Augmented Woodwinds

Augmented WOODWINDS unites dynamically sampled instruments with state-of-the-art synthesis in an intuitive and breathtaking interface, delivering a rich, reedy and redefined range of woodwind sounds - morph to your mood, from dark and denatured to bright and elegant.

Bringing together precision sampling and multilayered synthesis, Augmented WOODWINDS goes further than an orchestral composition tool. Offering both crisp detail and analog-processed flare of carefully captured woodwind timbres, you can choose to morph, transmute and transfigure the sound into something completely unheard and unconventional. Whether you're a composer, producer, sound designer, or anything in between, effortlessly control an enhanced hybrid ensemble that will inspire your production, and move your audience.

Augmented WOODWINDS' hybrid palette unlocks the warm and crisp power that wind instruments can bring to your projects. Explore 300 presets and play sounds cast from elemental solo Clarinet, Bassoon, English Horn and Flute, as well as ensemble recordings with 11 players - some of which have been uniquely finished with vintage FX hardware. Build your own ensemble with Augmented WOODWINDS' multi-engine flexibility. Experiment with 2 layers, each containing 2 sound sources, and weave your own custom combination of sampling and synthesis for an electrifying wind sound.

Augmented WOODWINDS' built-in sample library has been recorded and curated to be every bit as delicate, detailed, and expressive as if conducting your own at-home ensemble. 11 musicians performed as soloists and as an ensemble, with 56 articulations across a range of wind instruments and additional processed content for a more futuristic and avant-garde effect. Captured in detail with world-class microphones and preamps, ensuring that every sample breathes with accuracy and energy. Whether you need an evocative single instrument voice, a huge vibrato sustain, or anything in between, this library has what you need.

Discover sounds from 4 synth engines, from subtle textural embellishment to abstract sonic art: Virtual Analog, Granular, Wavetable, and Harmonic - alongside the Simpler engine. Inspired by over 20 years of synthesis expertise and engineering, from the minds that materialized Pigments and V Collection, this is more than a list of synth presets. These are entire instruments within an instrument, responsive and tactile, providing everything from emotive Hans Zimmer soundscapes, to misty detuned ambiences and pads gleaming with harmonic detail.
