It seems that when ST4 is used as a plugin, all of the instrument parts in a single instance of ST4 are channeled through a single CPU core/thread. So it gets very CPU hungry very quickly as it is dependent on the clock speed of a single core.

Unfortunately, this single-core loading is going to be down to the DAW AFAIK. It is within Logic Pro X anyway, as all the DAW sees is 'plugin/bunch of data to be processed' irrespective of what the plugin actually is. What DAW do you use?

Please provide better the brightness / contrast of the text.
Regardless of monitor settings the text is VERZY hard to read.
Even in the 4.0.4 manual, the screen shots are dim and dark.

I wrote to tech support and got "There is no adjustment for contrast/brightness within SampleTank 4 Please adjust the brightness/contrast on your monitor."

A bit disappointing - SampleTank3 had good adjustable color contrast!

Simple request, a way that we can share multi's among ourselves. Lets say I have made a perfect, vocal piano multi for 10ccs Im not in love, and would like to share it to others in this forum who also have Sampletank 4 Max. It would be nice to be able to import the multi's and not have to recreate them. Or is this already in there and I have had too many drinks?

read through all, the following have not been cited [afaict]:

- a better selection lighting scheme for libraries so that it's obvious which ones are active.

- the top left buttons [for mixer, etc] moved down with bottom left buttons [for edit, fx...] so that all are on one line. i find accessing these tedious and counter-productive.

- shift-scroll is smooth in ST3, ST4 needs this implemented.

- an easier, more obvious way to access instruments/channels in edit mode. the current scrollbar is somewhat hidden.

- in mixer mode, the ability to go to library if the instrument icon is selected.

A clean mode for the Black LP in Sampletank 4 that doesn't sound like the gain is really high and for some reason I can't get rid of it. I'd love a LP guitar that I can combine with Amplitube (Particularly Mesa/Boogie) that doesn't sound so overgained.

In ST3 when searching for patches.... any patches with Velocity Switches have the Prefix "VS". ST4 does not. Can this please be reinstated?

Note: In ST4, if your search field contains "VS " only, then the list will be restricted to patches that indeed have Velocity Switches - you just don't see the VS prefix in the patch name.

In ST4, when the keyboard at the bottom of the GUI is visible and you load a patch that has keyswitches, pressing the a keyswitch note does not show a second little keyboard showing the names of the different articulations. ST3 did. Can this be reinstated for ST4?

I've recently installed ST4 and all is well so far.

My true deception is that all presets from my legacy products appear as "SampleTank 2" stuff. No more SampleMoog, SampleTron,Sonic Synth, Miroslav 1 sub folders like into ST3. So, every Sampletron preset, for example, is lost in an sea of legacy patches with cryptic names. As I own every instruments from previous generations, this is somewhat of a total mess.

For the sake of organization, would it be possible to allow the database to keep in account the same folder organization as it is in ST3? Also, there are redundancies as well between "ST3 Imported" and "ST3" folders which both contain an "Imported" links leading to the same place, thus doubling the size of database, I suppose.

My 2 cents.
