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 and works with the latest iPad and iPhone models while supporting older 32-bit* iOS devices as well.

Choose from a comprehensive, expandable sound collection that covers virtually every acoustic 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, offering 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.

    I just needed a few simple sounds to use with my guitar synthesizer. They offer a package that is supposed to include all instrument sounds. It doesn't. So far, I've purchased three libraries. I've spent $60 to get a few decent sounds. They include so much junk/loops/fluff.

    From not so hot to worse. The folks at ST think that ipad users are not worth update compatibility have blundered big time. Cheesy sounds too.

    My version no longer works! The product and upgrades I paid for no longer function with this upgrade! Not a good move to release a new version not keep the older version available. The solution is to buy a new iPad? I don't think so!

    I have it installed. I have used it. Now it won't update as iTunes now thinks it is not compatible with my iPad 2. It worked fine before. What did you do to ruin the compatibility? That is a pretty brainless error.
  • Questionable quality. Crushes too often!

    The app has a very good potential. I bought almost all upgrades spending over $100 and it has lots of instruments and loops. I like it, but there are two problems. First, it crashes too often, especially when you switch instruments. Second, I am not sure in the sound quality. By my ear it does not sounds as good as Garageband and some other music apps I own. So it is ok , but not very good. Need lots of improvement. The good thing is that it has now MIDI export, so I can import loops into Logic.
  • Not worth for what I pay

    You should consider that everybody is working on an IpadAir2 ..... My IPad suddenly took it upon itself to update itself with no approval from me and now the version you updated for newer IPads does not work for me..I am missing purchased instruments and volume is non existent and keyboards do not change from maxi to mini... I paid good money for this formally great app and should be able to continue to use it despite your improvements otherwise you have stolen my money You should make good by at least having the older version still available ....Please place that up on your website and notify us lowly older iPad users so we who have no funds for a newer iPad should not be prevented from using your app.
