Strike 2 is way inderrated in the land of Drum Libraries

As a user of several other drum vst plugins like BFD3, Superior Drummer 2/EZdrummer2, SSD4, Groove Agent 4 i am suprised at how good Strike 2 is. I quess the fact it was a protools only plugin once didn't make me aware of it sooner. Especially with a comparable concept with Groove Agent. but while groove agent 4 has only 3 acoustic kits they also not sound that great to be honest.. Not so with Strike 2. I think i never had a Drummer that offers such a great versatile Library with everything from jazz including great brushes, folk, pop, rock, metal wich also sounds great out of the box.
Unlike others there is simply no need for expansion packs.
Couldn't you have made this plugin available for everyone just sooner? :)).

  • I don't even entertain conversations with the "cognoscenti" about it anymore. I have to laugh. For years I've been watching the other "biggies" introduce features that Strike already had or watched Strike features end up on their community wish lists. I never needed to by one manufacturer's proprietary samples, sequences, kits, or kit pieces for Strike because Strike allows you to import, map, and tweak like a pro needs to. Don't get me wrong. I use whatever I need to but I keep coming back to Strike. Still my go-to for quickly creating odd-meter beats, new kits, and track variations. Using Strike in tandem with Transfuser just gets things wild in no time at all. Under-rated? Beats me (pun intended). The only things I can figure that hinder Strike's wider notoriety is that it doesn't have a stand-alone feature and, because of its wide approach to accepting soundfile formats and samples, you're not frequently bombarded with advertisements for a given manufacturer's proprietary kit/sample/sequence packs. I was ecstatic when it went VST.
