« Decent all purpose VST sampler »Publié le 01/29/11 à 16:55
This software works well in FL Studio with no hiccups, however I have to run Ableton Live in administrator mode to get it to work, otherwise Ableton will display it as an unsupported vst. The bank of stock sounds that comes with Sampletank is very decent and is very good for acoustic instruments. The CPU load is pretty low too so there is no problems with stacking up sounds. The memory usage is also low for a VST of the nature that it is, it has hundreds upon hundreds of preset sounds in the library. There seems to be a problem with stability though, as this VST has crashed FL multiple times upon loading. I'm not sure if it is specific patches causing this or the VST itself.
I love some of the sounds on offer from this VST, especially the guitars and some of the strings. However the other acoustic sounds, most notably the pianos, on offer are extremely flat and dry. These sounds are designed for layering. I cannot seem to find a search function on the VST too, this makes finding patches previously used an absolute nightmare. I would still get this VST though knowing what I know now. Just a pre caution, make sure you know how to compress and EQ your sounds correctly before you purchase this VST.
