Displaying the fruits of their link up with Moog, IK Multimedia and Sonic Reality have announced their latest collaborative effort, Sonik Instruments, a series of virtual instrument plug-ins dedicated to focused collections of rare and top-of-the-line instruments and sounds. The first announced of this series are SampleMoog, SampleTron, and Studiophonik. Hereâ€™s all the details in IKâ€™s own wordsâ€¦
SampleMoog is the most complete collection of Moog sounds ever released in one product, done in cooperation with Moog Music Inc. SampleMoog includes 22 rare, collectible Moog synths, accurately sampled and programmed with the addition of built-in effects. This sample-based product offers a wide range of basses, leads, pads, and effects from monstrous Moog Modulars to rare Minimoogs to Taurus Bass Pedals, Polymoogs, Memorymoogs and more â€“ virtually the entire range of Moog synthesizers in a single product.
SampleTron offers the most diverse collection of "Tron" sounds ever released in one product. It has samples of 18 rare, vintage keyboard instruments such as Mellotrons, Optigans, Chamberlins and other related "Tron" family instruments. These "Trons" were ingenious keyboards made in the 60's that were the predecessors of today's samplers, with the capability of reproducing many natural sounds that were recorded on tapes or disks and activated by keys. Brought to you from the personal archives of Dave Kerzner, CEO of Sonic Reality, this unique virtual instrument includes rare sounds Dave has sampled with artists such as Crowded House, Smashing Pumpkins, Tom Waits and more.
Studiophonik is a virtual instrument plug-in dedicated to reproducing the diverse sounds and instrumentation of full guitar, bass and drum bands recorded in high-end studios and includes a diverse collection of incredibly realistic instruments. It's like having three plug-ins in one, putting a complete studio with the ultimate selection of top-of-the-line and collectible vintage guitars, basses and drums right at your fingertips. Studiophonik combines over 30 high-quality studio drum, bass and guitar instruments from a diverse range of brands with powerful built-in modeled studio effects of the SampleTank engine to bring you a unique "virtual band" instrument like no other.
