The famous True Strike series from ProjectSAM contains the original libraries preferred by film, TV and game composers who require powerful cinematic percussion samples.
True Strike 2, the second volume in the series, offers over 30 world and 28 percussion instruments with effects covering everything to lay out a percussion track with catchy sequences, horror scenes or ethnic music.
This new, re-released version of True Strike 2 has been completely redesigned. New features include a restructured instrument list, an optimized audio pool, live mic mixing, and other switchable options.
Trailer Blast – One of the highlights of True Strike 2 is the Big Bang menu. This sample bank offers you amazing hits, from natural performances like gran casa a deux to folded and processed hits. Words can’t describe much, so listen to the demo to know exactly what we mean by “shaking the earth”. If you are working on a powerful signal for the action, Big Bangs True Strike 2 is your main ingredient.
Percussion from Around the World – More than 52 individual global percussion instruments have been selected for True Strike 2, covering the following regions: Japanese / Asian, African and European / Turkish. You will find drums okedo (taiko), dundone, oudu, gomi, bracete, darabukas, bowls, bendirs, chappa from different regions, atarigane, kangagui bells, and cajon. Various idiomatic phrases are available for all major instruments. All the world’s instruments have been recorded in the studio or on stage and are available in two sets of microphones: closed and room.
Curved Metal – True Strike 2 gives you blood-curdling recordings of plate bow, porcelain, vibraphone and crotal bows. Recorded in a concert hall, you can choose between an aggressive dry sound that you can process yourself, or an ambient distant sound that immediately blends into your disturbing compositional elements.
Prepared Piano – One of the features of True Strike 2 is the prepared concert grand piano. Recorded in an ambient concert hall using 3 microphone positions, this set includes plucked snares, sustain and damped drums, as well as a range of prepared piano effects such as glissandi, clusters, brush strokes, wood strikes, punching and more other.
Dark Effects – True Strike 2 focuses on more than just acoustic sounds. The library has an impressive array of sound effects designed and processed. Choose from over two 88-note keyboards featuring otherworldly hits, soundscapes and spheres. These are unique and instantly inspiring sounds that you will start using from day one.
Cymbal – This library contains one big melodic bonus for you: 3GB sampled cymbal recorded in 3 velocities with 4 variations for each individual beat, sustain and muted notes, as well as tremolo, slaps and special effects. Available in 2 sets of microphones, this is the most realistic cymbal sample you’ll ever come across.
