There are plenty of effects included that you can dial in to further enhance or shape (sound design) the tone of the instruments.

Rating:  Five out of five stars

The new additions to the Syntronik synths collection recreate the vibe and sound of the original vintage synthesizers with positively close to authentic results. Key is IK’s exclusive DRIFT technology that keeps moving the sound like real analog oscillators used in the hardware. The five brand-new Syntronik synths blend the greatest of mono-synth, modular, percussion, and polysynth into one neat additional package. The whole Syntronik Deluxe package combines up to 22 synths now when you obtain the complete package (Syntronik Deluxe is five new synths)
