Academic IK Multimedia SampleTron
The most complete collection of “Trons” ever

IK Multimedia SampleTron is a virtual instrument from IK Multimedia and Sonic Reality that combines the authentic recreation of “Tron” sounds such as Mellotrons, Chamberlins, and Optigans with the powerful SampleTank engine to take those nostalgic sounds into the new millenium. No other product allows you to manipulate, process and stretch such gritty, emotional and quirky lofi sounds like SampleTron. It’s a virtual instrument made for many styles from hip hop to electronic to classic rock and offers some of the most unique musically useful tones you can imagine.

From the nostalgic sounds used by The Beatles, Moody Blues, Genesis, Yes and other rock bands of the 60’s and 70’s to the modern production of artists like Kanye West, Smashing Pumpkins and Beck to new sonic creations now possible only with SampleTron, the sounds in this package are diverse, powerful and inspiring.

-4 “Tron” specific controls allow for fast and flexible creativity

The unique, easily recognizable, and instantly classic sound of the “Tron” instruments started with the Chamberlin keyboards in the 1950’s, and peaked with the Mellotron 400, in the 1970’s. This precursor to today’s samplers uses tapes to play back prerecorded sounds at the touch of the keys. They are large and easily broken, but have such a unique sound, it’s difficult not to love the nostalgic tone and instant ‘vintage’ gratification that comes from hearing one. Whether you know it or not, you’ve heard the sound of a Mellotron or one of its siblings. Just about every famous artist or band has used one in a song at one point or another. Possibly the most famous example of the “tron” sound can be heard in the opening bars of “Strawberry Fields Forever”. This is the classic “tron” flute that is still widely used by artists today. Mellotrons have been used in countless songs, and just about all genres, from ‘60s and ‘70s rock, to the hip-hop of today, this is an instrument that works with just about everything.

One of the amazing things about the “tron” instruments is that, although relatively few have been made, they still bear a large relevance in today’s music. In fact, they are in such high demand that the makers of the original Mellotrons, Streetly Music, began making them again in 2007 (although with some upgrades to ‘modernize’ them). Unfortunately for most of use, though, these hand-made keyboards are out of all but the most die-hard enthusiast’s price-range.

IK Multimedia SampleTron brings the “tron” sounds into the new millennium. Through careful sampling of some of the world’s best-kept (and, in some cases, worst-kept!) machines, IK Multimedia and Sonic Reality have been able to preserve a wide-ranging cross section of memorable tones. But this is only a piece of the magic. SampleTron harnesses the power of the SampleTank engine, which allows these instruments to be taken into sonic worlds even they have not seen, quickly and easily. Layer up to 16 instruments at the same time to create lush soundscapes, or create key-splits for easy playability of several instruments at the same time across the entire range of the keyboard. Affect these tones with up to four effects at the same time, selectable from a huge 32-effect library of killer delays, choruses, flangers, distortions, and reverbs, as well as completely synth-based effects such as FM and Am modulation, Lo-Fi, and Slicer. And, as if that wasn’t enough, harness the power of SampleTank’s synth engine, with three different sample types (Resampling, Pitch-Shift/Time-Stretch, and STRETCH), to truly twist and re-shape the sound into something never before heard!

IK Multimedia SampleTron truly is the modern successor to the “tron” family of instruments, and is a superb addition to every producer’s library. From hip-hop and RnB to electronica and filmscores, this instrument, based in history but improved with technology, will elevate every genre to the next level.
