Vir2 Instruments has announced the release of its new Kontakt Player powered instrument library Phoenix: Rise, Hit & Whoosh Builder, an essential tool for all matter of cinematic and commercial productions.

Phoenix aims to be a sound tool for composers and sound designers of films, video games, trailers and more, that delivers tension and release without requiring a huge learning curve.

From the soft whoosh of a passing ghost, to the devastation of a train wreck scene, it’s never been easier to get the sound you need for that critical moment. Using up to eight powerful engines, you can perfectly time your tension and release for the greatest impact. Harness the limitless power of Phoenix to hone your sound to the perfect rumble, timbre, and crash!

Phoenix comes with 700 unique samples right out of the box, but rising from the ashes of competing tools is the ability to load your own .wav or .aif samples right into the interface. This gives you the choice of using our meticulously selected and edited sound set or going full custom with whatever sounds you choose. Let Phoenix do all the hard timing work for you!

Other features include a beat/time sync on Risers and Whooshes, a full effects rack, mirroring, filtering, Rise and Whoosh timing control, and the ability to trigger all the engines together or independently with ease.

Phoenix is available at Big Fish Audio and from distributor Plugin Boutique for the introductory price of $149.95 USD through November 19th, 2021 (regular $199.95 USD).
