I'm considering purchasing the ik studio bundle 3 to start expanding my plugin collection. I was wondering if anybody uses this and what they think of their product. Also if it works well with sonar. I have researched the komplete 9 as well but I feel it is very pricey and it seems that the ik bundle is more for the $. Any thoughts, input or advise? Thanks. ADK laptop i7-3630 QM 2.40 GHz 16 gig RAM. Dual 750 hard drives. Windows 7 pro 64 bit OS. V studio 100 interface.

I think Michael (another forum member) has this product. Hopefully, he'll chime in here...

I have the Total Studio 3 Bundle and dirtysteve has Miroslav Orchestra at least. I bought mine, because it was only $50 more than upgrading my AmpliTube2 to 3. AmpliTube and T-Racks are 64bit, whereas the others are still 32 ( I am pretty sure of that).

IK has posted these useful YouTube tutorials at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZA6HoHM3TE

dirtysteve's song with Miroslav can be heard here
http://www.digifreq.com/digifreq/discuss/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=7919

I haven't used it a lot yet, but no problems and I really like the whole thing. Here is the link to a long thread RE my installing and IK helping. You might find this helpful.

Thanks Michael, I found the bundle for $249. I figure with the amplitube and all that goes with it you can't go wrong. I have been checking a lot on you tube researching this package. My main thing is I needed to hear that it works well with x2p and from what you have said and after going back on the thread you provided it looks like ill have to pull the trigger on this and buy it. Thanks again for your input Michael.

Yeah, it seemed a no brainer deal for me, too. $199 to upgrade to AmpliTube3 or another $50 even for 32 bit programs (when I got mine I thought they were all 32 bit). Eli Krantzberg did a Groove3 tutorial on compression or mixing (I will look for it and repost) where he used T-Racks comps and I got even happier about buying the bundle. Do read through my thread on Total Studio Bundle 3.
You are essentially getting SampleTank to play all the various sample libraries.
I love AmpliTube3 by the way. Dirtysteve loves Miroslav. I have the CW Dimension Pro HD strings, GPO4 and am sure that Miroslav will have some things I really appreciate on some project.

I can speak to some components of the bundle really favorably.

Sample Tank is really cool, easy to use and has some excellent samples for everything from drums to percussion to ethnic instruments. Really nice.

Miroslav Philharmonik is super fantastic IMO. The samples are really well done and the depth of control for tweaking and effects is impressive. It's a beautiful kit. You can hear the upright bass and pipe organ flute (tweaked out) here in this song I posted just this week: https://soundcloud.com/12thhouse/a-braves-journey

Amplitube 3 is really cool and I've purchased some of the pedals you can add and like them a lot. The amp sim's are good as far as plugins go and I like the choice of microphones, mic placement, speakers and room-type. The only other plugin for guitars I'd compare it to would be the Nigel plug that comes with the UAD card (although there's no Moog sim available).

Also, IK are very generous with freebies when you become a customer. Impressive manufacturer IMO.

P.S.
Integration with Sonar is a cinch.

Sampletank has other soundsets. I bought it with a special vintage collection soundset which fit my tastes well, but I've also got the default soundset too. Amplitude 3, T-Racks 3 Deluxe (is that the latest version?); the Deluxe is important to have. I've got a whole bunch of their stuff and like it all. The bundle of course is the way to go. I always felt their products were quite a bit overpriced, even when you could get a discount. They've come way down in price though through this economically challenged time.

T-Racks Deluxe is now one step below T-Racks Grande ($199 to upgrade to the top- though it was only $99 last year and I'm hoping for that deal again).
CSR reverbs have gone 64 bit and are free upgrade,now. Here is a link to the differences of basic, Deluxe and Grande which has the Custom Shop, so you can buy whatever you require.

Thanks for all the helpful input everyone, I ordered it last night and it will be here on Friday. Found it through amazon for $249 prime member so no tax or shipping. Now I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas mourning. Thanks again.

I got this link today and thought I'd share it.
Using T-Racks for mid-side mixing mastering, it opened my mind to another way of thinking of mid-side, altogether!

Ok so I have received the ik studio product and downloaded all the disk. At this time only the amplitube and the t racks are working with cakewalk. By the way I love amplitube. None of the other stuff is showing up. Miroslav, sample tank, sonic synth, sample moog and the csr reverbs. I don't know why but it is what it is. I am going to do a reinstall and hope this works. Perhaps they took the wrong path. Or then again I am a complete idiot. Both are possibilitys. Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful. I just wanna make music.

Miroslav shows up as a soft synth and you'll only see it when you go through the process of inserting a soft synth. Sample Tank is the same. It only shows up as a soft synth when inserting a soft synth.

Your other plugs I'm not familiar with; sorry.

I emailed IK when I had trouble installing my TSB3. You'll have to sign in (create your IK account) to the IK forum, but here is one link to my question and their response
http://www.ikmultimedia.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=4945&p=25890&sid=f6748519929d71f526669744c0492b49

I will gather the others and post them, too.
Are you on the Cakewalk Forum? Peter IK is on there, too. He doesn't always respond very fast. So, help yourself.
How many of the IK programs show up in your Program Files(x86)?
AmpliTube3, CSR and T-Racks are 64 bit and in Program Files.

You do have to run them as administrator! Did you?
Otherwise no joy.
Here's another one RE my installing the libraries, which should help.
http://www.ikmultimedia.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=5188

and a 3rd RE putting all the sounds on my library drive...

http://www.ikmultimedia.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=4775

Did you register them yet? They might not show up till you do. I haven't remembered that, yet! LOL
Hope this helps
Michael

By the way, on the IK forum moderator Peter_IK mentions that SampleTank3, which will be 64 bit and AAX compatible "should be out later this year".
