SampleTron offers the most diverse collection of Tron sounds ever released in one product. It has samples of 18 rare, vintage keyboard instruments such as Mellotrons, Optigans, Chamberlins and other related instruments. These Tron were ingenious keyboards made in the 60’s that were the predecessors of today’s samplers, with the capability of reproducing many natural sounds that were recorded on tapes or disks and activated by keys. Brought to you from the personal archives of Dave Kerzner, CEO of Sonic Reality, this unique virtual instrument includes rare sounds Dave has sampled with artists such as Crowded House, Smashing Pumpkins, Tom Waits and more.

SampleTron gives you more creative control over the sound than any other software vintage keyboard instrument. Combi instruments allow you to build extremely complex sound layering for powerful lo-fi orchestral soundscapes. SampleTron not only has traditional classic and progressive rock sounds such as the Strawberry Fields Forever flute and sounds used by the Moody Blues, Yes, and Genesis, but also includes unusual quirky sounds that today’s alternative, rock, hip-hop and film composers are in search of.

Studiophonik is a virtual instrument plug-in dedicated to reproducing the diverse sounds and instrumentation of full guitar, bass and drum bands recorded in high-end studios and includes a diverse collection of realistic instruments. It’s like having three plug-ins in one, putting a complete studio with the ultimate selection of top-of-the-line and collectible vintage guitars, basses and drums right at your fingertips. Studiophonik combines high-quality studio drum, bass and guitar instruments with powerful built-in modeled studio effects of the SampleTank engine to bring you a unique “virtual band” instrument like no other.

Studiophonik also gives you deeper control of pickups, microphones, performance nuances and mixing for the ultimate studio instrument expression. With more control over the sound, you can adjust ambient mics on drums, change pickups on guitars and basses in real-time and process them internally with vintage modeled compressors, EQ, limiters, guitar amps, phasers, flangers, delays, reverbs and more.
