We’ve all been enjoying IK Multimedia’s Syntronik bundle of classic sampled version of vintage synthesizers. And now they’ve added 5 more synths to create the “Deluxe” version. Let’s check out what’s new.
These new instruments add 500 presets made up of over 22,000 samples in 18GBs of new sounds. So the whole package now contains 22 instruments with 2,600 presets and 80GB of sound content. When is too much too much? Can we ever have enough I wonder?
Memory-V: It’s the legendary Memorymoog 6-voice, 18-oscillator monster analog polysynth. Featuring 148 instrument presets, 5GB, over 6,000 samples.
SH-V: Based on the Roland SH-5 and SH-2. It features 100 instrument presets, 4GB, over 5,000 samples.
M-Poly: Based on the Korg Mono/Poly and Polysix. It has 100 instrument presets, 4GB, over 3,000 samples.
VCF3: It’s The Putney, the EMS VCS3. Featuring 106 instrument presets, 3GB, over 7,000 samples.
Modulum: A bunch of analog modular drums and percussion created with interconnected Modular Moog, EMS VCS3 and Alesis Andromeda synths. It features 108 instrument presets, 400MB, over 2,000 samples.
It’s not as if the original bundle was short on sources of synthesized sound. So these are not exactly filling holes as much as broadening an already vast sound palette. But when it comes to virtual synths, more is more.
The upgrade with cost you $99 for existing owners or $399 for first timers for the whole bundle of 22 instruments. Or you can purchase them individually for $49.99 a pop.
