The largest sample library IK has ever produced - over 260 GB including over 200 GB of all-new sounds - 8000 sounds in total! - upgrade from SampleTank 4
MFR# 1049-205

Product Description

IK Multimedia SampleTank 4 MAX has been re-designed from the ground up to be every musician’s “go to” workstation for music creation, with a completely new rescalable interface, a massively expanded sample library and a new cutting-edge sound engine with efficient disk streaming, to deliver more powerful music creation tools than you ever imagined. What might usually take dozens of plug-ins can be accomplished right inside SampleTank 4, for lightning-fast workflow that keeps your inspiration going. SampleTank 4 MAX is the complete sound and groove workstation with over 250 GB of samples and sounds.

Find any type of sound fast and tailor them to your needs with the new deep, powerful editing options and a new modulation matrix. New dynamic “groove players” – an arpeggiator, strummer, and pattern and loop players – turn your sounds into songs faster than ever.

Plus a new live mode makes SampleTank 4 the perfect performance partner, with the ability to create entire set lists and easily map every parameter just how you need it.

Inspiring new sounds, powerful sound design features, advanced groove creation and tour-ready stage optimization. SampleTank 4 will take you wherever you want to go.

It all starts with sound

Your “go to” virtual instrument is the one you open first; the one you trust to give you the sounds you need to get started or get the job done. SampleTank 4 now offers a massive sound library, with over 260 GB and 8,000 instrument presets carefully balanced across the widest range of styles, genres and sounds.

SampleTank 4’s new library is the product of dozens of carefully conducted recording sessions in multiple cities across Europe and the United States as well as in IK's new, custom-built recording facility in Modena, Italy.

What’s new in SampleTank 4 Sound Library 1.5

  • New Pedal Steel Guitar instrument
  • Added All-articulation key-switch instruments for Strings

This new library offers up to 200 GB of brand new content including exclusive high-quality recordings of concert piano, keyboards, guitars, bass, drums, strings, brass, synths, vocals, percussion and more; over 90,000 new samples in total, all with articulations and round-robins. Thanks to SampleTank 4’s new efficient disk-streaming engine, these sounds all load faster than ever and perform like never before.

SampleTank 4’s fully redesigned sound Browser allows you to surf among the thousands of included sounds, and filter them by timbre, style, genre, mood, and more, to narrow down the exact sound fast or inspire your creativity with unexpected options. Detailed descriptions of each sound, effects and macro provide all the information you need at a glance, letting you focus on your music. SampleTank 4 makes finding or discovering sounds so effortless you’ll find yourself reaching for it every time.

Dig Deeper

SampleTank 4 is now capable of so much more when it comes to creative sound design.

Working with multiple sounds is a breeze with the new dedicated Layer interface that lets you set up layers and splitting points faster than ever.

Opening the “Edit” panel of the Play window reveals the real power of SampleTank 4’s completely re-designed new sound engine, letting you dig into even the smallest detail.

Whether you’re looking to surgically craft a sound or just make an instrument sit better in your mix, SampleTank 4 gives you the controls to make it happen without opening another plug-in.

Animate your sound

SampleTank 4 turns presets into performances with 4 new “Player” sections: the Arpeggiator, Strummer, Phraser and Loop Manager. The Arpeggiator offers fresh ways to create patterns. Draw in up to 16-note patterns, set velocity, length, swing and more. The Strummer lets you set chords, position, direction, and more, and then intelligently creates your accompaniment. Use the Phraser pattern player to browse over 4,000 MIDI patterns and map them to keys fast. Adjust intensity, humanize and swing for infinite variations. The Loop Manager boasts over 7,500 loops available between loop instruments. Pitch, grain, and time controls keeps things fresh.

These 4 powerful new Players make SampleTank 4 one of the most powerful groove creation workstations ever.

Mix faster than ever

SampleTank has always made it easy to layer and mix sounds, and the new Parts interface streamlines this process even more, with visual indications of each sound loaded, and instant access to volume, pan, mute, and solo controls.

Mixing is faster and more powerful, with in-interface access to all onboard effects. You can mix an entire track in one window, keeping you focused on the music and not menu-diving.

The best effects get even better

SampleTank 4 adds 13 new effects for a grand total of 70. You’ve never heard effects like these in a virtual instrument – they’re all derived from IK's industry-leading AmpliTube and T-RackS software.

From unbelievably realistic tube saturation to classic analog pedal effects, professional studio processors to creative effects, you can shape your sound with the same effects heard on countless hit records and film scores.

SampleTank 4 also adds a new effects modulation matrix, giving you more ways to modulate and shape your sound than ever before. Map any parameter of the effects to the source of your choice, adjust curves and levels, and more.

Hands-on control

SampleTank 4 also adds to its full MIDI control a new seamless integration with IK’s iRig Keys I/O controllers. You can browse and load sounds from the DATA knob, control any of the 8 macros instantly from the touch-sensitive encoders, control the transport and even trigger loops or browse drum samples, or launch live-set ups directly from the integrated pad controllers.

With SampleTank 4 and iRig Keys I/O, you have an entire production system.

From the studio to the stage

A great song deserves to be performed, so SampleTank 4 makes this easier than ever to hit the stage. A unique, re-designed Live mode lets you build an entire set list and gives you the controls you need right at your fingertips for your live performances.

SampleTank 4’s Live mode lets you focus on the performance, not your software.

Each song can have its own pre-set tempo, letting you use loops & grooves without needing to adjust settings between songs. And each sound has its own volume control, so you can turn up for your solo without needing to do a thing on stage. Quickly build a set list, and assign program change messages to each sound so you can switch directly from your controller.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
