ProjectSAM True Strike Volume 1 & 2
This explosive pack of sound combines both versions of ProjectSAM’ acclaimed TRUE STRIKE orchestral percussion instruments, and is the must have collection for an film, TV, game composer liking for powerful, cinematic percussion samples.
TRUE STRIKE, the first volume in the series, focuses on orchestral percussion. Offering 51 orchestral percussion instruments in multiple concert hall mic positions, TRUE STRIKE is the only orchestral percussion library you will ever need.
This new, re-released version of TRUE STRIKE has been completely re-designed for the Kontakt format and comes with Native Instruments Kontakt Player 3.5. New features include a re-structured instrument list, a streamlined audio pool and a custom interface with on-screen ADSR control, instrument information and other options.
The timpani is one of the biggest instrument banks found in True Strike. You will find an extensive list of playing techniques: up to 6 dynamics, sustained and dampened notes, tremolo, tremolo crescendo in three lengths, crescendo-decrescendo, and hard mallet fortissimo. Suspenseful special effects such as pedal bends and cymbal/bowl on timpani.
Gran casa & snares
True Strike is aimed at cinematic use. Therefore the gran casa and snare ensemble are the most powerful and deep recordings you will find. Load up the stage, or far microphone set, and scare those aliens back to their home world. The library also includes single snare drum (snares on and off), military drum and field drum samples.
One of the most popular patches in True Strike is the Ensemble Hits bank. These are ensemble recordings of gran casa and low-tuned timpani playing together. Big and bad.
True Strike covers five melodic percussion instruments: glockenspiel, marimba, vibraphone, tubular bells and celesta. This last, beautiful instrument is the very first sampled in a concert hall and offered in 3 microphone positions.
True Strike offers an extensive set of small percussion instruments, among which 4 woodblocks, 5 temple blocks, whip, barchimes, belltree, 4 cowbells, triangle, tambourine, castanets and sleighbells.
TRUE STRIKE 2
TRUE STRIKE 2, the second volume in the series, offers over 30 world and 28 effects percussion instruments covering everything to lay down the percussion track for your next chase sequence, horror scene or ethnic flavored score.
This new, re-released version of TRUE STRIKE 2 has been completely re-designed for the Kontakt format and comes with Native Instruments Kontakt Player 3.5. New features include a re-structured instrument list, a streamlined audio pool and a custom interface with on-screen ADSR control, instrument information and other options.
One of the highlights in True Strike 2 is the Big Bang Menu. This sample bank offers you ground-shaking hits, both natural performances, such as gran casa a deux, as well as stacked and processed hits. Words can only describe so much, but just listening to these sounds you hear just how “ground-shaking” they truly are. If you are working on a powerful action cue, True Strike 2’s Big Bangs are your main ingredient.
For True Strike 2, over 52 individual world percussion instruments have been sampled, covering the following regions: Japanese/Asian, African and European/Turkish. You will find okedo (taiko) drums, doundoun, udu, gomee, brekete, darabukas, bowls, bendirs, chappa from various regions, atarigane, kangagui bells and cajon. For all main instruments various idiomatic phrases are available. All world instruments have been recorded in studio or stage environments and are available in two microphone sets: close and room.
True Strike 2 gives you bone-chilling recordings of bowed cymbal, china, vibraphone and crotales. Recorded in a concert hall, you get to choose between an aggressive, direct sound that you can process yourself, or an ambient, distant sound that will fit into your suspense cue right away.
One of True Strike 2’s special features is the prepared concert grand piano. Recorded in an ambient concert hall using 3 mic positions, this set includes plucked snares, both sustained and dampened struck snares and a barrage of prepared piano effects such as glissandi, clusters, brush hits, wooden hits, hand-struck hits and much more.
True Strike 2 does not only focus on acoustic sounds. The library comes with an impressive set of sound-designed and processed effects. Over two 88-note keyboards worth of otherworldly hits, scapes and spheres are at your disposal. These are unique and instantly inspiring sounds that you will start using from day one.
This library holds one big melodic bonus for you: a fully sampled, 3 GB cimbalom recorded in 3 velocities with 4 alternates for every single stroke, sustained and dampened notes as well as tremolo, slap and special effects. Available in 2 microphone sets, this is the most realistic cimbalom sample you have encountered yet.
