BioTek: the NEW Virtual Synthesizer from Tracktion

Have you seen the new BioTek software synth from Tracktion?

It take samples from urban, natural and mechanical environments, and combines them with an advanced synthesis engine. The samples are newly recorded around the Seatle area by composer and engineer Mike Wall, using various stereo microphones, hydrophone rigs and digital recorders designed specifically for these conditions.

The synthesizer controls are intuitive, presenting you with the best parameters for each sound, to save you having to navigate through endless menus. As you can hear in the video above, it’s ideal for ambient music.

What do you think of this new synth? Would you use it? Why not let me know in the comments section below.

All the best,

    Nice! It looks pretty damn complex though. All I want is a simple all-in-one music editing software compatible for beginners. I think that kind of software would fit casual / starter people that like music editing.

    What do you recommend for that? I heard FL Studio was pretty good and easy to use.

      If you want something free that you can start making music with, I highly recommend you take a look at the online music software from Audiotool, which I mention on this article.

    This synth looks like a great piece of musical kit but probably has a steep learning curve attached. However, anyone who seriously wants to further their musical prowess will have the desire to both learn and master the many functions this synth has.

    When I first started learning how to use FL Studio 12 I was feeling pretty daunted, but also determined to learn it. While I won’t say I’ve mastered everything, I am very confident in using that software now.

    I think this is a great synth for certain types of musicians and would prove to be an invaluable tool.
