Play the vibe. Hear the magic. Syntronik is IK’s cutting-edge synthesizer that features the sound of the most iconic machines to ever grace the planet.

Syntronik comprises 22 powerful virtual synths recreating the legendary sonic signature of 44 of the most sought-after classic analog synthesizers and string machines ever created, recognizable by their elegantly designed, easy-to-navigate interfaces.

Thanks to IK’s exclusive DRIFT™ technology, which emulates the way real analog circuits behave over time, the astounding circuit-modeled filters and the multi-sampled oscillators, Syntronik is the most authentic sounding analog virtual synthesizer to date and is the one-stop solution for musicians, discerning producers and synth aficionados demanding utmost sound quality and extreme playability both live and in the studio.

Our team of developers and sound designers worked relentlessly to capture each machine’s “DNA” for the most realistic and flexible instruments possible that maintain the real character of the originals while extending their creative potential even further.

Syntronik offers Multis with 4 parts. Each part has its own synth, dynamic arpeggiator and a dedicated 5-slot effect section for unprecedented sound design flexibility, allowing for highly sophisticated sonic palettes.

The instruments available in Syntronik cover an incredibly wide range of sounds, triggering inspiration right from the start with 50 Instruments coming from 17 Synths.

Not bad and a trip through music history.

Enjoyed purchasing instruments I spent thousands of dollars on during my 40 year Music career. No, not nearly as good as the real keyboard, but I like the ease to splitting, stacking, effect and mixer controls I was able to understand almost immediately. I had a lot of Jam points and I used everyone. Nice that Ikmultimedia offers them. Easy access to registration and even more rewards for doing so. They are a little bit over advertising on every product they offer, but since Syntronik works with SampleTank 3, useful to have that opportunity. This is a 100 percent romper preset playing software. I have been able to do a lot of custom work with the A B C and D Instruments to stack or layer together. I would just use two words, fun and reasonable!🎶🎶🎧

Very, very nice...


I'll start off by saying that if you're a sound designer who likes to dig in depth into classic synths then you might want to look into other versions of those classics listed here. This isn't really a modeling app. There are no oscillators, just samples that can be tuned.

But, if you're looking for the amazing sounds that those classic synthesizers put out with plenty, albeit limited, tweakability then you'll really enjoy these synths. They have done a great job of capturing their sounds at IK Multimedia. The tweaking options include filters, an LFO section and a couple of envelopes, one for the filter and one for the amplitude. Enough to have plenty of fun.

I like to dig into synthesizers once in a while but this gives me plenty of classic sounds with enough customization that I can use them in my own music, to express what I want to express.

The midi options are there as far as I need them. It appears to be fairly robust in those options.

In the interest of full disclosure, I won the full upgrade in a drawing that was held by a loop review website that wasn't related to IK Multimedia. I don't feel my review has any bias as a result but it's fair for you to know.

MIDI promiscuous, in 2017?! (Now remedied!)

**EDIT** New version adds selectable MIDI channel, consider my complaining about MIDI channel no longer applicable!

Seriously, this thing responds on all connected MIDI devices to all MIDI channels on all layers.
A 4 layer synth app, without even the option to restrict MIDI to a single master channel is just baffling.

That being said, IK is on to something here, the result of the sample + subtractive synth controls is actually fabulous, the sounds are inspiring and rich, and almost as importantly, very tweakable.

It would be my main synth app if I could somehow control what it responds to.
Acceptable would be a single master channel and device selection option.
Optimal would be selectable MIDI channel per layer.

Another quibble is that while the MIDI CC mapping is well implemented, MIDI controlled mutes are abrupt and snap audibly.
Also, the sliders are impossible to adjust to a value accurately; you pretty much can't adjust a layer an octave down or up, getting any value to .00 is an exercise in frustration as it jumps all over the place.

If IK can remedy these issues, it's without a doubt a 5 star app; it tonally stands in the top group of iOS synths.

Developer Response

Thanks for your detailed review and feedback! Glad to hear you are enjoying the sounds. Stay tuned for future updates for improvements and new features, more to come! For returning a value to .00, try to double tap the parameter to reset it. Regarding any other concerns, please contact our Support team here for more details:
