A new generation of software synth that combines the sounds of nature with a complex synthesis engine to create weird and wonderful organic soundscapes.

Complete Control

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.

Creative Horsepower

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.

Surgical Precision

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.

First of I'd like to thank the developers of Biotek and Waveform for taking the plunge, and providing support for other OS's beside micro$ windows (tm) and apple OSn. So far I'm very impressed with the products, achieving 2-5% CPU utilization for demo project (jackd server), and am generally very happy with the purchase.

I've paid for and installed the Waveform (8) top tier package ($200), and so far I've activated the essentials collection, Bioteck, and part way through setting up collective (2GB download : (). While debugging Bioteck functionality, I noticed a dependency for webkit-gtk. Anyone feel free to chip in here, but that package can only be regarded as safe to use on the apple OSn platform, where I believe it is actively patched. Most linux's only provide thispackage for legacy support, and encourage users to avoid it because of the plethora of CVE's, microsoft doesn't appear to directly support this library by relying on 3rd party maintainers i.e. Tracktion and the webkit-gtk people (assuming they're still alive). Fortunately for Tracktion M$ windows users assume everything is OK in the playground because developers are very clever, and sort security issues out tout suite. Experienced linux users are less presumptious, and tend to assume the worst, that said I've practically given up on 'security' as a concept following the realization that the privacy war is not fought on a level pitch, and everyone including governments think that privacy protections are not for the masses (us). I'll cut to the chase, webkit-gtk is provided as a source package, for me it was an 8 hour build, the supported webkit2gtk package is a binary package, and takes <5minutes to install. Is there a plan to migrate the webkit dependency to webkit2? I for one would be very appreciative.

Thanks for your patience.


As an aside is webkit used as a widget/gl-canvas rendering library? There are probably better alternatives if that should be so.
