  • Grant Borland (Composer)

    “The quality of this library is unbeatable which is why you see it so frequently used among composers. One of the things I love most about this library is the sound of its Mid-low end. I’ll typically layer this library underneath other libraries to really give it a deep, boomy low end that sounds huge in the production. Get your hands on this library, and you’ll know exactly what I mean in a matter of seconds!”

    "Top rating in sound, flexibility, dynamic, concept and handling." // "Hats off!" // "The sounds are great even in the smallest dynamic level and can be increased to a true drum spectacle." // "Action Strikes is a real hit - well designed, easy to use and it sounds just great!" // "Composers get a tool for film, games and trailer music composition that's inspiring, absolutely practical and saves precious time." // "My recommendation: It's a no-brainer!"

    "I love composing and writing action sequences and when I heard about your product and watching the demo I was blown up with the quality of it. Action strikes not only helps give my percussion that professional sound that I strive to but it does it in a fraction of the time that I would have spent putting it together instrument by instrument. I can go on and on but with all honesty I simply love this product."
