App Description

SampleTank Mobile Sound and Groove Workstation

SampleTank 2 for iOS is a professional-quality fully-featured mobile sound and groove workstation that brings the sound, power and features of professional desktop virtual instruments to your iPad and iPhone — without compromise. SampleTank 2 for iOS is designed for live performance and song composition anywhere, any time. It puts over 1,900 available world-class instruments at your fingertips: piano, organ, drums, bass, guitar, strings, synths, percussion, vocals and more!

SampleTank 2 gives you 8 multitimbral instrument slots that you can layer, create splits and multis with ease, and choose from 16 instrument categories for an expandable sound collection that cover virtually every acoustic, electric and electronic sound you may need. Plus, each instrument category includes instrument riffs and grooves, so you can start composing and playing live immediately.

Its instruments and new sound engine derived from the flagship SampleTank for desktop computers give you unmatched realism, sound variety and audio performance: It is once again a true premier for the iOS world. For the first time on this platform, thousands 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 — desktop sound and performance in your pocket or on your iPad.

SampleTank 2 comes with 140 instruments and over 1,000 patterns — plenty of fresh sounds to get your creative juices going. But what makes SampleTank 2 the best choice for mobile musicians is the range of over 700 professional sounds you can expand it with:

- “Classic Keys” offers 73 keyboard instruments (piano, electric piano, and organ)
- “Synths” delivers 279 instruments (including synth leads, pads, hits, and FX)
- “Bass” offers 25 electric and 43 synth basses
- “Ethnic & Voices” presents 21 ethnic instruments and 10 vocal instruments
- “Drums and Loops” includes 61 instruments in 5 categories (drums, groove construction kits, acoustic drum loops, Latin percussion loops, and percussion)
- “All Pro-Sounds” bundle includes all of the above selection of 544 Instruments in 15 instrument categories

What’s more, three additional new signature sound packs are also available as in-app purchase:

- “Alan Parsons Grand Piano”, 13 piano sounds produced by legendary Pink Floyd engineer
- “Future Synths”, 150 synth sounds and patterns for a lifetime's worth of sound design
- “Elektronika - Deep House” an essential mix of 4 loop construction kits and 32 jackin’ beats, big-room bass, shiny synths, classic pianos, huge FX instruments and more

All new sounds are in addition to the previously available sounds — the original factory sound set, the Orchestral Miroslav Philharmonik collection plus the Sonik Synth and SampleMoog synth collections. This brings the total universe of SampleTank 2 for iOS sounds to over 1,900 instruments and over 1,200 MIDI patterns — the largest collection of sounds available for any virtual instrument on the iOS platform.
