IK Multimedia releases SampleTank v2.5

IK Multimedia

IK Multimedia has announced that SampleTank 2.5 is now available. It includes many new features such as an enhanced built-in multi-effects system with send and master effects, the addition of a high-quality studio reverb, the ability to read all "Powered by SampleTank" instruments and more.

New effects section with SEND and MASTER effects. IK Multimedia has added an expanded FX system that now includes 5 new Master insert effects and 5 Send pre/post effects, in addition to the previous 5 effects per part. All are selectable among the expanded list of high quality effects (including DSP taken from AmpliTube and T-RackS). This means you have an effects powerhouse for your sounds with up to 15 effects per part (and up to 90 per instance).

Includes a high quality reverb from Classik Studio Reverb. The addition of a high-quality reverb derived from Classik Studio Reverb brings the overall list of available DSP effects in SampleTank 2.5 to 33. This reverb, which emulates the sound of high-end classic studio reverbs, will give your sound spaciousness and character.

Extended feature set. The addition of several convenient features like the new Global Volume/Pan, Master Loop sync or the new selectable Portamento curves, extend the feature set.

More sounds. 200 new Combi patches have been specially designed, based on the SampleTank 2 XL sound set, taking full advantage of the 16 multi-timbral parts of SampleTank 2.5. Additionally, the newly boxed version of SampleTank 2.5 XL will include an extra bonus sound disk for up to 600MB of sounds not previously included.

Able to read any "Powered by SampleTank" instruments. SampleTank 2.5 allows the immediate usage of sounds in Miroslav Philharmonik, Sonik Synth and the upcoming "Powered by SampleTank" Sonik Instruments: SampleMoog, SampleTron and StudioPhonik. This allows you to work from a single interface accessing thousands of sounds that can now be mixed, matched, combined and edited with the extended feature set of SampleTank 2.5.
