Product Description

SampleTank is the ultimate sample workstation. With an exclusive combination of features and sounds, SampleTank stands apart from any other sample-based virtual instrument, as one of the most powerful and easy-to-use solutions for making fully produced songs out of the box. SampleTank 2.5 XL comes with 2 DVDs and over 1,800 sounds (for over 6.5 GB of samples) plus an extra bonus sound disk.

The widest variety of sounds in all instrument categories

You're one click away from tons of Acoustic Grand Pianos, Electric Pianos, Strings, Brass, Winds, Vocals, Orchestral sounds, Organs, Percussion, Drums, Basses, Guitars, Synths, Loops, Ethnic samples and more. Plus now SampleTank has the ability to read all "Powered by SampleTank" instruments' sounds, including Miroslav Philharmonik, Sonik Synth and the upcoming SampleMoog, Studiophonik and SampleTron. This way you can work much faster and more creatively by having access to thousands of high-quality sounds from a single interface. If this is not enough, you can also import your own WAV, AIFF, AKAI, SDII and Samplecell files for a truly unlimited world of sounds.

Unique sound manipulation with multi-samples and loops

SampleTank is the only sample workstation that sports 3 different types of sample engines: traditional resampling, Stretch(tm), and PS/TS (pitch-shift/time-stretch). The unique Stretch engine will deliver amazing realism and expression over multi-sampled instruments. Your performances will come to life with true glide, bending, full control over staccato and vibrato -- with an incredibly rich, vibrant, and natural sound quality (no more "chipmunk" effect). When working with loops, the PS/TS engine will allow you to synchronize loops with one click, or control its tempo and pitch independently for the ultimate beat machine.

The most powerful multi-effects built in a virtual instrument

Every sound in SampleTank is programmed with fully editable built-in effects, so drums load up with reverb and compression, guitars with amp-simulation, electric organs with rotary speaker and so on. With 5 insert effects per parts and the 5 send and 5 master effects you can have up to 90 effects available in this production powerhouse. These effects can be selected within the 33 high-quality effects of SampleTank that offer also algorithms from IK's award winning T-RackS, Classik Studio Reverb and AmpliTube! The top quality IK modeling effects are immediately available to you, just by loading the SampleTank sounds.

So easy to use, you do not need to read the manual

With SampleTank, you're up and going within seconds. More than 50 sampler controls are accessible from an easy-to-use and highly accessible single interface. That's why you can spend more time focusing on your music instead of studying complex manuals written for engineers and not musicians. That's also why you'll find yourself loading up SampleTank as your "go-to" instrument every time you want to let your creativity flow.

Efficient and fast loading

SampleTank is so efficient that it can be easily installed and can run from even a modestly priced laptop. Sounds can load up so fast that its performance is comparable hardware synths and samplers. That is why more and more musicians use SampleTank for live performances. Try to do this with other complicated and heavy-load sample-based virtual instruments, and you can immediately see the difference!

These are some of the reasons why thousands of top artists and musicians (including Grammy-winning names like Eminem, Genesis, Asia, Nickelback, Aereosmith, Shakira, Black Eyed Peas, Outkast, Herbie Hancock, Nine Inch Nails, Laura Pausini just to name a few) have chosen SampleTank in scores of records and soundtracks worldwide.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (20 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Great all around program for pro or newbie producers!"
Sound: Sampletank probably has the best sounds in any software sampler ever! The strings are amzing, and the acoustic piano is just what I've been looking for in a softsynth! If you use Sampletank along with Cubase SX and a nice MIDI controller, you'll find Triton's become obsolete! This setup kills a Triton any day! Feature: The STRETCH feature is a sample producer's dream come true! The effects are nice too! I like the reverb and delay that Sampletank provides... Quality: Haven't had a bug yet! Value: This product was everything I asked for and more, but still 380 dollars is quite expensive! Manufacturer Support: Haven't had request support yet! The Wow Factor: The Red Setup looks damn sexy!:) Overall: Everything you could ask from a softsynth and more! The sounds are top notch, and it does everything it's supposed to!
Style of Music: Hip Hop, RnB, Reggaeton, Reggae, Soul, Jazz, and some Rock

"Love it! It's stretch technology is very musical!!! And, so simple to use."
Sound: Great sounds. Extremely easy to use. Still having a problem with importing wavs. Feature: Their stretch feature will be so useful. (once I get it to work with my own wav files) It has endless musical possibilities. Quality: One feature doesn't work. Importing wavs. Value: You can't find this many good sounds for this price any where right now. Manufacturer Support: I am in the middle of a tech support issue now. I need the program to import my wav files, like it says on the box, but it doesn't do it correctly. The Wow Factor: I love that fact that their website has lots of demos showing off its cool features. Stuff like this gets missed when you are just stairing at a box in a music store. Overall: I will be using this product for while. I thas a nice core of great samples that will be usefull for years to come.
Style of Music: Any style

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
