Tone2 posts in the past some informations about their upcoming new product Icarus – 3D Wavetable Synthesizer
Tone2 Icarus will come with a powerful dual stereo filter section.
It will include over 60 different sounding filter types: Vocal, Fractal, Analog, Digital, Resonator, EQ, Ringmod, AM, FM, Phaser, Comb, Z-Plane, Multimode, Resampling, … All filters offer the highest possible sound quality and many of them will be exclusive to Icarus.
The flexible routing allows you to route every oscillator individually to filter1, filter2 or bypass. An animated display visualizes the frequency response in realtime. Two stereo distortion sections with 9 different modes allow you to shape the sound further.
Most synthesizers which are advertized with ‘resynthesis’, give poor results, are difficult to use and suffer from heavy artefacts. We have taken care of these problems and developed completely new algorithms: The resynthesis of Icarus works properly on nearly any kind of material, is very easy to use and gives high quality results. Simply click on the button, select a wav file and wait for some seconds. Icarus will automatically create a patch, which sounds very similar to the original sound.
Additonally you can use 54 different morphmodes and a large toolset to shape the sound further: Waveshaping, timestreching, pitchshifting, granulizing, stacking, PWM, formant shifting, bpm syncing, phase distortion, reversing, ringmodulation, sync, rearranging, fm, spectral editing, looping, denoising, mixing,… – literally anything is possible.
Tone2 Icarus will come with a powerful effect section. 3 Modular slots, each with 53 different effect types will be available. You will be able to create your own custom effects, which can be loaded and saved from the harddisc.
The flexible routing will allow you to route single oscillators to different effects. The innovative ducking mode can change the dry/wet mix of delays and reverbs dynnamically, as a result you get a more transparent mix. The additional feeback section allows you to route the output back to the input. This way you can create completely new effects, like a delayed-phaser or a feebacked-vibrato.
