Mirage Libraries (VST/AU)
Synthesiser for wistful dreams and eerie nightmares
Nightmares, dreams and obscure twisted illusions. In collaboration with Beautiful Void Audio, we bring you Deep Conjuring: a sound-design synthesiser for creating dreamlike instruments. It’s ideal for designing beautiful, strange, and otherworldly tones that skirt the edge between sounding organic and synthetic. You’ll find it useful for effortlessly adding mood to your music: everything from nostalgic melancholy to harsh horror dread. It’s powered by Mirage (VST/AU), our sample-based synthesiser engine; which is included for free. Any of the 92 ‘instruments’ that make up Deep Conjuring can be loaded into Mirage’s 3 layers for further processing with features including as envelopes, filters and LFOs, and finally processed using the rack of included master effects.
Clean-tone squeaky gate sound design
Ever opened a squeaky metal gate and thought, “I want to use that sound in my music”? Well, now you can! Various metal gate squeaks were recorded, cleaned and processed to make this genuinely useful sound-design sample library. Each sample is available as an ‘instrument’ inside our sample-based-synth VST/AU engine, Mirage – included for free. You’ll also find 40 presets, including plucks, pads, basses and leads, ideal for soundtracks, atmosphere or adding a unique edge to any genre. The resonation caused by the gate hinges produced a surprisingly clean and consistent tone – almost similar in character to a cello.
Most of the samples were put through a granular synth to lengthen them. As part of this, it was possible to capture both soft and intense versions of the same sound. You can smoothly modulate between these 2 states using Mirage’s dynamics knob, allowing for expressive performances.
Terracotta pots: a tonal-percussion instrument
Organic, alive and earthy – Terracotta is an utterly unique melodic-percussion instrument made from terracotta pots. This instrument’s charming bell-like tones are ideal for adding a tangible vibrancy to percussion sections, arpeggios and melodic lines. It’s powered by our sampled-based-synthesis engine VST/AU, Mirage, which is included for free. This flexible engine has a 3-layer structure for blending sounds as well as all the features you’d expect from a modern synth, such as filters, envelopes and effects.
25 different pots were sampled to make this instrument featuring 4 round robin and 4 velocity layers. As well as this, Terracotta comes with a handful of ‘mixer’ instruments designed to be blended with the main sound. This product also comes with 40 presets for instant production-ready results.
