Product Description

IK Multimedia SampleTank 2.5XL Software
SampleTank is the ultimate sample-workstation. With an exclusive combination of features and sounds, SampleTank stands apart from any other sample-based virtual instrument, as one of the most powerful and easy-to-use solutions for making fully produced songs out of the box.

The widest variety of sounds in all instruments categories just one click away. You can immediately get tons of Acoustic Grand Pianos, Electric Pianos, Strings, Brass, Winds, Vocals, Orchestral sounds, Organs, Percussion, Drums, Basses, Guitars, Synths, Loops, Ethnic sample and more. Plus now SampleTank has the ability to read all “Powered by SampleTank” instruments’ sounds, including Miroslav Philharmonik, Sonik Synth and the upcoming SampleMoog, Studiophonik and SampleTron. This way you can work much faster and more creatively by having access to thousands of high-quality sounds from a single interface. If this is not enough, you can also import your own WAV, AIFF, AKAI, SDII and Samplecell files for a truly unlimited world of sounds.

3 advanced sample engines allow unique sound manipulation with multi-samples and loops. SampleTank is the only sample workstation that sports 3 different type of sample-engines: traditional resampling, STRETCH™ and PS/TS. The unique STRETCH™ engine will deliver amazing realism and expression over multi-sampled instruments. Your performances will come to life with true glide, bending, full control over staccato and vibrato, with an incredibly rich, vibrant, and natural sound quality (no more “chip-munk” effect). When working with loops, the PSTS engine (Pitch-shift/Time-stretch) will allow you to synchronize loops with one click, or control its tempo and pitch independently for the ultimate beat machine.

The most powerful multi-effects built in a virtual instrument. Every sound in SampleTank is programmed with fully editable built-in effects so drums load up with reverb and compression, guitars with amp-sim, electric organs with rotary speaker and so on. With 5 insert effects per parts and the new 5 send and 5 master effects you can have up to 90 effects available in this production powerhouse. These effects can be selected within the 33 high-quality effects of SampleTank that offer also algorithms from IK’s award winning T-RackS, Classik Studio Reverb and AmpliTube! The top quality IK modeling effects is immediately available to you, just by loading the SampleTank sounds.

So easy to use that you do not need to read the manual. You’re up and going within seconds. More than 50 sampler controls are accessible from an easy-to-use and highly accessible single interface. That’s why you can spend more time focusing on your music instead of studying complex manuals written for engineers and not musicians. That’s also why you’ll find yourself loading up SampleTank as your ‘go-to’ instrument every time you want to let your creativity flow.

So efficient and fast loading that you can easily install it in your laptop and use it as your mobile virtual workstation. SampleTank is so efficient that it can be easily installed and can run from even a modestly priced laptop. Sounds can load up so fast that its performance is comparable to the one of hardware synths and samplers. That is why more and more musicians use SampleTank for their live performances. Try to do this with other complicated and heavy-load sample-based virtual instruments, and you can immediately see the difference!

These are some of the reasons why thousands of top artists and musicians (including Grammy® winning names like Eminem, Genesis, Asia, Nickelback, Aereosmith, Shakira, Black Eyed Peas, Outkast, Herbie Hancock, Nine Inch Nails, Laura Pausini just to name a few) have chosen SampleTank in scores of records and soundtracks worldwide.

The new SampleTank 2.5 is available in 2 versions: SampleTank XL and L, which differ only by the number of sounds included. If you want the best, the new SampleTank 2.5 XL comes with 2 DVDs and over 1,800 sounds (for over 6.5GB of samples) plus an extra bonus sound disk! Your second option is the L version, an affordable introduction to SampleTank that includes 1 DVD and over 900 sounds.

Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The add-ons are incredible, there's so much to put into this thing. I added SampleTron, Miroslav Philharmonic and 9 Xpansion Pack modules. One important thing is the sounds are much better when you used them, instead of listening to them in web demos. For example the Miroslav sounds are the highest quality range, where on the web they are ugly classical sounds. Sampletron is really exciting if you like retro styles.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
The screen is a little hard to read from a distance and the window stays one size. But I like how there are no extra windows or pages to work on, everything stays on one page. There's no manual and the menu bar has only 2 options.
Value
Was this item an overall good value?
Got this during 15yr company celebration. The deals were all amazing. I'd keep a watch on IK for more specials as time goes by. IK has to be the coolest music company on the planet.
