ProjectSAM's acclaimed True Strike series holds the percussion libraries of choice for film and game composers wanting big, powerful, and cinematic percussion samples.

With True Strike 2 ProjectSAM covers new percussion ground. This library covers it all, so you can build your percussive action cue, ground-shaking chase sequence, suspenseful horror scene, or out-of-this-world fantasy track. This collection features 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.

Library highlights:

Trailer Bangs”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. If you are working on a powerful action cue, True Strike 2's Big Bangs are your main ingredient.

World Percussion”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.

Bowed metal”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 agressive, direct sound that you can process yourself or an ambient, distant sound that will fit into your suspense cue right away.

Prepared piano”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.

Dystopian effects”True Strike 2 doesn't just 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.

Cimbalom”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.


The library data ships on 2 DVDs and comes with a Multi-Format Installer that will guide you through the installation process, copy the required files to your system, and conveniently re-link programs and audio data for you. Through the Installer it is also possible to apply programming updates that are available from the ProjectSAM website.
