From world instruments recorded by legendary musicians, to custom-made and found sounds, cutting-edge synthetic drums and basses, resonant timbres, brutal electric guitars and beyond, our sample libraries will inspire you without making your workflow complicated.

Put succinctly, every Impact Soundworks instrument is designed with composers in mind.

Our History

Our company was founded in 2008 by composers Andrew Aversa and Will Roget, II. At the time, there were several large virtual instrument companies, but few developers creating focused, affordable and flexible libraries featuring more unusual and unique sounds. We noticed plenty of in-depth orchestral sounds, but more unusual instruments were not sampled with much detail at all. Thus, our first two releases were “Impact: Steel”, a collection of found metal objects played as percussion, and “Sitar Nation”, a set of instruments from North India.

Since then, we’ve been working hard to address the needs of modern composers who require samples that are both deep, and easy-to-use. We’re proud to call thousands of musicians around the world our customers, and spend a great deal of time listening to their suggestions and requests. That’s how a number of our libraries started!
