Your Pro Tools-ready Drum Solution!

Note: This is a specially priced update to Avid Strike 1.5 for current owners of Strike. Please call your Sales Engineer for details.

Get fully produced drum tracks in an instant! With Avid's Strike under your control, you can nail any kind of drum performance imaginable — from relaxed jazzy grooves to in-your-face rock slams to splashy pop jams. Think of Strike as the opposite of your standard drum-looping tool. Instead, it's like having a skilled drummer in an unbelievable room, with a world-class kit that's miked to perfection — and all under your control. You've got the power to tailor Strike's performance, so you can adjust the intensity, the complexity, and the dynamics of the grooves — and more. It's never been so easy to get drum tracks that fit the mood of every song you come across. If you've got Pro Tools, you've just got to have Strike!

Strike comes loaded with five high-resolution drum kits, each featuring up to 12 instruments with up to 300 individual samples per instrument, for an incredible range of detail. Whether you compose soundtracks or pop tunes, or just need a drummer to jam along with while you play your guitar, Strike delivers totally human results, with over 1,500 editable preset patterns in popular music styles. Strike lets you create your own custom patterns by using the onboard Style Editor, and it can also function as a drum module in Pro Tools software.

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 — for example, room ambience and leakage — then take advantage of a dedicated 3-band EQ and two insert effects per channel. Strike's onboard effects range from dynamics and limiting to reverb and delay, and to such specialized tools as bit crusher and filter. The onboard mixer lets you easily adjust the overall level and panning for each drum, as well as route individual sounds to separate mixer channels in Pro Tools software.

When you want realistic drum tracks — whenever, wherever — launch into Strike, and you've got them!
