"Kickforge is the tool to get an A-list kick sound in your mix in less than five minutes," commented Drumforge co-founder, Joey Sturgis. "The sounds were carefully created using a blend of classic and experimental engineering and mixing techniques over the course of a year. We've tested these sounds on hundreds of mixes, and the tool we created surrounding those sounds really allows you to come up with unlimited usable kick sounds over and over again. Kickforge was designed to give you any competitive kick sound you'd ever want in a modern production."
