IK Multimedia Announces SampleTank 3


IK Multimedia has been in touch to tell us that, over 10 years in the making, SampleTank 3 is finally coming in July. They say that, with 33 GB of sounds, over 4,000 instruments, over 2,000 MIDI files and 2,500 loops, SampleTank 3 sets the new standard in software sound workstation. It's been rebuilt from the ground up: it has a completely new sound set, fully redesigned easy-to-use interface, new effects derived from AmpliTube and T-RackS, a new patterns player with MIDI patterns, a new loop management feature, new filters, a new Live mode and much more.

A spokesperson told us, "Powerful, functional and effortless, SampleTank 3 is an essential tool for studio composition and live performance."
