Smooth sustained stringsDesigned for creating lush, ethereal backdrops and chords: Arctic Strings is a sustained strings instrument that's housed in our powerful sample-based-synth engine, Mirage (a VST/AU plugin that is included for free). The whole string section was recorded playing long sustained notes both softly and loudly; we turned this into a single, uncomplicated virtual instrument with controllable dynamics. Furthermore, you can shape the sound to fit your track by using Mirage's features, such as attack, release, reverb, and tuning. Included are 42 presets featuring both realistic ways of using strings, as well as diverse sound design. This product is the dead-simple solution for adding warm, delicate, atmospheric tones to your track; either by itself or alongside other string libraries. If you are a Kontakt user, you might consider the Kontakt version of this product.
Clean-tone squeaky gate sound designEver 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.

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.

Create tension for drama, ambience in an emotional passage and even evoke dread in a horror setting. This customisable tool is based on a set of unique ‘sustain’ recordings by sound design veteran, Si Begg. Materials such as sheets of metal, koto strings, bass guitar strings and suspended steel frames were made to resonate with a surface transducer. The sound is something beautifully organic yet unfamiliar.

The core of Mirage is three layers that can be used to blend sounds together. Each layer has LFOs, filters, a volume envelope, loop controls and more.
