IK Multimedia - SampleTron 2 - Review

The SampleTron 2 combines the powerful sound engine of IK’s award-winning SampleTank 4 with IK's industry-leading tape modeling technology to recreate the distinctive sounds of tape-based samplers from the ‘60s and ‘70s! They've even thrown in some of the later iterations of the quirky digital sample players and vocoders of that era.
This Virtual instrument 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.

If your curious as to whether or not you've ever heard an original Mellotron in action, some of the most notable songs created using the tron were:

  • Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles
  • Space Oddity - David Bowie
  • The Court Of The Crimson King - King Crimson
  • Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
