IK Multimedia SampleTank 2 XL at a Glance:
  • STRETCH and Multi-Engine Synth
  • Tons of multisamples
  • Pitch shifting and time stretching
  • Simple to use
  • Works with just about everything

STRETCH and Multi-Engine Synth
SampleTank 2 is the ultimate sample workstation. For the first time in a sample-based instrument, 3 synth engines can be switched on the fly to provide more sound flexibility than ever before: traditional Resampling (the conventional method of playback most samplers use), Pitch-Shift/Time-Stretch and our all new STRETCH engine.

STRETCH (Sampletank Time REsynthesis TeCHnology) gives complete sonic control over the tempo, pitch and harmonics of samples. No more "chipmunk sounding" transposition, no more loops and phrases out of sync, no more limitations in musical expression.

Multisamples like you've never heard before!
Multisampled instruments with STRETCH deliver amazing realism and expression. Your performances come to life with true glide, bending, staccato and vibrato with an incredibly rich, vibrant and natural quality. Plus, pushing STRETCH to the limit can take you to a whole new world of unheard sonic territories.

Loops become playable instruments!
The Pitch-Shift/Time-Stretch allows to sync any loop to the sequencer tempo and sync various loops together with a single click! Slow loop tempos close to zero without affecting the pitch or have your loop tuned or singing by changing its pitch in real time without changing its tempo. Play loop phrases with chords in sync and run them through filters and effects for the first time in a virtual instrument. Only SampleTank 2 allows you to use loops as an instrument with unlimited expression.

Easy for every musician to use
All of this power is packed in a musician friendly interface and everything you need right in front of you. SampleTank 2 makes it easy to access more than 50 new synth-engine parameters including multi-mode filters, envelopes, LFOs and more for your own patch creation.

Instantly compatible with every platform!
SampleTank 2 is available for Mac 0S 9, Mac 0S X and Windows, VSTi, DXi, RTAS, MAS and Audio Units all from the same box.

Unlimited World Of Sounds
The widest selection of hi-quality playable sounds you cannot find anywhere else. SampleTank 2 XL includes two DVDs, more than 1,700 sounds for more than 6.5GB of samples. A multitude of Bass, Drums, Guitars, Orchestral, Ethnic, Organs, Percussion, Pianos, Strings, Brass, Vocals, Synths and Loops. SampleTank 2 XL gives you the inspiration for top quality composition and production right out of the box.

An effects powerhouse!
