Discover the wonderful world of synthesis!
Don't miss the experience of creating your own sounds! With Icarus and a little patience anyone can become a great sound designer, since tweaking the intuitive user interface is fun and very easy to learn. Many animated displays give you visual feedback and make tweaking accessible to anyone, regardless of the skill level. With Icarus you can always instantly see and hear what you're doing.
The innovative resynthesis function in Icarus allows you to rebuild nearly any sound with a single mouse-click: Simply click on the resynthesis button and select a wav file. Like magic, Icarus will automatically assemble a patch, which sounds very close to the original sound. Our new algorithm gives better results and is easier to use than traditional methods.
You can shape your sounds with many exciting morph modes, rich oscillators, a massive amount of wonderful filters and a modular effect section.
A mighty wavetable editor is available for experts. It includes a massive amount of professional tools to tweak wavetables, like an additive spectrum editor or the possibility to paint waveforms with the mouse.
If you design your own sounds, they are automatically stored within your tracks. There will be no broken songs because there are files missing on your hardisc. This means that your musical creations will be always safe. Also, your own patches, waveforms and wavetables can be saved to fxp or wav format. This makes it easy for you to manage your own creations. Exchange your sounds with friends, export them to 3rd party software or create your own sets.
Spice up your tracks with exciting movement
Modulation is where the true power of the synth emerges. Do you want to use the LFO to wobble your filter? Simply turn a knob and you're on your way.
Modulation can be as simple or complex as you want it to be. By using drag&drop or the modulation matrix, Icarus allows you to connect dozens of modulation sources to all important sound parameters. Modulate almost any parameter, well into audio-rate speed, from internal modulation sources like LFOs, punchy envelopes, gates, step sequencers, and a wide variety of MIDI signals. We've also included midi-learn, so assigning CC's is as simple as a right-click.
Is Icarus ready for the future?
Icarus comes with free personal support as well as frequent, free updates and improvements. It will be extended with new features and additional sounds regularly. This synthesizer has been designed in a way that it can be expanded easily. The open structure allows you, us and 3rd party developers to extend it with our own content.
