A Sound For Every Song, Literally

What makes SampleTank 3 so powerful is its extraordinarily large sound library. SampleTank 3 now comes with over 33 gigabytes of professionally recorded instruments — that’s over 4,000 instruments in 21 instrument categories — far more than most other music workstations out-of-the-box. Plus, SampleTank 3 includes over 2,500 drum, percussion and full groove construction kit loops and over 2,000 MIDI patterns for its brand new MIDI player section.

These sounds are far from ordinary: SampleTank 3's library has been carefully assembled and recorded by IK's experienced recording engineers with high-quality instruments played by professional musicians in some of the world's finest studios. Each instrument has been chosen and recorded to produce the rich depth and vivid realism of live playing. With SampleTank 3, you'll swear a musician is in the room with you — more importantly, though, is that SampleTank 3's powerful editing and effects features let you control every aspect of these sounds, which allows for an unparalleled creative sonic experience.

Though SampleTank 3 features a massive quantity of quality content — with a variety that far surpasses similar workstations — its real forte is the quality of its sounds, which accurately replicate all the qualities of your favorite instruments. Its pianos, drums, basses, guitars, synthesizers, brass, strings, vocals and other more exotic sounds shine brightly in any mix with little adjustment. And all this is available in an easy-to-use workstation that has a workflow that lets you get right into doing what you do best: making great sounding music.

That SampleTank 3 is "Made in Italy" ought to give you an idea of the dedicated craftsmanship and style at the heart of the program. It’s an extensive selection of samples that have been hand-crafted, one-by-one, after countless hours of passionate studio work by IK's master sound engineers — it's more than just a collection of sounds, it's an all-in-one solution and toolbox that can satisfy the needs of even the most demanding of music producers.

An Expanding Universe Of Sound

Another thing that makes SampleTank 3 so powerful is that its massive library of sounds, instruments, patterns, loops and grooves can be customized to suit your exact needs. In addition to its 33GB, you can also choose from a growing selection of exciting and inspiring SampleTank 3 instruments collections. With new additions every month, these instruments are custom tailored for the ultimate sound and groove workstation to give you the tools you need to create any style of music from acoustic to electronic and beyond.

A-La-Carte Sounds

Though this whole new world of expansion content can be purchased from the IK online store, it can also be easily accessed from within SampleTank 3 itself. This is due to SampleTank 3's integration with the IK Custom Shop. First launched in 2011 for AmpliTube (and later T-RackS), and with an active community of over 1,000,000 registered users, the Custom Shop offers a seamless way to browse, preview, purchase and download new instruments collections, all without having to leave the SampleTank 3 interface. It sports an easy-to-use and visually rich interface and comprehensive audio demos for each instrument that both combine to help you find the exact sound you need, right when you need it.

SampleTank’s Secret Weapon: The Engine

SampleTank has long been considered the undisputed king when it comes to resampling. Its 3 engines go beyond traditional resampling (which you can find in any sampler). It offers advanced pitch-shifting/time-stretching for loops and grooves. And its unique formant preserving STRETCH™ engine provides an unparalleled level of realism when dealing with vocals, woodwinds, brass and other organic sounds. When used together these features allow for a virtually unlimited assortment of creative sample effect combinations.

Completely retooled and remade, SampleTank 3's new software engine has been greatly enhanced while maintaining its traditional quick sample load times and light CPU usage.

Experience enhanced playability with SampleTank 3's new "round robin" sample switching — it's there to lend an organic "live" feeling to your playing by cycling through different samples of the same instrument. Coupled with SampleTank 3's new multiple articulations — triggerable via key switch, modulation wheel or velocity — this provides maximum realism on highly expressive instruments like guitars, woodwinds, percussion, brass, and more. When used correctly these new features can make SampleTank 3's sound indistinguishable from the real thing.

SampleTank 3 now also includes 16 types of filter effects, many of which are spot-on emulations of some of the most historically significant analog ladder and phaser filters.

SampleTank 3 also enhances your editing workflow by centralizing all control in one easy to use interface. Whatever your creative audio needs may be, SampleTank 3 delivers with stunning precision, accuracy and ease.
