Tone2 release Gladiator soft synth

Bold claims come from soft synth heads Tone2 this week as they release the powerhouse Gladiator synth with revolutionary HCM synthesis. The latest acronym stands for Harmonic Content Morphing, allowing waves to be modulated producing lively shimmering sounds, alongside more traditional FM and AM techniques. The 'do it all' synth could easily become a one stop shop for dance producers and Mac and PC users can get in on the action for £99 from the download store at Tone2 Audio demos and a PC software demo are also up on the site.
