  • Strike 2.0 makes it easy to create, control, and produce professional drum performances with uncanny realism. Using proprietary technology, Strike 2.0 goes beyond the boundaries of conventional MIDI and sampling when it comes to computer-based playing, arranging, and mixing of drums. Each instrument was recorded with up to three close, two overhead, and two room microphones. Strike 2.0 also provides a full mixing console, complete with built-in effects. Strike 2.0 puts you in the producer’s chair, providing quick and easy-to-use global controls, as well as access to all the nuanced details that influence a drum track and make it come alive. Use Strike 2.0 to play a perfect seamless crescendo, switch the mix from ballad to crushed punk, or just tweak the tuning of the snare drum. Updated to the 32-bit and 64-bit AAX formats, Strike 2.0 is fully compatible with Avid Pro Tools 10 & 11.

    Meet Your New Drummer

    With Strike 2.0, getting the groove you want is as simple as choosing one of the high-definition kits and telling the “virtual” drummer how to play: Adjust the playing intensity, complexity, timing, groove, dynamics, and much more — all in real time. Use the automation features in Pro Tools 11 to perfect all of your moves and get the perfect drum performance. Connect a MIDI controller to tweak your performance on the fly using knobs, sliders, and drum pads.

    Unbelievable Human Feel

    Strike 2.0’s proprietary real-time performance engine eliminates the mechanized artifacts of typical sample-playback devices to deliver human results with unparalleled realism. Increase the playing intensity and you’ll get a smooth dynamic response in the drum tone instead of audible velocity switches. Change up the feel or complexity and get instant, natural-sounding results. With Strike 2.0, you can produce professional drum tracks that are simply not possible using conventional sampling technology.

    Comprehensive Grooves

    Strike 2.0 comes loaded with 19 customizable drum kits all recording at the world renown Blackbird Studios in Nashville. Whether you compose soundtracks, pop tunes, or just need a drummer to jam along with on your guitar, Strike 2.0 delivers totally human results with thousands of editable preset patterns in popular music styles. Strike 2.0 also lets you create your own custom patterns with the onboard Style Editor, or by functioning as a drum module in Pro Tools.

    Mix It Up

    To help you get the perfect drum sound, Strike 2.0 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 Pro Tools.

    • Easily produce professional, highly realistic drum performances
    • Real-time control of the virtual drummer’s performance
    • Control intensity, complexity, timing, groove, dynamics, and much more
    • Gradually adjust dynamics without the typical machine gun effect
