IK Multimedia has announced the release of SampleTank 2 for iPhone and iPad, a major update to the flagship virtual instrument for mobile musicians.

With SampleTank 2, iOS users now have the power of desktop virtual instruments – without compromise – with a massive number of over 1,900 high-quality instruments and the most advanced sound and groove workstation for the mobile platform.

SampleTank 2 for iOS is a sample-based virtual instrument that allows users to have at their fingertips thousands of sounds from multiple categories of acoustic, electric and electronic instruments – all on their iPad or iPhone. To start, players can load up to 8 simultaneous parts from a selection of 140 included instruments in 16 categories, including: piano, drums, bass, guitar, strings, keyboards, synths, organs and more. These instruments can be played in a live setting or when composing with the device interface or an external keyboard or pads controller. The new SampleTank 2 sound engine is exactly the same as its Mac/PC software counterpart, offering astonishing realism and audio quality, thanks to the increased CPU power and memory of the latest generations of iPhones and iPads.
