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

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. 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.

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!

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 aggressive, 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

The ProjectSAM True Strike 2 collaction 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 sample 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.

Great Cinematic Samples

Comments about ProjectSAM True Strike 2 Cinematic World and Effects Percussion Library:

I'm an independent composer and every penny counts when it comes to buying gear. But what's included in the Big Bangs section of this is worth the price of admission alone! Project SAM did a great job recording and compiling many many different instruments and samples here! One complaint I have is that they didn't set up any volume presets or kits of drums for certain types of work. All the samples loaded into EXS with volume at 0, so it does take some time setting up. But once all the initial work is done, you're in for making the earth shake! Buy it, it's worth the price alone for the Big Bang set.
