Vir2 Instruments is proud to present Phoenix: Rise, Hit & Whoosh Builder - an elite cinematic tool for building the perfect dramatic moment that will leave audiences on the edge of their seats. This instrument provides seven hundred production-ready sounds and a powerful interface for quickly layering rises, impacts, and whooshes. With over one hundred and fifty custom presets, it’s never been easier to get the sound you need for that critical moment. Harness the limitless power of Phoenix to hone your sound to the perfect rumble, timbre, and crash!

Phoenix allows you to layer up to eight separate sounds to craft dynamic and punchy moments. Utilize the time knob to precisely sync the crescendo of all engines to the exact moment of impact.

Phoenix Main Page

Drag any sample to one of the eight engines and use the power of Phoenix with your own library of sounds.

We’ve given you full control over any sound you use inside Phoenix. Turn any rise into a hit with our mirroring functionality. For every included rise there is an optional tail that can be activated. Also, perfectly balance your mix with the Lo/Hi cut bi-directional slider.

We gathered sounds from an incredibly wide range of live sources such as pianos, strings, synths, guitars, vocals, cinematic percussion, a Mahler hammer, and many others! These samples were then pushed to the limit using an impressive array of effects to bring you the movie-ready sounds found only in this epic library.

The Mods page allows you to combine effects and modulators to dynamically alter your Risers, Hits, and Whooshes. From pan being controlled by a sawtooth LFO to pitch being controlled by a step sequencer, the Mods page offers a huge range of creative possibilities.

Phoenix: Rise, Hit & Whoosh Builder has been designed for seamless integration with Komplete Kontrol and Maschine, offering you a unique hands-on experience. Manipulate the instruments using the controls of all NKS compatible hardware.
