IK Multimedia has announced the release of SampleTron 2 for iPad, combining the powerful sound engine of award-winning SampleTank with IK’s industry-leading tape modeling technology to recreate the distinctive, ultra-vibey sounds of tape-based samplers from the ’60s and ’70s, along with quirky early digital sample players and vocoders.

Ready for iOS 15 and designed to fit the form factor of the iPad screen, this comprehensive collection offers immediate support for all iPad model sizes and AU Host apps. The UI design is based on the desktop counterpart with a user-friendly approach that’s custom-tailored for mobile music production and performance on the iPad.
