■ Everything from sound
SampleTank 4 was developed to be the "first to launch" instrument when composing. Not only does it have all the tones needed for composition, but it also ensures quality that can be used as is in the final work. Up to 8,000 presets with a good balance of a wide range of styles, genres and sounds can reach 250GB*.
The new library contains 200GB of all-new sounds, including concert pianos, keyboards, guitars, drums, strings, brass, synths, and percussion*. The total number of new samples is over 90,000*. Not only samples for each articulation, but also round robin samples that generate natural variations when hitting the same sound repeatedly are included. SampleTank 4's efficient disk streaming engine allows these samples to load faster than ever before.
SampleTank 4's new sound library was carefully recorded in IK's own studio, custom-built in Modena in Italy, Europe, and the United States.
In SampleTank 4, the browser for selecting tones has been redesigned. Thousands of recorded sounds can be narrowed down by tone, style, genre, mood, and more. You can quickly extract the tone you want, or you can get inspiration from unexpected search results. Detailed descriptions, effects, and macros for each sound are also displayed at the same time, so you can quickly get the information you need. The browser function renewed in this way provides an environment where you can instantly get the sound and information you need so that you can concentrate on your production as much as you want.
SampleTank 4 enables more creative sound design than ever before.
The new Layer screen makes it easy to combine multiple sounds. You can quickly set the velocity layer and split point.
In the Edit panel, SampleTank 4's new sound engine section allows you to meticulously edit every detail.
■ Mix quickly
SampleTank 4 makes layering and mixing of each part smoother than ever. The Parts screen provides a visual view of each loaded sound, with instant access to controls such as volume, pan, mute, and solo.
Mixing is easier than ever, with access to all the effects on each track in a single window.
■ Highest quality effect
SampleTank 4 contains a total of 70 effects (including 13 new effects) that overturn the traditional multi-part software instrument concept. All of these are the highest quality effects inherited from IK Multimedia's AmpliTube and T-RackS.
SampleTank 4 includes a number of effects/processors, including realistic tube saturators, classic analog pedal effects, and professional studio processors. You can brush up your sound with effects and processors similar to the sounds of that hit song and that movie that everyone knows.
■ Seamless control
SampleTank 4 provides seamless MIDI control integrated with iRig Keys I/O. You can browse and load sounds with the DATA knob, control eight macros with the touch-sensitive encoder, transport songs, trigger loops with pads, browse drum samples, activate live sets, and more.
The iRig Keys I/O also features high-definition audio interfaces, so you can take your powerful recording studio anytime, anywhere with just this keyboard, SampleTank 4, and DAW software.
■ From the studio to the stage
SampleTank 4 is also optimized for playing on stage. In the redesigned live mode, you can build a set list that saves the settings for each song, and you can recall each setting immediately.
Live mode allows you to focus on your performance as if you were using the hardware, without having to launch your DAW software.
You can set the tempo for each song individually, so you can rest assured when using loop tones that are affected by the tempo setting. You can also set the volume of each tone in the song individually, so you don't have to manually adjust the volume when playing a solo part. If you assign a program change number to each sound, you can switch tones including volume by simply sending the program change from the MIDI keyboard.
