SampleTank 4 CS

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

First you will need to run the IK Authorization Manager and put any new serial numbers in there to unlock the products.

Then SampleTank 4 allows multiple paths to content. I use two separate folder paths, one for my SampleTank 3 related content (ST3, Miroslav 2, Syntronik), and a second for any ST4 content. Put both paths in the SampleTank Sound Content in ST4 Settings. and click Rescan All.

Then you should see everything available and unlocked.

I will add that the ST3 related products can be used directly in ST4 without importing them. Just by adding the content path will do it, as the ST3 sample player engine is included within ST4.

It shouldn't be a hassle, sorry to those who are having issues.  For getting the popup, it should work by going directly to the IK User Area via the site menu or clicking http://www.ikmultimedia.com/userarea

The installation for those without any SampleTank 4 products should be as explained in the Installation & Authorization Manual.  If you've followed the steps of the installation of the software/plugin and the sound installer (1 file for sound install in this case of CS)  and you see the sounds locked or otherwise can't access them, our support team can take a look.

These are some really great sounds, don't let the (lack of) price tag fool you :)   So very much worth it,  We've heard some great feedback on the CS sounds that are free and these new libraries are really nice too.  I do have to spend some more time in the Synthwave lib though as I dig it but haven't dug deep as I'd like yet.

For existing ST4 users, I installed the CS set into an existing ST4 MAX installation with a custom set of paths and the sounds were available under the main SampleTank 4 MAX category (we didn't want to add yet another tile to the left pane or it could get crazy down the left pane).  You can find the list of new sounds for reference at the bottom of this page:  https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/st4cs/index.php?p=versions

Certainly something glitchy going on with the authorization of the sound content. The ST4 serials do not work and there are no other serials in my account. I created a help ticket.

I thought it was to good to be true when all my ST3 content and the earlier ST2 and Mirioslave stuff I had imported into ST 3 was added without any drama.

I'm sure IK Support can assist you with this in your ticket as it worked flawlessly for me on a non-IK machine (I'm remote anyway) into an existing MAX install with custom file locations and tons of imports.   If you are not seeing a SampleTank 4 CS serial in your account, please follow the steps above to see the popup in your IK User Area - you should see it when visiting http://www.ikmultimedia.com/userarea

Edit - though you shouldn't need to enter the ST4 CS serial at all if you already have a paid ST4 version.

I am trying to authorize the product but I can't use the sounds.

Launch the authorization manager (separate app) and enter your serial #.

I had the same problem and had to do a rescan of everything for it to work...

I'm beginning to think it's not worth it but will persevere - Vernon please let me know how you get on with support!

It is supposed to be authorized... I entered the same serial 10 times 😂

Edit: @cclarryDo you mean re-scanning the sounds within the app? That didn't work for me.

Now to cap it all I tried deleting the track then reinserting ST4 CS and doing a rescan - after a couple of instruments CbB crashed 🤬

These CS sounds installed flawlessly here on a non-IK machine with custom external (and multiple) sound library locations set.  Sounds loaded with no errors, too, wasn't just an install.  Sorry to hear some are having trouble, I'm sure the team can help you in those cases.

I've opened a new project - I think I've found my Miroslav etc sounds as it's scanning them - not expecting the ST4 CS sounds to work though.......

Also my install is on Windows 10, which I believe many here are running as well, so if you're on a similar setup (even with custom external and multiple library locations as well) I'm sure you'll be able to get up and running like I and many others are.  It can be frustrating if something isn't working for you, I know, but I have no doubt the team will get you going.

Yep found all my imported sounds etc but the ST4 CS sounds have gone again! Not that I could play them anyway!

Also, if anybody has the issue with the sounds that don't unlock, I'm told if you re-run the Authorization Manager with your CS serial again now it should resolve that for you now.
