Here is a question:

Are there any instruments in Syntronik that do NOT have the DRIFT ? For example, just samples of the regular oscillators synced?

Just a quick comment on Syntronik. I bought this when it came out and I was kind of in 2 minds as I was really not impressed with Sampletank 3 when it came out. I have recently been on a break from music (I almost walked away entirely) due to being totally distracted by GAS and internet stuff. Since getting back into it, I have really been working with unexpected tools like AAS Strum and chromaphone. I was struggling to find an authentic sounding synth lead sound for a track I am working on and I thought give Syntronik a spin...Well, what a revelation. The presets in this synth are so accessible and immediately useful, it is amazing. I very quickly found just the right lead sound for the track and it just sits so nicely in the mix. I was able to audition a lot of sounds and a lot seemed to sit well in the sweet spot for the style of songs I write (sort of indie 80s synth and guitar pop).

So, I just want to say thank you to IK and a big well done to the development team...great stuff. :tu:

I'm checking on this to be sure I give you the proper information. Thank you for your patience.

Edit - I received an answer:

Some of the sync sweeps and full patch samples do not use the DRIFT algorithm since the round robin playback is creating the realistic variations on repeated notes for those. Our sound designers have made the decision carefully for each instrument. The instrument, “Sync Sweep Light,” in the free desktop version is a good example of this. Also, the DRIFT algorithm is not used on the 99 and Blau instruments since those have digital oscillators that do not … drift.

Wow, thank you so much for the kind words. I'll let the team know for sure!

Downloaded the iPad free version. The full version is about 4 GB, so it doesn't come anyway near the 50 GB of the desktop version (which is so fine with me). And yes, yes: Meh it is a rompler, meh you cannot change waveforms, meh it doesn't sound exactly like its sample sources and..and..and...therefore I bought it. Actually it is the most expensive iPad synth I have bought. I couldn't help it. It was so easy to turn some of the demo patches into realistic sounding analogish basses that I just had to buy it. The filter env makes all the difference. If this is a "weak rompler", I look forward to see some the strong ones for iPad.

Hmm. Could have made a big difference if you could choose to spread osc 1 and 2 so one could be used as sub. Could it be added or is the deal done for updates too?

I just tried the iOS demo out of curiosity. And... meh... it's a rompler. Nothing wrong with it, and the existing patches sound good. It just isn't my cup of tea.

Good to see how it gets ignored...

So where's that version 1.1 with Aftertouch support ? :wink:

The team is working on updates to both the desktop and iPad versions of Syntronik. There are a lot of things on their plate, beyond that there's nothing sinister going on nor any real reason to cause cynicism.

What? Your post agreeing with yourself after no other KVRians chimed in? Sorry you didn't really ask a question [edit - or what you "asked" seemed clearly rhetorical since you knew the answer] and the topic was covered and the suggestion already relayed long ago.
