Tone2 Fire­Bird 2

Though they’ve been given some stick for a ten­dency to­wards hy­per­bole, Tone2 have al­ways been in­no­va­tive and ex­per­i­men­tal – some­times to a fault, as in the case of Fire­Bird 2, a cool and shame­lessly dig­i­tal syn­the­siser that makes use of Tone2’s HCM (Har­monic Con­tent Mor­ph­ing) os­cil­la­tors to pro­vide a deep, mov­ing and ut­terly en­gag­ing sound. It was a weird and won­der­ful in­stru­ment, but it never quite achieved the pop­u­lar­ity it de­served. Even­tu­ally Tone2 would dis­con­tinue – but not drop – Fire­Bird 2, in­stead re­leas­ing it for free to any and all who might still be rock­ing a 32-bit Win­dows host. Still well worth a test­flight!
