Do not make the mistake of buying libraries in the demo version, when you upgrade to the full version you will have to buy them again, a complete theft, and if you contact the customer service. they tell you to report in the apple store, do not lose your money.

This version (2.0.9) works pretty well, I have no real complaints about its function, although AU3 would be a nice addition. My primary concern is about the pop-up window that comes up at launch (which covers the top 1/3 of the screen) that tries to get you to in-app purchase the Miroslav Symphony Pack... it interferes with an Audiobus set-up until you go back into SampleTank and close the pop-up. Also, and this is an important point, if you don't touch the tiny little "x" just right SampleTank tries to execute the purchase. I accidentally had my finger on my touch-ID home button and ended up buying the pack for $30! (I got a refund...) That's just crazy... either that's very poor interface design, or it's an aggressive attempt to force a purchase. BEWARE!

I am pleased with the samples in this app there very good. But they keep having an ad for their new product popping up and it is hard to get rid of you press the X and it goes to the website for their new app. After about 3 or 4 times of pressing on the X it finally stops going to their website. I paid to much for this app to have an add pop up. I will never buy anymore of there products if there going to continue to bombard me with new product ads.

Shame on IK Multimedia. This is not the experience I should have after spending as much money as I did on this iOS software. Now I’m going to go and find the receipt of my purchase and contact Apple for my money back. Unbelievable!!!!

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.

Get with it, IK! No ones gonna buy anything unless it can be loaded as AU. I have a few sound packs, but I’m gonna hold off buying more till the app is updated. In response to dev: I think you’re blowing smoke. I heard that you were “looking into” updating to AU back in August. It’s now December, and still no solid commitment. Most of the iOS music community will agree with me on this: if it ain’t AU, I’m simply not going to buy it.

I purchased SampleTank based on reviews and YouTube video demonstrations. However, after installing and purchasing the full default instrument set;I am disappointed with the quality of all the samples i've heard in this app. In a word, unrefined. The audio noob may not detect the difference, but the well-seasoned musician will hear it immediately. There is a lot of noise in these samples; meaning the actual true sound has not been well-isolated in the recording method. *iOS music creators are looking for instrument samples and patches of extraordinary quality and uniqueness. While SampleTank has a lot of different functions, unfortunately (in my opinion) it does none of them well. I would advise the developer to greatly increase the sample quality and usability of the app. SampleTank competes directly with GarageBand and Korg Gadget. That is a daunting task indeed, for both of those softwares have nailed the sound quality aspect. Garbage in / Garbage out.

You touch any controls including volume, pan, transpose and any of the knobs above the keyboard and it instantly crashes.

This was my favorite app. I used it in live looping performances. But the changed a sustain function from the original app and the interface a couple of times. As a musician this is like Changing the keys on a piano. We practice using our equipment for a reason. App updated before a performance. Arrrrrrrrggggg!!!!!!!!😡😡😡😡😡
