The award-winning Electra is not only one of the most powerful synthesizers ever - it's the complete synthesis solution! Explore a vast musical universe of multi-synthesis oscillators, analog filters, chaotic fractals, samples, flexible modulation, and an immense sonic range.

Many people say that ElectraX is the most powerful synthesizer on the market. This is a bold claim, but why is it true? 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.

The instrument is equipped with a high-end quality sound engine with multi-layer support and a wide range of music production features. Its friendly, easy-to-use interface allows first-timers to easily create sounds and enables experts to delve into sound design as deeply as they want to. With Tone2's high-end technology at its core, you're not only working with the best sound quality possible but also a lower CPU usage and larger palette for creating original sounds than with any other type of workstation.

Electra VST AU plugin comes with an astounding collection of over 1300 production-ready sounds by professional sound designers. A smart patch browser gives you an instant overview of all the available categories and sounds. Just pick the sound you want - it's that easy.

What's new in this version:

New features:
- 'Fat tune clean' and 'Fat tune soft' make chords sound a lot better.
- A checkmark shows the currently selected editor size.

- The microtuning-range is now limited and can not longer run 'out-of-tune'.
- The synth 'sits better in the mix' with other instruments.
- Enhanced stability and robustness.
- Enhanced GUI performance with drag&drop.
- The blue shadow that appeared with drag&drop did confuse some users. It was removed.
- Range-clipping makes the envelopes more stable when extreme modualtion settings are used.
- Enhanced sound of the 'Analog Heavy' microtuning-mode. Detuning does not longer get too extreme.
- Enhanced sound of the 'Analog Light' microtuning-mode. Thirds sound more plesant.
- Enhanced sound of the 'Fat tune soft' microtuning-mode. Thirds sound more plesant.
- Broken patches with invalid dropdown-menu values get fixed automatically.
- Enhanced parameter-smoothing.
- The mousewheel is more responsive with knobs on the Mac.
- Buggy DAWs can not longer crash Electra by sending garbage midi-note values.
- Several small enhancements.

- The Hypersaw modes with '9x' oscillators could occasionally create a phasing sound on Mac.
- The microtuning mode 'Fat 1' was not downward compatible and could sound too much detuned.
- The cursor did only change to modulation-depth-editing when zoom was set to 100%.
- The gui-size-changer on the bottom-right did not longer work after after the patch-browser had been opened.
- Fixed some really rarely happening crashes.
- The sound-design of the patch 'Electra3 Hypersaw' had a misstake.
- Fixed a rare crash with IQM that appeared on certain DAWSs on Intel Macs after loading while playing chords.
