IK Multimedia Sampletank for iOS
IK Multimedia announces that SampleTank for iPhone/iPod touch is now available in the iTunes App store.
SampleTank is the first sample-based sound and groove module available for the iOS mobile platform. Keyboard players, producers and musicians will now have access to hundreds of acoustic, electric and electronic instruments, and programmed patterns from their iOS devices.
SampleTank can be played directly from the app or can be used live with a MIDI keyboard or pad controller with the recently released iRig MIDI interface adapter from IK Multimedia.
The sounds are derived from the desktop version of SampleTank. Furthermore, new instruments have been recorded especially for the new iOS app.
There are currently 400 sounds available in SampleTank with a selection of Pianos, Organs, Strings, Basses, Guitars, Drums, Synths, Woodwinds, Brass, Ethnic Instruments, Percussion and more accessible from a single app.
SampleTank also includes 900 pre-programmed patterns and groove sequences for every instrument category designed to be played - even by non-keyboard players - and combined for making music with just one touch. When it comes to grooves and drumbeats, SampleTank also offers a variety of drum kits and groove styles that spans various music genres from classic Blues, Rock, Soul to modern Hip-Hop, R&B, Techno, House and more.
Additionally, every SampleTank sound comes with pre-programmed built-in effects.
The SampleTank interface uses 3 main sections: Sounds, Edit, Play. On the Sounds page, the user can browse and audition the available sounds and patterns, which are organized in icon-based categories. Here users can play up to 4 simultaneous instruments and save or recall them using the built-in presets system. On the Edit page, instruments can be personalized through knobs for sound and effect parameter tweaking. The Play page offers a play environment with its double piano keyboard, scale-based keyboard or drum pads.

SampleTank for iPhone/iPod touch is now available on the iTunes App store at an introductory price of only $9.99/€7.99 with 72 instruments and hundreds of patterns included. A free version of SampleTank will also be available with 8 sounds plus their selection of patterns.
