SampleTank 2 for iOS is a professional, fully featured mobile sound and groove workstation that brings the sound, power and features of desktop virtual instruments to your iPad and iPhone — without compromise. It is designed for professional live performance, song composition and puts a comprehensive array of world-class instruments, sounds and patterns right at your fingertips.

SampleTank 2 for iOS is 64-bit compatible with the latest iPad and iPhone models and supports older 32-bit* iOS devices as well.

SampleTank 2 gives you 8 multitimbral instrument slots that you can easily layer or split. Choose from a comprehensive, expandable sound collection that covers virtually every acoustic, electric and electronic sound imaginable. Plus, each instrument category includes instrument riffs and grooves so you can start composing and playing in no time.

The included instruments and the new sound engine are derived from the desktop version of SampleTank, IK's flagship workstation, in order to give you unmatched realism, variety of sound and audio performance. For the first time on iOS, thousands of professional sample-based sounds and patterns can be easily accessed, layered and used for playing live or in the studio. Now you can make music anywhere and anytime inspiration hits you.

SampleTank 2 comes with over 140 instruments and 1,000 patterns including pianos, electric pianos, synths, organs, drums, basses, guitars, strings, brass, woodwinds, voices, ethnic instruments, percussion and sound FX.

What’s more, three new signature instrument collections have been added to the ever growing library and are available via in-app purchase:

• Hugh Padgham Drums — Use the legendary "stone room" drum sound of producer/engineer Hugh Padgham on your next record.

• Brandenburg Piano — A warm classical grand built in Berlin, Germany, in 1958 with a deep, rich and unmistakable tone.

• Elektronica Chillout — Retro melodies, sun-drenched beats and sweet, tape-saturated musical loops.

In addition to these three new collections, you can also add in these signature instrument collections for ultimate mobile composition and sound production:
Miroslav Philharmonik 2, Orchestral Percussion, Cinematic Percussion, Alan Parsons Grand Piano, Future Synths, Elektronika - Deep House and much more!

This brings the total universe of SampleTank 2 for iOS sounds to over 2,300 instruments and over 1,200 MIDI patterns — the largest collection of sounds available for any virtual instrument for iOS.

Customer Reviews


Not investing anymore into the hype of SampleTank.

Spent $20 for the base app which was "okay" but far from inspiring. So, I spent another $40 to buy the ALL SOUND PACKS.

First- beware that you will still have sounds "greyed out" because when you buy All Sound Packs, you apparently aren't actually getting all of the sounds listed in the base app.

Second- be prepared to be under-whelmed by pretty bad samples that quite frankly...well, just don't sound like something that is worth $60.

The only thing I really am happy with is the interface. It is intuitive and user friendly.

Unfortunately, at this point (based on my experience with this app, and their guitar apps) It really seems like they try to reel you in, to get you to spend more $$$$ on in-app-purchases, only to be left feeling like you didn't get the "amazing sample library" you were sold.

If I could return it, I probably would.

Confusing purchase

So you can get the free sample tank and buy the 40 dollar sound pack? I just spent 20 on the paid version and now I have to spend 40 more to get all of the sounds that I could have gotten for 40 with the free app? This needs to be clarified.

Create own samples

Could it be made possible to create your own sampler instruments for sampletank ? Just thought of it ( :
