I am struggling to use sample tank! I run ableton on my mac and the samples come out sounding like they wanna kill my ears! Not good! I've read other stuff about sample tank not running well in ableton, does anyone know about this?

take it easy peeps!

does anybody know how to connect multiple keyboards to a single sampletank

I'm trying to build a setup based on a single sampletank to play prog rock music ( so I need many keyboards )

I like the sounds of sample tank, but I can't seems to connect more than one keyboard at a time.

is there a walk around? can I make a virtual MIDI bridge? it looks like you can send 16 channels to sampletank. so I guess I need a trick how to re-route all the MIDI keyboards to a single device? I can do that in Linux but not in windows... I'm lost here..

thanks, for the help.

You probably need an intermediary program if you are unable to daisy chain keyboards. In Reaper, you can open multiple MIDI devices on a track and have it pass-through the source channel numbers.

Hi frankz00, If you have sampletank working as a plug-in for reaper, can I ask you what file you put in the 32-bit program files VST folder? I tried all the files from the .vpa to the .xrs to the standalone and the .dxi, but Reaper can't see it.

All I have in my VST folder is SampleTank2.x.dll. The .dxi files are system installed and Reaper should list them under the DXi section under effects.

Hi frankz00 - I run windows, but I suggest you do a search for sampletank.x. I discovered two or three files I needed besides the .dll to make the thing go. Besides the .dxi, there was a vs something. Anyway, get all the sampletank.x files in your VST folder.

will the free Reg'd version be eligible for the Sampletank 3 Sweetwater upgrade ? I just found out from my sales rep that the ship date is being upped to the 24th and the 23rd is the LAST DAY TO PREORDER !! I was given the free version after I bought SampleMOOG, SampleTRON, Sonik Synth 2 and many expansions for ST & SS. I've called for days and get a recording, I have opened tickets, and so far I've heard NOTHING FROM IK !! thanks very much.

Here's an excerpt from the email sent by IKM yesterday in answer to your question:

  • "This is the final week to pre-order SampleTank 3 for as low as $99.99/€79.99 if you own SampleTank 2 XL or Miroslav Philharmonik full. You can also crossgrade for just $149.99/€119.99 if you own any other paid IK software, hardware or app. Hurry, there are only a few days left!".

SampleTank Free doesn't qualify you for the pre-order upgrade price. You have to own SampleTank 2XL or Miroslav Philharmonik full to get the $99.99 price. But since you own SampleMoog, SampleTron, and SoniSynth you qualify for the crossgrade price.

Thanks for the heads up! The color scheme of the original interface was kind of cool, BUT TOO SMALL! I'm sure they got tons of hate mail about this. It looks like they fixed this and it's great they have a MIDI engine now. Maybe my Sonic Synth won't keep crashing now.

I got this a while ago, but IK was brutal about my authorization codes (they told me the one they sent me was "out of date", and did so for the other 3 I requested; excuse you?). Had to really arm-wrestle with them through email to get it to work. OK sounds, somewhat tweakable, some good verb and effects, but I use it mostly as a plug-&-play. Not a go-to for tracks, but for me it's a good sketch pad or when layering with other things (horns, strings, drums, etc). The Rhodes keyboards just miss by about half an inch.
