Tone2 Electra2 -
Synthesizer Virtual Instrument
The only Synth You Need to Create a Hit
Many people say that Electra2 is the most powerful synthesizer on the market. This is a bold claim, but why is it true? Electra2 breathes new life into the term "synthesizer workstation". With its powerful and sonically versatile approach to audio production, it provides you with truly outstanding new sounds.
The instrument is equipped with a high-end quality sound engine with multi-layer support and a wide range of music production features. It's friendly, easy to use interface allows first-timers to easily create sounds and enables experts to delve into sound design as deeply as they want to. With Tone2's high-end technology at its core, you're not only working with the best sound quality possible but also a lower CPU usage and larger palette for creating original sounds than with any other type of workstation.
Electra2 comes with an astounding collection of over 1300 production-ready sounds by professional sound designers. A smart patch browser gives you an instant overview of all the available categories and sounds. Just pick the sound you want - it's that easy.
Multi-Layer = Power4
Playing with Electra2 is a lot of fun because the multi-layer architecture allows you to create impressive tracks just by pressing a single key. "Multi-layer architecture" means that you have access to four synthesizers at the same time and all within one interface.
Each of the four layers is an independent, full-featured multitimbral synthesizer consisting of up to 108 oscillators, dual multi-mode filters, a flexible modulation system, an effects section, and its own arpeggiator. Together with this and the 15 different types of synthesis available, it's guaranteed that your sound design possibilities are virtually endless.
You can edit your sounds layer-by-layer, or edit multiple layers simultaneously. Separate synthesizer layers can be saved and loaded, allowing you to simply grab a layer you like from a patch and load it into another patch.
You can combine different layers, mix different types of synthesis, use keyboard splits and use different play modes like Poly, Mono, Legato or Glide per synth layer. Most of the patches that come with Electra2 already use multiple layers so mixing and merging your favorite patches into a new multi-layer sound is extremely simple
Electra2's sample capabilities go far beyond normal playback. Load and manipulate your samples in ways that are impossible with other synths or samplers. Samples can be automatically tuned when loaded. Electra2 makes sure that your samples always playback at the highest quality possible. Playback samples in single or loop mode. Use the loop markers to set your own loop points. An easy to use auto-loop function allows click-free loops with no hassle. The sample engine offers an edit menu with a wide selection of sample edit options, as well as no less than 20 effects to further process your samples. Special Quick-import-sample- and Quick-vocoder menu options are provided to guide you through setting up a sample or vocoder patch. Just follow the on-screen directions and Electra2 will do all the work for you.
Your custom sample content is stored automatically with your songs or as a compact and compatible fxp file. You won't need to deal with broken songs, missing files or managing huge archives as in conventional samplers. With a higher sound quality than competing products, using samples together with synthesis has never been this easy: import your own samples, edit & process them where needed, and play.
Oscillators and Synthesis
With an incredible selection of 15 different types of synthesis, Electra2 truly is the "Swiss Army Knife of synthesis methods". Its versatile synthesis engine can easily replace a studio filled with hardware.
The synthesis types range from traditional ones such as the classic Virtual Analog, Wavetable, Subtractive, Samples, Phase Distortion and FM synthesis, up to Physical Modeling, Ultra-saw, Vocoder, Sync, Ringmod, PWM, Noise, Wave-shaping, and Tone2's exclusive Fractal synthesis.
Each synthesis type was designed with the utmost attention to sound quality, musical potential, and low CPU usage. They offer enormous scope for sound-creation, being limited only by your own imagination. Let your creativity run wild! You can mix different types of synthesis within single or multiple layers, import samples, re-synthesize a waveform or use a vocoder on one of the layers. You can literally build any sound imaginable and open up whole new worlds of sonic capabilities in innovative and inspiring ways.
Electra2 contains two multi-mode filters with 41 unique filter types and includes three tone controls, as well as multi-mode distortions. The filter types range from traditional analog filters like Moog Low-pass, High-pass and Band-pass and digital ones like Vocal, Phaser, Aliaser, and Fractal. Many of these filter types are exclusive to Tone2 and are not available in any other product. The filters are able to self-oscillate producing a wide range of timbres for further sculpting your sound to perfection. Most of the filter types use a special Analog control, which allows you to vary the amount of analog behavior applied by the filter. The filter section comes with two displays, which show the frequency response of the filter in real-time. This makes it easy to understand, how the filter affects the audio signal.
A dual distortion unit completes this section with 18 different modes, ranging from classic tube pre-amp distortions, to fuzz-box type distortion, self-sync and including wave-shaping.
