The Dance & Trance Expansion

Dance & Trance adds a large number of exciting new features and a collection of 324 ingeniously programmed sounds by  professional sound designers. It is suitable for a wide range of genres including Dance, Trance, House, Electronica, Ambient, Disco, Synthpop, Drum & Bass, Breakbeat, Industrial, IDM and Techno. 
It's a must have if you're looking for new sounds, or want to expand Gladiator with more features.

Expansion highlights:

  • 324 inspiring, unique presets aimed at miscellaneous genres of electronic music by 8 professional sound designers
  • 8 additional high-end filter types
  • 2 additional analog modeled distortion types
  • A innovative new waveshaper
  • Trancegate
  • 7 additional effects
  • All sounds are properly programmed, not only simple samples. This gives you the complete dynamic range and highest possible sound quality.


LP Dirty1 / LP Dirty2: Two analog modeled filters, with an MS20-like resonance and non-linearities.

LP Voca1/ LP Voca2: Two non-linear filters with resonance which sounds similar to the human voice.

BP Moog: An analog modeled Moog bandpass with soft resonance.

EQ Wide: Soft sounding equalizer which attenuates a broad spectrum.

Allpass: A mystic filter that passes all frequencies but alters the phase of the signal.

Comb-: A comb filter which is useful for flanging or physical modeling sounds.


Asymetric: This distortion simultes non-linearities of old gear. It sounds similar to certain famous products from competing companies...

Soft: This distortion sounds like an old analogue tube with soft saturation.

Synthesis modules

Waveshape2: This innovative dynamic processor is a new step of evolution in waveshaping synthesis. It offers an unique and clean sound and adds some kind of vocaloid character.


The impressive and easy to use stereo Trancegate effect adds 22 different rhythmic patterns to your sounds with a single mouse click. It automatically syncs with your song.

Reverb Ultra: Is a new high-quality reverb algorithm, which sounds very soft and diffuse. It especially suitable for larger rooms and sculpting the proper ambience.

3 Reflection types: The three different reflection types simulte the early reflections of small rooms, reverse echoes and gated reverbs.

Aliaser: This LoFi retro-effect that works by mirroring the signal's spectrum at the cutoff frequency. It drastically alters the sound or adds the mojo of old computer games from the 90s.

Stereo Enhance: Is a stereo width effect, which expands the stereo field, while keeping the bass intact.


The 324 sounds for this expansion are a best-of-selection from more than 1000 sounds which were created by 8(!) professional sound designers: Markus Feil, Bastiaan van Noord, Bryan 'Xenos' Lee, Alusio de Lima, Dajan Izzo, Massimo Bosco, Marco Scherer and Patchen Preston.

Only unique and musically useful sounds were selected and carefully sorted to categories.

324 additional sounds can be accessed directly from the interface (DanceTrance 1-3).

8 additional high-end filter types expand the sonic range of Gladiator. The new innovative filtering technology provides an unheard and very characteristic sound. The filters are exclusive to Gladiator and not available from other companies.  

The 'Asymetric' distortion sounds similar to certain famous products from competing companies...
The 'Soft' distortion is a model of an analogue tube with soft saturation.
The innovative 'Waveshape2' dynamic processor is a new step of evolution in waveshaping. It offers an unique and clean sound.
