SampleTron 2.0.3 Released

The FREE update adds 20 new presets and native Apple M1 compatibility

A new update for all SampleTron 2 users is now available, adding 20 new presets and updates to enhance everyone's workflow.

The Lost String Quartet

This FREE collection is something you won't find anywhere else. It includes 4 new solo string instruments: Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, and Cello, recorded to tape many years ago by Erik Norlander and recently rediscovered inside a storage vault. Together in SampleTron 2, they add 20 presets and 30 MB of sample content to explore.

All 4 string instruments have a dramatic and sweeping vibrato that complements perfectly all of the classic Mellotron samples already inside SampleTron 2. They'll quickly become some of your favorites.

Native Apple M1

IK is pleased to announce that version v2.0.3 of SampleTron 2 for Mac/PC brings native compatibility with Apple M1 processors to IK's popular collection of vintage and tape-based samplers. As a result, Total Studio 3.5 MAX is one step closer to full native compatibility.

We recommend that all SampleTron 2 users update to v2.0.3 (Mac/PC) or v1.1.1 (iOS) respectively.
