The IK Multimedia SampleTank 2 SE Sample Workstation and Plug In Sound Module utilizes the full SampleTank 2 engine and is extremely easy to use. The main difference between the MF edition and the regular version is the MF edition does not allow the user to import or bring in any additional sounds. It is closed to the sounds it comes with.
The SampleTank 2 MF Edition has 100 sounds with 250 MB of samples and has a wide assortment of sound effects to create professional music tracks. The sound content includes a great assortment of virtual instruments including guitar, bass, pianos, synths, organs, drums, percussion, brass, and woodwinds. Some of the outstanding SampleTank 2 features included in the MF Edition SE are:
Enhanced Stretch engine
The Stretch (SampleTank Time Re-synthesis Technology) synth engine allows more creative flexibility with a wider variety of samples. There are now two Stretch algorithms, Note and Phrase. These two separate Stretch modes make it possible to apply the Stretch synth engine to a wider variety of sounds.
The Note Stretch mode is used for single note instruments such as vocals, organs, flutes, and other pitched instruments that are played traditionally on a keyboard.
The Phrase Stretch mode is used for looped or phrase based instruments. This mode is better suited for sounds that have changes in pitch and rhythmic patterns within an individual note.
In addition to the two Stretch modes, a Harm Pres (harmonic preservation grade) control has been added to the Stretch engine. This control works in both NOTE and Phrase modes. This feature allows you to control the preservation of the harmonic overtones of a sound when using Stretch. This makes it possible to fine tune Stretch for different types of instruments, such as vocals or a tone-wheel organ.
The Pitch-Shift/Time-Stretch function allows you to sync any loop to the sequencer tempo and to sync various loops together with a single click! Slow the tempo of loops down to zero without affecting the pitch or change the pitch of your loop in real time without changing its tempo. Play synchronized loop phrases with chords and run them through filters and effects for the first time in a virtual instrument. And now with grain control, there is even more flexibility with a wider range of loops and musical phrases. Only SampleTank 2 allows you to use loops as an instrument with unlimited expression.
The GRAIN control changes the grain-size" that the PSTS engine assigns to the audio. This makes the engine much more effective when working with different types of samples. Higher values make the algorithm more suitable to rhythmic material lower values make it more suitable to continuous sounds. The range is from 20 Hz to 800 Hz.
Now available as a stand-alone application
SampleTank can be used as a stand-alone application. No need to launch your sequencer, if you just want to load SampleTank and play. Just open SampleTank and load your favorite preset!
Stand-alone mode contains all the features of the SampleTank 2 plug-in. So, now you can take all the power of SampleTank with you in a stand-alone application, making it an easy solution for playing your favorite sounds live with no worries about bogging down your computer with a sequencer and plug-in setup. The stand-alone mode can also be useful if you use a second computer for virtual instruments, as each PART can be triggered from an individual midi input and then routed to its own separate stereo output.
Complex 16 part splits and layers
You can create complex splits and layers with the new Range Controls by changing each Part's key range and velocity. This makes it easy to create complex Combination Presets with splits and layers, using up to 16 instrument!
The Range Section allows you to limit and change the key and velocity range and transpose Parts by semitones. These settings are saved when saving a Combination Preset or when the sequencer session that SampleTank 2 is being used in is saved.
With the use of 4 controls: Range R, Range L, Vel Lo and Vel Hi, you can easily create both splits and layers across 16 different zones. Now complex performance setups are simpler to create and adjust than ever before.
Syncale LROs, 16 assignable stereo outputs
Editing features have been expanded with SampleTank 2. Some of these features include syncable LFOs, semi-tone transposition, and zone level pan control, just to name a few. SampleTank 2 allows full and easy access to more than 50 synth engine parameters.
Both LFOs can be BPM synced to the host BPM. So, now creating synchronized filter sweeps, vibrato, and other LFO effects is easier than ever.
Transpose now offers adjustment of the pitch of an instrument by semitone increments. So quickly changing from a difficult key is as simple as turning a knob. You can now control the panning of individual zones, so setting up a custom drum map is easier than ever.
