Until now, I've been using my computer as little more then a tape recorder. I've been reluctant to dive into soft synths and computer samplers. However, I got the itch for a new synth, and really couldn't justify dropping a couple thousand dollars just to get new sounds to play with. So I bought Sampletank 2xl based on the price and the reviews I've read. I wasn't expecting much, but what I got was basically a whole new workstation synth. I've found it to have sounds as good as my high end workstation keyboards and it was actually easier to use. This is a really great program if you want quality sounds and ease of use, and still have tons of flexibility to create your own sounds.
