    I have Sampletank along with HALion VST plug-ins, the HALion works fine if I
    need to add a virtual instrument to a track, but selecting Sampletank, I
    can't select any instrument as it won't somehow preload into the interface,
    what is happening?

    A little more detailed information would be good.
    Which platform (Windows or Mac OS, version) ?
    Which version of Cubase?

    Are you sure, that Sampletank is installed correctly? If not, go to
    http://www.ikmultimedia.com/ and download Sampletank again from your "User
    area", then install it again ("over" the existing installation!). Next, try
    your VST host again, if it works then.
    Do you have Sampletank installed as stand-alone as well? If yes, does this
    work correctly?

    Sorry, the info is:

    Windows XP
    Pent. 4
    1 GB RAM
    Cubase LE 4
    Yes I have installed Sampletank correctly. The IKMedia site isn't that easy
    to understand thier instructions, I followed through everything and it still
    doesn;t work. I'm thinking that maybe somehow I may have got the unzipping
    part slightly wrong. Maybe if you can detail the correct way to unzip and
    where to unzip the instruments, that may be a big help.

    You may need to monkey around with your Cubase instrument file
    management. Some instruments, no matter what the install does, need to
    be located in EXACTLY the right directory for Cubase to recognize it.
    I have this problem with MTron.

    Using Windows Explorer, can you find the (sampletank).dll in your
    Steinberg directory?
