Tone2 Audiosoftware has released Electra2, a major upgrade to its ElectraX synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.
According to Tone2, Electra2 is ‘the most powerful synthesizer on the market’.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
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. Electra2 is ready for any type of music you play!
The instrument is equipped with a high-end quality sound engine, multilayer support and a wide range of music production features, but it’s designed to put you in control.
