IK Multimedia has released version 3.3 of SampleTank, a major update to the sound and groove workstation.

The new 3.3 version turns SampleTank 3 into a great tool for beat and groove makers via its new plug-and-play compatibility with iRig Pads, IK’s ultra-portable MIDI groove controller. Its new “Pad” interface lets musicians quickly organize SampleTank 3’s 16 parts in a new matrix view quickly and efficiently for use with iRig Pads or any other 4×4 pad controller. In addition, users will now be able to enjoy broader MIDI support, streamlined loop management and more.

The latest version also comes with “The Grid”, the first add-on sound collection for SampleTank 3. A must have for beat makers and electronic music producers, it features 50 instruments and patterns that cover everything from hip-hop to dubstep to techno and beyond.

SampleTank 3 is available for purchase for $349.99 USD / 279.99 EUR. The version 3.3 update is free for SampleTank 3 users.
