Tone2 Updates Gladiator Soft Synth, Releases Mac Version
Tone2 has updated their Gladiator to version 1.1 for Windows and released a Mac OS X version. To learn more about Tone2 Gladiator, read our original announcement.
New Features & Enhancements:
â€¢ The Mac version of Gladiator is available. It is available as universal binary for Intel Mac and Power PC. It supports audio unit (AU) and VST 2.4.
â€¢ Improved time for saving/loading songs in Cubase and other hosts.
â€¢ Opening the plug-in is 250% faster. When the plugin is started for the first time it creates cache files (.1 .2 .3 .4) within the Gladiator_data directory. These cache files help to improve the performance.
â€¢ Drastically reduced the hard disc space for saving songs in Cubase and other hosts (previously 1.5 Mb per instance, now 850 byte).
â€¢ Removed a glitch after switching through presets.
â€¢ Slightly reduced memory usage.
â€¢ LFO1/2 “retrigger off” was renamed to “random phase”
â€¢ The word “preprocessing” appears in the HCM windows.
â€¢ Improved sound: Very low played oscs have more “treble”.
â€¢ Improved sound: IQM light is switched to “light” by default. Gladiator sounds less static.
â€¢ Fixed a buffer overflow in the “Time Varismooth” modifier.
â€¢ The preset format has changed: Hosts save in chunk format now (fxb/fxp). Gladiator presets are now glp/glb files.
Tone2’s Gladiator costs $199 / €149. More information on Tone2 Gladiator virtual synth.
