Get analog tape-based sampling with IK multimedia SampleTron 2.
SampleTron 2 combines the powerful sound engine of IK’s award-winning SampleTank 4 with their 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 over 400 “tracks” you can load into any preset—up to 3 at once—and then individually process with IK’s cutting-edge tape modeling DSP. While an extensive collection of new, original samples of vintage Mellotron and Chamberlin are included, SampleTron 2 also shines with new 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.
Authentic sound and vibe
In addition to sounding better than ever, SampleTron 2 looks the part with a gorgeous interface that’s true to the original instruments, remaining simple and intuitive to use. All ten models are gloriously detailed to give you the immersive experience of using actual vintage gear.
Make it your Tron
All controls are intuitive to use with old-school looks that belie some ground-breaking engineering. Like the original Mellotron hardware, there are three available tracks for each preset. Only now you don’t have to fudge the track selector to combine them. You can load any of the included tracks or your own samples with total control for mixing between all three to create your own combinations. A panel of global controls along with six tape controls let you dial in exactly the mood you’re looking for, with the precision and authenticity that only IK’s tape-modeling technology can deliver.
All the tools you need
When you want to fine-tune the sound further, SampleTron 2’s edit mode lets you dive deep into the preset parameters with controls for volume, pan, fine tune, transpose and high and low note range for each Track. You’ll also find additional synthesizer-style controls including a filter with selectable type and an amplitude envelope with velocity control for each track individually or all tracks combined. With SampleTron 2, you can truly invent your own Tron sound.
Effects like no other
SampleTron 2 includes a powerful set of effects to give each performance exactly the depth and dimension your music needs. Effects include a Channel Strip equalizer and compressor, Tape Echo, Multimod—with selectable chorus, ensemble, flanger, phaser, Uni-V and Rotary Speaker—and the new Vintage Plate Reverb that’s based on the Plate algorithm developed for AmpliTube 5 and MixBox. These are great-sounding effects that leverage IK’s expertise in the field, and we’ve chosen the ones that complement SampleTron 2 perfectly.
SampleTron 2 works as a standalone app or as a plug-in, and it can also be used as a library in SampleTank 4* to expand its world of sounds. There you can make deeper edits, add more effects and play multiple instances of the 3-track SampleTron 2 presets on multiple MIDI channels, all with the convenience and processing power of our popular song and groove workstation.
* Requires SampleTank 4.1.4 or later.
And in the end
