Tone2 Icarus 1.6

Many of today’s music productions are influenced by traditional ‘Black Music’. Harmonic and rhythmic structures of various ‘Black Music’ genres are frequently used in modern music. This soundset features a wide range of legendary and magnificent styles like Soul, Funk, Disco, Reggae, Ragga, Dub, Dancehall, Hip Hop and Trap.

The ability of Icarus to precisely synchronize loops to BPM, makes it very easy to combine the included sounds. As a result, it is possible to create complex tracks rapidly.

The sounds have been programmed by Jens Dibowski. He works as a music producer, composer and sound-designer. Jens has also designed sounds for Kurzweil and Yamaha in the past.
