Synapse Audio has announced that Toxic 2.5, its high quality FM and analog modelling synthesizer, is now available as a VST plug-in. It contains a new preset bank, several bug fixes and features improved performance using SSE2.
Toxic is a 6-operator-FM synthesizer with alias-free oscillators, warm filters and precise envelopes. All controls are interpolated, allowing you to tweak all parameters smoothly in realtime without clicks.
A powerful effects section with an Equalizer, a Distortion unit and two Chorus, Flanger and Delay units completes this generator.
The Toxic interface was very carefully designed - despite having many parameters. Toxic features a very streamlined GUI, allowing rapid access to all relevant parameters - no hidden pages or endless searching for a specific parameter. Producers who do not like to program their own sounds from scratch will be happy to see that the Toxic comes with 10 banks full of ready-to-use presets.
Pricing & Availability
Priced at $49, Toxic is available now as a VST instrument plug-in for Windows. Toxic has also been added to Synapse Audio's VST synth bundle, which now contains 5 VST instruments - Toxic, Hydra, Poly-850, Plucked String and Scorpion. Existing synth pack users can grab the instrument free of charge from the service area. A demo version is available.
