What is the Difference in Sonik Synth 2 and SampleTank® 2?
SampleTank® 2 is open to import additional sample material from any SampleTank library as well as WAV, AIFF, SDII samples, AKAI® S1000- 3000, SampleCell® instruments, and more. Sonik Synth 2 is a closed sound module meant for its sounds to be single and combi patches based on its massive included 8- gigabyte soundset.
The included soundset of Sonik Synth 2 and SampleTank 2 XL are completely different: Sonik Synth 2’s sounds have more of a vintage and modern synthesizer theme as well complex combi textures and electronics sounds while SampleTank 2 XL’s sounds cover all the various types of individual multi-samples for music production such as instruments and loops, with more focus on acoustic and electric sounds.
Both offer diverse compositional power right of the box, and the two products are designed to compliment each other for building the ultimate sound system, in fact Sonik Synth 2 sounds can be opened by SampleTank 2 or the two plug-ins can work independently within the same sequencer session.
What is the difference in Sonik Synth 2 and Sonic Synth?
Sonik Synth 2 is a complete sound module plug-in with over 8 gigs of sounds and the largest archive of vintage synthesizers ever assembled as well as a full synthesizer workstation.
The original Sonic Synth was a workstation sound set, 2 gigs in size, that shipped only with a SampleTank® 1.0 LE engine. The new Sonik Synth 2 has it’s own interface and a dedicated focus on sound design that makes it far beyond just a sequel to the original Sonic Synth.
Why is it called a synth workstation?
Traditionally, sample based synthesizers that cover all of your compositional needs from synths to pianos to guitars to drums and more are termed workstation synthesizers in hardware. These workstations often include a limited midi sequencer.
With Sonik Synth 2 being a multi-platform plug-in you might say it is the guts of a synthesizer workstation on steroids, on par with your equally powerful software sequencer host.
Where do Sonik Synth 2 sounds come from?
World-renowned sound developer, Sonic Reality, has pooled together from their massive archive vintage synthesizers and keyboards, acoustic and electric stringed instruments, ethnic instruments, orchestral instruments, vocal textures, and other instruments to bring them all together as elements in this mega workstation synthesizer.
Dave Kerzner, founder and CEO of Sonic Reality, sampled even the most esoteric and rare instrument finds to bring you one of the most comprehensive homage to synthesizers ever created as a virtual instrument including Arps, Moogs, Obies, Jupiters, Gleeman, Voyetra, Serge, EMS Synthi, Prophets, Trons, Rhodes, Wurlies, B3s all in one mega plug-in!
