FluidStrike - All Instruments

Fluid Strike is an instrument designed to create richly layered melodic percussive patterns with ease.

The library places samples from 30 acoustic tuned percussion instruments with 120 synth sounds into the “Triple Play” engine: a custom designed interface that allows users to independently arpeggiate, effect and shape three instruments at one time.

Wood, steel, stone, bamboo, glass, gourds and synths combine into 200 patches that cover Natural, Hybrid, Pulse, Pad, Solo, Sequenced and Ambient categories.

With a slew of effects, sound shaping tools and autoplay rhythmic and melodic features at your fingertips, Fluid Strike allows tuned percussion to sound completely unique.


Features and Specifications

  • 30 tuned percussive instruments
  • 120 custom made synth sets
  • Where possible, each instrument has been recorded using a variety of sticks, mallets, fingers, brushes and bows, bringing the tuned percussion sample set count to 63.
  • Most instruments feature many velocity layers and triple round robin cycling for natural variation.
  • To improve playability all instruments have been stretched across the entire keyboard range.
  • Fluid Strike contains 200 patches split into seven categories:
    Triple Play Arps - Natural (36)
    Triple Play Arps - Hybrid (36)
    Rhythmic Pulses w Mod Wheel (24)
    Solo (24)
    Pads (24)
    Ambient (24)
    Sequences (24)
  • 71 custom reverb impulse responses
  • 12 custom amp cabinet impulse responses
  • 64 custom fx unit presets
  • Triple Play rhythm grids can modify up to 15 parameters simultaneously (arp, pitch, filter cutoff, volume and pan x 3)
  • The Triple Play engine supports up to 22 user-selected Kontakt effects at once, plus an additional three filters, three send delays and three send reverbs, for a total of 31 (!) simultaneous effects.

“…extremely convenient for generating a base of melody, harmony and rhythm that is alive and organic… Superb!” KR Home-Studio Magazine

“…nothing on the market today as complete a collection with this functionality, especially at this price point. I really think that Fluid Strike is a game changer.”  Sample Library Review

“…when it comes to making it possible for many hours of creative music making, Fluid Harmonics / Strike are unique. They’re in an elite school.”  Score: 9 out of 10 – Studio.se

Total content size is approximately 5 GB pre-compression.  Final library size is approximately 3 GB.
Fluid Strike runs in Kontakt or the free Kontakt Player 5.6.8 or higher (requires a minimum of Windows 7 or Mac OS 10.10).
Because Fluid Strike and the Triple Play engine utilize an extensive set of features (multiplied by three) we recommend that users have an up-to-date and powerful computer/CPU for the best experience.

Hohe CPU Last. Umständliche Bedienung (Naja halt NI Chaos). Installation nicht Zeitgemäß. Plug and Play gibt es schon seit 1982. Keine richtige Einbindung in NI Kontakt. Sounds ok. Kaum brauchbar. Volle Fehlinvestition für mich! Absolut enttäuscht.
