Cinematic & orchestral, acoustic & electronic
Total Studio 2 MAX contains 43 virtual instruments, almost 17,000 sounds and 179 GB of samples amongst which there are 7,000 acoustic instrument sounds to suit any musical style or genre as well as a stunning 3,000 orchestral sounds with articulation switching for incredible expressiveness. These put the sounds from the uniquely musical Miroslav Philharmonik 2 at composers' fingertips and give the tools for the perfect score. Miroslav Philharmonik's soul was first masterfully captured by the legendary Miroslav Vitous at the prestigious CNSO Studios in Prague, where the soundtracks for The Hateful Eight, The Young Pope, The Illusionist and many other blockbusters have been recorded.
To guarantee the ultimate ease of use, all sample-based sounds can be accessed, browsed and combined within the single SampleTank interface which allows for the creation of quick and easy multitimbral productions from Rock, Pop, Hip-Hop, EDM, Trap, Jazz, House and more, there is no limit to the style. The industry-standard SampleTank MAX, IK's complete sound and groove workstation, itself comprises 24 libraries, 4,600 instruments, 7,400 drums and loops and 3,500 MIDI patterns. These sounds are far from ordinary: they have been carefully assembled and recorded by IK's experienced recording engineers with high-quality instruments played by professional musicians in some of the world's finest studios. Most importantly, SampleTank 3's powerful editing and effects features make it possible to control every aspect of these sounds, which allows for an unparalleled creative sonic experience and satisfies the needs of even the most demanding music producers.
Furthermore, Total Studio 2 MAX adds the break-through physically modelled iconic instruments from MODO BASS into the bundle, incorporating the widest assortment of electric bass sounds for unmatched expressiveness. MODO BASS utilizes a completely new technology where sound is generated by recreating the physical properties of a real bass, no samples are used, and it recreates virtually every electric bass sound imaginable delivering an unprecedented realistic performance for any bass track.
In addition, Total Studio 2 MAX comprises over 4,000 electronic instrument sounds including hybrid sample and modelling synths. From the undeniably authentic sound of legendary synthesizers and string machines to the driving power of world-class effects, IK's Syntronik offers the definitive and best-sounding collection of vintage synthesizers in a virtual instrument. It includes 17 amazing instruments with over 2,000 preset sounds covering a wide selection from 38 of the most iconic to ultra-rare and painstakingly multi-sampled vintage synthesizers. Syntronik's synthesis engine goes well beyond traditional sampling thanks to a brand new analog modelled filter section created with the utmost expertise from IK. All of this coupled with exclusive DRIFT™ technology to accurately reproduce the behaviour of oscillators from real hardware synths makes it the ultimate source of inspiration with the widest palette of synthesizer sounds ranging from exact reproductions of the originals to sounds never heard before that will stand out from the crowd in productions covering any genre and style.
