SampleTron 2 for iPad comes with a vast library of over 400 “tracks” that you can load into any preset—up to 3 at once—and then individually process with IK’s cutting-edge tape modeling DSP for ultimate tone-shaping flexibility.

While an extensive collection of new, original samples of vintage Mellotron and Chamberlin are included, SampleTron 2 for iPad also shines where it processes our non-Tron material. Here you’ll gain access to exciting new sounds with the choir, strings, brass, organ, piano, bass, and even synths and vocoders that all come included.

Authentic sound and vibe

In addition to sounding better than ever, SampleTron 2 for iPad looks the part with a gorgeous interface that’s true to the original instruments, remaining simple and intuitive to use. All 11 models are gloriously detailed and designed to give you the immersive experience of using actual vintage gear right on your iPad, even to the point of exposing their inner workings, all while maintaining uniform ease of use and functionality across the board.

Make it your Tron

All controls are intuitive to use with old-school looks on top of some ground-breaking engineering. Like the original Mellotron hardware, there are three available tracks for each preset. You can load any of the included tracks without having to fudge the track selector to combine them.

In addition to the included library, the ‘Tron characteristics can be applied to any sound. Your own samples can now be easily loaded and mapped to take full advantage of the tape processing sound using IK’s industry-leading tape modeling technology. A panel of global controls along with six tape controls let you dial in exactly the right mood.

You’ll also find additional synthesizer-style controls including a filter with selectable type and an amplitude envelope with velocity control for each track individually or all tracks combined. With SampleTron 2 for iPad, you can truly invent your own Tron sound anywhere.
