Tone2 ElectraX v1.2 x86 (Виртуальный синтезатор) - Компания Tone2 объявила о выпуске виртуального синтезатора ElectraX. Это весьма мощный инструмент с возможностью получения звука самого высокого качества. Вообще говоря, ElectraX представляет собой четыре синтезатора в одном интерфейсе, что позволяет достаточно широко использовать возможности мультисинтеза и комбинирования звука. Также среди достоинств ElectraX высококачественные агоритмы обработки, многие из которых получены моделированием реальной аналоговой аппаратуры. Среди других наиболее интересных особенностей софта: малая загрузка системы и поддержка многоядерных процессоров, 13 различных методов синтеза с возможностью комбинирования, психоакустический процессинг, пресеты созданные профессиональными музыкальными продюсерами, 23 фильтра эмулирующих звучание аналоговых приборов, 45 типов осциляторов, 18 типов звуковых эффектов, функция learn для быстрого назначения управления midi-интерфейсом. Tone2 ElectraX доступен в формате самостоятельного программного продукта для компьютеров Windows-платформы
“The award winning ElectraX is one of the most powerful synthesizers ever” - these are bold words, but we’ll explain why...
ElectraX is a synth with a difference, it is in fact even 4 separate synths in one. ElectraX’ structure combines 4 different layers each combining of 3 multi-synthesis oscillators, dual multimode-filters, flexible modulation, an impressive effects section, as well as global parameters that control all 4 layers. The oscillators offer far more than just standard waveforms. ElectraX can do 13 synthesis methods as well as the exclusive fractal synthesis to create unique sounds that are not possible with other synthesizers. ElectraX offers an incredible array of combinable synthesis options for very little CPU usage, which is a major factor when you consider how much power this synthesizer has. It also comes with an easy to use and very clear GUI, and an easy to use preset manager which allows access to a very large library of professionally prepared sounds from some of the leading names in preset design.
Synthesis Methods & Oscillator Features
ElectraX offers both traditional synthesis styles as well as futuristic ones. These range from the classic Virtual Analogue all the way up to the exclusive and obscure fractal oscillators. There are 13 different synthesis methods available which can be combined to create new and exciting sounds. ElectraX offers a great deal of scope for sound creation, limited only by your own imagination. It opens up whole new avenues of sonic capability in new and innovative ways.
Samples and Wavetables
ElectraX is much more than just a generator. It has the ability for you to import your own samples and waveforms which can then be modulated further internally, in essence making it act as a sampler. Not only that, you have the option of resynthesizing any imported samples or waveforms and then further modulating them with the PW control, hence making the wavetable play modulation dynamic and not static. ElectraX comes with a very extensive selection of licensed wave content, which includes morphable analogue and digital waveforms.
Each layer within ElectraX contains two multi-mode filters with 32 unique filter types and multi-mode distortions. There are many great sounding filters included with ElectraX. All of these incredible sounding filters are able to self oscillate and can bring a wide range of timbres due to the variable degree of analogue behaviour. The filters include several options that will allow you to further sculpt each sound with high precision and per layer. Not only are there many filters on offer in ElectraX, but in this section is a dual distortion unit which offers six different modes. These range from the classic tube pre-amp distortions to a fuzz-box type distortion or even wave shaping. The filter section can help you create sounds the way you want them to be.
ElectraX has a master and REPLACE effects section consisting of 18 high quality effects specifically built and fine tuned to complement ElextraX' sound. The effects can be used per layer which will influence that specific layer only, or as a master effect to enhance the sound as a whole. Whatever your needs in this area are, ElectraX has it covered, should it be a large reverb, a Vocoder, a multi-tap, a massive ensemble, ...
ElectraX has a very extensive modulation section allowing you to add modulation wherever you need it. These consist of fast and punchy sounding envelopes, high quality LFO's which can be synchronized to BPM and modulate up to the audible range, and also a step LFO which can be used to create rhythmic sequences or custom wave shapes. The modulation matrix is another way to further enhance your sound, allowing for simple or extremely complex modulation settings to be used. Each layer has it's own Mod Matrix available.
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 live performance.
