Tone2 Releases Icarus2 Synthesizer Workstation

This monster new soft synth from Tone2 is packed with features and it's available at a discount for a limited time. Here's the details.  

Icarus2 is a powerful synthesizer-workstation. The audio-engine provides a huge sonic range, offers true high-end sound-quality and creates a wide range of sounds impossible with other synths. Icarus2 ships with 1600 hand-picked patches created by professionals.

Icarus2 offers 54 different synthesis methods. The audio engine is not only able to create all classic synthesizer sounds. It can produce a vast range of fresh sounds, which are impossible with other products. The innovative '3D wavetable synthesis', which is exclusive to Icarus, creates a new dimension of sounds with dynamic expression and acoustic movement. Besides that many other unique synthesis-methods are available that can be combined freely.

Icarus comes with the largest collection of filters available within a synthesizer. The audio-engine offers many powerful features like a drum-sequencer, a built-in vocoder, re-synthesis, a glitch-sequencer, the most advanced wavetable-editor available, an extremely mighty oscillator section, MSEGs.

However, the synth still remains very easy to use. A comfortable interface with drag & drop support gives you instant help, visual feedback and immediate acoustic results. The audio engine offers high-end sound quality and extreme flexibility with low demands on the CPU.
