Hybrid synthesizer

GLADIATOR is Tone2's latest synthesizer using the groundbreaking Harmonic Content Morphing, synthesis method allowing a unique sound which is not possible with subtractive additive or FM synthesis methods alone.
Harmonic Content Morphing allows the harmonics of the oscillators to be altered over time to produce stunning dynamic sounds. Just as sounds inthereal worldhave changes inharmonics over time which makes them sound pleasing and interesting.
GLADIATOR mimics this behaviour by changing the harmonic content of its oscillators over a certain time period

Synthesis types :
* Harmonic Content Morphing (HCM3)
* Frequency Modulation (FM)
* Amplitude Modulation (AM)
* Phase Distortion (PD)
* Pulse Width Modulation (PWM)
* Phase Modulation (PM)
* Oscillator sync

New: Midi learn support

PC: Shift + strg/control + left mousebutton on a knob activates Midi learn mode. If Midi learn is activated the next incoming Midi controler command is assigned to the knob. The Midi learn configuration of all controlers is stored in an automatically generated file 'gladiatormidi.cfg' within the vst directory. If 'gladiatormidi.cfg' is deleted it automatically resets to the default assignments.

Mac: Shift + Apple + left mousebutton on a knob activates Midi learn mode. If Midi learn is activated the next incoming Midi controler command is assigned to the knob. The Midi learn configuration of all controlers is stored in an automatically generated file 'Library/Audio/Plugins/gladiatormidi.cfg'. If 'gladiatormidi.cfg' is deleted it automatically resets to the default assignments.

New features, changes, fixes and improvements:
* Smoother overall sound with more 'analog hardware-like' feeling
* More punchy envelopes
* Drastically improved sound of Chorus and Ensemble effect. Replaced them with an 'analog modeled' version.
* Additional lowpass filter: LP Superfat
* New modifier: 'Time Delay' delays an oscillator spectrum
* New modifier: 'Pitch Harmonizer' stacks up to 16 additional harmonics to an osciallator spectrum
* New modifier: 'Pitch Octaver' stacks up to 8 oscillators which are tuned in octaves
* Improved Moog filter: Analog modelling with self oscillation support for high resonance
* Smoother filter sound: Comb+, Double Comb
* Improved LP 12dB Analog, BP 12dB Analog, HP 12dB Analog: More silky treble
* 35 additional sounds
* Reworked and resorted factory presets
* Slightly improved psychoacoustical processing
* Full version: User name is shown above preset browser
* Improved robustness against user errors and corrupt installations
* A warning is displayed if a user tries to register with the wrong keyfile
* Renamed filters: "Comb1"->"Comb+","Comb2"->"Double Comb"
* The hotkey 'm' resets the mod matrix (Note: Not all hosts support this)
* Gladiator banks (glb files) contain now up to 4096 presets
* Fixed (Fullversion on Mac): Username sometimes was not displayed correctly
* Fixed a rarely appearing crash that could appear with certain system configurations (PC)
* Two spectra were missing because of invalid filenames (Mac)
* Fixed a possible crash with Midi CC 121
sound Gladiator v 2.1 Jun 5, 2009 MacOS X UB
Improvements in sound quality:
* Drastically improved low notes oscillator sound
* Improved reverb sound: Softer and more diffuse reverb tails
* Improved psychoacustical processing
* Improved spectral slope of low frequencies to reduce gibbs effect for more 'analog' sound
* Improved sound quality of intelligent microtuning (IQM): Warmer sound for long release times
* Extended dB range of master volume knob
* Reworked existing factory presets: Warmer sound

New features:
* 3 new phase modulators for analog sounding pulsewidth modulation: PWM, PWM alt, phase shift
* Added song position sync support for LFO 1/2 ('bpm' has to be set to 'on' and 'retrigger' to 'off')
* Added split keyboard support; new modulation sources: Low keys, High keys
* Added new 'split' arp mode which applies ARP on high keys only and leaves low keys for basses
* 18 new factory sounds

Changes, fixes and improvements:
* Faster loading time of PC full version
* Demo version: Nag Voice only every 9 minutes instead of every minute
* Improved host compatibility: Cubase 4 & 5, Orion, Fruity Loops, Logic
* Fixed (PC): Wrong version number was displayed in Cubase
* Fixed: Microglitch in volume envelope
* Fixed (Full version, Mac): 'Demoversion' instead of user name was displayed for 2 seconds after loading
* Fixed (PPC Mac): 'Spec format' and 'Spec clean' modifier could output silence
* Fixed (FUll version, Mac): 'save all' could crash Gladiator2
* Changed (Mac): Focus of mouseover when 'show editor' was set to 'off'
modulation Gladiator v 2.0 Feb 18, 2009 MacOS X UB
Most important changes:
* The HCM3 engine extends HCM synthesis with complex phase manipulation. It provides warmer sounds, noisy sounds, 'analogue' sounds and a bigger sonic range.

* New quality mode: 'Linear' provides highest precision rendering with linear phase for audiophiles and scientific applications
* 6657 additional waveforms OSC 1A-4D
* 25 additional waveforms for OSC 5
* OSC 5 can be played as additional subosc
* New and improved filters
* 6 new unision modes
* Separate pan for OSCs

Perso j'utilise pour ce type de son Nexus 2 et je crois qu'on ne verra pas mieux de si tôt.
Cela Dis Gladiator m'as tout de même impressionné, il a des sons également très intéressant.
