Electra2 is equipped with a high quality sound engine, multi layer support and a large range of music production features, all using a friendly hands-on interface that ensures first-timers can easily create sounds and experts can take their designs as deep as they want to.
Featuring 1200 production-ready sounds designed by professional sound designers. A comfortable patch browser to give an instant overview of all available sounds, together with an on-screen keyboard to audition them from within the patch browser.
Electra2 provides many user-friendly control options to tweak factory sounds or craft new ones. Each of its 4 layers consists of a powerful multitimbral synthesizer with 14 different synthesis methods.
Electra2 uses a multilayer architecture which gives access to multiple synthesizers at the same time within one interface.
Each of its 4 layers works as an independent full featured multitimbral synthesizer consisting of up to 54 oscillators, dual multi-mode filters, a flexible modulation system, effects section and its own arpeggiator.
Edit sounds per layer or edit multiple layers simultaneously. Separate synthesizer layers can be saved and loaded, which offers the possibility to save a layer from a patch and load it back into another patch.
Electra2's sample capabilities offer the possibility to load and manipulate samples, which are optionally auto-tuned when loaded.
Samples can be played back in single, loop mode or loop markers can be used to set an autoloop. The sample engine features an edit menu with a wide selection of loop, tune and sample edit options, as well as 12 effects to further process samples.
A special quick import sample and quick Vocoder menu option is provided to guide through setting up a sample or vocoder patch.
Oscillators and Synthesis:
Electra2 offers a selection of 14 different types of synthesis. 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 attention to sound quality, musical potential and low CPU usage. Mix different types of synthesis within one or multiple layers, import samples, resynthesize a waveform or use a vocoder on one of the layers.
Each layer within Electra2 contains two multi-mode filters with 37 unique filter types, 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.
The filters are able to self-oscillate and most of the filter types use a special Analog control, which varies the amount of analog behavior applied by the filter. The filters use a real-time display to make it easy to see and understand what the filter is doing to the audio signal.
A dual distortion unit completes this section with six different modes, which range from classic tube pre-amp distortions, through fuzz-box type distortion, all the way to wave shaping.
32 different effect processors are available from the effects section, ranging from reverb, delay, multi-tap delay, smart unison, trancegate, chorus, flanger and phaser, up to vocoder, tremolo, vibrato, surround encode, rotary, EQ, distortion, amp-simulation and compressor. A 'Reverb Infinity' effect is also included, which offers an endless reverb signal that continues on forever.
Both a master effect, as well as 4 insert effects are provided to offer a wide variety of effect possibilities.
Electra2 also offers smart micro tuning, which makes chords sound more fat and transparent at the same time. Optional punch and psychoacoustic features are also included to add a little kick to the sound.
Electra2's multi layer architecture offers the possibility to have 4 arpeggiators at the same time, together with a host of editing features.
The arpeggiator also supports optional advanced features such as autochords, pitch slides, legato, swing-shuffle and matrix integration.
Electra2 features a modulation section for each of its layers. Modulation is done using fast and punchy-sounding envelopes, high quality LFOs which can be synchronized to BPM and modulate up to the audible range, as well as a step LFO which can be used to create rhythmic sequences or custom wave shapes.
LFOs and envelopes each use a real-time display to make it easy to see changes and get an instant overview of which settings are used.

Tone2 Audio has updated the synthesizer-workstation Electra to v2.8, a major update, which is available for free.
Electra 2.8 includes a big GUI with 6 different sizes, enhanced sound, higher performance, new features and lots of improvements. Electra 2.8 is downward compatible with all previous versions. All existing song projects and patches can be loaded without any further steps necessary. They will benefit from the enhanced sound-quality.

A big interface is available beside of the normal scale now.
It is possible to select from 6 GUI sizes by clicking on 'SIZE'.
The plugin detects the screen-resolution and selects the best size automatically.
The filter-display, the osc-display, the LFO-display and the envelope-display are animated when automation or MIDI-learn is used.
Pitchwheel and Modwheel are animated when the patch-browser is visible.
Added Notarisation for the installers on Mac.
Support for Code-Signing on the Mac, since new hosts may require it to be able to run plugins.
Compatibility with MacOS Catalina.
Completely new AudioUnit interface.
The plugin and songs are loading, saving, opening and closing faster.
Better compatibility with other plugins.
More intuitive handling of sample-loops.
Better descriptions for some tool-tips.
Many small enhancements for the user-interface.
Fixed some typos.
More contrast for the pitch-wheel and mod-wheel in the patch-browser.
More accurate timing for MIDI-events.
More accurate processing of MIDI-pitchwheel.
Slightly enhanced sound of PingPong, Delay and Delay-Diffuse by reducing the detuning.
Enhanced sound and default-settings for Delay-Band and Multitap.
Enhanced sound and performance of Reverb-Hall and Reverb-Cathedral.
Enhanced sound-quality of sample-playback in high octaves.
32-bit on Mac is not longer supported. If you still use it, install Electra 2.7 instead.
MacOS 10.7 is the minimum requirement now. If you still use 10.6 or 10.5, install Electra 2.7.
Fixed a possible crash.
Fixed a possible compatibility-problem with Cubase and FL-Studio where the screen was blank.
Workaround for a well-known bug in Apple's AU-manager: It is not longer necessary to reboot the Mac to detect the plugin.
