UPDATE MAY 30th:
Group buy has maxed out. Buy one Syntronik 2 synth for $49.99 and get 32 more free (33 total). This is the Syntronik 2 complete collection. If I understand correctly, it's like getting Syntronik2 MAX ($149.99) for $49.99 as part of this group buy.

I got in early and had faith that I would get more synth modules but got them all. In this last day, you no longer had to worry about faith, and can simply get the last 32 free.
















(April 19th - May 19th, 2022) < Extended. As of May 25th. 5 days left


In short, buy any virtual synth module ($49.99) such as the GS-V [ikmultimedia.com] which has the sounds of the Yamaha GS1 and IK Multimedia will give you your choice of at least 4 more modules to pick from. There are 32 modules to pick from. This sale is for the next 27 days and as more people register their product (currently 200+ registrations, thus buy 1 get 4 free) they will add more free synth modules as they reach 100 more "group" purchases.


You can buy at any time and still get the free ones if they reach new levels of buyers over the next 27 days. Likewise, you can buy more than one Syntronic product and get another set of free products. For example, at the current level you could buy two modules $99.98 and get 8 free ones extra. [Note, this offer of a group buy is still going up in the number of free products. So, this example is out of date, there are more free ones with each purchase, the point being is that one can do this offer more than once and get more free ones, although it might be wise to wait on the second purchase. ]


If I was going to do this, I would hold off until later in the promotion to see if you might get them all for free anyway.


Note, you do not have to buy the standalone Syntonik 2 CS player. It is free to use, you are paying for the modeled synth library add ons [ikmultimedia.com]. Even if you don't want any of the paid modules, Syntronik 2 comes with 100 presets and 2.4GB of sound content for free.


I was a returning customer and had $26 'JamPoints' in my account and was able to get a $15 discount (max is 30%) off the $49.99 making it $34.99. They gave away 20 free JamPoints to account holders on April 8th. I'm not sure if you will get this if you make a new account. [See link in WIKIwhere it does look like currently a new user can get $20 in free JamPoints, which makes $15 usable toward this deal.]


Finally, you can buy from your favorite authorized dealer and still get this offer on product registration.

Quote from IKmultimedia :
We're celebrating the release of Syntronik 2 [ikmultimedia.com] with the first-ever promotion of its kind, focusing on one virtual instrument collection and all of its individual instruments.
The Syntronik 2 Group Buy [ikmultimedia.com] gives you an incredible way to get every Synth you want from Syntronik 2 MAX. We've lowered the price from $79.99 on the three premium Synths (GS-V [ikmultimedia.com], Syner-V [ikmultimedia.com], M-12 [ikmultimedia.com]) and now all Syntronik 2 Synths are just $49.99 during this special Group Buy.
Purchase and register any Syntronik 2 Synth and choose 2 more for FREE! That's 3 for the price of 1 right from the start.
And it gets better. Since this is a Group Buy, you can grab even more FREE Synths throughout the month. Each time anyone purchases and registers a Syntronik 2 Synth during the promotion, the Group Buy counter increases by 1.
Every time the counter goes up by 100, you'll be able to choose another Synth in your User Area for FREE until we reach our goal of 3,000 registered Synths.
That means you could get Syntronik 2 MAX with all 33 Syntronik Synths for the price of 1 single Synth!
So because more participants equals more FREE Synths: start sharing, tweeting, posting and liking this unique opportunity and spread the word to friends, fans and every music production person you know.
How the Syntronik 2 Group Buy works
  • Buy 1 Get 2 FREE*
  • Buy 1 Get 3 FREE* when 100 registrations are reached
  • Buy 1 Get 4 FREE* when 200 registrations are reached
  • Buy 1 Get 5 FREE* when 300 registrations are reached
  • Buy 1 Get 6 FREE* when 400 registrations are reached
  • Buy 1 Get 7 FREE* when 500 registrations are reached
  • Buy 1 Get 8 FREE* when 600 registrations are reached
  • Buy 1 Get 9 Free* when 700 registrations are reached
  • Buy 1 Get 10 Free* when 800 registrations are reached(current level is now 11 free and growing. I doubt i will continue to update each unlock. If you are interest in ventage synth vst then its a good deal already and expected to get better...)
  • 5/16/2022 Buy 1 get 21 free........... <----
And so on, up to our goal of 3,000 participants, giving you Syntronik 2 MAX with all 33 Synth titles for the price of 1!

Updated posting to show that the free level has moved to getting 5 free, six total. As more people buy, (in increments of 100) it will continue to increase.

Updated again. I'll try to keep the post updated. Currently get six free when buying one.

If you took part in this and have trouble finding your free products, after you register the first one you can go here to see the free ones. As the group buy unlocks more free ones, go back to this page and you will see you also have them. That is, you will have a voucher to purchase a free one that is valued $49.99 or less. Currently the ones that were priced more than this are on sale for $49.99 to allow the promotion to work.

Sorry if I am a little confused, what is the initial outlay of what you have to purchase in regards to the host in Syntronik 2 to get this?

