Cinematic Soundtrack and Trailer Tools
Winner of ANR’s Sonic Joy Award for one of the best Sample Libraries of 2017
Now at version 1.7, Reflection is an inspiring Cinematic sample library and tool for composing Soundtracks and trailers. Perfect for anything from a subtle underscore to driving action and a whole let more (just check out the ’80’s Toy Heaven Demo track!).
It contains 435 designed presets with everything from Evolving Soundscapes & Distorted ambience, to Lush Pad & complex Rhythms.
It has a highly flexible interface with a multitude of tools for designing your own sounds, rhythms and arpeggiations either using your own samples or the included Raw patches.
The tools include various envelopes to shape the sound, insert and send effects, sequencers and LFO’s to create tempo synced rhythms / pulses and an arpeggiator with powerful randomisation features. In addition, up to 3 samples can be layered and mixed either using the included samples or importing your own.
Each of the 3 layers can be designed using individual settings including Amp Envelope, Filter Envelope, Sample Start Point, LFO Rhythms, Filter Sequences and individual levels for the Send Effects. All adding up to some very powerful tools to shape your sounds.
The 950+ included samples are exclusively recorded from two 80’s ‘toy’ keyboard and processed to get the best sound quality. The sampled waveforms have a lovely raw & imperfect character, and are a great starting point for the library. Some of the samples were also ‘mangled’ through various means to produce more complex sounds.
All the samples were then meticulously designed in Reflection taking advantage of all the tools available to give the 435 presets provided with the instrument.
There are also 96 Raw Starter Patches containing 2 and 3 layers of samples for you to design your own sounds from scratch if you don’t fell up to importing your own.
The majority of the designed patches are mapped from C0/C1 to C6 give completely different sonic feel at the opposite ends. At the lower end, the stretched sounds produce some gorgeous deep Pads and low Bass, whilst the upper notes can offer nice smooth mellow Pads & playable Synths. You are encouraged to fully explore both with all presets to get the most out of Reflection!
Computer music magazine gave version 1.0 8/10 and said “..there is real depth and beauty to be found”.
