IK Multimedia has announced the release of SampleTank 3 Free, a free version of the sound and groove workstation instrument for Windows and Mac.
Now you can experience the full creative power of SampleTank 3 for free via a selection of high-quality instruments that illustrate its completely redesigned user interface, 64-bit compatibility, 55 high-quality effects, new loop and groove management tools, enhanced sample engine and broad-reaching sonic versatility.

And you’ll also have infinite sound sculpting possibilities thanks to SampleTank 3’s immense studio FX collection: Now you’re covered for literally all the acoustic piano sounds your productions could ever call for.
