Powerful, expressive samples for film and game composition.

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

The first True Strike focuses on orchestral percussion and was recorded in the warm environment of a concert hall, giving it its deep, cinematic sound. The library gives you lively recordings of orchestral percussion instruments such as timpani, gran casa, snares, tom toms, cymbals, tam tam, tubular bells, glockenspiel, vibraphone, celesta, various small percussion, and metal hits.

Library highlights:

Timpani”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 are available.

Gran casa and snares”True Strike is aimed at cinematic use. Therefore the gran casa and snare ensemble recordings are exceptionally powerful and deep. 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.

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 instruments”True Strike covers 5 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, including 4 woodblocks, 5 temple blocks, whip, barchimes, belltree, 4 cowbells, triangle, tambourine, castanets, and sleighbells.


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.
