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

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.
