Recommended Posts

Today we are totally excited to introduce a new member of the Tone2 Product Family to you.

The High-End Synthesizer-Workstation Icarus2 is one of the most versatile and powerful synthesizers ever built. With 54 different synthesis methods, it boasts a gigantic sonic range. The audio-engine is not only able to create all classic synthesizer sounds, it also can produce a vast range of fresh new sounds.

The innovative '3D wavetable synthesis', which is exclusive to Icarus2, creates a new dimension of sounds with dynamic expression and acoustic movement.

tremely mighty oscillator section, MSEGs, a collection of 1600 production-ready sounds created by professional designers and more!

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 award-winning audio engine offers high-end sound quality and extreme flexibility with low demands on your CPU.

Icarus2 is available as of now for $ 169 as boxed product and as download from Best Service.

Looks really interesting.

I love the wavetable editor in the original icarus - I use that to make wavetables for my other wavetable synths. I prefer the results with the re-synthesis in that vs serum.

Just checked my email and seems it launched back in October 2020 so I guess this is a best service new addition rather than a new product.

Tone 2 seem to have a knack of making nice synths with nice UI's that sound good for at least twice as much money as might seem tempting. Or is that just me?

lol yeah - and their upgrade pricing is pretty steep too - it's £85/$119 for me to upgrade from icarus 1.  that's why I didn't do it when it first came out and then I promptly forgot it even existed!

I could’ve sworn I already had Icarus 2 but that first sentence made me double check hehe

Jason makes a great NKS implementation for Icarus 2.  Highly recommended.

I picked up Tone2 Warlock for cheap recently. It's a pretty good synth that also includes six Tone2 Firebird sound banks. :)

I'm still waiting for them to come out with the 64bit version of Vanguard that they promised was coming...
