SampleTank 2 is the ultimate sample workstation. For the first time in a sample-based instrument, 3 synth engines can be switched on the fly to provide more sound flexibility than ever before: traditional resampling (the conventional method of playback most samplers use), pitch-shift/time-stretch, and the innovative STRETCH engine.
(Sampletank Time REsynthesis TeCHnology) gives complete sonic control over the tempo, pitch, and harmonics of samples. No more "chipmunk sounding" transposition, no more loops and phrases out of sync, no more limitations in musical expression.
Multisamples like you've never heard before!
Multisampled instruments with STRETCH deliver amazing realism and expression. Your performances come to life with true glide, bending, staccato, and vibrato with an incredibly rich, vibrant, and natural quality. Plus, pushing STRETCH to the limit can take you to a whole new world of unheard sonic territories.
Loops become playable instruments!
The pitch-shift/time-stretch allows you to sync any loop to the sequencer tempo and sync various loops together with a single click! Slow loop tempos close to zero without affecting the pitch or have your loop tuned or singing by changing its pitch in real time without changing its tempo. Play loop phrases with chords in sync and run them through filters and effects for the first time in a virtual instrument. Only SampleTank 2 allows you to use loops as an instrument with unlimited expression.

All of this power is packed in a musician-friendly interface with everything you need right in front of you. Makes it easy to access more than 50 new synth-engine parameters including multi-mode filters, envelopes, LFOs, and more for your own patch creation.
