Laboratory Audio STRIKEFORCE v2.0.1

STRIKEFORCE is Laboratory Audio’s flagship cinematic percussion library aimed at professional composers who require a highly expressive and fast workflow. Recorded, mixed and produced in Los Angeles, STRIKEFORCE centers around contemporary large ensemble percussion sound for film.

The library includes a vast assortment of massive percussion ensembles, smaller drum ensembles and solo percussion, all with a layout that allows the user to go from a smaller ensemble (or even solo) sound to a large group / big ensemble sound within a single patch.

115 patches feature this unique and very cool layout and are recorded with 6 split-out dynamic layers and 16 round robins. Also included in the library are an assortment of anvil hits, solo and ensemble, sub-booms, impact hits and metallic tick tocks (32 RR) for a total of 129 unique patches.

We focused our efforts on setting up practical and musical mixes instead of presenting a multitude of mic positions that use up system resources and slow down the workflow. The library features two curated complete mixes that smoothly blend and can be controlled via the mod-wheel. 

A “close mix” with tight dynamic room, and a “far mix” for a wider more epic cinematic sound featuring more of the hall. Both mixes blend seamlessly together and can easily be controlled via the mod wheel for a closer or a more pushed-back far sound. We took great care in creating a highly dynamic and playable instrument that sits perfectly in the film score mix for a great straight-out-of-the-box sound.
