IK Multimedia unveils its latest and greatest virtual synth, Syntronik

IK Multimedia has introduced what could turn out to be a serious contender in the synth plug-in. The new virtual synth, which is available for both macOS and Windows, is called Synthronik, and will be available for purchase starting in July 2017 — though you can pre-order it starting now.

Syntronik comes with a hefty 17 instruments, with 2,000 presets available — which cover a hefty 38 of the world’s most iconic synthesizers to date. Those sounds can then be edited to exactly suit your needs.

Syntronik also includes IK Multimedia’s so-called “Drift” technology, which is aimed at making virtual synthesizers sound more like analog counterparts. According to IK Multimedia, virtual synths always have the same sample attack — which isn’t true to analog synths. Drift varies things like phase and color slightly to help make that sound slightly more realistic.

Perhaps one of the coolest things about IK Multimedia Syntronik is that it allows you to combine up to four synths to achieve the sound you want. A layering interface will allow for quick and easy mapping. The synths can also be read by SampleTank, which is helpful for those that already own and use SampleTank.

You’ll also get a slew of effects with Syntronik, many of which come straight from T-RackS and AmpliTube.

Here’s a full list of the synths available in Syntronik: 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.
