We are currently working on Electra 2.7. The update will extend Electra with waveshaping synthesis and SFZ file support. It will include many exciting new features, additional effects, enhanced sound and lots of improvements.
A beta might be availbe next month.
Electra 2.7 will be 100% downward compatible and free for all Electra2 users.

Please post feature request / bug reports here or send an email to markus[a t]tone2[dot]com . We can't include new fetures after the release. Wink

Here is some info about the current status of the update. All the stuff has already been finished. The listing can of course still change.

New features:

- Added support for *.sfz files. They can be imported with the FILE menu.
- New triangular waveshaper 'ShapTri' for the distortion section.
- New asymetric waveshaper 'ShapAsy' for the distortion section.
- New pulseoid waveshaper 'ShapPul' for the distortion section.
- New warping waveshaper 'ShapWar' for the distortion section.
- New asymetric waveshaper 'ShapHal' for the distortion section.
- New zapping waveshaper 'ShapZap' for the distortion section.
- New symetric waveshaper 'ShapSym' for the distortion section.
- New distortion type 'Selfsync' which creates a subharmonic sound.
- New distortion type 'Degrade' which adds mirror-frequencies to the signal.
- New distortion type 'Noise' which mixes white noise with the signal.
- New distortion type 'NoiseRM' which ring-modulates the signal with noise.
- New distortion type 'Scream' with fractal feedback.
- New sample-oscillator-effect: 'Rectify' distorts a sample.
- New sample-oscillator-effect: 'Noisify 2' destroys a sample.
- New sample-oscillator-effect: 'Invert' changes the phase of a sample by 180 degrees.
- New sample-oscillator-effect: 'Fold' flips the negative amplitude of a sample.
- Plugin editor can be minimized permanently by clicking the EDIT button.
- Multi-line tooltips for better readability and more detailed descriptions.
- New microtuning-modes '432Hz -32cent','424Hz -66cent','449Hz +33cent' and '457Hz +66cent'.
- When multilayer-editing is active the knobs show a red line.
- Added drag&drop support for multilayer-editing.
- 'Quick import sample' does generate a new program name automatically.
- 'Quick import sample' maps the modwheel to vibrato automatically.
- 'Quick import sample' automatically generates a soft velocity mapping to volume.


Enhancements:

- Patches are loading up to 10x faster.
- Songs are loading faster.
- Drastically reduced CPU-load after switching through the patches.
- Enhanced sound of the 'Shape' waveshaper (20x oversampling & removed a click).
- Enhanced sound of 'Tube' distortion (10x oversampling).
- Enhanced sound of 'Soft' distortion (10x oversampling).
- Enhanced sound of 'Crush' distortion (10x oversampling).
- Better default values for some effects.
- Useless scrollbars are not longer shown in the standalone version on PC.
- More detailed descriptions for many tooltips.
- Parallel and serial filter-routing is more easy to set-up.
- Fine-tuned the coordinates of some controls.


Changes:

- ElectraXmidi.cfg is now stored within the ElectraX_data directory.
- ElectraMouse.cfg is now stored within the ElectraX_data directory.
- ElectraTooltips.cfg is now stored within the ElectraX_data directory.
- Electra2.pdf is now stored within the ElectraX_data directory.
- Sample effect 'Square' has been renamed to 'Quadrature'.
- The sinoid-waveshaper 'Shaper' has been renamed to 'ShapSin'.


Fixes:

- Fixed a compatibility problem with recording automation in some hosts.
- The grid of the step-lfo was displayed incorrectly.
- Workaround for a Cubase-bug which sets the window-size incorrectly after 'save a default preset'.
- A double-click to the matrix-send-level did not update the modulation-depth-sectors for the knobs properly.
- Fixed a possible crash which could happen when the plugin is closed while a tooltip is shown.
- Fixed a bug in the fast-sine-approximation on PC.
- Keyrange for note-filtering was displayed incorrectly.
- Fixed some typos in the tooltips.
- Initializing a new patch did not always update the program name correctly.

 Smiley

Requests:

1 - Add a 2nd or 3th effect per layer if possible.
2 - Also if possible... Allow the Master FX to be modulated in matrix (i know there might be problems since modulation is per layer not global)

Bigger GUI with several sizes: Is planed for a future update.  It requires a redesign of the GUI.
More effects per layer: Is planed for a future update. It requires a redesign of the GUI.
Modulation on the Master FX: Does not work properly since modulation is per layer. It would cause glitches.

I will drop the resizing requests forum wide. Glad to read that there are plans to add that to your plugins!

I have a feature request regarding chord stacks and auto-generated thirds:
Make the root key user-selectable the way the micro-tuning is selectable as a global parameter.
Currently it's fixed to C major (all white keys).
