Analog Synth Modeling For iPad
A strong offering for IOS from IK Multimedia was released today. Their flagship instrument Syntronik is now ported to iPad meaning that thirty eight, super rare, analog modeled synths are now available in the palm of your hand. All synths were multi-sampled and then treated with IK’s proprietary DRIFT™ technology which creates non-linear variations in phase, color and pitch of the sampled oscillators to keep them sounding alive – just like real analog oscillators.
Syntronik has 7 different filter types including the Moog transistor ladder, Roland’s IR3109 chip, the famous Curtis CEM3320 chip and the Oberheim SEM state variable filter. Also included is a Classic low-pass filter and powerful digital filters for Formant and Phase. All 7 filters can be selected within each Synth, allowing for unique combinations of filters that would be otherwise impossible to recreate. Together with the modular effects racks this is a sound designer’s paradise.
Effects and Modulation Rack
The 17 powerful Synths in Syntronik for iPad are easily recognizable by their elegant interfaces with consistent controls for ease of use. Sounds can be loaded into 4-part layered “Multis” with each part containing its own instrument, key splits, arpeggiator and dedicated 5-slot effect section for ultimate sound design flexibility. With 1200 stellar sounding instrument presets, 200 carefully programmed Multis, (available in the full version or with all 17 synths), and 129 compelling arpeggios, Syntronik provides an inspiration factory covering any genre or style of music. Syntronik for iPad includes 37 effects including dynamic processors, amps, filters, EQ’s, modulation effects and reverbs. Up to 5 effects can be simultaneously inserted on every instrument via a gorgeous 500/Eurorack style interface that places all used effects on a single screen.
