TONE2 72459 overview

  • 1Description

Available for download, Best Service Tone2 Gladiator 3 is a virtual instrument that expands upon the previous version (Gladiator 2) to provide you with multiple methods of synthesis, all of which can be combined and affected in a variety of ways. In addition to the old stalwarts in synthesis such as pulse width modulation (PWM) and frequency modulation (FM), Gladiator 3 also includes Tone2's proprietary Harmonic Content Morphing synthesis, which allows the harmonic content of an oscillator to morph over time by loading not just samples, but 256 spectral snapshots at once. Furthermore, you can blend up to five oscillators at any one time. Within an oscillator, you can control the start position and speed of the content morphing.

Gladiator 2 features over 1200 preset patches, as well as an arpeggiator, a step sequencer, and a variety of filters and effects, many of which can be synced to the tempo of your host DAW. This software is compatible with Mac and Windows platforms, and can operate in standalone mode (Windows only), as well as within AU and VSTi formats.

New Features in Gladiator 3

  • Select from four different interface sizes
  • New patch browser
  • Information tags about patches displayed in patch browser

    • Noise: Jumps to a random section
    • V50%: Ping-pong-loops 50% of the spectrum
    • V20%: Ping-pong-loops 25% of the spectrum
  • Additional phase-modifiers:
    • Zzzap: Sound like a laser
    • Boing: Sound like a reverse laser
    • Odd noise and Even noise: Adds noise to the spectrum
    • Odd 90 and Even 90: Sounds similar to a sub-oscillator
  • Extended semitone-range for the arpeggiator from -23 to +23
  • Added cross-product compatibility: Selecting Save and then Export exports the sound of osc 1 as an Icarus-compatible wavetable in WAV format
