With 250GB sounds, 70 studio quality effects and much more, SampleTank 4 is IK's biggest workstation release to date. Here's everything that's new.

SampleTank is one of the best-known sample-based workstation instruments in the business, and now IK Multimedia has announced SampleTank 4, redesigned from the ground up to be every musician's "go to" music creation workstation.

SampleTank 4 offers a massively expanded sample library (up to 8,000 sounds across 250 GB of samples) and a completely redesigned, scalable/zoomable interface. A new cutting-edge sound engine offers efficient hard-disk streaming and advanced sound design/editing possibilities.

The library and sound engine are complemented by innovative dynamic groove "players" (arpeggiator, strummer, pattern and loop player), 13 new effects (for a total of 70), a powerful new Mix window, a unique Live mode and powerful integration with IK's iRig Keys I/O line.

Three versions are available: SampleTank 4 SE; SampleTank 4; and SampleTank 4 MAX.
