Strike 2

Strike2Monitor

Ultimate virtual drummer instrument

Strike is a dynamic drum and arranger instrument that features a world-class sample library and a hyper-realistic performance engine. Strike puts you in the producer’s chair, enabling you to create, control, and produce professional drum tracks with uncanny human realism. With its proprietary technology, Strike surpasses conventional MIDI programming and drumming sampling when it comes to computer-based playing, arranging, and mixing of drums.

Use Strike to play a seamless crescendo, switch drum kits from ballad to crushed punk, or tweak the tuning of the snare drum. Each instrument was recorded with up to three close, two overhead, and two room microphones. Strike also provides a full mixing console, complete with built-in effects.

To help you get the perfect drum sound, Strike includes a built-in mixing console for full control over every aspect of the kit. Change virtual microphone settings, such as room ambience and leakage, then take advantage of dedicated 3-band EQ and two insert effects per channel. The onboard effects range from dynamics and limiting to reverb and delay, plus specialized tools such as bit crusher and filter. The onboard mixer lets you easily adjust the overall level and panning for each drum, and route individual sounds to separate mixer channels in your DAW.
