I'm not a pro musician but purchased Warlock last week and have I found it to be totally awesome, has a plethora of pretty neat sounds that are not only in varied abundance but they also sound very individual and inspiring compared to some other synth brands. All that with a neat and compact Ui together with an irresistible price has made this the very first Tone2 VST synth I've purchased. I'm heading over to Icarus today to purchase that and then Electra. I can't give a professional review but I can say I don't regret buying Warlock and I'll definitely come back when I've mastered the arts of music production with these very inspiring synth softwares at Tone2 for a professional review. Thank you Markus. Have a blessed week. Steph.

It's not Firebird 3.0.

It's the same shell, but different engine.

More powerful and modern.

Use analog filters for hardware like sound.

Incredible sound and simplicity.

This synthesizer is a hidden beast.

The randomize feature is amazing and generates really usable and interesting sounds in an instant.

This is the best software synthesizer I have owned in my life and I would recommend it to anyone from beginners to synth masters.

Vanguard/Slayer < Firebird < Warlock.

This synth is decades of work, so many useable pre-sets. A very useable "randomize" button that can just make good useable pre-sets for you on the fly.

The "filter" is just like on it's big brother Icarus, is perfect for 303 acid warping any sound very easily. It's such joy, FUN is great word to describe this synth.

I still see videos on Youtube about people getting nostalgic about how good Vanguard was back Ze day, and is no longer available. :(.

Warlock is here today, far more polished and useable.

Just get the demo and hit the randomize button and watch a whole afternoon disappear. :).

Great synth, clean and analog sound if you want it, you can create some nice bass sounds and punchy leads and unique rich sounds. There are no pianos, no drums, no guitars, no acoustic instruments can be created except for some flute or something you can program and you cannot import wave-tables or samples. More than 2,000 sounds included, that's a lot! The effects are a bit disappointing, but Tone2 will surely be able to improve them in future updates, anyway, the clean sound without effects is fantastic and you can run it through the effects you normally use in any DAW. Electra's 2 FX are superior but Electra costs 100 bucks more. It has excellent oscillators material, no more than 84 and not all of them sound good but there are some great ones. There is no FX quantity control for each oscillator [ yet ], nor pan control, but there is the possibility to give it a 'mono' or 'stereo' setting with different configurations that sounds excellent. Analog quality 'sub' oscillators give a lot of body to some sounds and Waldorf/Virus/Moog emulations are possible and even surpass a good analog synth [super punchy fat analog basses and spicy leads]. The sound is 'in - your - face', bright, elegant and loud, and it could be also, dirty and sweet analog but be careful with the volume in some effect combinations can distort some times. There is no sound compressor and no equalization for now. The interface is impeccable, and well laid out. Hopefully it will incorporate 1000 more waves in future updates =).

I recommend it for anyone who wants to incorporate a great, big, fat and punchy sounding synth to their tracks, another awesome hit from Tone2! Impressive Synth! Long live Warlock ♥²
