The reviews in various audio-magazines proof that Icarus2 is one of the most versatile, impressive sounding synths on the market. The exceptionally Powerful Audio-Engine is able to create all important synthesizer sounds in high-end quality. Icarus2 can do a gigantic amount of synthesis-methods: 3D wavetables, classic wavetables, resynthesis of samples, vocoder, additive, subtractive, analog, FM with up to 6 operators, formant synthesis, waveshaping, PWM, sync, ringmod, AM, noise, physical-modeling, phase-distortion, granular, time-stretching, pitch-shifting, samples, harmonic-morphing, FFT-filtering, lofi, import of custom waveforms and wavetables and many other innovative modes, exclusive to Icarus2. Get instantly inspired by the massive number of fresh, original sounds and create tracks with unique and individual characteristics!
The sound-quality of Icarus2 easily surpasses conventional synths, but you don't need to own a high-end computer to be able to use it. The algorithms for this synthesizer were developed and optimized by an experienced DSP-expert. That's why Icarus2 offers the best possible sound quality together with low CPU demands.

Oscillators & Hypersaw

Icarus2 offers three oscillator-blocks with true stereo-architecture. Each oscillator-block itself again can contain up to 10 detuned hypersaw-oscillators. We've expanded the popular hypersaw concept with a stereo-processing, precise phase-control, punch and the ability to make single oscillators play chords. 37 different modes are available, including, hypersaw, supersaw, stereo hypersaw, unison, stacking, chords and flanging. The hypersaw-modes can be combined with any kind of wavetable, waveform or synthesis-method.

The algorithms for this synthesizer were developed and optimized by an experienced DSP-expert. The sound quality of Icarus2 easily surpasses conventional synths, but you don't need to own a high-end computer to be able to use it. That's why Icarus offers the best possible sound quality and low CPU demands.

Filters

Our synthesizer flagship offers 63 exciting filter types. Icarus2 comes with the most potent filter section available on the market. It's a best-of selection of over 300 filter algorithms developed by Dipl. Inf. Univ. Markus Krause during the last 15 years. Many filter types are exclusive and unavailable from other companies, resulting in a wide range of unique sounds that other synthesizers cannot produce. All filters are musical useful and have different sonic characteristics. We did not include similar-sounding types.
There are two modular filter blocks available. Each one is equipped with proper stereo architecture, flexible routing, and multi-mode filters. Two stereo-distortion sections, each with nine different modes, allow you to shape the sound further.

An animated display shows the frequency response and gives you immediate visual feedback. This makes it very easy to understand and tweak the filter behavior.
Since an experienced DSP expert created all filters, they offer high-end sound quality and low CPU requirements.

Arpeggiator

The included arpeggiator instantly creates inspiring and beautiful melodies. Working with the powerful arpeggiator is simple: Just input your notes into the note-sequencer. The arpeggiator supports advanced features such as glides, swing & shuffle, split, smart note-sorting, and matrix integration and gives you precise control over play direction and velocity. Comfortable playing aids like auto-chord speed up the production process and assists you whenever you need it. Don't feel like programming your patterns? Just load one of the many pattern templates.

Drums

Icarus2 has been extended with a drum sequencer. It is an easy-to-use but powerful X0X-style sequencer module. It comes with a wide variety of drum sounds, noises, and waveforms. You can also import your samples and save your templates. An extensive collection of 100 drum patterns created by professional designers is included. The drum-sequencer supports swing, shuffle, loop-length, effect-send, key-split, roll, mono-samples, stereo-samples, looped samples, and looped waveforms. Your sounds can be passed through punchy, BPM-synced envelopes, which allow you to create impressive 'gated-drum-sounds' easily. You can stretch WAV Files with drum loops or any other rhythmic content so that they automatically sync to BPM.
Furthermore, the drum-sequencer is not only limited to playing drum sounds. It is also a tiny multi-timbral synthesizer that can play looped samples or waveforms with or without pitch-tracking. It also comes with an intelligent auto-accompaniment that automatically resolves the chord you are currently playing and plays a bass line that 'fits'.

 

Effects

Icarus2 comes with an imaginative and flexible effects section. Fifty-four different effects, feedback, and a limiter can be combined in modular slots to build new and exciting results. You can create your custom effects which can be saved and loaded separately.
The innovative ducking module can make the mix sound more transparent and lush. It dynamically adjusts the volume of the effect mix and prevents delays from clashing with the original signal.

Microtuning

Icarus2 offers 21 different micro tuning modes. The engine can slightly detune certain voices to make your chords sound fatter, harmonically rich, and warm. We also developed several innovative algorithms that are no longer limited to the usage of a specific tonality. Icarus can analyze what you are playing in real-time and can enhance your chords automatically.

Glitch-sequencer / Trancegate

Icarus2 has been extended with a grid-based glitch-sequencer. You can chop your sounds and create modern glitchy pitch stop, trance gate, or stuttering effects. 'The Glitch' works similar to a multi-effect sequencer. The incoming audio is passed through 10 different effect modules. Up to 16 segments control each effect to adjust the effect's parameter.

Furthermore, adjusting the speed, groove, routing, mix, smoothness, and loop length are possible. Random buttons allow you to create new sequences quickly. It is also possible to load and save your templates.

Equalizer

Optionally an innovative equalizer with dynamic bass boost and psychoacoustic processing is provided to make your sound sit right in the mix. The EQ is easy to tweak since a  display visualizes the frequency response in real-time.

 

Interface

Icarus2 offers a huge sonic range, is highly versatile, but remains easy to use. Animated displays give you visual feedback. You can instantly see and hear the results of your actions.
Context-sensitive tool-tips explain the function of the control that you're currently tweaking. The user-friendly and accessible interface makes tweaking easy for anyone, regardless of skill level or experience.

