IK Multimedia has announced the release of Spaceport ’77, the first expansion library for the SampleTank 4 sound and groove workstation.

The collection was designed to give tracks some ’70s and ’80s sci-fi flavor, made using two keyboards whose names have always sounded suspiciously familiar to fans of a certain galaxy far, far away: the Oberheim OB-1 synthesizer and the Yamaha CP-30 electronic piano.

The expansion features over 3.9 GB of content with 100 new instruments created with sci-fi inspired analog keyboard sounds.

This interstellar analogue synth and electronic piano collection features sounds from the past, voiced to deliver atmospheric, otherworldly soundscapes, hard-hitting galactic bass tracks and wizard-like celestial leads. Meticulously deep samples of the iconic OB-1 and CP-30 offer classic sounds with true-to-original details to enhance the experience.

A great complement to both the modern synth sounds and classic electric piano sounds already in SampleTank 4’s library, this new expansion library adds 100 new instrument presets and 3.9 GB of samples, plus pre-programmed control macros and sound effects.

The library comes alongside a new SampleTank update.
