IK Multimedia SampleTron 2 Crossgrade

8GB virtual instrument collection of sought-after vintage and tape-based samplers
MFR# 1049-258

Product Description

IK Multimedia SampleTron 2 combines the powerful sound engine of IK’s award-winning SampleTank 4 with the industry-leading tape modeling technology to recreate the distinctive, ultra-vibey sounds of tape-based samplers from the ‘60s and ‘70s, along with quirky early digital sample players and vocoders.

This comprehensive collection features deep sampling of vintage Mellotron and Chamberlin tapes, a collection of new acoustic “non-Tron” sounds with tape processing, and now enables you to load your own samples and create modern audiophile Tron sounds that are uniquely yours.

From gothic to gritty

SampleTron 2 comes with a vast library of over 400 “tracks” that you can load into any preset—up to 3 at once—and then individually process with IK’s cutting-edge tape modeling DSP for ultimate tone-shaping flexibility.

While an extensive collection of new, original samples of vintage Mellotron and Chamberlin are included, SampleTron 2 also shines where it processes non-Tron material. Here you’ll gain access to exciting new sounds with the choir, strings, brass, organ, piano, bass, and even synths and vocoders that all come with SampleTron 2.

IK have also added vintage digital sample-based instruments such as the Mattel Optigan, Vako Orchestron and 360 Systems Digital Keyboard to give your creativity more options than any other Tron collection. And to complete the circle, you’ll find the full content of the much-revered original IK SampleTron product to bring legacy users totally up to date.

Authentic sound and vibe

In addition to sounding better than ever, SampleTron 2 looks the part with a gorgeous interface that’s true to the original instruments, remaining simple and intuitive to use. All 10 models are gloriously detailed and designed to give you the immersive experience of using actual vintage gear, even to the point of exposing their inner workings, all while maintaining uniform ease of use and functionality across the board.

Make it your Tron

All controls are intuitive to use with old-school looks that belie some ground-breaking engineering. Like the original Mellotron hardware, there are three available tracks for each preset. You can load any of the included tracks without having to fudge the track selector to combine them.

In addition to the included library, the ‘tron characteristics can be applied to any sound. Your own samples can now be easily loaded and mapped to take full advantage of the tape processing sound using IK’s industry-leading tape modeling technology. A panel of global controls along with six tape controls let you dial in exactly the right mood.

All the tools you need

When you want to fine-tune the sound further, SampleTron 2’s edit mode lets you dive deep into the preset parameters with controls for volume, pan, fine tune, transpose and high and low note range for each Track. You’ll also find additional synthesizer-style controls including a filter with selectable type and an amplitude envelope with velocity control for each track individually or all tracks combined. With SampleTron 2, you can truly invent your own Tron sound.

Effects like no other

SampleTron 2 includes a powerful set of effects to give each performance exactly the depth and dimension your music needs. Effects include a Channel Strip equalizer and compressor, Tape Echo, Multimod—with selectable chorus, ensemble, flanger, phaser, Uni-V and Rotary Speaker—and the new Vintage Plate Reverb that’s based on the Plate algorithm developed for AmpliTube 5 and MixBox.

Expansive versatility

SampleTron 2 works as a standalone app or as a plug-in, and it can also be used as a library in SampleTank 4* to expand its world of sounds. There you can make deeper edits, add more effects and play multiple instances of the 3-track SampleTron 2 presets on multiple MIDI channels, all with the convenience and processing power of IK'a popular song and groove workstation.

Requires SampleTank 4.1.4 or later.

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.
