Cinematic Audio

ProjectSAM True Strike 1 is a professional piece of audio software featuring high end sounds and samples. The timpani is one of the biggest instrument banks found in True Strike featuring an extensive list of playing techniques: up to 6 dynamics, sustained and dampened notes, tremolo, tremolo crescendo in three lenghts, crescendo-decrescendo and hard mallet fortissimo. True Strike is aimed at cinematic use, meaning 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.

Melodic Instruments and Small Percussion

True Strike covers five melodic percussion instruments: glockenspiel, marimba, vibraphone, tubular bells and celesta. True Strike also 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.

Kontakt Player

Provided with True Strike 1 is Version 3.5 of the Native Instruments Kontakt Player sampler which offers you on-screen ADSR control, EQ and Delay controls and instrument/articulation information.