The GUI can be displayed in 12 different sizes and three scales: Small, average, or giant. It is also possible to hide parts of the interface, like the keyboard, when you don't need it.

The customize-able interface allows you to select your favorite color from 26 schemes.

Patch-browser

The patch browser gives you instant access to a massive and inspiring library with production-ready sounds. Icarus2 comes with an astounding collection of 1600 (!) hand-picked patches. Each sound has been carefully built by a professional sound designer and crafted with a lot of love and great attention to detail. The patches are very easy-to-mix because they've been carefully EQed, pre-mastered, and perfectly synced with your track tempo.
Since all patches have been sorted into categories, you can quickly find what you need. You can tag your favorites with a ranking system.
An on-screen keyboard allows you to audition to the sounds.

Modulation

Spice up your tracks with exciting movement! Do you want to use the LFO to wobble your sound? Simply drop it onto a knob, and you've got it. Modulation can be as simple or complex as you want. Use drag & drop or the modulation matrix to connect dozens of sources to all-important sound parameters. Modulate almost any parameter with audio-rate speed from internal modulation sources like LFOs, punchy envelopes, step sequencers, and many MIDI signals.

MIDI

Icarus2 supports MPE (Midi Polyphonic Expression), which can add several additional dimensions of dynamic expression to the sounds.
We've also included midi-learn, so assigning CCs is as simple as a right mouse click.

Multistage-envelope-generators

Two MSEGs are available as additional modulation sources. The MSEGs can be operated as LFO or envelope and allow you to create any shape you can imagine. The MSEGs offer the highest precision, support frequencies up into the audio range, and have been designed with the aspect of musical usefulness.
Anything is possible: The MSEGs can be synced to BPM, sync with the arpeggiator, or run freely. Triads or dotted rhythms are also supported. You can define loop points and start points. You can delay or fade the MSEGs. You can move, add or delete points with your mouse. You can bend lines upwards or downwards to change their shape or create precise rectangular curves. The MSEGs can be edited entirely freely, or you can snap points to a grid of selectable size. It is also possible to draw triangles, bars, or ramps.

3D Wavetables

The award-winning '3D Wavetable Synthesis' creates sounds impossible with other synths and reveals a new level of dynamic expression. We have extended the classic wavetable synthesis, which can cross-blend waveforms with an additional morph-dimension. You can use 54 morph-modes to further shape and modulate the sound. The morph modes are not limited to traditional waveshaping methods. We also included a vast range of innovative and exclusive synthesis methods, which are not available from other companies. This results in a wide range of unique sounds that other synthesizers cannot produce. Get inspired by unheard signature sounds and give your productions a special character!

Wavetable-editor

Icarus comes with the most potent wavetable editor available on the market. You can use it to create your waveforms and wavetables or edit the ones included in Icarus. A random generator allows you to create an infinite number of new and musically useful wavetables with a single mouse click. The spectral editor turns Icarus into an additive synthesizer, giving you precise control over the partials and phase. You can also draw your waveforms using the mouse.
Icarus' flexible, compact and open file format allows sound designers and artists to easily create their sound sets, waveforms, and wavetables. Many common file formats are supported. It is even possible to import and export wavetables or waveforms from-and-to other synthesizers.

In Icarus, all wavetables are automatically stored within your patches and songs, so you don't have to worry about managing any additional files on your hard disc.
The comfortable editor includes over 100 professional tools to tweak wavetables. You get basic features like cutting, mixing, and filtering, as well as advanced tools such as de-noising, enhancing, resynthesis, vocoder, spectral modification, and phase manipulation.
Rebuild any sound with a SINGLE mouse-click

With Icarus, anyone can build fantastic sounds quickly and easily. Traditional resynthesis methods require a deep knowledge of sample editing in order to achieve good results. It needs time-consuming pre-processing with a sample editor and precisely tuned samples.
We have taken care of these problems for you and have developed entirely new algorithms. Icarus' innovative wavetable-resynthesis can rebuild sounds with a single mouse click! It works with nearly any kind of audio material and produces high-quality results. Simply click the button, select a WAV file and Icarus will automatically create a patch which sounds like the original. Optionally, you can further shape your sound with morphing, BPM-synchronization, time-stretching, the filters, the effects, or any other module.
Traditional sample-import, auto-tuning, beat-slicing, pitch-shifting, noise-reduction, and granular playback is also supported.
All waveforms, wavetables, and samples are automatically stored within your patches or songs. This means you don't have to worry about missing files on your hard drive or broken song projects.

Why do you need vocals to create a chart hit?

If you listen to popular songs, you will notice that nearly all of them use a lot of vocals. We are naturally drawn to those sounds, as they reflect the spoken word. However, adding vocals to your tracks is a demanding task: You need a singer, a microphone, a recording studio, a wealth of experience, and patience...
Icarus can take care of your work since it can sing chants for you. Simply pick one of the vocoder patches and play a melody. These sounds are not just a bunch of 'vocal samples' - this is real speech-synthesis. These vocalic chants are never out-of-tune. Magically they can automatically synchronize to your song's BPM-rate!
With the built-in vocoder you can also create your own phrases. The top quality vocoder module has 1024 bands and is very easy to use: Simply click on 'Vocoder' and select a WAV 2 containing speech. Icarus will analyze it and automatically create a patch. Optionally, you can further shape your sound with morphing, the filters, the effects or any other module. Playing the sound forwards, backward, formant shifting, BPM-sync, time-stretching and looping is also possible.
