This brings the total to over 19,000 sounds at 43GB of samples.

The Total Workstation 2 Instruments Bundle is the entire collection of all 5 IK "Powered by SampleTank" virtual instrument plug-ins in one box. This unique software instrument collection offers everything needed to compose and arrange music in all styles and genres. From the complete selection of acoustic, electric and electronic instruments of SampleTank to all types of synths, pads and leads included in Sonik Synth, from the masterpiece orchestral and choir collection of Miroslav Philharmonik to the classic analog sounds of SampleMoog and the vintage keyboards of SampleTron, all of your song-writing needs are fulfilled in this one package.

Drums, pianos, keyboards, synths, strings, pads, basses, guitars, leads, percussion, ethnic sounds, brass, woodwinds, sound-effects, loops and more are all included, to give you a versatile and well-rounded collection of virtual instruments.
With over 14,000 sample-based sounds of the highest quality from every instrument category, regardless of what kind of music you make, this package will work for you.

Total Workstation 2 features a massive collection of world-class Acoustic Grand Pianos, Electric Pianos, Strings, Brass, Winds, Vocals, Organs, Percussion, Drums, Basses, Guitars, Synths, Loops, Ethnic samples and more. The Total Workstation 2 Instruments Bundle also includes the entire collection of one of the best sounding Orchestral sound sets ever made in the Miroslav Philharmonik library, a complete collection of extremely rare and sought-after vintage synths from Moog Music, and the insanely eclectic sounds of the vintage "tron" collection from SampleTron.

Since all of the Total Workstation 2 instruments are "Powered by SampleTank", each instrument's sound can also be loaded and used in SampleTank 2.5 XL's interface, where all sounds become instantly accessible, in one convenient location.

No other instrument bundle offers you this exclusive feature that has several key advantages: instruments can be mixed and matched to create entirely new, multi-layered sounds, effects can be shared, songs can be more easily composed and recalled, and this setup will lighten the CPU-load on your computer. If you've used these instruments in the past and you want to load them into their respective interfaces, you can do that, too.

The Total Workstation 2 Instruments Bundle offers unprecedented flexibility to create new sounds through the superior DSP effects available in each instrument.
Based on the award-winning SampleTank 2.5 effects section, these effects range in scope from high-quality reverbs (modeled on IK's Classik Studio Reverb), delays, and chorus-based effects, to EQs and compressors (based on T-RackS), and amp modeling gear (direct from AmpliTube). Plus, when sounds are loaded in SampleTank 2.5, there are three different routing possibilities: insert, send, and master. This much flexibility gives you total creative control over the sound, to create whatever is in your head.

Now that all of the instruments from these awesome libraries load into one easy-to-find location, combining sounds to create new sonic worlds has never been easier. To demonstrate this, IK has tapped star producers to begin creating combination presets that utilize all the instruments. Many are available straight out of the box, and we will be continually adding more from new artists to our website, available for registered users to download and enjoy, free of charge!

These presets will include offerings from high-profile producers such as Dark Child (Mary J. Blige, Britney Spears, J-Lo, Destiny's Child, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston), J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League (Young Jeezy, Mary J. Blige, Rick Ross, 2 Pistols), Bernie Worrell (Parliament-Funkadelic, Talking Heads, Bill Laswell, Gov't Mule), The Crystal Method, Wolfgang Gartner, Lenny Dee, George Acosta, Rabbit in the Moon, Scratch-D (Dynamix II), Dan Physics, and more.
