Your ultimate sound and groove workstation,
Explore a world of sounds on your iPhone/iPod touch with hundreds of professional-quality instruments, grooves and patterns
Got an idea? Grab your iPhone! SampleTank is the revolutionary mobile 4-part multitimbral sound and groove workstation that puts hundreds of high quality sampled instruments and patterns in your pocket.
Based on IK’s industry standard software for Mac and PC, its sounds provide an unmatched level of realism and sonic variety that can be easily accessed, layered and used for playing live anytime and everywhere.
And thanks to its built-in 4-track MIDI recorder, you can record high-quality melodies, riffs, grooves and even complete songs while on the go.
Coupled with one of IK’s iOS keyboards, MIDI interfaces or other MIDI-compatible devices, SampleTank for iPhone/iPod touch becomes a killer ultra-portable mobile setup that lets you make professional-quality music anywhere your mobile life takes you.
A world of sounds in your pocket
The reason SampleTank has become an industry standard workstation is because of the sheer quality and quantity of its sounds. The mobile version gives you an astounding 17 instrument categories with over 600 instruments.
SampleTank’s sounds have been meticulously sampled, edited, programmed and optimized in-house by IK's team of audio engineers and sound designers. It represents years of work in which IK has tracked down and handpicked timeless pianos, priceless vintage guitars, hard-to-find basses, must-have synthesizers and classic organs for a collection that’s set an unsurpassed sonic benchmark on the iOS platform.
Each sound category includes MIDI patterns and grooves that you can use to start playing immediately. There are over 1,000 patterns and grooves to choose from, which means there’s plenty of room for you to mix and match for wildly creative results straight from the start.
Expand your creativity
Plus SampleTank is also expandable: You can add to its sound library via a variety of additional high-quality sounds that are available for in-app purchase. There’s Sonik Synth™ – Mobile Edition, a collection of 300 instruments of all types that have been re-voiced from the popular Sonik Synth™ 2 virtual instrument. Then there’s SampleMoog™ – Mobile Edition, a grouping of over 100 analog synthesizer instruments pulled from some of the most classic and coveted Moog gear of all time. Or check out The Grid, a collection of cutting-edge electronic percussion sounds for beatmakers that covers everything from dubstep to techno, hip-hop to deep house and beyond.
Looking for something less electronic? Try Miroslav Philharmonik™ – Mobile Edition, a massive library of orchestral sounds recorded from legendary sampling sessions with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra at Dvorak Hall in Prague.
Flexibility when you need it
Beyond its generous sound library, SampleTank has also achieved an industry standard reputation due to its equally large and flexible feature set.
Its powerful EDIT page gives you many ways to fine-tune your sound, it lets you easily alter things like panning, transposition, attack, filter and everything else you’ve come to expect from a full-featured sound workstation. Save your favorite settings for easy recall via SampleTank's 96 user presets.
Play your sounds via the KEYS page, which gives you a dual-row keyboard that can be customized as a "scale keyboard," displaying only the notes of a specific key or scale. Or check out its drum machine-style PADS interface, a groove-making powerhouse that lets you load in instruments and sounds to create hard-hitting next level beats while on the move.
Use its 4-track MIDI recorder to create sketches or even make complete songs. It lets you quickly build up a complete MIDI arrangement with its handy quantize and loop controls. You can then even export your tracks as stereo audio files to mobile apps like AmpliTube and VocaLive or computer DAWs like Logic and Pro Tools.
In all cases you'll enjoy lighting-fast load times, near-zero latency, tons of built-in effects (with a great sounding master reverb), the ability to layer 4 parts simultaneously and much, much more.
Plug and play
With SampleTank, you're in complete control. And while you can use the onboard touchscreen keyboard and drum pads to play your sounds, the real fun starts when you explore IK's world of external input options.
Want versatility? Use an iRig MIDI 2 interface to connect any MIDI-compatible keyboard or external controller.
Want to get creative? Plug in iRig Pads, and you'll be able to take advantage of its 16 pads and fully customizable knobs, buttons and sliders to turn SampleTank into a beatmaker’s dream rig.
SampleTank is also compatible with Audiobus in iOS 7 and above. That means you can launch it from inside the Audiobus app (a third-party app that requires separate purchase) and send its output through other audio apps — like AmpliTube, GarageBand and many others — to be filtered, recorded, looped and more. The ability to share audio between apps opens up the potential for incredibly creative possibilities.
SampleTank also supports background audio, which means it can play in the background when other audio apps are playing in the foreground. This allows for even more layering opportunities and the potential for extremely unique audio combinations.
