We are proud to announce the next generation of IK's legendary sound and groove workstation, SampleTank 4. This update is re-designed from the ground up to be every musician's "go to" music creation workstation. SampleTank 4 is now available for pre-order, click here to buy now.

SampleTank 4 offers a massively expanded sample library (up to 8,000 sounds across 250 GB of samples) and a completely redesigned, scalable/zoomable interface. The new library features high-end recordings of all new concert pianos, keyboards, guitars, bass, drums, strings, brass, synths, vocals, percussion and more, all with articulations and round robins for the most realistic performance yet, with over 120,000 new samples added. SampleTank 4 also adds 13 new effects, for a grand total of 70 studio-quality effects. Effects like these have never before been heard in a virtual instrument – they're all derived from IK's industry-leading AmpliTube and T-RackS software.

The new sound engine offers powerful, more creative sound design. Working with multiple sounds has been made easier with a new dedicated Layer interface that enables setting up layers and split-points for up to 16 simultaneous sounds. Editing is more powerful, too. Choose from 16 modeled filters, edit envelopes, oscillators, portamento, polyphony and more. Users can edit an entire sound or access individual articulations, zones, or single samples, for the deepest level of control.

A new, cutting-edge modulation matrix allows for linking sources like envelopes, LFOs and oscillators to almost any control, for designing intricate soundscapes.

Thanks to SampleTank 4's completely redesigned GUI, the interface is now fully scalable/zoomable to re-size conveniently on any type of modern displays. Plus, a new cutting-edge sound engine offers efficient hard-disk streaming, meaning sounds load faster than ever and perform like never before. The re-designed Sound Browser lets users browse, filter and search by style, genre and mood to find inspiring sounds faster. Dig deep into each element of your sound for a level of customization and personalization like no other. Layer, mix, apreggiate, loop, add effects, and more all in the same program. Create and save all of your effects to revisit them when needed.

SampleTank 4 makes it easier than ever to hit the stage. A unique, re-designed Live mode offers fingertip-ready controls for live performance and lets users build an entire set list and create song presets. SampleTank 4 is designed to work with any standard MIDI controller, from keyboards, to pads, and more. This allows for seamless integration in both studio and live settings.

Three versions are available: SampleTank 4 SE, SampleTank 4, and SampleTank 4 MAX.

I have mixed opinions here with SampleTank 4, and especially with the Syntronik 2 instrument. The quality of the sounds and the beauty of each synthesizer panel are immense. The tonality of the analog presets is truly masterful. I have all the best VST synthesizers on the market, and the only one that comes close is Spectrasonics' Omnisphere. The analog leads of Syntronik, along with the layering capability of SampleTank, make these tools a pure diamond for the modern musician.

Regarding the installation process, organization, and intuitiveness with such a large amount of GB to install, SampleTank 2 is a real disaster, literally garbage. I have ultra-fast internet speed, but I've been installing from the Manager for hours, synthesizer by synthesizer, one by one, and the speed from IK's servers is truly awful and a lack of respect for the user who purchased their products. That said, if I were responsible for the website and sound download area, I would fire everyone tomorrow. Seriously, IK? A disaster; but the product and its quality are impressive, which compensates for the hours of waiting (?) Definitely not, if only Dev. would update what I just explained as a user, they would sell thousands more copies of this fantastic collection of vintage synthesizers. 5 stars for Syntronik's quality! 5 for the design of SampleTank 4, and 0 stars for the incapable and ineffective developers who worked on the data and sound downloading process.
