For a limited time, you get Carbon Electra, a virtual analog Synthesizer for PC & Mac for free with every purchase at Plugin Boutique
There are commercial plugins for which you don’t have to pay anything. This is not a request to download cracks with which you catch easily malware. No but Plugin Boutique offers every month one or more plugins as a bonus with every purchase you made in the shop.
This month, they give away for free the in-house developed Carbon Electra Synthesizer. CE is a 4-oscillator VA synth with a big feature and a modern sound. Back in 2018, I made a review of Carbon Electra on the website and on YouTube. In the meantime, the plugin has got more features and has been improved.
Plugin Boutique Carbon Electra
Carbon Electra is a subtractive synth with four sync-able oscillators with adjustable pulse width (PWM), frequency modulation (FM), unison, and multiple wave types. A highlight is the filter section that features, among others, an excellent format filter. Here, you can go easily beyond classic virtual analog timbres. It also has built-in distortion and a functionality with which you can run the amp “too hot” perfect for more aggressive, dirty sounds.
For more experimental sounds, it also includes a step follower. A perfect feature for super flexible modulations. CE may not be a huge synthesizer like Omnisphere 2, Falcon 2 … but a solid VA synth with some nice features.
