SampleTekk CIN Keys

Posted May 18, 2015 by Per Larsson.

CIN Keys!

We decided to take look at sampled pianos in a new way! The goal was simple: Produce instruments that are truly unique, inspiring and great sounding, in a format that pretty much works on all platforms and all samplers and doesn't tax your system. Combined with a great price, we hope you will find this new series as fun to play on as they where to produce!

We have use some pretty nifty outboard stuff like vintage EQ's and compressors, resampled using different rooms, even used analog master 1/4 inch tape machines to achieve the result we're after.

New website

Posted October 3, 2014 by System Administrator.

Lo and behold, it's a new website!!!

SampleTekk has been around for years, and while we've had great instruments, our website has been, well, "butt ugly", has been one of the nicest remarks we have got....

So, when Chris Wall of Hypnoboutique contacted me and said that he could make things look soooo much better, of course I said yes. Chris has made a great job, and I'm sure that you will find this new site so much better! So, thank you so much Chris, and welcome to you all to our new site!

Please note that not all SampleTekk products are available just yet, we'll keep on adding on a daily basis, so please check out the site for added products and shorter specials as the are added!
