SAM True Strike 1, Professional Orchestral Percussion Library

Today I purchased the Project SAM "True Strike Professional Edition" Orchestral Percussion Library, which should beef up the power and realism of my orchestral percussion scores. I'm even considering producing a couple of percussion-only dark ambient film soundtrack pieces with them. I'll keep you posted...

Thanks for the tip! I have worked a little bit before with Peter Siedlaczek "Advanced Orchestra" but I'm looking for something new. I've also heard the East West Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra ( ) is good?

The EW/QL Symphonic Orchestra is an awesome collection. I just bought the Gold edition which works pretty good on a single machine. The platinum edition is a *very* demanding package (over 60GB to install) and they suggest a dedicated machine for each of the four modules for realtime playback. The platinum edition can't be beat in terms of quality (24 bit samples and 3 microphone positions for each instrument/section). I'm quite happy with the Gold edition. Most of the instruments have velocity sensitivity, cross-fades for creating realistic crescendos, and many articulations to choose from.

And the gold has the tails where the sliver does not. Makes a big difference.
