Tone2 ElectraX Synthesizer

Tone2 has announced ElectraX 1.2, an update to its software synthesizer for Windows and Mac.

New in ElectraX 1.2:

  • Filter section has been extended with Fractal Filters. These completely new filter types are excusive and not available from any other company.
  • Native 64 Bit standalone version.
  • Create 4x stereo unison patches with ‘copy’ button.
  • ‘Load patch to synth’ allows to stack up to 4 patches for fat multitimbral sounds.
  • The OSCs support drag&drop for wav import and resynthesis.
  • Samples longer than 10 seconds can be loaded now.
  • Analog modeled ‘Moog’ filter (analog controls self oscillation and non-linearity).
  • Analog modeled State Variable Lowpass with Filter-FM (analog controls FM amount).
  • Nonlinear 12dB Lowpass ‘LP Shaped’.
  • Mod Matrix destination ‘Start’ sets OSC start phase or Sample start point.
  • Mod Matrix destination ‘Mix’ crossblends between filter1 and filter2.
  • Mod Matrix sources ‘Midi CC’, ‘Breath’, ‘Foot’, ‘Expression’, ‘Hold’…
  • Mod Matrix source ‘VoiceNr’ returns a value which depends on the current voice number.
  • Mod Matrix source ‘NumKeys’ counts the number of pressed keys for more dynamic expression.
  • Mod Matrix source ‘KeySat.’ returns a saturated version of key follow.
  • Mod Matrix source ‘Impulse’ returns a 1ms long impulse which can be used for attack sounds.
  • 12 additional analog ‘Decay’ envelopes as sources in Mod Matrix.
  • Loop/Single is automatically set on sample import.
  • Octave/Semi is automatically detected from sample name (e.g. Piano_A-3.wav).
  • Last directory is remembered on wav load and fxp load/save.

Other improvements:

  • Improved graphics with 4 new skins.
  • FM on/off, OSC on/off, Distortion type and Sync can also be changed during playback now.
  • An OSC which is FM modulated by a deactived source does not longer output noise.
  • Many improvements in sample handling.
  • Up/down controls show an arrow and are more smooth to handle.
  • Improved sound in glide mode.
  • ElectraX is more robust against broken Midi data which is sent from hosts.
  • Improved CPU compatibility.
  • Waiting icon is show during patch load.
  • Improved ‘analog’ psycoacoustic mode.

Version 1.2 is expected to be available in June 2011. ElectraX for Mac & WIndows is available for US $199/189 EUR.

  1. Just last week I was thinking about digital fractal oscillators, and now here we are! Very interested to hear what it sounds like…
