"...syntAX delivers all the sound of complex synthesis with very little effort." - Virtual Instruments Magazine

"It's really well done." - Keyboard Magazine

Introducing syntAX...part synth, part interactive sonic revolution. A massive, expansive, and complex collection of electronic textures, the core of syntAX is a 2000+ patch synth library covering an immense amount of synth territory, including soaring leads, evolving pads, thick basses, harsh distortions, unusual textures, other-worldly atmospheres, FX, hits, blips, and more.

Then syntAX blazes into new territory with its custom scatterFX engine which allows real-time manipulation and interaction with the syntAX core library. scatterFX is made up of two components: scatFX and stepFX. scatFX gives you unprecedented control over rhythmic stuttering, allowing you to program, play, and command rhythmic patterns of syntAX. stepFX functions as an advanced step modulator allowing you to melodically animate pattern-based arpeggiations. Both scatFX and stepFX lock to tempo and can be controlled by numerous external MIDI controllers, making the synth completely interactive.

syntAX goes far beyond where synthesizers have gone before. With a massive core library (designed by the renowned sonic sculptors at Bunker 8 Digital Labs) that goes far beyond traditional synthesis types, and an easily tweakable engine that multiplies the possibilities, syntAX is a new breed of synthesizer that puts the power in the hands of the synth enthusiast. syntAX is complex synthesis, but effortless creation.

The proliferation of sound libraries with included plug-in instrument engines has made it pretty difficult for any one library to stand out, particularly when a goodly portion of them are offered with Native Instruments' Kontakt Player 2. Ironically, because of this...

What is syntAX? Basically, it's a synth. Just like VI One it runs off of the Kontakt player engine, and can be opened in the full version of contact as well. It's slant is towards analog sounding synths but there is a twist and it's not all general bread and butter synth...

There's certainly no shortage of do-it-all sample playback instruments on the market, but syntAX falls interestingly askew of the curve. Featuring custom time-base morphing tools, this instrument does cover the standard areas: basses, leads, strings, pads, drums, etc....
