Tracktion Corporation has introduced Biotek 2, a major update to its sample + synthesis virtual instrument.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
Designed from the ground up to be different, Biotek 2 is a completely original engine with its own unique sound. It is a complete sampling and synthesis workstation offering unlimited sound design in a rare and stimulating environment.
The new Spinal Saw Oscillator ‘goes up to eleven’ detuned sawtooth waves within a single oscillator, delivering a total of forty-four sawteeth per sound layer. Making it perfect for thick leads, huge pads and rumbling synth basses. Biotek 2’s Granular Oscillator extracts sound grains from samples and redistributes them in any density to bring a mighty storm surge of synthesis to this powerful engine.
Its Deep Parameter Control offers intuitive workflow management, so users can quickly and easily build custom instruments with unprecedented sound shaping control.
Biotek’s innovative and comprehensive filtering and effects section offers users surgical precision to further sculpt sound with clinical accuracy.
Biotek architects Wolfram Franke, sound designer Taiho Yamada and synthesist Richard Devine have crafted more than five hundred sounds for the factory patch list. This list includes over one hundred patches created by Divine and forty from film composer Christian Halten. Composer Mike Wall has also added a new collection of audio samples, including natural, environmental and industrial sounds.

Biotek 2 available now for $199, with upgrades from version 1 costing $99.
