Library Highlights



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 lenghts, crescendo-decrescendo and hard mallet fortissimo. Suspenseful special effects such as pedal bends and cymbal/bowl on timpani.


Gran casa & snares

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 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 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, barchimes, belltree, 4 cowbells, triangle, tambourine, castanets and sleighbells.
