Simple Yet Sophisticated Subtractive Synth

It doesn't matter if you're an old hand at subtractive synthesis or you're just getting started, FXpansion Strobe2 is one soft synth you absolutely want in your virtual instrument rig. Its logical layout and straightforward controls allow you to craft original sounds quickly, while the massive preset collection and preset morphing provide endless inspiration. At the same time, Strobe2 is extremely deep, with powerful sound-shaping options onboard and a modulation engine that's effortless to apply, so you can craft delightfully complex patches, without crawling through endless menus or tutorials.

FXpansion Strobe2 Subtractive Polysynth Virtual Instrument at a Glance:
  • Superior synthesis through refreshing simplicity
  • Take your sound creation further with TransMod
  • Loaded with user-requested features and updates
Superior synthesis through refreshing simplicity

Between its remarkable depth and straightforward controls, it's little wonder why FXpansion Strobe2 is considered to be the perfect starting point for learning synthesis by many professional instructors. It starts off strong with an oscillator section that lets you dial in complex waveform stacks using just a handful of controls. Add in a multi-waveform suboscillator and a noise generator, and you can hit the filter section with delightfully rich harmonics. The filter section itself includes 22 modes and tons of sonic character, and an extensive modulation section makes it easy to create extremely sophisticated sounds. On top of all of this, Strobe2 includes over 900 presets to get you rolling.

Take your sound creation further with TransMod

One of the things that makes Strobe2 stand out from the other fantastic soft synths Sweetwater carries is its unique and intuitive approach to modulation. The TransMod system replaces the role of a more traditional modulation matrix, allowing you to assign modulation sources and set the variation range directly on Strobe2's controls. This visual feedback makes it easy to see and adjust the most critical modulation settings in context, while advanced processors allow you to create intricate modulation effects. From subtle detuning to pure chaos, TransMod opens up a world of cool and creative modulation.

Loaded with user-requested features and updates

One of the things that impresses the artists and engineers at Sweetwater the most is when we see companies like FXpansion really take user feedback to heart when they release a new version of a popular product, and they exceeded our expectations with Strobe2. Major improvements to the effects, arpeggiator, and modulation capabilities are instantly recognizable enhancements long-time Strobe users will appreciate; whereas, preset morphing and randomization offer great new ways to dabble with sound creation. If you rock a LinnStrument or Seaboard, then you'll love the Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression, which accommodates the full range of expression your controller can deliver. And finally, in a forward-thinking move, FXpansion gave Strobe2 a scalable vector interface that looks great even on high-resolution Retina and 4K displays.
