  • Very unclear

    By rennmusic
    This package is not as described. When a company like this offers you somthing that appears to be a combo of three separate softwares and then gives you limited versions I call it fraud. The description and price should reflect that the piano and rhodes are limited free versions and that Sample Tank itslef only has about 30% of the sounds one would expect when purchasing the full version. Its defintiely not a deal. Very dissapointed.
  • Changes in the interface

    By J. Greigh
    This was my favorite app. I used it in live looping performances. But the changed a sustain function from the original app and the interface a couple of times. As a musician this is like Changing the keys on a piano. We practice using our equipment for a reason. App updated before a performance. Arrrrrrrrggggg!!!!!!!!😡😡😡😡😡
  • Well it is a Great App! You may have to also...

    By Kareembyear1year
    Purchase an iRig product in order to get a serial number that will unlock a few other sounds, but you get a good value for the price once you understand how to work it. Turn your iPhone/iPad into a workstation! It's pretty cool! update 4-21-2017...wonderful app, but for some reason I always have to download Miroslav Philharmonic 2 whenever I've started the app. Why it uninstalls overnight is the question, because I have plenty of storage on my IPad Air and my IPad Pro. It has done the same thing on both of them.
  • Terrible update

    By Hdjaoqobrbbud
    Opened the app since the new update and everything is completely different. I've used the app A LOT and now I can't even figure out how to open up a drum pad
  • Update

    By MARVhp
    This app need to be updated to make full length songs using your own patterns and it need a step sequencer like fl studio your better off buying beat maker 2 to make real music......
  • Dissatisfied

    By BuckRogers7500
    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

    By Aaronw31818
    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 ( :
  • Disappointed

    By Critic313
    The upgrade seems that it has more to do sell expensive in app purchase sounds not listed here.
