Phoenix
 

A Cinematic Synth based on Smooth Synth Strings and Choirs

A toolkit of cinematic sounds

The core sounds of this library are six synthetic strings and choirs instruments. These sounds are useful even before processing. Ethereal choirs and lush string pads can be made instantly. However, the three-layer structure of Mirage allows you to take these sounds even further. Complimentary sounds can be layered together and modulated with LFOs and filters, and reverbs can be applied. Using these features, it is easy to create rich textures and soundscapes with movement. But this is by no means the extent of Phoenix’s capabilities.

Keys and bass sounds can also be produced. In the included presets you will find many examples of these types of sounds such as low rumbles, plucky staccatos and clean subs. Phoenix also works excellently when layered with real instruments. The smoothness of the sounds of this product gell superbly with them, enhancing their richness and width.

Uses of Phoenix

You might make use of Phoenix in a film/TV/video game score. A preset such as Shimmering Cavern could be used to create a sense of wonder and beauty. This preset uses three sound layers spread across three octaves. LFOs subtly modulate the volumes of these layers, and a touch of bit-crush distortion is used, resulting in a sound that shimmers in the high frequencies. Similarly to this, there are many other presets included in this product that have an emotional character. This track could be added to by using the Bass Pluck preset with a low pass filter applied to it. This would work excellently as a driving ‘underscore’ element.

Another possible use for Phoenix might be in an ambient track. A preset like Smoothest Pad might be used to play wide-spanning chords, gently transitioning into each other in the background. A Keys preset like Melody Drops could be used on top of this for a distant emotive sounding melody. A Bass preset such as Sub Bass Repeater could be used to fill out the low end, and give drive to the track with its pulsing pattern.

A third possibility might be in a track outside of the ambient or cinematic genres. Phoenix can be used to add character to your electronic/rock/hip hop track. It can be used as something to bring depth to the background or to layer up with your real performances. The various strings presets of Phoenix, in particular, might be useful in these situations. These synthetic strings have a smooth organic sound to them, similar to their real counterparts, but with a softer character. Phoenix might also be useful in writing a breakdown in a track – add atmosphere and a sense of open space – before bringing back the drive of your track.

Specifications

What is Mirage?

Mirage is our sample-based synthesis engine. It is a VST/AU synthesiser plugin that features a powerful set of controls for processing our custom sample libraries, such as Phoenix or Wraith (currently libraries can only be made with our internal tools).

Mirage is designed for rapid, flexible sound design and for ease-of-use.

A rack of built-in Effects

Another technique that sound designers use to shape the character of sounds is by applying effects. Mirage features a rack of such effects for this purpose. Built-in effects such as distortion, bit-crush, chorus and stereo widener can be used to enhance the sound with extra harmonics or extra simulated width.

The compressor can be used to control dynamics or add punch, and the filter can be used to isolate just the frequencies you need. Mirage also has reverb and delay effects for real space simulation. These are great for sound design too.

One of the reverb effects is a convolution reverb, this is typically used to add a real-sounding reverberation effect to the signal by using samples of real spaces (impulse responses). However, by substituting the sample of a real space with an abstract sample, interesting effects can be produced. Mirage features both realistic impulse responses and abstract ones for creative sound design.

Minimum friction from your mind to your DAW

Mirage is designed to not get in your way. It is fast to load up and is CPU efficient. It has a vector-based GUI that can be resized so that it will work on any size screen. The controls are laid out in an intuitive way, and a full description of what each control does can be viewed by hovering the mouse over it for a moment. Mirage also comes with a PDF user manual with all of the nitty-gritty details covered.


2. Wraith

 
Wraith
 

Designed for versatile dark ambient and cinematic sound design, Wraith is a synthesiser for pads, drones and synthetic textures.

It’s comprised of 230 audio samples grouped into 3 categories: Drones, Tonal and Textures and over 80 playable presets.

It’s housed in our powerful sampler engine Mirage, which is structured around 3 audio layers that can be controlled separately, and an effects rack with distortion, chorus, reverbs and more.

