This powerful virtual instrument combines organic, natural, and environmental samples with a world-class synth engine and an inspirational user interface, inviting users to explore in depth the world of digital modular synthesis.

Designed from the ground up to be different, Biotek 2 is a completely original engine with its own unique sound.

The resulting compositions become more natural, animated, spontaneous, and organic.

Biotek’s sound architects include industry veteran Wolfram Franke, prominent sound designer Taiho Yamada and experimental synth guru Richard Devine (best known for his critically acclaimed remix of Aphex Twin’s “Come to Daddy”), who skillfully craft more than 500 deeply creative sonic experiments for the factory patch list. This list includes over 100 patches created by Richard himself and 40 new sounds from film composer Christian Halten. Plus composer and engineer Mike Wall has added an entirely new collection of audio samples including natural, environmental, and industrial sounds.

Biotek 2 is a fresh new synthesizer playground in a weird and wonderfully immersive world. Its bigger modulation and modifier matrix offer virtually limitless sound possibilities, making it a dream come true for video and sound composition, film, and game scorers and DJs alike.
