Tone2 Audiosoftware

Tone2 has announced the upcoming release of Saurus3, an emulation of analog synthesizers. It covers all important aspects of the most famous and expensive analog synths, but without obstacles or disadvantages.

V3.0 is a major update and will be free for all Saurus users. It includes a big GUI, new features, higher sound-quality, additional patches, better performance and many enhancements.

Saurus3 is downward-compatible with all previous versions.

New features:

  • A big interface is available beside of the normal scale now.
  • It is possible to select from 4 GUI sizes in 'Config'.
  • The synth can create an unlimited number of new sounds with FILE->'Create random patch'.
  • 'Soft clip' is available in the 'Config' section.
  • A scrollbar is visible in the patch-browser if many soundsets are installed.
  • The texts shown in the patch-browser on Mac support hi-dpi drawing.
  • The plugin detects the best GUI-size automatically.
  • Patch-selector shows a checkmark for the current patch and category.
  • Added Digital-Signatures for the installers on PC.
  • Added Notarisation for the installers on Mac.
  • The texts shown in the patch-browser on Mac support hi-dpi drawing.
  • A double-klick on a knob resets it to the default-value.
  • Many new sounds.

Enhancements:

  • The synth has more 'bottom' and sounds warmer.
  • Enhanced sound of Reverb.
  • Replaced Chorus with a better one.
  • More smooth sound of noise.
  • Higher sound-quality in 44 kHz, 48 kHz and 88 kHz sample-rate.
  • Reworked many graphics.
  • Many small enhancements.
  • Fonts are more easy to read.
  • Fine-tuned GUI layout.
  • Enhanced mouse-focus and mouse-wheel support on PC.
  • OSCs in free-mode have a more punchy sound.

Changes:

  • Updated some links.
  • 32-bit on PC is not longer supported. If you still use a 32-bit host, install Saurus 2.6 instead.

Fixes:

  • Workaround for the badly designed architecture of FL Studio. It is not longer necessary to enable 'Use fixed size buffers' to avoid crackles.
  • Fixed a crash that could happen if filter-type is automated.

Price: €59 / $69.
