ProjectSAM True Strike 1
Library for Kontakt Player
ProjectSAM’s acclaimed True Strike series holds the original percussion libraries of choice for film, tv and game composers requiring cinematic, powerful 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 re-released version of True Strike has been completely re-designed for the Kontakt format and comes with Native Instruments Kontakt Player. New features include a re-structured instrument list, a streamlined audio pool, real-time microphone mixing other switchable 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.
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 homeworld. 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, bar chimes, bell tree, 4 cowbells, triangle, tambourine, castanets, and sleigh bells.
