The next step in FM synthesis.

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, making it easier than ever to get great 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 dive into synthesis regardless of your experience level. 

Nemesis features pristine tonal quality and offers sonic possibilities far beyond the scope of conventional FM synthesizers. A uniquely silky signature sound is generated by Nemesis’ synth engine, which is capable of providing warm, smooth, and creamy tones as well as the classic 'cold' sounds FM synthesis is well known for. Whether you desire a crisp, clean sound or downright nasty tones, the NeoFM engine delivers with the highest sound quality possible.

As quick and easy as it is to dial-in good sounding results with Nemesis, sometimes you just want to rely on a good and inspiring sound library. This is why Nemesis comes bundled with more than 1065 sounds. Each sound is carefully built by a professional sound designer and is crafted with great attention to detail. The result is a sound library that is inspirational to work with and that will fuel your creativity.

Nemesis offers an innovative approach called 'neoFM' synthesis which is genuine FM synthesis. Most conventional FM synths such as the DX7, use phase modulation (PM) instead of genuine FM synthesis, yet such synths are branded as FM synthesizers for marketing reasons. However, the traditional PM approach is limited to using dark sounding waveforms like sinoids or triangles, which results in a dull or bell-like sound. Classic waveforms like a sawtooth do not work well with it because they result in an unpleasant, sharp and excessively metallic sound. 

Resynthesize a waveform from your own samples, or use the comfortable additive spectral editor to further manipulate & shape your wave by editing its partials. With several play modes like polyphonic, monophonic & legato, true 4x stereo unison, 22 synthesis types, and an unlimited number of waveforms and the sky is the limit...literally.

As important as anything else within a synth are the effects. The team at Tone2 spent a great deal of time ensuring that Nemesis featured a suite of high quality FX. No less then 33 effects are available from the effects section, ranging from Reverb, Delay, Chorus, and Phaser, to Tremelo, Vibrato, Distortion, Amp-Simulation, Bitcrush, Degrader and Compressor. To complete these effects, several flexible routing options are included. The innovative Ducking Mode makes your mix sound more transparent and fat.

Modulate almost any parameter well up into the audio-rate speed, from internal modulation sources like the LFOs, to a wide variety of MIDI messages. There' also a MIDI-learn function included, so assigning CC's is as simple as a right-click and a knob-turn. Modulation can be as simple or complex as you want it to be. Nemesis’ modulation system is there to provide whichever modulation routing you require to create your perfect sound.