Anyone know if a midi compatible keyboard can plug into the computer to utilize these?
I just got a Yamaha EZ-300, still figuring out how everything works together.

Syntronik 2 CS is free. "Your free entry into Syntronik 2 with 100 presets, 2.4 GB of sound content and full app and plug-in functionality ready for expansion." To get Syntronik 2 CS, download the IK Product Manager and you can install it from there.

The items in this "Group Buy" sale are expansions to add more synths. Syntronik 2 Max, which includes all the expansions, contains 33 synths. So, by the end of this sale, you should be able to get the equivalent of Syntronik 2 Max which retails for $299.99 for the price of a single expansion which is $49.99.

I have done these group buys in the past. They usually hit the target for the maximum of free items. When they don't hit it in the allotted time, I have seen them extend it until they do.

I Googled around and found many people annoyed with the customer service. Here is an interesting discussion about the original Syntronik. Looks like people enjoy the quality of the product overall.

Edit:
Further reading found one of the main complaints is that the download expires and you pay $10 to reactivate the download. Debate about it below. Still find many enjoying the product. The link also shows people who purchased previous products get a free upgrade to the new release.

JR didn't sell me on thees products, his demonstration failed to inspire me to buy. He can make any synth patch sound good, but didn't feel it in these demos.

I tend to go for 80s synths because of my age. I also like making/listening to synthwave music and EDM with those elements in it. (overdrive not as much).


There are demo sounds of all the virtual synths. Some of these synths are $$$ if you wanted the real thing. I have a few 90s synths, but 80's and older go up in price. For example, the Waldorf Microwave revision A has a few examples on eBay for around $2,500 and are 30 years old. Syntronik 2 has the "Megawave" emulation of it. Just like playing emulated video games, they are not 100% perfect copies, but many people find them fun nevertheless. What IK does is take a working example of a synth and samples it (not sure if they pull the roms or take the output) in a way to reproduce it inside their emulation engine software. (They also take guesses at how the orginal hardware worked to shape these samples.) This is legal because the whole idea of the original hardware was to allow you to use the sounds it produced in any way you saw fit. (selling the music you made with it, they 'sell' the sounds they made from it, in a way you can make new sounds from it)

Quote from lylerasputin :

You need to buy one virtual synth module of your choice for the Syntronik 2 synthesizer emulation engine software.(I think these also work with the current copy of SampleTank if you have it) The software (Syntronik 2) that makes the virtual synthesizer work is free. You are buying an emulation module that has sound samples from the recreated synthesizer and tells the Syntronik 2 software what controls, such as oscillators, you can adjust. The price is $49.99, but check to see if you have any JamPoints [ikmultimedia.com] in your account. If you do, you can apply up to $15 (30%) of the price in JamPoints. If you have never done business with IK you most likely will not have points. I had $26 worth to spend, but could only apply 30% discount for one item.

You just need a midi interface into the computer. I did not look at the Yamaha EZ-300 but it's possible it might provide MIDI-IN via USB. Syntronik 2 will work as a standalone application. The idea will be to route the MIDI messages from your keyboard to the Syntronik 2 software. This will depend on if you use Windows or Mac OSx and your interface in the PC.

I don't really see any reviews, just some negative anecdotes. I've not had much issue with the company, although I never had an issue for them to address. My only squawk would be that downloads expire after 180 days and you have to purchase a download renewal product (around $10) to redownload your purchase. Of course, companies like Digital River do this all the time. A cure is to back up the downloads you make, but I can see their point in giving you a limited time to download. A little extra money for them, but bandwidth costs are minimal. As for quality, there are plenty of videos/audio of the emulated synths. Some people are purists, but my old ears can't tell much difference anymore. I have MOTU and Roland rackmount original hardware. Once I record them into the computer, they lose a little in the D/A-> A/D process. I don't have the money to be a purist anyway. I'll pay $50 for sounds I can't get out of my Novation MiniNova or Korg Minilogue. I'll never have a Waldorf Quantum or Arturia PolyBrute. The software will do.

As I mention above, be sure to download all your virtual synth sound files by 180 days or they charge (about $10) fee to refresh your downloads.

I have a bunch of IK stuff. They're... ok, mostly. I really like their T-Racks modules a lot. I loved IK back in the day, like 15 years ago Sampletank was pretty cool. Their ARC system was(is?) pretty cool too (haven't really followed it though in recent years, I think it's up to v3 now.)

I bought the new version of Sampletank 4 Max, and honestly, I would have adored it back around 2008 or so. I mean, for the cost it's not a *terrible* thing to buy by any stretch, but it just also doesn't compare to the quality from other names like Omnisphere or even just buying a basic version of NI Komplete. Plus, I have all the Arturia plugins, and those are pretty tough to beat when it comes to authentic analog synth sounds.

I'll probably pass on this. I have a handful of jam points and $30-50 really isn't a lot considering all you might get, but I just honestly don't know that I'd personally even really bother to install or use it much/at all. I love buying gear, but at some point you gotta acknowledge that you just don't really need something, even if it's a good deal. That's where I'm at anyway. If you're lacking for synth sounds, it's probably not a bad purchase.

Hope this info helps someone.
