In 2001, composer Maarten Spruijt, songwriter Vincent Beijer and composer-arranger Marco Deegenaars teamed up to found sample library development company ProjectSAM .
The main keyword to describe the work of ProjectSAM is: cinematic. All our libraries are specifically created for film, tv and game composers. Being composers in these industries ourselves, we know how we want our mixes to sound and come across aspects still missing in the sample world. The "ProjectSAM sound" is best described as deep and warm. Because we offer each library in multiple microphone sets, the samples fit into any mix easily. A second important aspect of ProjectSAM's philosophy is the focus on unique articulations and effects. In each of our libraries we include playing techniques, instrument combos and cinematic effects that you won't find anywhere else.
ProjectSAM is where custom samples and commercial libraries meet.
Nowadays, ProjectSAM has become one of the most respected orchestral sample development companies. ProjectSAM has developed the following sample libraries specially aimed at film, tv and games composers: Lumina, Orchestral Essentials, Symphobia 2, Symphobia, True Strike, True Strike 2 and Orchestral Brass Classic. All libraries are sold internationally through ProjectSAM's online shop and by a number of world-wide distributors in the US, Europe, Japan and India.
ProjectSAM's work is being used world-wide by the industry's leading composers.
