True Strike 2 ProjectSAM covers new percussion ground. This library
covers all to build your percussive action cue, ground-shaking chase
sequence, suspenseful horror scene or out-of-this-world fantasy track.
Japanese, African and Turkish drums, trailer-esque Big Bangs, bowed
cymbals, prepared piano, new tam tam and gran casa effects, cajon, udu,
lots of rhythmic phrases and a huge collection of bells and shakers.
True Strike 2 also offers you a wide variety of various small
percussion. In all, True Strike 2 delivers you the powerful drums and
special effects needed to build any percussive score.
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, so listen to the demos to know exactly what we mean
by "ground-shaking". If you are working on a powerful action cue, True
Strike 2's Big Bangs are your main ingredient.
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. Please note that the "Hear a Sample"
MP3 above was performed using single hit samples only. No loops or
phrases were used!
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 agressive, direct sound that you can process yourself, or an
ambient, distant sound that will fit into your suspense cue right away.
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.
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.
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
