EASTWEST Ships ElectraX In US


EASTWEST has announced their distribution of the ElectraX virtual instrument in the US market. Here's what they have to say about it...
Created in cooperation with Tone2 and Best Service, ElectraX is not only four powerful synthesizers in one interface - it's the next generation of high-end audio equipment.
ElectraX lets you explore the vast musical universe of multi-synthesis oscillators, analog modelled 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. The comfortable preset management provides instant access to a large library of sounds by professional designers. This version includes an exclusive sample/wavetable pack produced by Best Service.
All this comes with an easy-to-use interface, high-end sound quality and remarkable low CPU usage for an instrument as feature-rich as ElectraX.
Oscillators
At the heart of ElectraX are the multi-synthesis oscillators with up to 18 oscillators per voice. With ElectraX, you can combine classic synthesis types like Virtual Analog, FM, Phase Distortion, Ultrasaw, Sync, Waveshaping, Wavetables, AM, and completely new oscillator types. It also opens unheard of acoustic possibilities with its exclusive Fractal synthesis, which can be used to mimic the behavior 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 simple 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.
Filters
Each synth´s filter section consists of two multi-mode filters with 23 unique filter types and multi-mode distortion. ElectraX comes with excellent analog modelled 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.
Effects
ElectraX´ master and insert effects sections include 18 high quality effect processor, 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, and more.
Modulation
ElectraX´ 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.
Arpeggiator
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.
