Add tension and grit to your music

Urban Warfare is a library of 83 presets for the U-He Zebra 2 synth. It's designed for cinematic action scenes, thrillers, video games, and trailers.

Urban Warfare is mainly composed by contemporary cinematic distorted sounds. You will find no beautiful pads here. This library is about mayhem, distortion, rhythm, tension, saturation, analog fatness... with more distortion added on top!

This library was inspired by the work of composers such as Lorne Balfe, Tom Holkenborg, Trevor Morris, Sarah Schachner, among others.
