Plugin Boutique and Samplify today released Carbon Electra, a powerful virtual vintage analog synth built “by producers, for producers.” It boasts 4 analog style sync-able oscillators with adjustable pulse width and frequency modulation, multiple wave forms including pitch-able noise, 6 filter types including powerful vocal filter with filter drive and saturation, a simple-yet-complete FX section (like having a bunch of great guitar pedals), an editable step sequencer that can mod multiple destinations, over 600 factory presets, the ability to run the amp section “too hot” to create a modern hyper-compressed sound, all accessed from an intuitive physics-based graphic display with no hidden mysteries. Carbon Electra is debuts today at $99. It requires OS X 10.6 or later (10.8 recommended) and an AU or VST plug-in host. Owners of Plugin Boutique’s BigKick or VirtualCZ can save 20% on Carbon Electra; watch your email for a coupon code.
