SampleTank is the result of more than a decade of innovation

Originally released in 2001, SampleTank was the first plug-in to offer multi-part sampled sound with integrated effects. Created in collaboration with Sonic Reality, SampleTank proved immensely popular, providing DAW-based musicians with the ability to play sampled musical instruments via MIDI with built-in effects. SampleTank 2 hit the industry in 2003, carrying the torch as the industry-standard sound workstation thanks to its quality sounds, ease of use, and innovative features. Now, building on the features of its predecessors, SampleTank MAX is here to become a staple piece in your studio's sonic arsenal.

Massive quantity of content provides plenty of creative options

Shipping with over 52GB of samples, 4,600 ready-to-play instruments, 7,400 rhythm loops, and 3,500 MIDI files, SampleTank MAX offers a plethora of pianos, drums, basses, guitars, brass, strings, vocals, and just about anything else that you can think of. This isn't just a budget collection of samples, either. Recorded using world-class musicians in world-class studios, SampleTank MAX's content has a quality and character that rivals the best dedicated virtual instruments. IK Multimedia SampleTank MAX is ready to liven up your compositions with realistic, expertly played instruments.

Retooled software engine delivers an ultra-realistic performance

Employing dozens of novel features, SampleTank MAX delivers an ultra-realistic performance, while being efficient on your CPU and loading sounds fast. SampleTank MAX's round robin sample switching activates several samples for each given note, creating an ultra-organic, hyperrealistic performance. You can even use key switch, modulation wheel, or velocity switch commands to perfectly emulate natural-sounding performances that sound incredibly lifelike. You can also use SampleTank MAX's three synth engines, along with its substantial collection of filter effects, to create unique new electronic sounds.

Built-in MIDI engine lets you build killer grooves

When combined with its considerable collection of grooves and MIDI patterns, SampleTank MAX allows you to quickly and easily build out-of-this-world rhythm tracks directly inside the software and export them to your DAW. By using SampleTank MAX's multi-part pattern player, you can load up to 16 recycled loop patterns or MIDI patterns with full control over transposition, intensity, and quantization. You'll be creating complex and inspiring grooves in no time by combining drums, percussion, and bass patterns - all within SampleTank MAX!

Analog-modeled and digital effects for professional-sounding sonic creations

SampleTank MAX goes well beyond plain-sounding reverb and chorus effects. By integrating their world-renowned high-end analog-modeled and digital effects, IK Multimedia has injected SampleTank MAX with unprecedented sonic flavor. You can use AmpliTube vintage analog-modeled effects like Chorus-1 or TapeEcho directly on your keyboard or bass sounds. You can also use a rotary speaker on your organ sounds, or T-RackS outboard like the Black76, White 2A, or Model670 on your drum sounds. You'll absolutely love what SampleTank MAX's convolution reverb does for your grand pianos!
