Cinematic Atmosphere Toolkit: Individual Libraries
Our product Cinematic Atmosphere Toolkit consists of 6 sample libraries. This page allows you to buy one or more the libraries separately, instead of all 6.
The bundle of all 6 offers the greatest discount and features a single file download and a single combined categorised set of presets rather than separate preset folders for each library. These 6 sample libraries work excellently together, both in terms of the sound and in terms of how you might use them. However, we’ve made sure that each separate library is a full-featured product too. Each library comes with 50 presets and our free VST/AU engine, Mirage.

- All 6 libraries (33% off): buy from the bundle page – the bundled version contains a download link to the combined version of the products with combined presets and installer.
Cinematic Atmosphere Toolkit Libraries is designed to be as accessible as possible to producers, composers, musicians, and sound designers. You probably already have what you need if you are producing audio on a reasonably modern computer. There is one exception – Cinematic Atmosphere Toolkit Libraries is not available in the AAX plugin format yet, and so will not run in Pro Tools. Here are the specific requirements:
- Windows: a computer running Windows 7 or higher. Mirage is available as a 32-bit and a 64-bit plugin. However, the installer needs a 64-bit machine. Virtually all Windows machines are 64-bit.
- Mac: macOS 10.12 or higher. Both Intel chips and M1 chips are supported (universal binary).
- A host that can play either a VST2 plugin or an AudioUnit v2 (AU) plugin. Examples of such hosts are Cubase, Ableton Live, Studio One, Reaper, Reason, FL Studio, Logic X, Garage Band, and many more. Logic 9 or older does not support AudioUnit v2 and so this product will not work in it.

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.
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.
A synthesiser for dark textures and expansive padsDesigned for versatile dark ambient and cinematic sound design, Wraith is a synthesiser for pads, drones and synthetic textures. Fill out the background of your production with an expansive pad, or create tension with an atonal drone, or even write a whole underscore sequence using Wraith. This product works inside our sample-based-synthesis VST/AU, Mirage (included free). Wraith is made up of 230 synthetic instruments combining unsettling textures and drones with tranquil atmospheres. These are arranged into three categories: drones, tonal pads, and textures. This massive collection of instruments range from bleak and dissonant to ethereal and serene. As well as these instruments, any of the 80 included presets can be effortlessly customised using Mirage's features. With it, you can mix three different layers, apply LFOs, envelopes, filters and a whole rack of effects to create the exact unique sound that you need.

Picturesque Tonal Resonations Synth
Alive with evolving kinetic energy, Scenic Vibrations has a unique sound that is perfect for cinematic and atmospheric sound design. 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.
Included are over 100 presets featuring intriguing tonal keys, dark pads, basses and pulsing rhythms. Scenic Vibrations is powered by our sample-based synthesis engine, Mirage (included free). 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. Then at the master level, there is a whole rack of effects.
