Producer Sphere, the dedicated site for all music producers and production gear has been taking an in-depth look at SampleTank 4 MAX, courtesy of senior writer, George MacDonald. He was blown away by its sound quality, the sheer numberof instrument sounds and its ease of use.
Here are some of his key comments:
"Despite the gigantic number of sounds included, it is immediately clear that a great amount of detail and perfectionism has gone into every instrument."
"When it comes down to volume and versatility, SampleTank 4 leaves everything else in the dust."
"Upon opening the software, you are met with a sleek, sophisticated design with a noticeably more modern, polished appearance than previous versions."
"The sound quality is phenomenal and each instrument gives an authentic playing experience. There is a huge amount of character and sonic variety in each sound, and exploring this huge library of instruments is an absolute joy."
"The effects rack displays the effects side-by-side in a gorgeous, innovative design. As you’d expect from IK Multimedia, the effects sound sublime, which makes sense as they are derived from AmpliTube and T-RackS software."
"I thought the Editor was worth mentioning as it is a feature IK fans have been requesting for a while. It is a brand new, innovative programming tool that can be used to create, edit and build SampleTank instruments and libraries."
George's verdict is:
"Overall, the amount of instruments in SampleTank 4 is an extraordinary feat, but it’s the sound quality and sampling detail that particularly took me by surprise. I would highly recommend this software to both beginners and advanced music producers."
