Gearslutz has been taking a close look at SampleTank 4, courtesy of expert reviewer and long-time contributor, Sound-Guy. He was so impressed that he gave the package a maximum 5-star score in all review categories together with the Gearslutz Gold award.
It's worth taking a closer look at some of his comments:
"New sounds include better pianos, new keyboards, guitars, bass, drums, strings, brass, synths, vocals, and percussion. Overall there is pretty much any class of sound you should ever need and all of them I auditioned are excellent."
"CPU use was surprisingly low – even playing the arppegiator along with a full rack of five FX never exceeded 4% on any one core, and six of my eight cores were basically flat-lined. Impressive efficiency!"
And the verdict was:
"A hell of a lot of sounds, especially the MAX version, with excellent editing and modulation flexibility. Relatively easy to use, and integrates well with any IKM sound libraries you already have."
Sound quality: 5 out of 5 stars
Ease of Use: 5 out of 5 stars
