Description: Tone2 Electra v2 is not only one of the most powerful synthesizers – it is a complete synthesis solution! Explore a vast musical universe of oscillators with multiple synths, analog filters, chaotic fractals, samples, flexible modulation, and a huge sonic range.
Many say the Electra2 is the most powerful synthesizer on the market. This is a bold statement, but why is it true? Electra2 breathes new life into the term “synthesizer workstation”. With a powerful and technically versatile approach to audio production, it provides you with truly outstanding new sounds.
The device is equipped with a high quality sound engine with multilayer support and a wide range of musical functions. This user-friendly, easy-to-use interface makes it easy for first graders to create sounds and allows experts to delve into sound design as deeply as they want. Thanks to the high-tech Tone2 technology, you not only work with better sound quality, but also lower CPU consumption and a larger palette for creating original sounds than with any other type of workstation.
Electra2 comes with an astounding collection of over 1,300 ready-to-go sounds by professional sound engineers. The Smart Patch Browser gives you an instant overview of all the categories and sounds available. Just select the sound you want – it’s that simple.
The update to v2.8 is a major update, which is available for free. It includes a big GUI with 6 different sizes, enhanced sound, higher performance, new features and lots of improvements. Electra 2.8 is downward compatible with all previous versions. All existing song projects and patches can be loaded without any further steps necessary. They will benefit from the enhanced sound-quality.
A big interface is available beside of the normal scale now.
It is possible to select from 6 GUI sizes by clicking on ‘SIZE’.
The plugin detects the screen-resolution and selects the best size automatically.
