Review: Get 4 synthesizers in 1 handy interface with the Best Service ElectraX virtual instrument.
The Best Service ElectraX is a versatile instrument that lets you explore multi-synthesis oscillators, analog modeled filters, chaotic fractals, samples, psychoacoustic processing, flexible modulation and much more.
The ElectraX is driven by its 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. According to Best Service, the Best Service ElectaX also opens unheard of acoustic possibilities with its exclusive fractal synthesis, which can be used to mimic the behavior of organisms or analog circuits.
You can use ElectraX's sample oscillator to import your own waves and a quick import option is available to create custom patches or vocoder sounds based on your own samples. ElectraX ships with a large selection of licensed wave content, including morphable analog and digital wave types. In addition, you can automatically resynthesize your own waveforms from samples or import custom wavetables.
Each synth's filter section consists of 2 multi-mode filters with 23 filter types and multi-mode distortion. The new virtual instrument comes with analog modeled 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, while a dual distortion unit offers 6 different modes.
The master and insert effects sections include 18 effect processors, such as high-end reverb, multitap delay, vocoder, chorus, ensemble, phaser, flanger, rotary, surround encoder, trancegate and more.
When it comes to modulation, you will get punchy, analog-sounding envelopes. ElectraX LFOs are syncable to BPM and can modulate up to the audible range and you can create rhythmic sequences or custom wave shapes with the step LFO. Moreover, the flexible Modulation Matrix provides an instant overview of the active modulations and the MIDI learn feature makes it possible to assign controllers with a single click.
One preset setup can handle up to 4 full-featured synthesizers with four independent arpeggiators and step sequencers. The arpeggiator supports autochord, swing, glide and keyboard splitting, allowing you to create sequences with several instruments playing at the same time.

Software synthesizer designed by Ferdinand Forsch
Review: As a musician, composer and artist, the producer Ferdinand Forsch has been inventing and constructing new musical instruments, sound sculptures and installations since 1982. The Best Service Klanghaus has been presented in concerts, performances and exhibitions all over the world.
A central inspiration in his research and work is the relationship between the acoustic and the visual between sound and form, hearing and seeing. Through creatively engaging in this interplay, an inherent unity in diversity is developed. All the sounds you can hear and work with in the Klanghaus library come from an original and unique source.
