with filters to get a sound.
If there is any caveat I might have it's this: there are some presets that are less useful than others; notably the organique, which tries to emulate...you guessed it...an organ...and not so well. Frankly, I don't think I'll ever find a use for that one. There's also a few darker, dystopian presets, which are in the end not all that impressive. (Besides, dystopian has been done to death anyway) I wish they had included more piano like instruments in their place.
But by and large the instruments are all pretty useful and will no doubt find a home in many of your tracks. They blend really well with larger ensembles, but in my opinion, shine particularly in smaller intimate settings. Check out my demo at the bottom of the page to see what i mean. overall a great buy!
Great for piano accents
Easy to use, good patches. Provides nice accents to cinematic and other styles.
