“Nearing our destination, we were awakened from a long journeys cryosleep to witness the splendor of Orion before our very eyes. Without hesitation, I suited up and ventured outside of the ship, into the lush nebular spectrum of light.
As I slowly drifted, surrounded by a stellar nursery of unfathomable magnitude that was held within an infinite void, I felt a freedom I had never experienced before
…a deep connection with the Universe around me …an eternal oneness with all that is, was, and will ever be. Our destiny was now Interstellar, and our evolution is inevitable, as we venture forth into the Cosmos.”

Amazonia (The Amazon Rainforest), is the world’s largest intact forest. 2.6 million square miles in the Amazon basin, about 40 percent of South America, with 4,100 miles of winding rivers. It’s home to more than 24 million people in Brazil alone, including hundreds of thousands of Indigenous Peoples belonging to 180 different groups.
There’s a reason the Amazon was the place that inspired scientists to coin the term “biodiversity.” The region is home to 10 percent of all plant and animal species known on Earth. There are approximately 40,000 species of plants, more than 400 species of mammals, 3,000 freshwater fish species. and more than 370 types of reptiles. Birds add almost 1,300, and the insects reach millions.
In addition to its unparalleled diversity of life, the Amazon plays an essential role in helping to control the entire planet’s atmospheric carbon levels. The Amazon Basin stores approximately 100 billion metric tons of carbon, more than ten times the annual global emissions from fossil fuels. The Amazon stores carbon dioxide and prevents it from entering the atmosphere and fueling climate change.
Deforestation, on the other hand, releases that carbon into the air, making climate change worse. Because of this, deforestation accounts for about 10 to 15 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. Losing the Amazon means more carbon emissions and a warmer world. A healthy Amazon Rainforest is vital for all life on Earth, and needs to be protected. Because if we lose the Amazon, we lose everything.
Ambient Mirage is a sampled instrument for Kontakt that focuses exclusively on the Curtis CEM-3328 24 dB Voltage Controlled Low Pass Filter Chips that were at the Analog heart of every Ensoniq Mirage 8-bit sampler.
To compliment the main Curtis CEM-3328 sound source, Ambient Mirage also includes vintage Voices, Choirs, Fantasy, Synthesizers, Strings, Winds and Percussive single Instrument elements, which are combined into deeply programmed, modern sounding, and very playable Multi patches, for a truly Ambient sound experience.
Also included are very rare samples from Triton’s Sound Process Operating System that transformed the Mirage from a Sampler, into a full blown 4 oscillator Synthesizer
This release includes 45 one of a kind patches: 25 “8-bit Vintage” Single Instruments, and 20 “Advanced Modern” Ambient Multi Instruments. To learn more, and hear audio demo’s, click here to enter the Ambient Mirage description page.
