Juggernaut is Impact Soundworks' flagship library for modern scoring and soundtrack production. Available for Kontakt 5 and Kontakt Player 5, Juggernaut is a comprehensive tool for unique electronic percussion, bass and FX sounds inspired by the cutting-edge sounds heard in many major scores, trailers, and EDM productions. With two custom scripted engines (described below, Tonal and Drums), the instrument can be used with factory presets, quickly customized piece-by-piece, or used to create new sounds and kits from scratch.
The library was created by a team of award-winning composers and sound designers including Mick Gordon (Need for Speed, Killer Instinct), Jordan Fehr (DKC Returns, Hotline Miami), Erik Ekholm (countless TV/film productions), Andrew Aversa (Soulcalibur V) and several others. The primary design goal of Juggernaut was fresh, polished, and modern sounds as opposed to rehashes of old drum machines or generic house/trance-type kits and FX; composers in particular will find a wide breadth of highly usable material.
