PREMIUM VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT
A new generation of software synth that combines the sounds of nature with a complex synthesis engine to create weird and wonderful organic soundscapes.
The latest version of the BioTek Organic Synthesizer features vast arrays of controls allowing you to tweak every parameter of each sound as desired. However, the large XY controller at the center of the main GUI or "Wild" layer gives the synth its most unique aspect – the ability to easily blend various patches into new sounds and morph them in real time. It's extremely fun, creative and inspirational to use.
Biotek features 4 oscillators per sound layer capable of creating multiple forms of synthesis: FM Synthesis, Virtual Analog, Sample Playback and Karplus-Strong. With unlimited sound layers per patch, you can create simple or extremely complex, expressive instruments.
A Breath of Life
Biotek takes modulation to the next level – it features 200 modulation routes and 32 modifier routes performing mathematical functions on the modulation sources. It also features 8 unique Flow LFOs, each with 8 individual parallel syncable sub LFOs on every sound layer. With so much routing available, it is possible to program "life", an organic randomness, into your sounds.
Every parameter in Biotek's engine can be quickly assigned to the stunning front panel macro controls, allowing users to completely build their own instruments, making the instrument perfect for studio or live performance.

I'm very new to the new Tracktion team. I'd heard about them once or twice, but never saw any of their work in any detail. Purchasing Mackie mixers caused me to encounter "Lite" or early versions of one of their Tracktion DAWs, but as I've always felt overwhelmed with the number of DAW products available, with all their various strengths and weaknesses, I was afraid to try to learn its advantages. Until this month I didn't realize that Tracktion, early on, was really instrumental in developing some tendencies (contextual editing workflows built into the GUI, and track/clip freezing to name 2).
In toying with this for an hour or so, I find this to be one of the most well thought out ambient sound design tools out there. Make no mistake, there is a lot of deep function to understand, but right out of the box you can get your sound moods going faster than with anything, and I mean anything else. I've tried much of what's out there, and there are a great number of tools with certain better features, and certain better GUI sections, etc. Where this plugin shines is in having such a sheer volume of creative potential that isn't found elsewhere, allowing constant morphing if you like, note by note fx if you like, mathematical playgrounds if you like, etc., etc.
Well done to the team at Tracktion for getting this accomplished, and I am looking forward to trying out Biotek 2 which is set to drop momentarily, which has apparently added granular oscillators to the possibilities, (just when Propellerheads also have pushed forward in that direction which is nice - its always interesting to see multiple new takes on an old method.).
Biotek 2 also is said to add new filter types and an improved graphical design, but there's so much in here as it is that I can only hope to understand it over a number of months.
If you do sound design, trap, film scoring, ambient or chill type music, I think this baby will be a happy surprise even though it may seem slightly more expensive than certain other tools. Its like instead of buying a package of spice frozen meat, with biotek you're getting a whole fridge full of inspiring foods to create with and sample. And no, they are not toxic or labeled biohazard if you don't want them to be. (Which assumes you're not a zombie).Read more
