Musikmesse 2007IK Multimedia and Sonic Reality announce 'Sonik Instruments' : SampleMoog, SampleTron, and Studiophonik

IK Multimedia

IK Multimedia and Sonic Reality have announced their latest collaborative effort, Sonik Instruments, a series of virtual instrument plug-ins dedicated to focused collections of rare and top-of-the-line instruments and sounds. The first announced of this series are SampleMoog, SampleTron, and Studiophonik.

Each of these Sonik Instruments offers a full synth-sampler engine powered by SampleTank with a customized graphic interface and a full range of built-in multi-effects. 16 multi-timbral parts, 4 insert effects and 4 send effects per part, selectable among more than 30 high-quality effects (with algorithms derived from IK's T-RackS and AmpliTube), fast loading and low-CPU demands, VST/AU/RTAS and stand-alone availability are only some of the high-end features that each of these Sonik Instruments is able to offer. Moreover, all Sonik Instrument sounds can also be loaded within SampleTank 2.5.

SampleMoogSampleMoog is the most complete collection of Moog sounds ever released in one product, done in cooperation with Moog Music Inc . This virtual instrument takes you back in time to the days of analog and honors one of the founding fathers of synthesis, Bob Moog. SampleMoog includes 22 rare, collectible Moog synths, accurately sampled and programmed with the addition of built-in effects. This sample-based product offers a wide range of basses, leads, pads, and effects from monstrous Moog Modulars to rare Minimoogs to Taurus Bass Pedals, Polymoogs , Memorymoogs and more ­ virtually the entire range of Moog synthesizers in a single product. An homage to the incredible history of vintage, keyboard instruments from the first Moog Theremin to the latest Minimoog Voyager, this plug-in is a must-have for any fan of the 'Moog Sound.'

SampleTronSampleTron offers the most diverse collection of 'Tron' sounds ever released in one product. It has samples of 18 rare, vintage keyboard instruments such as Mellotrons, Optigans, Chamberlins and other related 'Tron' family instruments. These 'Trons' were ingenious keyboards made in the 60's that were the predecessors of today's samplers, with the capability of reproducing many natural sounds that were recorded on tapes or disks and activated by keys. Brought to you from the personal archives of Dave Kerzner, CEO of Sonic Reality, this unique virtual instrument includes rare sounds Dave has sampled with artists such as Crowded House, Smashing Pumpkins, Tom Waits and more. SampleTron gives you more creative control over the sound than any other software vintage keyboard instrument. Combi instruments allow you to build extremely complex sound layering for powerful lo-fi orchestral soundscapes. SampleTron not only has traditional classic and progressive rock sounds such as the 'Strawberry Fields Forever' flute and sounds used by the Moody Blues, Yes, and Genesis, but also includes unusual quirky sounds that today's alternative, rock, hip-hop and film composers are in search of.

StudiophonikStudiophonik is a virtual instrument plug-in dedicated to reproducing the diverse sounds and instrumentation of full guitar, bass and drum bands recorded in high-end studios and includes a diverse collection of incredibly realistic instruments. It's like having three plug-ins in one, putting a complete studio with the ultimate selection of top-of-the-line and collectible vintage guitars, basses and drums right at your fingertips. Studiophonik combines high-quality studio drum, bass and guitar instruments with powerful built-in modeled studio effects of the SampleTank engine to bring you a unique 'virtual band' instrument like no other. Studiophonik also gives you deeper control of pickups, microphones, performance nuances and mixing for the ultimate studio instrument expression. With more control over the sound, you can adjust ambient mics on drums, change pickups on guitars and basses in real-time and process them internally with vintage modeled compressors, EQ, limiters, guitar amps, phasers, flangers, delays, reverbs and more. Studiophonik includes over 30 high-quality instruments with a wide range of brands offering one of the most authentic and diverse collections of guitar, bass and drums.
