IK Multimedia SampleTank 4 v4.0.8 CS (Win & Mac) Latest Version

SampleTank 4 v4.0.8 CS For Win & MacOS Free Download

IK Multimedia SampleTank 4 is now available in three editions; SE, the ‘standard’ and MAX. All use the new front-end but are supplied with different sizes of sound library. For this review, I had access to the fully-loaded MAX version which offers 250GB of samples spread across some 8000 instruments. For the SE and standard versions, those numbers are 30GB/2000 instruments and 100GB/6000 instruments respectively, reflecting their different prices. SampleTank 4 runs as both a stand-alone application (useful for live performance) and as a multi-format plug-in.

Usefully, the IK website has a PDF document that details the content provided in each edition so you can see exactly what you will get. The expanded content offers plenty of ‘new for v4’ samples including acoustic pianos, bass, brass, strings, guitars, acoustic and electric drums, percussion, synths, voices and woodwinds. Users also get access to some content from earlier SampleTank releases with, again, different selections for each edition.

This is a virtual instrument that all but the most technophobic of computer-based musicians ought to be able to handle.

To get you started, SampleTank 4 CS’s comprehensive sample library offers 50 Instruments, made up of over 4 GB of sounds in 16 categories, covering all the essential instrument basics, from piano to drums, synthesizers to guitars, and more.

These all-new sounds are freshly produced for immaculate sound and specially programmed to make full use of all SampleTank 4’s deep sound creation features.

In addition, 200 new MIDI loops make it easy to build full tracks, bringing your music to life faster than ever.
