Additionally existing osciallators can be morphed or ´modified´ with special algorithms to alter the sound.Gladiator supports up to 18 oscillators per voice with 4x stereo unison and crystal clear sound quality.
The analog modeled filter section uses high-end quality stereo filters, most of which are exclusive to Tone2 products.Gladiator 2 ships with 40 different filter types: Moog, Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass, Vocals, Comb, EQ, FM, AM, Phaser, Resample, and Analog.
