Tone2 says VST Icarus does "3D Wavetablle Synthesis"


Recommended Posts

Hate the soundtrack on the promo video, but whatever, it sounds current. YMMV



What is '3D wavetable synthesis'?

We extended the popular traditional wavetable synthesis, which is capable of cross-blending waveforms, with an additional dimension for morphing. Together with many other innovations, this is one of the secrets, why Icarus can create sounds with lots of dynamic expression and movement. Get instantly inspired by a massive amount of fresh sounds and create tracks with an unique character!

Is Icarus the most powerful synthesizer?

Icarus offers a huge sonic range and is extremely versatile, but still remains very easy to use. The exceptionally powerful audio engine is able to reproduce all important synthesizer sounds. As a result you can replace a very expensive collection of hard- and software with a single synthesizer. Furthermore you do not longer have to deal with a large number of different and complicated user interfaces.

This synthesizer can do: All classic synthesis methods, 3D wavetables, morphing, resynthesis of samples and speech, vocoder ... It has: 53 effects, 3x10 stereo oscillators with hypersaw, dual stereo filters with 62 filter types, a powerful wavetable editor...
