IK Multimedia has updated SampleTank to version 3.3.
The new version is designed to turn SampleTank 3 into a great tool for beat and groove makers via its new plug-and-play compatibility with iRig Pads, IK's portable MIDI groove controller. Its new "Pad" interface is designed to let musicians organize SampleTank 3's 16 parts into a new matrix view for use with iRig Pads, or any other 4x4 pad controller. In addition, the new version includes broader MIDI support and streamlined loop management.
Also included is The Grid, IK's first add-on sound collection for SampleTank 3. Created with iRig Pads in mind, it is designed to allow beatmakers and electronic music producers to get creative with 50 instruments and 50 patterns in two categories: DRUMS and LOOPS & HITS. Both contain one-shots, loops and other tools designed to help producers, performers and other musicians create beats in every genre from EDM to dubstep, house to techno, hip-hop to electro and beyond.
