Welcome to TRAILER XPRESSIONS 3, pushing scoring and sound design to powerful new places. Sample Logic is proud to present the next chapter in their wildly successful TRAILER XPRESSIONS series. This time around we’re laser-focused on explosive one-shot hits & effects combined with the more ambient side of sound design with vocals, harmonic textures, drones and atmospheres. This collection of sounds has a versatility unrivaled in the trailer effects world. The TX3 interface brings speed and ease-of-use to your workflow like never before, making it seamlessly simple to craft the right cue for any cinematic production.

With TRAILER XPRESSIONS we up the ante on the sound-shaping possibilities, so that you can wring every ounce of musicality out of these samples. This time around we’ve added controls that can wildly transform audio into creative rhythms and mangled, reversed soundscapes. The REVERSE button can be applied to all samples or just a selected few, beginning playback from the sample start slider and running in reverse, back to the start. Try adding delay and convolution reverb to craft your own otherworldly drones. Stretch just one sample across the entire keyboard with the new STRETCH button, perfect for high-pitched zings or rumbling growls. There are now a full range of ADSR controls, for shaping the amplitude envelope of each sound. The low and high cut EQ filters have been upgraded with full LFO automation to enable you to perform blistering Transformers-style gated effects or slower filtered evolutions.

Most trailer sound products and albums require that each sound is licensed on a per-use basis and often are only available as raw audio files, leaving end-users on their own to crop and manipulate the sounds before they can even be used. With TRAILER XPRESSIONS 3, the goal was to simplify the creative process by bringing you the best of both worlds. We’ve delivered a “gold standard” sound library of license-free and insanely expressive audio files produced by SAMPLETRAXX, wrapped in a dynamic virtual instrument developed by Sample Logic. Ownership of TX3 grants a lifetime license for the use of all of its contents. No future licensing or royalty fees are required. In this way, TX3 delivers a world-class product that provides amazing trailer sounds with the flexibility and creative ease to suit anyone’s workflow. In addition to the construction kit virtual instruments (with a UI designed for morphing and sculpting), TX3 provides direct access to the raw audio files that drive the instruments. These audio files are delivered in .wav format and can be directly imported into any DAW. Each audio file name is indicated right inside the interface, so you can locate the original audio files with ease.

Developed for the industry-standard Native Instruments Kontakt sampler, TRAILER XPRESSIONS 3 has been intuitively scripted to implement the core set of interface controls that trailer composers and musicians want, use and require. This includes:

  • NEW – Reverse Mode to instantly play each sample in reverse
  • NEW – Master hi-cut and lo-cut filters with LFO modulators to easily shape and morph the sounds
