"Between the two main environments, song mode and live mode, you can really compose and perform live in front of an audience and make some pretty complex and involved grooves!"
"It’s when you pair up SampleTank with a MIDI controller that things really start to come alive."
"One of the best features of SampleTank is that it just comes with so… many… sounds."
"Be warned, once you start integrating SampleTank into your workflow, it’s maddeningly addictive and you’ll want to check out all the rest of the sounds. I picked up the Miroslav expansion immediately and haven’t looked back!"
