“Strikeforce is a one-stop shop for big drums. This is what you want!”

– Junkie XL  Mad Max, Deadpool, Tomb Raider


STRIKEFORCE is Laboratory Audio’s flagship cinematic percussion library geared towards the professional composer for a highly expressive and fast workflow. Recorded, mixed and produced in Los Angeles, STRIKEFORCE focuses around a modern large ensemble film percussion sound.

The library includes a vast assortment of massive percussion ensembles, smaller drum ensembles and solo percussion, all with 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. There are 115 patches that 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 together, 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 sit perfectly in the film score mix for a great straight out of the box sound.
