Tone2 Gladiator v1.0 released

Tone2 has released Gladiator, its powerful new synthesizer based on Harmonic Content Morphing (HCM) Synthesis. This new synthesis method is based on a large and expandable repertoire of standard waves like pulse, unique synthetic waveforms as well as resynthesis waves like trumpets, organs, pianos and voice samples.

These waves can be modified in real-time by, for example, FM modulation, altering its harmonic structure, syncing, waveshaping, etc. Any modification of a wave can be modulated producing lively shimmery sounds (with only one oscillator).

What is the advantage of Gladiator compared to other synthesizers?
* Real high-end sound quality: Analog, warm, transparent and fat
* Huge sonic range: From classic to unique science fiction
* Excellent value for money
* Low CPU and high reliability
* Gladiator can replace a complete room full of hardware
* Flexibility and expandability
* 750 professional sounds from Vengeance and others
* Gladiator was created by professional dsp scientists
