Tracktion Software’s new free instrument player plugin could be an Attracktive proposition

Tracktion Corporation has launched a new player instrument based on its BioTek 2 synth engine, and the good news is that it’s giving it away for free.

Known as Attracktive, this adheres to the ‘freemium’ model; a selection of taster sounds comes included, and you can then add more as and when you wish by paying for them. In fact, the software is compatible with all of the company’s sound libraries, including the BioTek 2 expansion packs.

As you’d expect on an instrument of this nature, the interface has been streamlined so that the essential controls are right in front of you, which should make tweaking a breeze. Despite being easy enough for beginners to grasp, though, we’re told that Attracktive has enough depth for more seasoned producers.

You can find out if that’s true by downloading Attracktive for free via the Tracktion Corporation website. It runs on PC and Mac in VST/AU formats.
