NEW SONIK SYNTH MOBILE EDITION WITH OVER 300 INSTRUMENTS NOW AVAILABLE

SampleTank is a professional-quality sound and groove workstation that puts hundreds of world-class instruments and patterns at your fingertips: piano, organ, drums, bass, guitar, strings, synths, percussion, vocals and more!

SampleTank gives you 16 instrument categories for an expandable sound set of over 600 instruments that cover virtually every acoustic, electric and electronic sound you may need. Plus, each category includes instrument riffs and grooves, so you can immediately use the over 1,000 included patterns.

Its instruments give you unmatched realism, sound variety and audio performance: It's a true premier for the iOS world. For the first time on this platform, hundreds of professional sample-based sounds and patterns can be easily accessed, layered and used for playing live. Now you can make music anytime and anywhere the inspiration hits you.

SampleTank comes with 136 instruments and over 1,000 patterns. You can expand your sound library a-la-carte via in-app purchase with 22 Sound Packs for each instrument category including Drums, Bass, Guitar, Piano, Electric Piano, Organ, Chromatic, Strings, Brass, Woodwinds, Synth Leads, Synth Pads, Trons, Voices, Ethnic, Percussion and Sound FX (or download the complete SampleTank Sound Packs bundle). You can also purchase the new SampleMoog™ - Mobile Edition and Miroslav Philharmonik - Mobile Edition downloadable Sound Collections in the in-app store to add over 200 of the best analog synth and orchestral instruments from these legendary libraries.

Though SampleTank works effortlessly with your device's touchscreen, it also offers many other control options. Try it with the iRig MIDI interface to jam with your favorite MIDI controllers, just like you would a regular sound or synth module. For an even more portable experience, use iRig KEYS with Lightning® or iRig KEYS Pro mini-keyboard controllers to jam out while on the go. No matter how you use it, its built-in tools will inspire you to create professional sounding music anywhere your mobile life takes you.

The latest version of SampleTank includes plug-and-play support for iRig Pads, IK's new ultra-portable groove controller. With it, you can use two different modes — basic and full integration — that let you control SampleTank and its drum machine-style PADS section with different degrees of flexibility. Just connect your iRig Pads and you'll be ready to take your grooves to go.

IK has also unveiled a new sound pack called "The Grid" that's tailored towards mobile beatmaking and electronic music. Available via in-app purchase, it includes 50 instruments and 50 patterns in two categories: DRUMS and a new SYNTH FX category. With it you can get kits for Hip-Hop, Dubstep, Techno, EDM, Breaks, House and more!

SampleTank delivers the same sound and performance quality that you’d expect from our high-end professional studio products — Plus lightning-fast sound loading and near-zero latency makes putting the groove in your pocket easy. So get in the pocket and get SampleTank.
