27 May 2015

Now SampleTank 3 users have even more ways to expand their sonic universe. Introducing Alan Parsons Imperial Grand and Terry Bozzio Drums for SampleTank 3 Full and SE. No matter whether you're a musician or a producer, these libraries have been expertly recorded to inspire you to add something new to your music. Pump up your productions with new top instrument sounds with the magic touch from legendary producer-engineers and grooves from an iconic drummer.
Alan Parsons Imperial Grand
Alan Parsons Imperial Grand is a brand new instrument library for SampleTank 3 that puts the expressive sound of a massive 97-key concert grand piano recorded by master producer/engineer Alan Parsons at the prestigious British Grove Studios in London right at your fingertips. You get 1.3 GB of content with over 650 stereo samples (recorded at 8 different velocities) that have been captured by a signal chain similar to the one Alan used while working with The Beatles and Pink Floyd — AKG® C12 and Neumann® U67 valve microphones run through a classic EMI console, to be exact. Its power and depth is perfect for everything from prog rock to jazz and everything in between.

Terry Bozzio Drums

Terry Bozzio Drums gives you a huge 1.8 GB library of high-definition sounds with over 1,800 drum kit samples and 350 loops. Everything has been played by Terry Bozzio, the idiosyncratic drummer whose incendiary performances with Frank Zappa, UK, Jeff Beck and Missing Persons span 4 decades of classic album appearances.

Terry Bozzio Drums also includes 350 audio loops played by the man himself in the style of his favorite album cuts. All have been organized into 12 instruments. And because of ST3's S.T.R.E.T.C.H. engine, you can instantly change the tempo of these loops without altering the pitch.

Perfect control
These new sound libraries have been designed to be experienced with IK's growing range of companion hardware controllers. Terry Bozzio Drums is a perfect match for IK's iRig Pads groove production controller. And, naturally, Alan Parsons Imperial Grand pairs beautifully with IK's iRig Keys and iRig Keys PRO portable keyboards.
