OVER 1,700 BREATHTAKING SOUNDS
Recorded and delivered at the superior fidelity of 96khz, 24-bit quality, TRAILER XPRESSIONS II contains over 1,775 sampled sounds that have been intuitively programmed into 47 instruments and organized into ready-made construction kits. That means it takes just seconds, not hours, to find the perfect sound for any trailer or hybrid track. With samples derived from instruments, field recordings, vehicles and many other sources – all processed with BOOM’s usual flair for sonic perfection, this product squarely defines the Sample Logic mission to “blur the line between music and sound design”.
Selected for TXII are only the most detailed atmospheres and drones for suspenseful scoring and risers and stingers that will have listeners on the edge of their seat. The brams will blow woofers to pieces, and the spine-tingling scrapes will terrify any moviegoer. With powerful whooshes, reverses and hits, this toolkit is the premier virtual instrument for gut-wrenching action impacts and badass trailer slams!
CURATED SAMPLES FROM THE BOOM LIBRARY VAULT
After months of meticulous research and auditioning all of the fantastic sounds available in BOOM’s archives, Sample Logic has handpicked a selection of the most incredible trailer sounds ever designed. These are not just any old SFX samples, but a curated collection of “gold standard” sounds especially chosen to be versatile, flexible and work perfectly with one another.
50% BOOM LIBRARY SAMPLES + 50% SAMPLE LOGIC VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT = 100% PERFECTION
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 II, the goal was to simplify the creative process by delivering the best of both worlds, a sound library of license-free insanely expressive audio files produced by BOOM Library and a dynamic virtual instrument developed by Sample Logic. Ownership of TXII grants a lifetime license for the use of all of its contents. No future licensing or royalty fees are required. In this way, TXII 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), TXII 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 virtual instrument interface, so as they are played, an info text is displayed in the GUI to indicate the sound file folder location.
TXII contains sounds from the following commercial BOOM Library products:
• CINEMATIC HITS
• CINEMATIC METAL
• CINEMATIC TRAILERS DESIGNED
• DESTRUCTION DESIGNED

THE TXII INTERFACE: POTENT & STRESS-FREE CONTROLS
Developed for the industry-standard Native Instruments Kontakt sampler, TRAILER XPRESSIONS II has been intuitively scripted. Through in-depth research and extended focus groups with leading trailer and film composers, Sample Logic was able to decode, define, and implement the core set of interface controls that musicians want, use and require.
GLOBAL & INDEPENDENT MODE
New for TXII, is Global and Independent Modes for controlling how the user interface parameter controls are applied to each key/note pressed. This allows each sample to keep it’s own independent parameters and controls (all user customizable), or all samples to be affected at once and the same.
MULTI-PROCESSOR MASTER EFFECTS
Along with indispensable effects and parameters, Sample Logic specifically designed customized mastering effects for the TRAILER XPRESSIONS series called “Energizer” and “Polisher” – multiprocessor effects for dynamic and dramatic sound shaping. The Energizer brings an edge to the sounds, while Polisher adds a final enhanced sparkle. All of these global controls can quickly be assigned to an external MIDI controller and are an integral part of the UI.
SAVE YOUR FAVORITE SOUNDS
Of course this wouldn’t be complete without an easy way to access your favorite sounds. While playing a key, pressing the heart button will earmark favorites within each construction kit. Doing so will make each sample’s key on the keymap light up red. The instrument will recall the sounds every time a new instance is loaded.
WHAT THE PROS SAY
- “In the trailer world, sounding new and fresh is key. Trailer Xpressions II picks up where the original TX left off and improves everything… Lots more ready-to-go trailer oriented sounds and a simple and intuitive interface with even more of the features that I wanted.”
- “No matter what style of music you make, if you want energy, impact, or build, Trailer Xpressions II will deliver.”
- “This library is very very useful for me. Usually, I use BOOM’s sounds for making layers with orchestrated arrangements. This often takes a long time to find the sound I need. All of this has now changed with TX2’s powerful and simple interface finding the sound I want and being able to shape it quickly is a breeze”
- “These fabulous instruments, while perfect for producing epic trailer music, are also a serious go-to for scoring anything dark, sinister, dramatic or in need of real sonic power. I’m already using them on a video game score. Really worth checking out.”
