Announcing the release of three exclusive new sound libraries for SampleTank 3 for Mac/PC: the Neil Peart Drums, Billy Cobham Drums and American Acoustic Guitar collections. Musicians and producers can now add the sound, style and soul of these legendary drummers and instruments into their recordings and productions.

Neil Peart Drums
A meticulously recorded drum collection that includes over 2,000 drum samples and more than 800 audio grooves played by the legendary drummer of the iconic Canadian Rock & Roll hall of fame inductee, Rush. There are 17 instruments grouped as “songs”, complete with grooves, fills and accents and each at its own tempo. Users can easily change the tempo of the audio grooves to match recording tempo without affecting the pitch of the drums using SampleTank’s intuitive STRETCH engine.

Billy Cobham Drums
From sessions with Miles Davis to the Mahavishnu Orchestra and beyond, the legendary Billy Cobham pioneered Jazz Fusion drumming. This new high definition drum and groove library includes more than 2 gigabytes of sounds and over 2,000 meticulously recorded samples, including more than 400 audio grooves played by the legendary drummer himself. Includes both the full kit instrument collection plus individual SampleTank instruments for his kick drums, snare drums, toms, hi-hats, ride cymbal and crash cymbals so users can customize the sounds, adding effects and perform individual instrument processing on each element using multiple parts in SampleTank.
Billy Cobham Drums also includes audio grooves played by the man himself in the style of many of his favorite songs from his classic albums. There are 14 SampleTank 3 instruments grouped as “songs”, each at its own tempo. And thanks to SampleTank 3’s STRETCH engine, you can easily change the tempo of the audio grooves without affecting the pitch of the drums.

American Acoustic Guitar
A comprehensive library of acoustic guitar sounds, with 90 instruments and 100 MIDI patterns that cover every method of playing from flatpicking and fingerstyle to strumming and beyond. Users can even add additional effects like slides and harmonics. Combine this versatility with its number of ensemble and experimental combo instruments, and you have a sound library that's a perfect fit for Pop, Rock, Folk, Country, Hip-Hop, R&B and even EDM. Now, no matter what genre, American Acoustic Guitar has great sounding acoustic guitars at the touch of a finger.

Perfect control
These new sound libraries have been designed to be experienced with IK's growing range of companion hardware controllers. The new Neil Peart Drums and Billy Cobham Drums are perfect for IK's iRig Pads groove production controller, while traditional keyboard players will find that the portability and universality of IK's iRig Keys or iRig Keys PRO can't be matched when it comes to playing American Acoustic Guitar while on the go, anytime and anywhere.

The Neil Peart Drums, Billy Cobham Drums and American Acoustic Guitar sound libraries for SampleTank 3 are available now via the IK online store and the SampleTank 3.5 Custom Shop for a special introductory price of just $/€79.99* each.
