IK Multimedia has announced that the long-anticipated SampleTank 3 is finally to be released July 2014 featuring 33 GB of sounds, over 4,000 instruments, over 2,000 MIDI files and 2,500 loops.

SampleTank 3 has been rebuilt from the ground up: it has a completely new sound set, fully redesigned easy-to-use interface, new sounds with true-to-life "round robin" and multiple articulations, a new patterns player with MIDI patterns, new effects derived from AmpliTube and T-RackS, a new loop management feature, new filters, a new Live mode and much more.

New Sounds

At the core of SampleTank 3 there are now over 33 GB of professionally recorded and hand-crafted samples. There are over 4,000 instruments in 22 instrument categories, which means "you'll have access to every acoustic, electric and electronic sound you'll ever need". SampleTank 3 also includes over 2,500 drum, percussion and complete groove loops, and over 2,000 MIDI patterns. From Jazz to Rock, from Pop to Funky, from EDM to Hip-Hop, from Dubstep to House.

New Interface

SampleTank 3 retains the ease of use and quick workflow of its previous versions with its new 3 main environments: Play, Mix and Edit. Featuring an elegant and uncluttered design, it lets you start making music in minutes. When you need to dig into its powerful new features, all the controls you need will be there, just one click away.

New Sound Engine

SampleTank 3 sports a brand-new, CPU-efficient software engine with dozens of new features. Give your sounds a live-played organic depth with "round-robin" and multiple articulations, shape your tone with 10 types of filters — including emulations of some of the most iconic analog filters of all time — and tweak your samples using its 3 unique sampling engines (including the formant preserving STRETCH and pitch-shift/time-stretch engines). Plus for quick sound editing, 8 easy-to-use pre-programmed macro functions can be pulled up at any moment. The new Live feature lets you organize your sounds by setlist and song with smart sound loading for instant recall while you are on stage performing.

New MIDI Engine

The new SampleTank 3 built-in MIDI engine – combined with the thousands of included MIDI patterns – lets you quickly build rhythmic grooves and tracks directly from your workstation and easily sync them with your DAW. You can now load up to 128 MIDI patterns for each of the 16 parts, with extensive control over intensity, transposition and quantization — play them all from your keyboard or effortlessly drag them to your DAW and keep working from there. Plus you can mix and match patterns and loops and sync them together seamlessly to build your groove.

New Effects

The new internal multi-effects selection now contains 55 high-quality effects with 22 brand-new effects derived from the analog-modeled algorithms and convolution technology found in AmpliTube and T-RackS plus brand new effects developed just for SampleTank 3. There is also a new 16 channel mixer-like interface with 5 insert effect slots per part, 4 stereo FX returns and a Master Channel — each with 5 effect slots. Up to 30 effects can be applied to a single SampleTank sound for a spectrum of creative sound design possibilities.
