IK Multimedia has just released Total Studio 3 MAX, a full software suite for music creation, and it’s a huge update in more ways than one. If you were thinking you just need one more instrument to finish that new song and make it shine, how about a palette of 14,600 instruments to sample?
Total Studio 3 MAX is a start to finish solution for music production, with tools for composing, producing, designing, mixing, mastering and playing. It’s a massive bundle and a lot to take in, so read on to see all it offers.
A sampling of the 14,600 instruments includes IK’s newest releases SampleTank 4 MAX, Hammond B-3X, and MODO DRUM, plus Syntronik Deluxe, MODO BASS and Miroslav Philharmonik 2. It’s packed with over 440GB of rich, authentic sounds spread over 124 products and 487 ultra-realistic effects and processors for everything from tone tweaking to sound design to mixing and mastering. Dozens of presets from VIP artist and engineer are included, which can be modified and saved as user presets.
Users also get AmpliTube 5 MAX, IK’s flagship guitar and bass tone studio with 14 brand and artist collections, all benefiting from IK’s latest breakthroughs in modeling technology. And if you’re looking to dive into mixing and mastering, T-RackS 5 MAX offers award-winning new modules like Sunset Sound Studio Reverb and the Tape Machine Collection, plus MixBox, ARC 3 and Lurssen Mastering Console.
If all this is a bit overkill for you, there are other options at lower price points with less features. Below are pricing and upgrade options. If you are a current IK user, you can always log in to your IK Product Manager and see what your choices are. The Product Manager has also been updated to automate the installation process and keep all products organized.
