IK Multimedia has announced a new version of SampleTank, the virtual instrument and sound module for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that gives mobile musicians access to the SampleMoog - Mobile Edition collection of instrument sounds, plus adds Inter-App Audio features allowing SampleTank to run as an instrument app for Inter-App Audio compatible recording apps like GarageBand for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Here's more details in IK's own words...
The SampleMoog Mobile Edition for SampleTank mobile is available as an in-app purchase and is derived from the SampleMoog standalone app and DAW plug-in for Mac/PC used in studios around the world. These sounds, pads, textures and effects have been heard on countless GRAMMY-winning albums and millions of recordings since the 1970s. SampleMoog™ Mobile Edition features instruments that were painstakingly sampled for precise and faithful sound reproduction of the world's most popular Moog vintage and modern synthesizers. These sounds have a texture, warmth, and beauty that is considered "the anthology of Moog synths" and unrivalled in the virtual instrument world.
The SampleMoog™ - Mobile Edition for SampleTank includes over 130 analog synth lead, pad, bass, sequence and effect sounds from classic Moog Music® instruments including the Minimoog® Model D, Memorymoog, Polymoog, Taurus®, Source, Rogue, Prodigy, Vocoder, Minimoog Voyager®, Little Phatty® and Etherwave® Theremin. These sounds are taken from the desktop version of SampleMoog™, IK Multimedia's leading Moog® virtual instrument.
SampleTank 1.7 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is a complete professional quality virtual instrument and sound workstation that allows musicians to use a portable keyboard/MIDI controller like iRig KEYS, or any MIDI keyboard controller with a MIDI interface like iRig MIDI or iRig PRO, to create and perform with studio quality instruments and sounds on the go. Musicians can even add more performance control with iRig BlueBoard, wireless MIDI pedalboard controller. SampleTank is both Inter-App Audio (new in iOS 7) and AudioBus compatible so it can be used as an instrument app with other compatible mobile recording and DAW applications like GarageBand, AmpliTube and VocaLive for creating music on the go, anytime and everywhere. SampleTank is compatible with iPhone 3GS or later, iPod touch 4G or later, and any iPad model.
