IK Multimedia Sample Tank Free

IK Multimedia Sample Tank Free is a full-featured version of commercial sample workstation – SampleTank 2.5, with limited, 500 MB sample library. It opens all SampleTank format sounds (so for example you can use the sounds from Sonik Synth 2, Sample Moog which were available on promotion for pretty much insane low price 🙂 ). It also imports Wav, Aiff, SDII, Akai S-1000/3000, SampleCell formats. I like that SampleTank is 16 part multitimbral so it’s easy to layer/mix different parts (also it’s possible to set all layers to Midi channel 1 and play them, as far as I remember Image-Line DirectWave couldn’t do it, which sucked a bit). The built-in DSP effects sound nice and are low CPU hungry. These are the pros. And cons ? Hmm, it’s shame it doesn’t import SF2 or SFZ, also the product registration is too complicated and GUI seems too crowdy. But somehow, I’m starting to like it.
