Tone2 updates the PC and Mac versions of Nemesis

Tone2 Audiosoftware

Tone2 Audio has updated the PC and the Mac version of their digital synthesizer Nemesis (v2.1/v2.2).

The updates are major updates, which are available for free. They add a VST3 version for PC, native Apple M1 ARM support, many enhancements and new features.

New features:

  • Added a VST3 version for PC.
  • You can select from 3 different installation types: Minimal (VST2 only), Default (VST2 + Standalone) and Full (VST2 + VST3 + Standalone).
  • Added a Microsoft-approved certificate to the installer.
  • HiDPI support for the VST3 version.
  • AudioUnit version supports M1 native.
  • VSTi version supports M1 native.
  • Help->'Show version info' displays the mode in which the plugin is running (ARM/Intel).


  • Higher sound-quality in 44 kHz, 48 kHz and 88 kHz sample-rate.
  • More precise timing.
  • New microtuning algorithm that detects and enhances a wide range of chords.
  • More smart detection of the VST2 path.
  • Slightly higher performance.
  • More robustness.
  • Further optimisation to prevent denormalisation.
  • Much faster loading times on M1 Macs.
  • The native M1 support results in 20% lower CPU use compared to Rosetta2 Mode.
  • More responsive GUI on M1 Macs.
  • Several small enhancements.


  • Resynthesis of waveforms did not work as expected.
  • M1 Macs did not update the GUI properly when the selector-button for the LFO type was pressed.
  • Coordinates of the knob-contextmenu were incorrect when the large GUI was used.
  • Tooltips did not work with Dark Mode with Big Sur.
  • Big Sur could show an incorrect mouse-pointer.
  • Workaround for the 'unusual' designed audio architecture of FL Studio. It is not longer necessary to enable 'Use fixed size buffers' to avoid crackles.
  • Workaround for a bug of Big Sur where new AudioUnits are only detected after a reboot.
  • Fixed a rarely appearing crash.


  • Updated some links.
  • AudioUnit is now an AUv2 plugin.
  • AudioUnit and VSTi are now a Universal Binary for Intel and M1.
  • Minimum MacOS version is now 10.11. If you still use an older version you must stick with Nemesis v2.1.
