Native introduces True Strike Tension
Native Instruments today introduced True Strike Tension, a new Kore Soundpack with distinctive percussion sounds that are specifically designed to add mystery and tension to cinematic film scores and similar musical styles. Created in collaboration with renowned sound design company ProjectSAM, the sound material in True Strike Tension benefits from the sound shaping and browsing features in Kore 2 and the free Kore Player.
True Strike Tension is built on unique sample material that has been selected from ProjectSAM's acclaimed "True Strike 2" library. It draws upon various charismatic percussion instruments from Africa, Japan and the Middle East, including the Kenkeni, Darabuka, Bendir, Okedo-Daiko and others. "All sounds in True Strike Tension are designed to add suspense, tension and emphasis to any kind of dramatic music, with a special focus on Hollywood-style film scoring", says Native.
The sound shaping and preset morphing features in Kore 2 and Kore Player allow producers to adjust and animate all sounds in True Strike Tension, and make them better fit the dramatic requirements of any given scene. The included metadata also makes True Strike Tension integrate seamlessly with any individual collection of Kore Soundpacks and other Kore-based sounds.
True Strike Tension is available for download purchase in the NI Online Shop for a suggested retail price of $79 / 69 EUR.
