SampleTron 2 combines the powerful sound engine of IK’s award-winning SampleTank 4 with IK’s industry-leading tape modeling technology to recreate the distinctive, ultra-vibey sounds of tape-based samplers from the ‘60s and ‘70s, along with quirky early digital sample players and vocoders. This comprehensive collection features deep sampling of vintage Mellotron® and Chamberlin tapes, a collection of new acoustic “non-Tron” sounds with tape processing, and now enables you to load your own samples and create modern audiophile Tron sounds that are uniquely yours.

From gothic to gritty
SampleTron 2 comes with a vast library of over 400 “tracks” that you can load into any preset – up to 3 at once – and then individually process with IK’s cutting-edge tape modeling DSP for ultimate tone-shaping flexibility. While an extensive collection of new, original samples of vintage Mellotron and Chamberlin are included, SampleTron 2 also shines where it processes our non-Tron material. Here you’ll gain access to exciting new sounds with the choir, strings, brass, organ, piano, bass, and even synths and vocoders that all come with SampleTron 2.
SampleTron 2 Instruments
In SampleTron 2, the “skin” of the instrument automatically changes based on the sound you load into Track A. For modern, “non-Tron” samples, you’ll find the classic white M400 as the default interface. In all, there are ten different interfaces, inspired by the original vintage instruments: M1, MkII, M300, M400, M400S, Novatron, Optigan, Orchestron, 360, VP330, and Modern.
