Tone2 have recently announced that FireBird, their highly acclaimed VSTi plugin synth for producing true high-end quality audio, has received its last update and is now available as freeware for Windows (previously retailed for $79).
The latest version FireBird 2 provides a powerful, unique, and innovative synthesis architecture for next-generation sounds never heard before. Its innovative user interface provides you with the tools to create impressive sounds with a minimal amount of effort. Featuring an impressive selection of 437 build-in sounds, representing both highly sought-after VA sounds, as well as sounds more specific to Firebird and characterized by its Harmonic Content Morphing synthesis, breathing both life and dynamics into the sounds.
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.
And here’s some technical details of Firebird 2
