Good sounds, but would be better with audio unit extension

This software and sound pack came with an irig keyboard I bought. I like a lot of the string and piano sounds. They’re clear and accurate. However, the experience has some problems. There’s a clunky recorder function in the upper right corner that never works quite right, and only highlights the fact that there isn’t audio units support to record more comfortably in a different DAW. Hopefully, this will be in a future update

Also, I don’t like the “nickel and dime” in app purchase model. It’s not offensive with nag screens, but I just want to play the instruments I have, not look at things I don’t want or need

Major Crash issue, someone help??

Hi, ive been using sampletank for months now. Ive invested alot of money into it you guys have awesome libraries that help me creatively take the next step and i couldn't be more thankful!

Recently i updated my Iphone 7. And after the newest update, Sampletank automatically crashes whenever i try and adjust the “attack and release & inst volume & pan etc” knobs. Ive tried uninstalling it, changing instrument packs. Restarting my phone etc... and no solution.

Ive sent 3 emails to your support team and its been a little over a week since i sent them and still have no reply.

Please, i expect to buy new things on sampletank very very soon. But i just cant until i know that this solution can be fixed!

This company is pretty terrible..synth is crippled

Very limited synth.
The hardware products are good and innovative ..but many come with cheap proprietary chords ..that are not easy to replace...why do this to your people?..maybe to make more money I guess?..but not cool..
The customer service is probably the worst I can think of..
no phone ..they will respond with , what seems like a Robot that is no help, very hard and frustrating to get any help...the software is just a trap to hook you into the pricey’s actually decent yes..but not worth it to deal with this company on any level..shame because it could be different and Ik could be awesome but , I don’t have much faith..rn

*Use caution or just don’t use there products ,many other options

*I will update if It gets better I have the Irig keys i/o , awesome
but the support and proprietary cords it uses are a real joke for a no good videos or text on how to assign functions .
