Each Part can contain one instrument and up to MIDI Patterns, and each has its own 5 insert effect slots — now you have a quick way to modify your sounds individually. For more global effects, each part also contains 4 insert effect sends that let you easily send your sounds to effects that process multiple instruments simultaneously like delays and reverbs.
Parts are also flexible. Each Part can be assigned to any MIDI channel letting you layer, split and perform complex multi-timbral sequencing with ease. The Browser Finding sounds has never been easier.
SampleTank 3 features an easy-to-use streamlined browser. Use it to quickly find the sounds you need. Need help? Looking for something? For example, if you want a pad sound to fill out your electronic track type "atmospheric," and SampleTank 3 will present you with a tailored sound palette of Instruments and Multis.
Now you can get back to the more important business of finishing your song. With SampleTank 3, naming, saving and deleting your Multis or Instruments is easy. Just click on the menu icon in the bottom left. It features an overview of the 16 Parts in your selected Multi. For each Part, you can see the loaded Instrument along with easy-access controls for volume and pan.
Previous SampleTank users will find this panel very familiar! The Part Viewer is also where you select the Part to load an Instrument into or to access its Macro controls and insert effects in the control panel at the bottom.
Working with Patterns Want to get in the groove? You can load up to MIDI patterns per part with each conveniently organized on your keyboard starting from C0 with one pattern per note. A keyboard loaded with patterns is a potent creative tool. And should you need to take it further you can drag your edited Pattern straight into the DAW of your choice, and it will retain all of your carefully considered fine-tuning.
Once your patterns have been loaded where you want them, you can use the Global Play button at the bottom to start and stop all enabled Patterns simultaneously. Realistic playing with Articulation Different playing styles are what give real instruments their distinct character. SampleTank 3 gives you an unparalleled degree of dynamic expressiveness through its "round robin" feature and multiple articulations, both of which help you mimic the organic tonality of real instruments. Think of articulations as different playing styles.
SampleTank 3 lets you apply the same principle to a majority of its sounds. These articulations are easy to use and can be played in a variety of ways: assign them to a specific key, control them with the modulation wheel or simply cue them by playing different velocities.
This is particularly noticeable when it comes to acoustic instruments where subtle changes in technique — like finger plucking versus pick playing on a bass — make all the difference. SampleTank 3 handles the details — now you have a sound workstation that you can perform with on stage with confidence.
Layers, Splits and Multi-Timbral sequencing Mix, match and let your creativity run wild: SampleTank 3 makes it easy to use multiple instruments. Want to combine an Acoustic Bass with a Vibraphone?
Just do the same thing but use the Edit page to choose which keys trigger which instrument. Now you can play each Part as though it were its own sound module. SampleTank 3 gives you the power, flexibility and versatility to develop complex sounds and arrangements with an interface so effortless that even a non-musician can understand it. Now you can take your beatmaking and electronic music production to the next level; iRig Pads Full Integration lets you enjoy an entirely new and tactile "out-of-the-box" musical experience when using SampleTank 3.
The new "Pad" interface lets you plug in and immediately start playing SampleTank from your iRig Pads. Now you can quickly fine-tune the sounds you want: adjust the release of your pads, the key percussion of your organ, the volume of the kick in your drum kit and much more. As noted, these Macro controls vary from instrument to instrument.
For example, on a piano you can control its lid, its harp resonance and the amount of room reverb applied. Or, on a drum kit, you can adjust the volume of each individual drum and cymbal as well as the level of compression applied.
These Macros are there to make your life easier. Select the Part you want in the Part Viewer above, then simply click the effect slot to view, edit or bypass the loaded effects. For maximum ease you can even load new effects right from this panel. There are three kinds of Channels: Part Channels that contain SampleTank Instruments, Return Channels that are used for global-style effects like delay and reverb that can be used for several Instruments simultaneously and the Master Channel where you can perform all your final mastering processing.
Each Part can contain a single SampleTank Instrument with a channel strip that gives you mixing board style controls for volume, pan, mute and solo.
At the top of each channel strip are the 5 insert effects slots. The effect slots are serial: the first slot feeds the second slot, the second slot feeds the third slot and so on.
