Layer together sounds for complex soundscapes and pads
Wraith is designed for layering – combining different sounds within the synthesiser to create new timbres. This can be intuitively done with the engine that powers it, Mirage. Three layers are arranged across the GUI, each containing numerous controls for customising the character of that part.
Uncharted sound design
Something to be aware of with Wraith is that some of the instruments of Wraith are multi-tonal, meaning a single sound has multiple pitches in one note. This is by design. We have found that this results in an unsettling character that is hard to recreate with monotonal sounds. Such instruments are invaluable for laying down a bed of tense atmosphere from which you can build on top of using more harmonically-precise instrumentation.
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.
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 VST/AU synthesizer combines unsettling textures and drones with tranquil atmospheres.
