5 GB harddisk space gone for what? A bunch of not too bad effects, and many boring instrument presets.
I've would have been impressed by this if we had 1998, but in 2021 it is just a waste of space and time.
Sorry IK, I love your Modo Bass but Sampletank is an inflated dinosaur and, in my opinion, the same applies to NI's Komplete Start.
Big but boring.

Does't impress. Library sounds utterly unconvincing, especially by today's standards. The best parts of ST are still the best parts of version 2.5, namely the Mellotron library and the Stretch algorithm. IK should have invested effort in converting a sampler with potential into a stellar user-based sampling juggernaut rather than adding filler and minimal improvements over version 3, resulting in this disappointing ROMpler. The only plugin I still use from IK is Stealth (which is ironically AMAZING, and I promote it heavily).

Takes up a lot of resources making it barely useable. Very nice looking gui, and i would love to play more around with it, but it is way too slow for me.

Perhaps a stupid question but if one already owns a copy of the full SampleTank 4, is there any point in downloading this free CS version. Are there additional patches that aren't already included with the full version of SampleTank 4?

Thanx, .

Rawl.

You wouldn't need SampleTank 4 CS itself (the program and plugin) but the 4GB+ sounds are available to you as a SampleTank 4 user and they are new (and quite good!). You can download those in your Sound Downloads in your IK User Area.

Edit - also meant to say you might also be interested in the SampleTank 4 Editor that you get free since you have SampleTank 4. That will appear in your IK User Area as well.

Peter, .

Thanks so much for the clarifying response. I will download the sounds today. Also, the editor since I like to tinker.

I have Sampletank 2 and Sampletank 3 (full versions). Can my sounds from these instruments be imported into Sampletank 4 CS? Is there any advantage in doing so?

Yes, any SampleTank 3 or earlier sounds can be used in SampleTank 4. Any earlier sounds must be imported into SampleTank 3, and once imported, they can be loaded directly into SampleTank 4 and used with all of the FX and features of SampleTank 4.

Do note, SampleTank 3 sounds will use the SampleTank 3 engine in SampleTank 4, so sounds will not have all of the functions of the SampleTank 4 engine, but you will still have the benefit of being on a later software which will be updated moving forward.
