Mercury Sound Design has launched a new collection of presets for the Zebra 2 software synthesizer from u-he.

Designed for cinematic action scenes, thrillers, video games, and trailers, the 83 presets in the Urban Warfare soundset aim to add tension an grit to your music.

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.

Urban Warfare features

  • Aggressive basses.
  • Tense percussion loops, pulses, and arps.
  • Gritty distorted leads and sequences.
  • Unsettling pads and drones.
  • Trailer effects.
  • All presets are tagged and feature modwheel and Performance modulations to drastically manipulate the sound.

The soundset is available for purchase for $20 USD. Use coupon code solidsnake at the checkout to get a 25% discount, valid through November. You can also download a free demo pack with 5 presets at the product page.
