It is designed for professional live performance, song composition and puts a comprehensive array of world-class instruments, sounds and patterns right at your fingertips.
SampleTank 2 for iOS is 64-bit compatible and works with the latest iPad and iPhone models while supporting older 32-bit* iOS devices as well.

Choose from a comprehensive, expandable sound collection that covers virtually every acoustic and electronic sound imaginable.
