ElectraX allows you to explore the musical possibilities of multi-synthesis oscillators, analog modeled filters, chaotic fractals, samples, psychoacoustic processing, flexible modulation and an immense sonic range. Combine multiple polyphonic or monophonic synthesizers and 13 different synthesis methods to create incredible results. All this comes with an easy-to-use interface, high-end sound quality and low CPU usage for an instrument as feature-rich as ElectraX. The preset management provides instant access to a large library of sounds by professional designers.
At the heart of ElectraX are the multi-synthesis oscillators with up to 18 oscillators per voice. With ElectraX you combine classic synthesis types like Virtual Analog, FM, Phase Distortion, Ultrasaw, Sync, Waveshaping, Wavetables, AM, and completely new oscillator types. It also opens unheard acoustic possibilities with its exclusive Fractal synthesis, which can be used to mimic the behaviour of organisms or analog circuits.
Samples and Wavetables
You can use ElectraX's sample oscillator to import your own waves - a quick import option is available to create custom patches or vocoder sounds based on your own samples with a mouse click. ElectraX ships with a large selection of licensed wave content, including morphable analog and digital wave types. In addition to this you can automatically resynthesize your own waveforms from samples or import custom wavetables.
Each synth's filter section consists of two multi-mode filters with 23 unique filter types and multi-mode distortion.
ElectraX comes with analog modeled filters, high precision digital filters, vocal filters, comb filters, phasers, equalizers and other exotic types. The warm-sounding filters are able to self oscillate and deliver a wide range of timbres due to the variable degree of analog behavior. A dual distortion unit offers six different modes. It can produce tube sound, known from analog pre-amp boxes, model a fuzzbox or do waveshaping.
ElectraX's master and insert effects sections include 18 high-quality effect processors, built and fine-tuned specifically to compliment the synth's sound such as: High-end Reverb, Multitap Delay, Vocoder, Chorus, Ensemble, Phaser, Flanger, Rotary, Surround encoder, Trancegate, etc.
ElectraX's modulation makes use of punchy, analog sounding envelopes. Its high quality LFOs are syncable to BPM and can modulate up to the audible range. You can create rhythmic sequences or custom wave shapes with the step LFO. The flexible Modulation Matrix is easy-to-use and provides a good and instant overview of the active modulations. With the built-in 'MIDI-learn' feature it is possible to assign controllers with a single click.
One preset setup can handle up to four full-featured synthesizers with four independent arpeggiators and step sequencers. The arpeggiator supports autochord, swing, glide and keyboard splitting. This allows you to create impressive sequences with several instruments playing at the same time, providing a creative and hands-on experience for a life performance.

This synth looks like normal subtractive synthsizer. But it doesn't.
It has many option for synthesis, like FM, Subtractive, Waverables, Supersaws, Sampleplayback...etc.
And It has 4 layers. So you can layer FM Pad and Subtractive Pad and Wave-sequence in one patch.
OK, it has many functions, but how about the sounds?
That's my main reason for choice VSTi.
The sounds... FM engine sounds like YAMAHA's DX series, its envelope is fast enough to create FM bass sound.
On Virtual Analog mode, oscillator is fat, and you can choise 18dB/Oct filters and its resonance can oscillate very smoothly like Roland's.
And the Wavetable synthesis sounds like PPG wave.
It seems the developer has huge love for synthsizer music!.
Adding above, you can make cutting edge bass sounds of dubstep or complextro.
Their official soundset ComplexDroids have one finger complextro patch.
4 layers, BPM syncable LFOs and many synthesis methods can do that .
The better you get to know synthsizer, the more you'll love Electra X.
I'm not review synthsizer usually, and not native English speaker so forgive my broken English.
I think this plugin is very underrated, the developer should have more attention.
That's why I wrote this.
I recommend ElectraX for everyone who love electronic sound..Read Review
Jap.... Endless row of possibilities to create any imaginable (and unimaginable) sound. In fact this is a 4-synth-unit, a really big machine. Running a single Osc and comparing it to.. let's say Sylenth I noticed that this one has a real digital sound which does not really change running several more Osc all on analog mode. But it has so much creative possibilities. I don'T know how much Waveforms any Osc provides, 40 ? 50 ? Countless ways of modulation, 3 LFO's, Insert FXs for all 4 Stages and a Master-FX... this is a true digital beast, a real king of class, I recommend it as must-have.Read Review

One of favorite VST synth I have in my arsenal!! Sounds incredable, easy to understand and use.Read Review
In March this year I published a review of ElectraX on my website. You can read the full review here:
With ElectraX Tone2 again delivers a great product. The synth sounds great and offers lots of possibilities with a user-friendly interface. The Init-like patches work very well as a starting sound for your own sound. Every synthesizer should have them. ElectraX suits every music production which needs a synthesizer sound, but it would not surprise us if this VST-plug-in will be very popular among dance music producers.
