Analog tape-based sampling reborn 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.

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.
