SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
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!

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.

VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: the 5G of sounds that come with it are at best OK, the ones I bought later (like ac gtr module) were excellent, so you need to buy the better sounds later to get great sounds. Ease of Use: the interface is a bit clumsy and not the most in, tuitive. some features easy, other hard. it's easy to load up sounds but some of them take a while to load and you never get a warning that you'll wait 2 mins to load the sound you just want to audition. the interface has horribly small fonts and there's no ability to enlarge the plugin window (which would help immensely). if they overghauled the interface and made it easier, that would make it excellent. Quality: again, ok sounds, nice reverb, a bit buggy, i always hope that loading doesn't crash. Value: it should be in the 200 dollar range. Manufacturer Support: excellent support, gave me a bunch of licenses as I moved from cptr to cptr, no problemt getting more auths. The Wow Factor: I like the sampler overall, ok sounds, nice large library, but there may be better choices

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.
