IK Multimedia SampleTank 2.1XL Sampler Software
Ultimate Sample Experience, Unlimited World of Sounds!
SampleTank2 is the ultimate sample workstation. For the first time in a sample-based instrument, 3 synth engines can be switched on the fly to provide more sound flexibility than ever before: traditional Resampling (the conventional method of playback most samplers use), Pitch-Shift/Time-Stretch and IK's all new STRETCH™ engine.
STRETCH (Sampletank Time REsynthesis TeCHnology) gives complete sonic control over the tempo, pitch and harmonics of samples. No more "chipmunk sounding" transposition, no more loops and phrases out of sync, no more limitations in musical expression.
SampleTank2 XL includes all the sounds you'll need to create professional music tracks:
Multisamples like you've never heard before!
- 16 parts multitimbral plug-in sound workstation with layerable parts.
- 3 synth engines: new STRETCH, Pitch-shift/Time-stretch, Resampling.
- 32 built-in DSP effects, 5 effects per part.
- Loop sync and time/ pitch manipulation.
- Import WAV, AIFF, SDII, AKAI, SampleCell plus native sounds.
- 8 CDs of sounds, 4.5 GB of samples and more than 1.500 patches included.
Multisampled instruments with STRETCH deliver amazing realism and expression. Your performances come to life with true glide, bending, staccato and vibrato with an incredibly rich, vibrant and natural quality. Plus, pushing STRETCH to the limit can take you to a whole new world of unheard sonic territories.
Loops become playable instruments!
The Pitch-Shift/Time-Stretch allows to sync any loop to the sequencer tempo and sync various loops together with a single click! Slow loop tempos close to zero without affecting the pitch or have your loop tuned or singing by changing its picth in real time without changing its tempo. Play loop phrases with chords in sync and run them through filters and effects for the first time in a virtual instrument. Only SampleTank2 allows you to use loops as an instrument with unlimited expression.

All of this power is packed in a musician friendly interface and everything you need right in front of you. SampleTank2 makes it easy to access more than 50 new synth-engine parameters including multi-mode filters, envelopes, LFOs and more for your own patch creation.
