    IK Multimedia Syntronik

    IK Multimedia has built a well-deserved reputation for creating powerful and authentic digital music tools, and the company’s new Syntronik is sure to be another hit with musicians. The new virtual synthesizer promises to take the virtual instrument game up another big notch with 38 iconic synths and string machines samples with IK Multimedia’s usual attention to detail. The app features a new hybrid sampling and modelling synthesis engine combined with a large set of high-quality modelled effects. Over 2,000 preset sounds are included that cover a huge selection of vintage synths, including some ultra-rare classic synthesizers that few will ever have an opportunity to lay their hands on.

    yntronik includes 17 amazing instruments, available as a collection or separately, with over 2,000 preset sounds covering a wide selection from 38 of the most iconic to ultra-rare and painstakingly multi-sampled vintage synthesizers. Syntronik’s synthesis engine goes well beyond traditional sampling thanks to a brand new analog modeled filter section created with the utmost expertise from IK, the pioneer in virtual crcuit modeling. This is coupled with exclusive DRIFT™ technology to accurately reproduce the behavior of oscillators from real hardware synths. All of this combined with an effects section that is unrivaled in the world of virtual instruments along with advanced features like 4-part layers, splits and arpeggiators make Syntronik the ultimate source of inspiration with the widest palette of synthesizer sounds ranging from exact reproductions of the originals to sounds never heard before that will stand out from the crowd in productions covering any genre and style.

    To create the incredible sound library in Syntronik, IK Multimedia selected the best synth models they could find, often sourced from private collections around the world, and then meticulously multi-sampled them to capture the character of the actual original synths are accurately as possible — over 70,000 individual samples were collected, totalling 50GB of sound data. In addition to the incredible sounds that Syntronik promises to deliver, IK Multimedia developed a new synthesis engine that models four of the top analog filters of all time: Moog transistor ladder, Roland’s IR3109 chip, the Curtis CEM3320 chip, and the Overheim SEM state variable filter, and not only used these models to enhance the classic synthesizer sounds, but also opened them up to allow users to mix and match in ways that they never dreamed possible, such as combining a Moog filter with Oberheim oscillators. A new DRIFT algorithm developed by IK Multimedia also provides an extended level of realism by varying the phase, color and pitch of the samples oscillators to make them sound just like their true hardware counterparts, taking away the sterility of a digital synthesizer and accurately emulating the way that real analog circuits behave over time.

    The app also features a streamlined UI that will allow users to quickly layer and combine up to four different synthesizer parts, mapping and playing sounds simultaneously and creating advanced splits, along with note and chord arpeggiators, each with their own assignable range and settings. Users can also store and instantly recall all of this information, allowing them to call up complex rhythmic textures and sequences at the push of a button. In addition to the huge collection of instruments, Syntronik also adds in 38 high-quality effects from IK’s T-RackS mix and mastering suite and AmpiTube guitar workstation, and adds a few new ones to the mix, such as Ensemble Chorus and Channel Strip. Each instrument can have five effects simultaneously inserted, and an attractive “lunchbox-style” interface provides a single screen control of the entire effects chain. Syntronik is available for pre-order now and expected to ship in July 2017.
