KEYS: "SampleTank 4 MAX is a magnificent achievement"

"Conceptually very well thought out, with an ample sound library like no other"

KEYS Magazine's expert reviewer Andreas Ecker has taken an in-depth look at IK's new sound and groove station, SampleTank 4 MAX , in their June 2019 issue and is very pleased with the results.

Here's his final verdict:
"SampleTank 4 MAX is a magnificent achievement, a very comprehensive collection of elaborately created, multisampled instruments with a sound quality of the highest contemporary standards.

It covers all popular genres from film music and gaming across all kinds of rock and pop music to dance and club applications which include inspiring beats, e-drums and a great selection of synthesizers.

Also pianists get their money's worth thanks to the number of included keyboard instruments that can be played with great feeling. At the same time, the choice of filters and effects has increased considerably.

Here the manufacturer capitalizes on their in-house emulations which have achieved great acclaim and deservedly so.

The usage is very well thought out and no unnnecessary learning hurdles stand in the way to achieving that very important first sense of success very quickly. In brief, SampleTank 4 MAX is a conceptually very well thought-out all-round sound generator with an ample sound library like no other."

+     massive content, over 8000 instruments
+    innumerable elaborately created multisampled instruments
+    Strummer, a pattern-player with extra options
+    high-quality filters and effects

Here are some quotes from the original review in German.

"Sample Tank 4 Max ist ohne Zweifel ein großartiges Werk, eine umfangreiche Sammlung aufwändig entwickelter Multisample-Instrumente, deren Klangqualität sich insgesamt zeitgemäß hohem Niveau abspielt.

Es werden alle gängigen Genres abgedeckt, von der Filmmusik und Spielevertonung über alle Gangarten des Rock und Pop bis zu Dance- und Club-Anwendungen, die mit inspirierenden Beats, E-Drums und zahlreichen Synthesizern versorgt werden.

Auch Pianisten kommen dank mehrerer gefühlvoll spielbarer Tasteninstrumente auf ihre Kosten. Gleichzeitig wurde die Palette
der Filter und Effekte erweitert. Hier setzt der Hersteller auf hauseigene Emulationen, die zu Recht Anerkennung genießen.

Die Bedienung ist durchdacht und verstellt erste Erfolgserlebnisse nicht durch unnötige Lernhürden. Unterm Strich ist Sample Tank 4 Max ein konzeptionell gut durchdachter Allround-Klangerzeuger mit einer rekordverdächtig üppigen Library."
