Native Instruments has introduced True Strike Tension, a new Kore
Soundpack with percussion sounds that are specifically designed to
add mystery and tension to cinematic film scores and similar musical

Created in collaboration with renowned sound design company,
ProjectSAM, the production-ready sound material in True Strike
Tension offers the sound shaping and browsing features in Kore 22 and
the free Kore Player. True Strike Tension is built on studio-quality
sample material that has been selected from ProjectSAM’s “True Strike
2” library.

It draws upon various percussion instruments from Africa, Japan and
the Middle East, including the Kenkeni, Darabuka, Bendir, Okedo-Daiko
and others. 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 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 US$79. Additional
information on True Strike Tension including audio demos is available
