MusicRadar on Syntronik: "It's a true heavyweight!"

"Sounding phenomenal and supremely responsive"

"What elevates it above the baseline is the quality of the multisampling, the sheer number of presets on offer, DRIFT, that incredible filter, those spectacular effects, and the ability to layer four patches at a time."


MusicRadar and Computer Music magazine recently reviewed Syntronik and were astonished by the quality of the presets, the filter and the powerful effects. Here are some of their key comments:

"Syntronik is an epic-scale compilation of over 2000 preset sounds built on samples of 38 classic synths and divided up into 17 instrument categories."

"We can report that the note-to-note character of Syntronik’s virtual synths does indeed sound charmingly organic and very subtly variable - the [DRIFT] effect is particularly evident when both of the two oscillators are active."

"Sounding phenomenal and supremely responsive,they’re without doubt among the best software filters we’ve ever heard. And with all four - as well as a 1/2/4/8-stage phaser, a formant filter and the ‘classic’ SampleTank filter - available to every instrument, you can shove, say, a multisampled Moog Taurus oscillator through a modelled Roland filter, or bolt the Oberheim SVF onto the Alesis Andromeda. Awesome stuff."

"From EQ, dynamics and distortion to delay, reverb, filtering and modulation, it’s an all-encompassing roster, and every device sounds as good as it looks."

And the final verdict is:

"What elevates it above the baseline, though, is the quality of the multisampling, the sheer number of presets on offer, DRIFT, that incredible filter, those spectacular effects, and the ability to layer four patches at a time. All these elements add up to make Syntronik a quick, easy and convincingly analogue-sounding synthesiser compendium that delivers a voluminous and versatile library of highly customisable preset sounds."

Key Plusses:

 

+ Superb multi-sampled sounds
+ DRIFT and circuit-modelled filters
+ Excellent effects
