i'm w/ you on not thinking i'd be into using loops. just seems a bit too prebuilt, unless sampling a loop from a song... know i'm going for strings & voices, not sure what else.

Any ideas?
If your not a loop user I would not recommend loops . I got in to this as I was contemplating a cheap rompler for live stuff , but I think a cheap netbook and this (+ more ram of couse ) will out do a mm6 or juno-di and cheaper too . Back to the point at hand ... no one can ever have too many drum and string libraries can they ?

You have to go to the user area and then to "promotions" to activate the deal then to "sounds" to select and download .

Acoustic Drums
Electronic Drums
OB Xpander
Arp pack
Strings
Cinema
Piano
Downtemp loops

All pretty decent - though the cinema pack is much less useful than I anticipated and I'm not a loop user at all ,so I don't know how much I'll use the downtempo pack but the drum loops sound up my ally so what the h**l right .

so far i've gone for:

bass
cinematik
piano
symphony
vocal
world

any of you using a mac? the sounds installer app runs fine but hitting relist isn't bringing any of these into sampletank for me. grr. also can't find the "sampletank 2 instruments folder" it says it's copying them to... i do have sampletank installed correctly, 2.5.4...

damn thing's not finding its stock instruments either, WTF. :evil:
have tried uninstalling & reinstalling it, no luck.

Yes I'm on 10.6.2 ... no issues here I run everthing in my adminastrator account if that makes a diff ?

The sample location should be : HD / Library / Aplication support / IK Multimedia / Instruments or at least thats were I they went by defult . The Prefrance link under relist will allow you to change that of course to were ever you want .
Perhalps Change that even if it is correct then relist ?

If that dosen't work and you are installing then to a user account then maybe a permissions repair could be in order ?
- Just a guess though so grain of salt and all that .

you sir, are the s**t. thanks! for some reason when searching my HD for "ik multimedia" that folder within application support wasn't showing up. the apps copying the files were putting them in the IK folder but not the instruments folder within. including the original presets (which is pretty weird).

Happy to help .
Weird that it did that :?

I grabbed the instuments form an old now uncompatable Sample Tank 2 LE disc and draged them to the location and hit relist and presto that works too without an installer at all .

that may have had it confused somehow, had the LE version installed then installed the XT version over it (what the h**l difference is there, anyway?). get this, download version 2.5.4 of either off the IK site, both install 2.5.3. dumb.


the vocal ensemble has a preset named "beach boys 2 men." :lol:

Regarding the loop packs: how much can the loops be manipulated within the sampler? Is there any way to rearrange or alter them?

previewed a few of the loop packs debating going for one of those, they all sound pretty pathetic... if anyone's downloaded one i'm curious to hear what they think of it. maybe it's just their demos...
