ProjectSAM – True Strike 1 v1.1 (KONTAKT)

The famous True Strike series from ProjectSAM contains the original percussion libraries preferred by film, TV and game composers who require powerful cinematic percussion samples.

True Strike, the first volume in the series, focuses on orchestral percussion. True Strike offers 51 orchestral percussion instruments with multiple mic positions in a concert hall. This is the only orchestral percussion library you will ever need.

This re-released version of True Strike has been completely re-designed for the Kontakt format and comes with Native Instruments Kontakt Player. New features include a re-structured instrument list, a streamlined audio pool, real-time microphone other mixing switchable options.


The timpani is one of the biggest instrument banks found in True Strike. You will find an extensive list of playing techniques: up to 6 dynamics, sustained and dampened notes, tremolo, tremolo crescendo in three lengths, crescendo-decrescendo and hard mallet fortissimo. Suspenseful special effects such as pedal bends and cymbal / bowl on timpani.

Orchestral drums

True Strike is aimed at cinematic use. Therefore 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 homeworld. The library also includes single snare drum (snares on and off), military drum and field drum samples.

Ensemble hits

One of the most popular patches in True Strike is the Ensemble Hits bank. These are ensemble recordings of gran casa and low-tuned timpani playing together. Big and bad.
Melodic percussion
True Strike covers five melodic percussion instruments: glockenspiel, marimba, vibraphone, tubular bells and celesta. This last, beautiful instrument is the very first sampled in a concert hall and offered in 3 microphone positions.

Small percussion

True Strike offers an extensive set of small percussion instruments, among which 4 woodblocks, 5 temple blocks, whip, bar chimes, bell tree, 4 cowbells, triangle, tambourine, castanets and sleigh bells.
