If expanded with more synths in the future, a Roland XP-80 would be a cool edition to the collection already in play.

You do realize that the Roland JV-XP series were all digital ROMplers, and not vintage analog synths? I think the plan with Syntronik design was to stick to analog gear.

I own several of the classic JV-XP hardware originals, and as good as they were, I cannot see the point of re-sampling them to create virtual instruments, as their sounds were all sample ROM based to begin with. Kind of like a SampleTank in a box. But just with less sample memory and CPU power. :D

Roland has re-issued the JV-1080 as part of their Roland Cloud with the original sound sets, and the expansions.

Aye but each of those sample based synths have some unique samples that gave them their signature sounds. My Korg 03 R/W ,Roland JV880, U220, and Alesis S4 Plus all have some unique sounds beyond just pianos and strings etc.

I'd love to have a Syntronik library that pays homage to that era and I've been saying that since Syntronik was released. After all there is an SY-77 module and it's not Analog so... ;)

The sampled based and hybrid synths of the late 80's early 90's are not well represented in the VSTi emulation market and they really did help define genres such as New Age back in their day.

While I rarely power up my hardware synths now back in the day I loved layering several of these sample based synths together to create some very lush and complex sounds. I can imagine doing the same thing with Syntronik's four layers/arps etc.

The problem would be you'd need the permission of the copyright holder of the original samples of those modules to do an exact emulation and I doubt Korg Roland etc would allow that.

But you could put together a generic rompler from those days by including samples like Shaku, Bottle Blow, Bells, Choirs, Strings, some Spacey sounds (think the D-50's "Soundtrack"), etc.

I would insta buy such a library for Syntronik. Lord knows we have enough analog content already. :P

I guess that is why we already have the "Korg Legacy Collection" and the "Roland Cloud". Keeping their grip on those signature sounds.

You could always fire up your favorite virtual multi-sampler and sample away! :D

Or buy AIR Xpand!2 for a buck when it goes on sale.

Or I could just post at the IK forums to show my interest in Syntronik content that isn't from yet another boring Analog synth. ;)

I already own XPand!2 and Kontakt and Structure and Sampletank 3 but that's not the subject of this thread.

The thread title is "Syntronik Feature Requests" not "Suggest a Workaround".

I'm not going to go back and re-read all the posts in this thread but I have the feeling almost none of the requests anyone made in this thread ever saw the light of day if any.

I'm only replying to this thread because notifications keeps popping up in my email. I have no delusions that anyone from IK will listen or even care. It is a lesson in futility.

But saying I'll insta buy a Rompler library for Syntronik might get some attention since with IK it's all about the money.

I believe that you actually meant the SY-99, rather than SY-77, in regards to the Syntronik instrument. It was a hybrid of sample based ROM and FM synthesis. While FM is not analog, it is a form of digital synthesis. So it is a real classic digital synth, in the spirit of the DX7.

The IK notes about the SY-99 do indicate that they omitted the sample ROM sounds from the Syntronik instrument, however.
Syntronik includes only FM sounds from the SY99, and its representation in the library is vast and extensive.


And I still think that the potential copyright issues for sampling a commercial sample ROM and selling those sounds without a license from the owner probably make the discussion a moot point. Legally and financially, probably never going to happen.

Yes it's an SY99 not 77 but it's still not an analog synth. So the concept of providing content that's not just another boring analog synth is there already. ;)

As I wrote earlier.......

The problem would be you'd need the permission of the copyright holder of the original samples of those modules to do an exact emulation and I doubt Korg Roland etc would allow that.

Much of that content already exists in Sampletank or Sonik Synth. Just put some of that content together in a package for Syntronik, add some new samples, create a generic Rompler front end GUI and boom you've pushed Syntronik into new territory not covered by analog dinosaurs.

You don't have to sample the actual units to come up with a generic rompler that covers much of the territory of synths from that time period.

Anyway like I said I would insta buy such a library. Whether you want such a library or not doesn't concern me in the least bit. ;)

Hello !
I really miss parts octave transpose in multi…
And eventually, multitimbral mode with assignable midi channels.

Maybe I missed it, but it would save SO much time if you could preview presets without actually having to load them (similar to how NI's Komplete Kontrol works).
