[NAMM] Tracktion launch BioTek organic synthesizer
Tracktion Corporation has announced the launch of the BioTek Organic Synthesizer, a virtual instrument combining synthesis engine and sampled sounds.
Built on the entirely new Acktion platform, this instrument features a single-screen user interface, dominated by a powerful XY controller and a number of soft controls that change function based on the particular patch in use, hence providing the flexibility of a modular synthesizer. In spite of its wide range of sounds and complex control options, BioTek is said to remain both easy and even inspirational to use. It is AAX/ AU/VST/Linux VST compatible and retails at $150.
“The quality and range of the sounds, as well as the way they interact with the synthesizer in organic and sometimes very twisted ways is uniquely addictive,” explained composer Mike Wall. “All of the patches are so carefully crafted that the mash-ups make sense in surprising and unexpected ways. I find myself tempted to compose an entire piece using only one instance of BioTek. This new instrument may become the next must-have tool for soundtrack, ambient, chillout, and electronic music work. It is perfect for adding a unique splash to modern popular music production.”
BioTek is AAX/ AU/VST/Linux VST compatible and retails at $150. You'll have an opportunity to see it demoed at the Tracktion stand in the Software NAMM room in association with IMSAT, booth 201C-17, Hall A on the 2nd floor. And/or, you can visit www.tracktion.com for more details.

Even solid-state drives (SSDs), though more reliable than those with spinning disks, can still crash unexpectedly. And when your hard drive goes, your data is most likely gone forever, or only salvageable through expensive data recovery processes. In addition to drive crashes, you can also lose your data to fire, flood and theft. If you record music, a data loss is devastating — which is why you need to backup your files.
