SonicCharge µTonic (MicroTonic) is a pattern based drum-machine plug-in featuring 100% synthetic drum sounds. MicroTonic was created by software developer Magnus Lidström and is the first product launched under the Sonic Charge brand. Magnus is mostly recognized for his work with Propellerhead Software where he was the brain behind the synthesizer Malström which was introduced in the 2.0 release of Reason.[1]


MicroTonic was first released in December 2003 as a VST plug-in for the Windows platform. Over the years new versions has been released bringing new features and extended compatibility into the software. In 2004 the first Mac OS X version was available. In 2005 version 2.0 was released with over 20 new features and Audio Units support. With the introduction to Intel based Macs in 2006 a new Universal Binary version was released. In December 2010 a 3.0 version of the VST saw the light. This Version enhanced the µTonic massively. The step sequencer has now the option to open a grid editor where you can edit all instruments in one window. Also, now you are able to Morph between two presets.[2]
