IK Multimedia (www.ikmultimedia.com) has announced the availability of SampleTank 4, the next generation of the sound and groove workstation. 

The new version boasts an expanded sample library (up to 8,000 sounds across 260 GB of samples) and a redesigned, scalable/zoomable interface. A new cutting-edge sound engine offers hard-disk streaming and advanced sound design/editing possibilities.

The library and sound engine are complemented by dynamic groove “players” (arpeggiator, strummer, pattern and loop player), 13 new effects (for a total of 70), a powerful new Mix window, a Live mode, and integration with IK’s iRig Keys I/O line.

Three versions are available: SampleTank 4 SE; SampleTank 4; and SampleTank 4 MAX.
