New Synth Promises Evolved FM Synthesis

Tone 2 Nemesis for Mac and Windows features NeoFM synthesis      02/12/13

Tone 2 has released their Nemesis synth for Mac and Windows that they say takes FM synthesis to its next evolutionary step: NeoFM synthesis.

A spokesperson told us, "Nemesis includes traditional FM synthesis as well as a completely new and improved approach to FM called NeoFM synthesis. NeoFM and several other innovative synthesis methods are exclusively available in Nemesis. NeoFM is extremely powerful and intuitive. It is now easier than ever to get very good sounding results. The sound quality of Nemesis surpasses conventional synths, making it easy to locate the sonic sweet spot. Nemesis features an easy-to-use interface, which ensures that you will experience FM synthesis at its best and most entertaining."


  • Unrivaled sound quality.
  • Offers a new and user-friendly approach to FM synthesis. Nemesis makes FM synthesis accessible to everyone, regardless of skill level or experience.
  • Easy to tweak presets or program your own sounds with.
  • NeoFM covers all important aspects of traditional FM synthesis, but is in no way limited only to bell-style sounds. It offers a very large sonic range, one that is much more varied than other FM synths.
  • Due to its innovative technical approach, neoFM does not suffer from a metallic sound or from the weaknesses of conventional FM.
  • No fewer than 22 combinable synthesis types. Nemesis expands FM with further synthesis methods such as Additive, Formant, Wavetables, Waveshaping, Phase distortion, Sync and Reso synthesis.
  • Contains 1065 inspiring patches from professional designers.
  • Unique signature sound.
  • Nemesis features a large number of exclusive sounds that are not possible with other synthesizers.
  • Perfect for modern, as well as all other music styles.

this is not a synthesizer , but software that needs a host computer. Would sonic state consider being clearer as what they describe as a synth?

It says for Mac or Windows in the title. You want someone to come to your house and scream it in your face? Would that spell it out enough for you?

By that logic a VA-synth is merely a software that needs a host-DSP.. Some people overcomplicate stuff..

I love all this software shite being called synthesizers. It is comical ,specialy the rendered pics. Is it ten year olds who dream this shit up as credible 'instruments' .Love the rack concept also? Rack software ,there was someone trying to sell rack ears for softsynths.

On behalf of devils advocates everywhere! Flacidware, sounds like you should know a lot about soft-synths. Your head likely has ears, but no electronics to speak of, and yet you synthesize ideas like everyone else. Perhaps Flacidware is a softsynth disguised as a grumpy old commentator.

The real problem that I have with this synthesizer isn't whether it is one. I can say with some authority that it is, in fact, a synthesizer. However, I'm not hearing anything revolutionary in the demo that has been put onto YouTube and that we hear in this video. The other problem that I have is what I always have with marketing: It is marketing. Calling something a "revolutionary synth" doesn't make it so. Not even saying that it is "evolved FM" is making it so. If they released a bunch of specs, released some demos on SoundCloud, and let us judge for ourselves -- well -- I guess that this might be treating us like the intelligent beings who we are. Then again, they might not make as much money.
