With powerful cinematic percussion samples!

The True Strike 1 focuses on orchestral percussion and was recorded in the warm environment of a concert hall, which gives it its deep, cinematic sound. The sample 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 instruments and metal hits.

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


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.

Gran casa & snares

True Strike 1 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 sample collection 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 1 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 1 offers extensive samples of small percussion instruments, among which 4 woodblocks, 5 temple blocks, whip, barchimes, belltree, 4 cowbells, triangle, tambourine, castanets and sleighbells.
