Icarus comes with the largest collection of filters available within a synthesizer. The audio-engine offers many powerful features like a drum-sequencer, a built-in vocoder, re-synthesis, a glitch-sequencer, the most advanced wavetable-editor available, an extremely mighty oscillator section, MSEGs, … However, the synth still remains very easy to use.

A comfortable interface with drag & drop support gives you instant help, visual feedback and immediate acoustic results.

Manual installation for PC

1. Close your host (Logic, Live, Cubase, etc.)
2. Install the full version of the plugin. Note: the demo version cannot be unlocked
3. Copy ‘Icarus.t2k’ to the VST directory. Steinberg hosts often use C:Program
filesSteinbergVSTplugins as the default plugin path. You can also take a look at your
host’s folder configuration. Note that the ‘Icarus.t2k’ keyfile should be inside the
same folder that the Icarus dll is in.
4. Open your host program.
5. Do a plugin rescan in the host if it does not list Icarus2. Detailed instructions on how to
perform a rescan are found in your host’s manual.
6. Open Icarus2. Now the normal user interface appears. If this is not the case, close
your host and go back to step 3, as most likely you did not copy the keyfile to the right
place.
