Oscillators and Synthesis
With an incredible selection of 14 different types of synthesis, Electra2 truly is the "Swiss army knife of synthesis methods" (Beat Magazine). Its versatile synthesis engine can easily replace a studio filled with hardware.
The synthesis types range from traditional ones like the classic Virtual Analog, Wavetable, Subtractive, 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 careful attention to sound quality, musical potential and low CPU usage. They offer enormous scope for sound creation, being limited only by your imagination. So let your creativity run wild! Mix different types of synthesis within one or multiple layers, import samples, resynthesize 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.
No synthesizer workstation would be complete without an excellent filter section, which is why each layer within Electra2 contains two multi-mode filters with 37 unique filter types, and 3 tone controls, as well as multi-mode distortions.
These filter types range from traditional analog filters like Moog Low Pass, High Pass and Bandpass, up to digital ones like Vocal, Phaser, Aliaser and Fractal filters. A large number of these filter types are exclusive to Tone2 and not available in any other product.
The filters are able to self-oscillate and to produce a wide range of timbres, allowing you to further sculpt 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 filters use a real-time display to make it easy to see and understand how the filter is modifying your audio signal.
A dual distortion unit completes this section with six different modes, which range from classic tube pre-amp distortions, to fuzz-box type distortion, and all the way to wave shaping.
