Toxic Biohazard from Image-Line is a the company's latest version of their hybrid software synthesizer, featuring an optimized engine for improved sound quality, with even more accurate wave shapes, and quicker rendering times. Modeled amplitude and filter envelopes deliver a real world sound and are rendered real-time without any interpolation, thus avoiding noise artifacts.

The hybrid synthesis engine combines the best of FM (frequency modulation) and subtractive synthesis and complements them with a warm, analog-modeled filter and a set of built-in effects. High-resolution DSP processing produces sound with an extremely low noise threshold. Additionally, the software includes a 64-step sequencer that can be split into two 32-step modules.

Six, completely alias-free oscillators, well tuned for all sampling rates and calculated at extremely high speeds, keeping CPU usage to a minimum
Oscillators come equipped with spectrum analysis technology, allowing users to create custom waveforms by loading WAV or AIFF format sound files for the use of both synthetic and acoustic waveforms within the FM engine
Each oscillator also comes with 32 built in "classic" waveforms, each shown to be the most useful in FM synthesis
Two assignable LFOs
The effect modules are designed to give the user access to several types of effects, from aggressive, tube-like distortion, to warm stereo delay, reverb, flanger and phaser effects
Tape delay emulation is based on non-fixed delay buffer sizes
Eight-band graphic EQ
64-step sequencer which can be divided into two independent, 32-step modules to allow double-polyphonic patterns
"Smart Sequencer" technology defines a played chord and tunes the pattern accordingly
The sequencer also allows for playback of the programmed sequence from single notes - simply holding one chord can virtually create an arrangement

    Comments about Image-Line Toxic Biohazard - Hybrid Virtual Synthesizer:

    Image-Line always made products with great presets and Toxic Bioharzard isn't an exception. Although it does take some reading and tinkering to learn how to customize your sounds, you get the hang of it after a while.
    The only problem I ran into was buying it for my Mac. I ended up spending quite a few hours on Image-Line's website trying to figure out how to download, install, and authorize the vitrual instrument - I even had to download a third party program to unlock the registration key. But over all it's a great product.
