Tone2's freeware FireBird synth has been updated to v2.1 and now contains 70 additional sounds.
A spokesperson told us, "Since there was a lot of positive feedback on our freeware release of FireBird (previously $79) we decided to release a final update for it. Firebird itself is already vintage and even though it's no longer profitable to remain a commercial product, we feel that anyone should deserve an opportunity to enjoy this sometimes heavily underestimated synthesizer."
