The new SampleTank 4 Custom Shop is a free download that offers an introduction to SampleTank 4, with more than 4 GB of virtual instrument sounds plus editing and effects, with all features of the full software. Combining IK's sound engine with dozens of all-new Instruments and hundreds of MIDI loops, SampleTank 4 CS allows the creation of full tracks in a single plug-in, with the ability to expand as needed with additional sound libraries.

  • 50 virtual instruments, with over 4 GB of sound content.
  • Comprehensive library; expandable with additional libraries.
  • 200 MIDI grooves to build tracks quickly.
  • Full sound engine with no features restricted.
  • Works as a plug-in or as stand-alone software.

Like all versions of SampleTank 4, it also offers a re-designed sound engine with disk streaming, four Groove Players to animate sounds, and a mixer with 70 effects, FX sends and a master bus.

SampleTank 4 CS is free to download for everyone from the IK User Area.

SampleTank 4 Expansion Libraries

Also available are six new virtual Instrument Collections in the SampleTank 4 Expansion Library series. They offer a wide selection of instrument types ranging from drum loops to robotic sci-fi synths, designed to inspire diverse musical styles including funk, reggaeton, pop, indie rock, and more. They include:

SampleTank Editor

Last but not least, a new power is brought to SampleTank as you can now bring in your own sounds with the new SampleTank Editor. This is a free public beta sample import/programming tool that can be used to create your own new SampleTank 4 Instruments and Libraries.

SampleTank Editor allows you to:

  • Import and auto-map samples into SampleTank format.
  • Edit and adjust Zones and Oscillators.
  • Import custom icons and add descriptions and tags.
