"One of the best bread-and-butter sound modules that money can buy"

15 October 2014

MusicRadar and Computer Music have reviewed SampleTank 3 and were impressed by the power and quality of its sample library, effects engine and all-round flexibility.

Here are some of their key comments:

"SampleTank 3's workflow transcends that of its predecessor. High points include ready access to the currently selected effects plugin from all pages via the FX button, and quick preset editing in the Macro control panel at the bottom of GUI."

"We really like the new instrument Edit page, with easy Part selection buttons always to hand on the right-hand side."

"The keyboard instruments are particularly great, offering an abundance of acoustic pianos, electric pianos and organs. Tuned percussion instruments like marimba and vibraphone sound rich and wide, and the orchestral strings, brass and woodwind come from IK's superb Miroslav Philharmonik package."

"ROMpler-generated guitars often sound weak but here the electric patches are remarkably convincing."

"As well as its instruments, SampleTank 3's loop library is surprisingly good, covering current electronic styles (hip-hop, EDM, dubstep and house) plus Latin and Cuban styles."

"SampleTank 3 has a lot going for it, succeeding in doing what some of the best hardware workstations do - enhancing a solid set of samples with just the right effects, thereby delivering ready-made patches that genuinely inspire".

The final conclusion is:

"One of the best bread-and-butter sound modules - hardware OR software - that money can buy. SampleTank 3 is big and beautiful."

+ Slick, ergonomic new interface
+ Vastly extended sample set
+ Excellent effects
+ Crossgrade for IK users

MusicRadar score 4/5 stars
