The library
With True Strike 2, ProjectSAM covers new percussion ground. Aimed at film, tv and game music, 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, traileresque 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.

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. Please note that the "Hear a Sample" MP3 above was performed using single hit samples only. No loops or phrases were used!

Big 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 à 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.

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 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.

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 will encounter.

The recordings
The instruments in True Strike 2 are categorized into to two settings: Studio, offering you a Close and Room microphone set, and Concert Hall, offering you a Close and Stage microphone set.
- Close (bright and direct)
- Room/Stage (studio/concert hall)
