Get a behind-the-scenes look at the sound design techniques of Jason LaRocca with this free expansion pack of custom presets for film scoring and mixing inspired by his work on films and series like Dungeons & Dragons, Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power, Morbius, Godfather of Harlem, and Prey for the Devil.
