    I spend several dollars $$$$ and this app is very unreliable. No even sure if will be replaced (after namm) soon and I’ll lose all my purchases
  • Looking for Keyboard sounds? This app is #1 by far!

    Before SampleTank I was using high end hardware Keyboard/Workstation/Synth/Samplers . Now with a basic $99 midi controller and this Application my life has changed. The sounds are fantastic, rivals all current keyboards on the market, and the expansions are phenomenal. If you are a keyboard player and looking for something to work with live or in studio out of the iPad this is where you need to start. There are similar apps, but most are one trick ponies compared to SampleTank. Sure there are great piano apps, synth apps, organ etc etc, this app covers it all and does it very very well. Create layers/Splits that are phenomenal sounding in any setting. SampleTank puts “Module” to shame on EVERY level. My reason for not giving the 5th star is because OS updates can sometimes cause major problems with functionality, not too long ago the app was unusable for about a month due to incompatibility with new updates from Apple. However once corrected the app is now better than ever. IK you have created an amazing product here, my only request is you keep it a little more up to date for those of us who depend on it. Keep the awesome work.
  • CATER TOO MUCH TO ELECTRONIC, DUBSTEP OR DANCE

    Another reason why I give this app one star is that you people cater more to dance, pop, rap but not enough to us rock and roll fans. Why can’t you guys create pwith classical, blues or metal rock? This would be such a huge plus. Just look at how many electronic sounds you have or synth. You people need to know that there are people out here who love rock so please l think about this.
  • thanks for the update

    works well. the sounds of the expansions are worth the price. when theyre half off $. the pianos offered are substandard. the drum demos wont play in the "shop" menu of the app. and there are no demos on your site to hear. this app has gone up and down in stability. its not cheap. for now its simply the only real multi timbral sampler option. the miraslov orchestra 2 is amazing. and when its half off, highly recommended and worth getting sampletank for, on its own. works incrediblywell in conjunction with isymphonic... the pianos in the miraslov, however, are the worst on the market. easily, the worst. everything else is top notch. don't buy it for the pianos. the stock sounds are average. you need to expand and have space to get its max potential. it'll cost you fifty bucks to do it right. if you know what an "eps16+" is you'll be right at home.
  • Fantastic Library!

    From guitars, to orchestras, pianos, synths, percussion, voices. Links nicely with Cubasis, both midi and audio, and Audiobus. Lots of patterns associated with the sounds. Finally, they fixed the ios 12 bugs.
  • Wanna like it.

    Trying to implement a mobile sketch studio using Cubasis and SampleTank. Trying to use SampleTank because it seems to have the best sounds for a basic orch template. But, like another review stated, the integration is a mess. Audio Units compatibility would be a dream. It’s useless as a real mobile DAW on it’s own. Wish ST could integrate like Kontakt does in full DAWs. Actually wish Kontakt had an iOS ver but... Saving the worse for last. I finally came up with a useable template utilizing “AudioBus” only to find that Cubasis mixer does not control ST and of course when I attempt to adjust channel vol in ST it crashes. Known, killer bug that is a over a month old with no fix available.
  • Disappointed Customer!

    It has been a little over a month since the iOS 12 update came out, and in that time period they have already offered two improvements to the operating system; yet IK Multimedia hasn’t offered any solutions to the glitches and app crashes that are occurring as a result of these updates, leaving customers who use this app frequently feeling disappointed.
  • Not working anymore

    This used to be my favorite synth app but now it keeps crashing any time you try and move any of the on screen controls so now it’s worthless, glad I’ve only been using the free version and didn’t waste money on adding additional sounds, there’s enough free soft synths out there so goodbye IK Multimedia.
