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.

Hosted in a Powerful Sampler Engine

Wraith is a sample library for Mirage – FrozenPlain’s sampler engine. This engine is included as part of Wraith.

Mirage features three separate audio layers designed for rapid and agile sound design and layering. Each layer has a sample selector with a drop-down menu, a pair of arrow buttons to traverse the list of samples, plus a randomiser that loads random samples from the current library. There’s also a core set of parameters per layer that include volume, pan, detune and pitch, as well as mute and solo buttons.

Further down the audio chain we find an additional set of controls per layer like an amplitude envelope, a multi-mode filter, a two band EQ with peak and shelf filters, an LFO with four different shapes, retrigger and free mode, volume, filter, pan and pitch modulation targets, and a speed slider with sync and free modes, a loop section with start and end points, crossfade, three play modes including ping-pong, reverse and forward, and a playback section to define the sample starting point. It also features a MIDI settings module where you can transpose incoming MIDI notes, enable or disable keytracking, switch between polyphonic and monophonic mode, and choose between six different MIDI velocity mapping curves.

At the group or master level, the instrument features an effects rack with everything from distortion and bit crush to delay, chorus and two different types of reverb. It also has a pair of randomisers to load random sounds for the three layers at once and another one to load random presets from the presets list, as well as master knobs for velocity sensitivity and volume.

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.
