Overview

SampleTank 2.1L is the ultimate sample-workstation. With an exclusive combination of features and sounds, SampleTank 2.1L stands apart from any other sample-based virtual instrument, as one of the most powerful and easy-to-use solutions for making fully produced songs out of the box.

The wide variety of sounds in all instrument categories are just one click away. You can immediately get tons of Acoustic Grand Pianos, Electric Pianos, Strings, Brass, Winds, Vocals, Orchestral sounds, Organs, Percussion, Drums, Basses, Guitars, Synths, Loops, Ethnic samples, and more. And now SampleTank has the ability to read all "Powered by SampleTank" instruments’ sounds, including Miroslav Philharmonik, Sonik Synth, SampleMoog, and SampleTron. This way you can work much faster and more creatively by having access to over a thousand of high-quality sounds from a single interface. If this is not enough, you can also import your own WAV, AIFF, AKAI, SDII and Samplecell files for a truly unlimited world of sounds.

3 advanced sample engines allow unique sound manipulation with multi-samples and loops. SampleTank 2.1 L is the only sample workstation that sports 3 different type of sample-engines: traditional resampling, STRETCH and PS/TS. The unique STRETCH engine will deliver amazing realism and expression over multisampled instruments. Your performances will come to life with true glide; bending; full control over staccato and vibrato, with an incredibly rich, vibrant, and natural sound quality (no more “chip-munk” effect). When working with loops, the PSTS engine (Pitch-shift/Time-stretch) will allow you to synchronize loops with one click, or control its tempo and pitch independently for the ultimate beat machine.

SampleTank 2.1 L is so easy to use that you do not need to read the manual. You’re up and going within seconds. More than 50 sampler controls are accessible from an easy-to-use and highly accessible single interface. That’s why you can spend more time focusing on your music instead of studying complex manuals written for engineers and not musicians. That’s also why you’ll find yourself loading up SampleTank as your ‘go-to’ instrument every time you want to let your creativity flow.

The SampleTank 2.1 L is so efficient and fast loading that you can easily install it in your laptop and use it as your mobile virtual workstation. It is so efficient that it can be easily installed and can run from even a modestly priced laptop. Sounds load up so fast that its performance is comparable to the one of hardware synths and samplers. That is why more and more musicians use SampleTank for their live performances. Try to do this with other complicated and heavy-load sample-based virtual instruments, and you can immediately see the difference!

The new SampleTank 2.1 L is an affordable introduction to SampleTank that includes 1 DVD and over 1,100 sounds.

Powerful sample-based virtual instrument
SampleTank 2.1 L launches sampling technology into new dimensions. For the first time in a sample-based instrument, 3 synth engines can be switched on the fly to provide more flexibility than ever before: traditional resampling, PS/TS (Pitch-Shift/Time-Stretch) and the new STRETCH engine give you total control over Tempo, Tune and Harmonics. STRETCH (SampleTank Time REsynthesis TeCHnology) delivers incredibly rich, vibrant, and natural quality instrument sounds with full-control of tempo, tune, and frequencies distribution to tailor tone and push sound design to the limits of your imagination. PS/TS allows you to sync multiple loops with one click and have independent control over their tempo and pitch for the ultimate beat machine.

Resampling
This is the traditional technology used in sampler and sample-based sound modules.

PS/TS (Pitch-Shift/Time-Stretch)
PS/TS has been designed to work with polyphonic material, such as ensemble instruments phrases, or percussive sounds such as drum loops and percussion grooves. Also with PS/TS tempo and pitch can be controlled independently ensuring the best possible quality for this type of material and the most flexible manipulation possibilities. Additionally, other applications are possible, such as multiple loops with different tempo can be easily synced together with one click or synced to the host's tempo.

STRETCH (Sampletank Time REsynthesis TeCHnology)
STRETCH has been designed for monophonic material (such as vocal, brass, winds, etc.), and provides full control over the tempo and tune of the samples, to give any music an incredibly rich, vibrant, and natural quality. STRETCH also expands sonic manipulation capabilities with full-control of an instrument's basic spectrum distribution to tailor its tonal characteristics and push sound design to the limits of imagination. Many natural instruments loose their realism when played by a sampler. The false sounding glide and bending in many traditional samples have been eliminated by STRETCH which delivers a new standard of musical realism, making virtual instruments more natural sounding than ever imagined (no more “chip-munk” effect). STRETCH gives more control over vital sound characteristics, delivers more realism than any other sample-based virtual instruments, and offers more tools to unleash creativity.

Unlimited world of sounds
SampleTank 2.1 L includes a huge variety of the highest quality in every possible instrument category, all superbly programmed by world-renown sound designers and ready-to-go. And if these are not enough, SampleTank 2.1 L allows you to import WAV, AIFF, SDII samples, AKAI S1000-3000 and SampleCell instruments, directly from the plug-in.

There are currently more than 14,000 native sounds available with the capability to read any instrument from "Powered by SampleTank" sound module range including Miroslav Philharmonik, Sonik Synth, SampleMoog, and SampleTron. It can also be expanded with any Xpansion Tank 2 sound packs.
