IK Multimedia Releases Syntronik 2
A comprehensive collection of rare and sought-after synths expanded with more models, stunning new sonic accuracy and the deepest editing yet
Syntronik 2 offers 33 synths in all, available in 4 different versions or as individual instruments. There are over 5,500 presets that cover a wide range of sounds from 54 of the most iconic to ultra-rare vintage synthesizers. For fans of the original version, all of the Syntronik and Syntronik Deluxe legacy presets are also included and sound identical in Syntronik 2.
An easy-to-use layering interface lets users quickly map and play up to 4 different synthesizer parts simultaneously, as well as create advanced splits for maximum flexibility and live performance, while a brand-new controller for Syntronik 2 offers detailed filtering of sustain, PB, MW and AT per part for unparalleled sound design. Syntronik 2 adds a new Edit panel with many new user-requested features.
There are per-oscillator DRIFT controls, extended envelopes and LFOs along with a programmable modulation matrix. Plus a new Wave Set Browser that lets users choose the sound for each of up to 4 oscillators and 2 suboscillators per preset for a new level of sound design. IK’s DRIFT technology varies the phase, color and pitch of the sampled oscillators to keep them moving just like the real analog oscillators do.
Much more than simple detuning or even multiple-source modulation, DRIFT emulates the way real analog circuits behave over time. The result is the unmistakable sound of analog that is the soul of any classic synthesizer sound. Syntronik 2 comes with 71 exciting effects derived from IK’s popular T-RackS 5 mix and mastering suite, MixBox processors and AmpliTube 5 guitar workstation.
Up to 5 effects can be simultaneously inserted on every instrument via a “lunchbox-style” interface, which offers immediate visualization and editing of every parameter from within a single, convenient location. The 4 synthesizer parts in Syntronik 2 feature a powerful note and chord arpeggiator, each with its own assignable range and settings as well as the ability to store them for instant recall. Along with a new step sequencer, this allows users to build complex rhythmic textures and sequences with extreme ease and inspiring effectiveness.
An advanced browser offers fast and convenient navigation of Syntronik 2’s vast library of presets to let users find the right sounds in an instant. Content can be browsed by instrument or single sounds. Searches can be refined using keywords and sorted by category, character and type. Users can also rate favorite sounds to find them in a flash.
