To see Total Studio 3 MAX in action:

The widest range of sounds in a single package

Total Studio 3 MAX packs a massive 14,600 instruments, including IK's newest releases SampleTank 4 MAX, Hammond B-3X, and MODO DRUM, plus Syntronik Deluxe, MODO BASS and Miroslav Philharmonik 2. That's over 440 GB of sounds, from orchestral to synthesizers to organs, as well as incredibly realistic physically modeled bass and drums. There's virtually no limit to the sounds available, making Total Studio 3 MAX ideal for every genre and style.

The latest effects and design

On the effects side, Total Studio 3 MAX is loaded with 487 effects and processors for everything from tone tweaking to sound design to mixing and mastering. Users 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.

For mixing and mastering, there's T-RackS 5 MAX with award-winning new modules like Sunset Sound Studio Reverb and the Tape Machine Collection, plus MixBox, ARC 3 and Lurssen Mastering Console. From tracking guitars to mastering albums, all the gear users need is here, looking and sounding better than ever.

Fuel for creativity

To get users going, Total Studio 3 MAX includes thousands of presets, including VIP artist and engineer presets. So, whether it's tracking a Hammond organ or mastering a pop song, instant inspiration is just a click away. Any category presets, including artist, can also serve as starting points and be saved as user presets for recall later.

Keeping it all together

Included with Total Studio 3 MAX is the new IK Product Manager, which automates the installation process and keeps all the IK products organized and up to date. Users can now focus on making music instead of updating software.