Wraith is an ideal sound design tool for creating atmospheres, backgrounds and tension.

KEY FEATURES

  • 83 presets that are ready to use for production
  • Wraith is playable, it’s more than just samples – it can be controlled with MIDI CC, velocity and the sustain pedal.
  • It includes randomising features allowing for quick trialling of new sounds
  • Easy to use – it has a sensible GUI layout which can be resized
  • 3 layers can be blended together and controlled with an envelope, filters, EQ, LFO, and sample loop settings including crossfade
  • Effects rack with distortion, bit crush, compressor, chorus, reverb, delay and convolution reverb to further shape the sound
  • Works in any Windows or Mac DAW that can host a VST or AU, no other requirements
  • Sounds with movement and character, both dissonant and harmonic

230 Samples and 80 presets

Wraith contains a huge collection of sounds, each organised into one of three categories.

The Drones and Tonal sets that comprise the largest bulk of this expansion allow for quick prototyping of complex scenes and soundscapes featuring gritty low-end, rich drones full of depth, and granular harmonic content contrasted with smooth and silky Ambient tones perfect for adding a bit of sweetness and emotion to the cold and hopeless vibe of the bleak drones.

The Textures folder acts in turn as a glue between the two main categories, making it possible to either make even more complex sounds through an extra layer of sound or substitute either of the two main layers for further variety and flexibility.

Overall, this is a great collection of sounds to add to your palette if you’re on the lookout for new and fresh modern cinematic tools capable of taking your music to obscure and uncharted places, which, within the Mirage engine conforms a great playground for extremely creative sound design.

Audio crafted by sound designer and composer Carlos Butler

Carlos Butler, who is also known for his sound design project, Temporal Geometry, created the samples of Wraith. For Wraith he has drawn from years of experience as a composer of ambient and cinematic music which he releases under the name Rildrim.

His skill for tonality and for making samples that can be used in a practical, musical way shine through in this library.

What is Mirage?

Mirage is our sample-based synthesis engine. It is a VST/AU synthesiser plugin that features a powerful set of controls for processing our custom sample libraries, such as Phoenix or Wraith (currently libraries can only be made with our internal tools).

Mirage is designed for rapid, flexible sound design and for ease-of-use.

Designed for sound layering

As sound designers and foley artists know well, layering is an excellent way of designing new sounds using existing samples. Mirage allows for up to three different sounds to be controlled separately and layered together.

The layers in Mirage have the following controls unique to them: pitch, volume and pan, filter, volume envelope, LFO, EQ, sample loop settings and MIDI settings. These controls facilitate an incredible amount of manipulation over the original sound source.

A rack of built-in Effects

Another technique that sound designers use to shape the character of sounds is by applying effects. Mirage features a rack of such effects for this purpose. Built-in effects such as distortion, bit-crush, chorus and stereo widener can be used to enhance the sound with extra harmonics or extra simulated width.

The compressor can be used to control dynamics or add punch, and the filter can be used to isolate just the frequencies you need. Mirage also has reverb and delay effects for real space simulation. These are great for sound design too.

However, by substituting the sample of a real space with an abstract sample, interesting effects can be produced. Mirage features both realistic impulse responses and abstract ones for creative sound design.

Designed to be Played

For compelling and dynamic performances, you often want to control the parameters of the sound as you play. We naturally do this in real life. For example, when singing a melody, we make some parts louder and vary the tremolo intensity. Mirage helps with enabling this type of modulation too.

The volume at both the layer level and the master level can be controlled with MIDI velocity. Sustain pedal (MIDI CC 64) is also fully supported, enabling you to hold notes using a foot pedal. On top of that, any parameter in Mirage can be controlled by knobs or sliders on your physical MIDI controller. This is simply a matter of right-clicking the parameter, selecting ‘MIDI learn’ and then moving your controller. And of course, Mirage can also be automated by your DAW.

