"Syntronik is an absolute hit, a must for every synth fan"

4 October 2017

Professional Audio's Christian Stede has put Syntronik, IK's new powerhouse of legendary synths, through its paces and clearly likes what he discovers.

Read some of his key comments here.

"Syntronik brings the sounds of many legendary, long-since unavailable instruments together with first-class effects in one single software solution. A must for every synth fan."

"The sound quality of the effects is beyond any doubt."

"The distortion effects from AmpliTube are made for giving the final polish to the synth sounds which can bring excellent results, in particular with lead sounds."

"The software is excellent at simulating the analog punch, without appearing too overpowering."

"It would unfortunately go beyond the scope of this test to go through all the 17 instruments individually, anyhow they all sound really warm and lively. There is definitely nothing to be felt of the typical lack of oomph that software synthesizers tend to show in a mix when compared to real acoustic instruments."

Verdict
"Syntronik is an absolute hit. The sample library sounds outstanding and it fully lives up to the expectation of being able to recreate the sound of old vintage synthesizers. The powerful and inspiring arpeggiator, as well as the vast selection of great effects, complete this excellent product. Its use is also nearly self-explanatory and the price is very fair, too."

PLUS
• very accomplished emulation of analog models
• operating method of the arpeggiators
• vast selection of great effects
• easy and clear operation

MINUS
• NONE

Excellence award - Superior class

Here are some quotes from the original review in German.

"Syntronik vereint die Klänge vieler legendärer, längst vergriffener Instrumente zusammen mit hochwertigen Effekten in einem einzigen Softwarepaket. Ein Muss für jeden Synthie-Fan."

"Die Klangqualität dieser Plug-ins ist über jeden Zweifel erhaben."

"Die Verzerrung aus dem AmpliTube ist wie geschaffen dafür, den Synthie-Sounds den letzten Biss zu geben, was insbesondere bei Lead-Sounds zu hervorragenden Ergebnissen führen kann."

"Die analoge Power wird von der Software hervorragend simuliert, ohne dabei zu aufdringlich zu klingen."

"Es würde den Rahmen dieses Tests sprengen, auf jedes der 17 Instrumente einzeln eingehen, doch klingen sie allesamt lebendig und warm. Vom Mangel an Durchsetzungsfähigkeit, den Softwaresynthesizer im Mixdown gegenüber echten, akustischen Instrumenten oft haben."


Fazit
"Syntronik ist ein absoluter Volltreffer. Die Sample-Library klingt hervorragend und löst den Anspruch, die charakteristischen Klänge alter Vintage-Synthesizer zu simulieren,  voll und ganz ein. Der effiziente und die Kreativität beflügelnde Arpeggiator sowie die große Auswahl an sehr guten Effekten rundendieses Bild ab. Die Bedienung ist fast schon selbsterklärend und der Preis keinesfalls zu hoch."

PLUS
• sehr gelungene Simulation analoger
Vorbilder
• Wirkungsweise des Arpeggiators
• große Auswahl an sehr guten Effekten
• übersichtliche Bedienung

MINUS
