With over 140 original samples ranging from natural field recordings to highly-processed synthetic textures, the collection spans a wide range of inspiring sounds, from haunting atmospheres, dystopian soundscapes and creepy FX, to angelic pads and soothing ambience. Granite Horror is the ideal expansion for musicians, composers and sound-designers looking for a distinctive edge.

All sounds come production-ready out-of-the-box, and will effortlessly weave into your compositions. Combined with the transformative power of Granite’s sound-engine, Granite Horror provides a rich sonic toolbox, brimming with inspiration and creative potential.
