    Yes thanks!

    Seriously Maarten, why do you keep giving away free samples? At this rate you're gonna give the whole library! I was sold after just the FIRST freebie. Little things like the grand casa/cymbal crash combination and dampened gong hits are fantastic. The one sustained cymbal crash you also provided is THE cymbal crash sound I've been looking for - and I have 10+ crash cymbals to choose from.

    Really looking forward to True Strike~

    Great stuff! Judging from the few samples I've heard of it, that timpani is easily the best sampled timpani I've ever heard - it actually has some air to it, it's not just dead thuds like many libraries have.

    I'm already setting aside the money for this.

    The SAM team rocks!!! The freebies so far have been awesome!
    Kinda have to agree with A_Sapp though...

    Unfortunately the site is down for me right now, but I am sure that will be fixed soon...
    Works now....
