More power than any sampler
SampleTank 2 launches sampling technology into new dimensions. For the first time in a sample-based instrument, 3 synth engines can be switched on the fly to provide more flexibility than ever before: traditional resampling, pitch-shift/time-stretch and the new STRETCH engine give you total control over Tempo, Tune and Harmonics. STRETCH (SampleTank Time REsynthesys TeCHnology) delivers incredibly rich, vibrant, and natural quality instrument sounds with full-control of tempo, tune and frequencies distribution to tailor tone and push sound design to the limits of your imagination.
More sounds than any sound module
SampleTank 2 beats any existing sound module for sound availability, variety, quality and expandibility. More than 5,000 native sounds are already available, and you can import unlimited sounds to take advantage of the exclusive synthesis engine. Import your own WAV, AIFF, SDII for loops and multisampled banks, plus read thousands of high-quality libraries in AKAI and SampleCell formats directly from the plug-in.
Full control over Synth-Sampler engine
SampleTank 2 allows full access to more than 50 synth-engine parameters, including filters, envelopes, LFOs, velocity, and the new switchable engines function, for unprecedented fine tuning and sound tweaking. The traditional "user" controls of SampleTank are still available for immediate tuning of dedicated instrument parameters. The new portamento feature provides exceptional monophonic performance.
16 layerable parts, full Mix control
The new Mix area provides complete, light-speed control over SampleTank's 16 multitimbral parts. Instant access to MIDI channel, Solo, Mute, Empty, Polyphony, Volume and Pan allows total control of up to 16-part mixing. The Mix Panel's instrument layering feature makes it easy to build amazing, 16-part layered sounds.
Enhanced instruments browsing, sound Data Base
Enhanced instruments browsing allows lighting fast access to thousands of sounds. The new collapsable folders structure makes SampleTank 2 the fastest sound browsing system ever made. Its integrated sound data base uses factory or user keywords for instant access to the perfect sounds.
Loop Sync feature
This exclusive new feature allows you to sync any Loop to the sequencer tempo with a single click and sync various Loops together with extreme ease. Loops can be stretched using one of the 3 available synth engines: resampling, pitch-shift/time-stretch or STRETCH, for everything from rich natural sounds to unique experimental sonic textures.
Zone Control for super accurate single sample editing
The new Zone Control allows you to dedicate SampleTank 2's overall features to edit a single sample with surgical precision. You can even STRETCH a single sample in a traditional resampled bank, and use Zone Control to edit samples with a simple key stroke.
32 DSP effects to choose from – Use up to 5 effects per instrument
SampleTank 2 is loaded with a huge arsenal of 32 award winning DSP effects – that's more effects than any other virtual instrument! New breath-taking effects include IK's renowned Amp and Cabinet simulators, new analog Phaser, Paramatric EQ, Compressor, Limiter and other effects for the richest, most realistic sounds imaginable. With an additional effects slot, SampleTank 2 allows up to 5 effects to be inserted for each instrument, offering more sound design flexibility and creativity than any other sampler or sound module.
Convenient Preset and Module Save and Back Up functions
Preset sounds can be saved as "child" sounds and modifications easily stored. Plus, Module Save stores the complete 16 part SampleTank 2 module, for fast and easy recall of customized sounds. You can even back up your session with one click for the fastest file exchange available. SampleTank 2 files can also be transparently swapped among different platfoms using a sequencer or OS.
