IK Multimedia's Sample Tank 2.5 XL is an amazing sound workstation. Not only does it come with a huge collection of professionally recorded sound samples, instruments and loops, but it allows you to completely manipulate the sounds to truly create instruments, patterns and textures of your own. It comes with over 6 GB of sounds, more than any other sound library in the industry, and, more importantly, professionally recorded sounds that are truly useful in any genre of music.



SampleTank 2.5 XL comes with the widest variety of sounds in all instrument categories. You immediately have access to 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 SampleTank reads all "Powered by SampleTank" instruments' sounds, including Miroslav Philharmonik, Sonik Synth, SampleMoog, 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. Plus, you can also import your own WAV, AIFF, AKAI, SDII and Samplecell files for a truly unlimited world of sounds.



SampleTank 2.5 XL also comes with 33 built-in effects derived from an extensive collection of sought-after studio gear. This gives you the ability to totally control a sound, to dominate the instrument and make it the exact sound you hear in your head. And because it's your music, and the sounds you use to create your music should sound like you… the way you want them to sound.



To make great music, you need great sounds. SampleTank provides you with a massive and expandable library of incredible sounding instruments, pads, sound effects, presets and multi-instrument combinations. In fact, SampleTank XL ships with over 2,000 native sounds from over 6.4GB of samples from virtually every instrument category: bass, brass, electronic and acoustic drums, ethnic, guitar, loops, orchestra, organ, percussion, piano, strings, synth, vocals, woodwinds and more. You'll get the most extensive collection of sounds enabling you to create fully produced compositions without the need for additional instruments. However, if you can't get enough, SampleTank's libraries are fully expandable, and most common sample formats are supported. You can add to your sound library with any "Powered by SampleTank" product like Miroslav Philharmonik, SampleTron, SampleMoog and Sonik Synth 2, plus you can add any ReTank refill, or simply record your own.



SampleTank is the only sample workstation that sports 3 different type of sample-engines: traditional resampling, STRETCH and PS/TS, which allow you to manipulate sounds and samples in every imaginable way. The unique STRETCH engine delivers 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 (say goodbye to the "chipmunk" effect). When working with loops, the PSTS engine (Pitch-shift/Time-stretch) allows you to synchronize loops with one click, or control its tempo and pitch independently for the ultimate beat machine.



PS/TS has been designed to work with polyphonic material, such as ensemble instruments phrases, or percussive sounds such as drum loops and percussion grooves. With PS/TS, tempo and pitch can be controlled independently ensuring the best possible quality for this type of material and the most flexible manipulation possibilities. Plus, multiple loops with different tempos can be easily synced together with one click or synced to the host's tempo and remain true to their original feel and meaning.



STRETCH (Sampletank Time REsynthesis TeCHnology) has been designed for monophonic material (such as vocal, brass, winds, etc…), and provides full control over the tempo and tune of the samples. It gives any sample an incredibly rich, vibrant, and natural quality. STRETCH also expands your sonic manipulation capabilities by providing full-control of an instrument's basic spectrum distribution to tailor its tonal characteristics. You'll seriously have to experience this on your own… words can't begin to describe the euphoria. You see, most natural instruments lose their realism when played by a sampler, and you can immediately hear it. But the false sounding glide and bending in many traditional samples have been eliminated by STRETCH which delivers a new standard of musical realism, making virtual instruments more natural sounding than ever imagined (no more "chipmunk" effect). STRETCH gives more control over vital sound characteristics, delivers more realism than any other sample-based virtual instruments, and offers more tools to unleash creativity.



No other sample player engine gives you the power and flexibility that SampleTank offers in the effects section. This is where you take ordinary "sampled" sounds and make them truly your own. With its 33 built-in DSP effects, you'll be amazed at the level of realism you can achieve. Apply up to 5 effects per part, plus you get 5 send effects and 5 overall Master Effects. SampleTank will definitely have an effect on you.



The built-in effects in SampleTank give you an amazing array of creative tools at your fingertips. And we're not talking about just plain delays and reverbs… you get cabinet and speaker emulations, multi-modulators and envelope filters, pre-amp and amplifier simulators, compressors, eq, and other creative effects in addition to traditional effects like reverbs, delays and choruses. You'll be amazed at the flexibility of sounds you create, from creating realistic spaces to totally whacky "out of this world" sound. You'll have a blast.



The SampleTank interface is very intuitive and easy to use - so easy in fact that you really don't need to read the manual. Access more than 50 sampler controls.



SampleTank is a 16 voice layering multitimbral sound module. This means that you can program and play up to 16 individual sounds at a time (if you have 16 fingers, or you can use your toes). The layering feature allows you to layer parts "on top" of each other, so you can get multiple instrument sounds from a single key, thus creating ultra-rich tones and unique textures. Once you've created the perfect sounding sound, you can save it as a "Combi" preset to recall any time.
