New virtual instrument update delivers iconic synthesizers and string machines on more iOS devices and with Audio Units compatibility.

December 12, 2017 - IK Multimedia is pleased to announce the version 1.1 update of Syntronik, the legendary synth powerhouse, is now available for both iPhone and iPad from the App Store.

Syntronik now also supports Audio Units plug-in compatibility for host applications like GarageBand, Cubasis, Auria, AUM Mixer and others, allowing users to easily record multitrack projects on the go using their favorite synths from the collection.

Syntronik offers the largest collection of classic synthesizers in a virtual instrument for iOS devices. A new hybrid sample and modeling synthesis engine, high-quality modeled effects, and innovative instrument features offer great flexibility and sound quality. Syntronik includes 17 amazing synths covering a wide selection from 38 of the most iconic to ultra-rare classic synthesizers and string machines of all time:

Each of the 38 synthesizers in Syntronik for iPhone and iPad was painstakingly multi-sampled using the most advanced techniques available to capture the "DNA" of the hardware and accurately reproduce the real sound of the classic synthesizers. Adding even greater realism, IK's proprietary Drift technology varies the phase, color and pitch of the sampled oscillators in a subtle fashion to keep them moving just like real analog oscillators.

The unique hybrid synthesis engine provides ultimate sonic authenticity thanks to its modeled filter section built by IK, the company that pioneered virtual circuit modeling. Syntronik offers 7 filter types including 4 of the best-sounding analog filters of all time: 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 like Formant and Phase. Plus, all 7 filters can be selected within each synth, enabling users to mix and match them - like using an Oberheim filter with Moog oscillators for new and totally unique combinations.


Syntronik lets users shape sounds in a myriad of ways with 37 professional effects ranging from dynamic processors to amps, filters, EQ's, modulation effects, reverbs and more. Five effects can be simultaneously inserted on every instrument via an attractive "lunchbox-style" interface that allows for immediate visualization and editing of every parameter from a single screen.

The 17 powerful Synths in Syntronik for iPhone and 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 1,200 stellar instrument presets, 200 carefully programmed Multis, (available in the full version or with all 17 synths), and 129 compelling arpeggios, Syntronik provides ultimate inspiration covering any genre or style of music.
