IK announces SampleTank 4 - Available for pre-order

IK Multimedia has announced the next generation of the 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.

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. IK say "Effects like these have never before been heard in a virtual instrument – they're all derived from thre 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 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 display. Plus, a new 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 sounds faster. 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 easy 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 now for preorder: SampleTank 4 SE, SampleTank 4, and SampleTank 4 MAX.

SampleTank 4 will ship early 2019. Through the end of the year, IK is offering a special pre-order discount:
