Watchkeeper is Keepforest’s newest and most comprehensive library of percussion and clockwork samples that can be used to create rhythmic and mechanical sounds for all genres. Keepforest created an engine that provides you with a wide range of functions and settings for creating astonishing rhythmic patterns quickly and easily. At Just Sound Effects, we are proud to collaborate on the Watchkeeper by contributing sound recordings to Keepforest.

The main goal of the Watchkeeper is to offer users a modern set of sound design tools right out of the box, without the need to reach for third-party plugins, while keeping the interface simple and clutter-free.

Watchkeeper serves as a go-to instrument for sound designers and composers every time they want to create an intricate synth patch or trailer rhythms from scratch, working with percussion, clock, and mechanism elements, creating new sounds.
Thanks to its huge collection of sounds and rhythm patterns, it completely eliminates the need to find rhythm loops or percussive one-shots somewhere else.

Watchkeeper’s library is structured and organized clearly and intuitively, so your work can finally be fast and efficient.
Within each folder you will find a handy set of patches, ranging from the basic ones to the complex layered sounds, covering all possible genres.

Watchkeeper offers several resources to composers and sound designers:
