Tone2 Firebird 2 Is Now Freeware!

Tone2 has set the Firebird 2 as a freeware. I bought this synth while ago (when it was still commercial) and I must say it’s an awesome synth plugin!

Here’s a quote from Tone2 website:

After seven years of faithful service, the time has come to set the bird free. Firebird itself has become vintage and even though it’s no longer profitable to remain a commercial product, we feel that more people should deserve an opportunity to enjoy this sometimes heavily underestimated synthesizer.
Which is why we decided to release one last update and turn the product into freeware (previuosly $79). We want to say a big THANK YOU to all customers who supported the development of Firebird and other Tone2 products, by purchasing our software.

Please feel free to share Firebird 2 with all your friends! We hope you’ll enjoy working with Firebird for many more years.

And here’s some technical details of Firebird 2

  • Very easy to program and easy to use
  • A unique sounding synthesis: Harmonic content morphing (HCM)
  • High sound quality: Warm, transparent
  • 437 hand picked presets included, over 1000 sounds available
  • 84 oscillator types containing 18,000 morphable waveforms
  • 38 different filter types
  • True stereo mode, 4x unison mode, and up to 8 oscillators per voice
  • Can sound like other synthesis methods – additive, subtractive, AM, FM, phase distortion, supersaw, vocoder, sync
  • Can sound like natural instruments like piano, brass, organs…
  • 23 spectral manipulations or “modifiers” can be applied to the oscillators
  • 21 arpeggiator types
  • 13 effect types
  • Skinable user interface

Go download the Firebird 2 on Tone2’s website asap!

Thanks for posting the video. I also appreciate your posting the settings you used to make them. Beautiful sounds.. I’ve started getting the hang of programming it and have already made a few of my own. Maybe you could host a community made soundbank?

i think …… 1. if its a ”run-able/installable” Vst then u run/install, afterwards u go to da sequencer n right click on any channel, go to replace or insert option, u move to the top most where there’s ”more…”, u click it, u click refresh, then click ”fast scan(recommended), u shd be able to see da installed plugin/vst, then check da small box of da vst on da left to enable it, then close….u shd be able to see it wen u want to replace or insert. 2. if its a ”dll.” file then take it direct to da vst/plugin… Read more »

This is really a great plugin, quite good synths. Btw, do you have a different page or category for effect plugins? I have been looking for some good effect plugins that I can put to use. Please let me know if you have any particular page for that. Thanks in advance 🙂