3. Music Box Suite

 
Music Box Suite
 

Realistic music boxes and sound design VST/AU

Two multi-sampled music boxes

At the core of Music Box Suite are 2 multi-sampled music boxes, both of which feature 4 round-robin. The first is the Victorian music box. This instrument has a warm antique tone. The second is the Tiny music box. This has a bright, sweet sound. By tastefully layering these 2 instruments, new compelling sounds can be made.

Included in Music Box Suite are a few of the winding-up sounds and the ‘whur’ of the music box device. These give you the option to create a fully realistic music box piece.

Organic sound design

This product features a collection of complimentary samples that are designed to work with the real music box samples. This expands Music Box Suite’s potential from more than just realistic music box emulation. The 40 included presets demonstrate this; there are keys, pads and ambient textures. These complimentary sounds are primarily morphed versions of real music box samples, however, there are also a few additional instruments such as a guitar pluck, a glockenspiel and synth strings.

Using Mirage’s simple interface, instruments can be layered, reversed, looped, tuned and distorted. This pairing of Music Box Suite’s samples inside Mirage’s engine results in a unique tool that is ideal for adding a charming melodic aspect to your track, whether it be an electronic piece or a cinematic one.

5. Scenic Vibrations

 
Scenic Vibrations
 

Picturesque Tonal Resonations Synth – Unique Scenic Sounds

An Organic Synth
The sound of Scenic Vibrations is primarily organic in nature – with intriguing harmonics and natural swells of intensity. But at the same time, it is not wholly familiar to the ear. This dual-character makes Scenic Vibrations fit well with both your synthetic sound design and real instrumentation.

As well as a companion synth, Scenic Vibrations can take the lead too. Melodic lines played with Scenic Vibrations are ear-catching and thoroughly unique sounding.

Surface Transducer
The 30 instruments that make up Scenic Vibrations are created from a set of recordings of metal objects resonating with a surface transducer. Objects such as sheets of metal, koto strings, bass guitar strings and suspended steel frames were used. A surface transducer is a small electronic device that can be placed onto any resonant surface. When a signal is sent to the device, it causes the surface to audibly vibrate and resonate; in essence, turning the object into a speaker. Each sample is roughly 20 seconds long and has been tuned and made into a seamless loop.

30 Categorised Instruments
Each sample has been made into a separate ‘instrument’ in Mirage. This means you can control each aspect separately, and layer up different sounds in Mirage’s three-layer architecture. These instruments are conveniently categorised based on timbre.

  • The first category is called Basic, which contains waveform-like samples. These samples don’t have a massive amount of movement in them. They are the bedrock sounds, perfect for blending with other layers.
  • Secondly is the Core category. This is the largest. It features a set of tonal resonations, most of which are musically consonant. Here you will find fluttering vibrations, swelling oscillations and tonal hums.
  • Lastly is the Dark category. This contains sounds that are more edgy, experimental and sometimes dissonant. These are an excellent component for creating dark ambiences and tension.

Customisable Sound Design
It is easy to create custom sounds or edit presets with Scenic Vibrations. Mirage, the VST/AU engine that powers it, features a three-layer core. On each layer, you can load up one of the 30 instruments and control its volume envelope, EQ, LFO, pitch and much more. By blending together multiple sounds, you can create new timbres. And with the ‘randomise all instruments’ button, you can quickly trial a whole new set of instruments and see what fits in your track.

Sound Design by Si Begg, utilising two decades of experience
Si Begg has been working in the music industry for over two decades. His work recently has been in part on wide-ranging scores for film, TV and trailers, including Netflix show Lovesick. His technical skill and ear for usable sound design shine through in Scenic Vibrations. The sampling, editing and lots of the presets are made by him. Scenic Vibrations already plays a part in his professional work.

Over 100 presets
Scenic Vibrations comes with everything you need for adding production-ready sounds to your track. Just use the preset browser to try some of the included 107 factory presets which were designed my Si Begg and Sam Windell. There are many types of sounds among these. Including suspenseful keys, dark ambiences, fluttering pads and droning bass-pads. Once you find the sound you like, it is possible to further customise it with Mirage’s easy-to-use interface.
