Sonikscape by SampleTraxx Review

Sonikscape is a collaboration between SampleTraxx and German sound designer Sebastian Emling. This team also produced Cinematic Zither and Old Broken Piano.

SampleTraxx did send a review copy with no strings attached.


You do download after purchase the library and unpack it to the final location on your hard disk.


Sonikscapes includes selected sound within 12 categories. The included sounds are unmistakably unearthly and designed to support the modern composer.

Sonikscape Categories and included sounds:
50 Cinematic Soundscape
22 Custom tones
27 Vocal Atmosphere
24 Bowed Cymbals
13 Flute Soundscape
19 Basic Tones
59 Synthetic Drones/Pads
40 Vocal Breath Fx
20 Abstract Textures
22 Low End Rumble
17 Noise Radio
27 Designed Vinyl Noise/Sources


Sonikscapes is a collection of tones and sounds produced to assist composer and producer working on the next cinematic movie trailer, breathtaking film and television score or dark ambient music. The included drones, atmospheres, pads, some scary vocal effects and more will be a good addition to your toolbox to create tensions, scary moments and get the audience all excited about the scene showing.

Some longer samples are evolving and can be used as a sound bed and you find enough elements in this library and other libraries from Sampletraxx to come up with an excellent first pass of a score. What I do recommend is running those through additional effect available for example by Audio Damage.

Rating:  Four out of five stars

Sonikscapes is another excellent collection of score elements when producing underscores, effects, dark atmospheres, cinematic soundscapes, ambient music, horror and thriller sound scores.
