IK Multimedia has announced that Syntronik is now available and shipping from the IK Online Store and select IK resellers for for $/€299.99, and $/€199.99 cross grade** price (excluding taxes). The virtual synthesizer combines advanced sampling techniques and a new hybrid sampling and modeling synthesis engine to provide players and producers with the a collection of vintage synthesizers..
The Syntronik engine goes beyond simple sampling of sounds by adding a section of analog-modeled filters and, thanks to a unique technology known as DRIFT, capable of reproducing the behavior of the analog oscillators of the original models to the smallest detail.
IK say when it comes to accurately reproducing the real sound of vintage synthesizers, sampling their oscillators is the only way to ensure truly authentic results. Each of the 38 synths in Syntronik was meticulously multi-sampled creating a library of over 50GB and 70,000 samples.
Syntronik synths include:
Modular Moog, Minimoog Model D, Moog Voyager, Moog Taurus I, Moog Taurus II, Moog Taurus 3, Polymoog, Moog Opus 3, Moog Rogue, Realistic Concertmate MG-1, Multimoog, Micromoog, Moog Prodigy, Sequential Circuits Prophet-5, Sequential Circuits Prophet-10, ARP 2600, Oberheim SEM, Oberheim OB-X, Oberheim OB-Xa, Yamaha CS-80, Yamaha GX-1, Yamaha CS-01II, Yamaha SY99, Roland Juno-60, Roland Jupiter-8, Roland Jupiter-6, Roland Jupiter-4, Roland JX-10, Roland JX-8P, Roland JX-3P, Roland TB-303 Bassline, Alesis Andromeda, PPG Wave 2.3, ARP String Ensemble, Elka Rhapsody 490, Hohner String Performer, Roland RS-505 Paraphonic & Roland RS-09 Organ/Strings.
Syntronik offers 7 filter types including 4 of the best sounding analog filters of all time: the Moog transistor ladder, Roland's IR3109 chip, the famous Curtis CEM3320 chip and the Oberheim SEM state variable filter. This allows for pristine reproduction of the most critical section of every synthesizer. Syntronik also provides a Classic low-pass filter and powerful digital filters like Formant and Phase that can take the analog source oscillators into a whole new world of sonic possibilities. Plus, all 7 filters can be selected within each included instrument, enabling users to mix and match them at will - like using a Moog filter with Oberheim oscillators - for unique combinations.
Syntronik works as a stand-alone instrument for Mac/PC as well as a plug-in for most popular DAWs. Syntronik sounds can also be seamlessly read by SampleTank 3 (with the version 3.7 update available from the IK Multimedia website), allowing them to be used individually or as 4-part instruments together with the vast and continually expanding range of instruments available in the SampleTank library.
IK has also released Syntronik Free. With this version you can experience all 17 instruments with 50 available sounds including the full functionality of all controls, 38 effects, 4-part layers, splits and arpeggiators. This allows you to build a customized synth studio one instrument at a time and easily expand Syntronik Free via the In-App Shop. Each of the 17 instruments, available separately, will have full functionality and include all the presets related to the correspondent instrument from the collection library.
