Vintage sounds from the future

Over 1100 presets have been crafted for Strobe2 by veteran FXpansion sound designers. Covering a wide range of sounds — from razor-sharp electronic tones to warm pads based on classic synths — there's something for any production. 200+ MPE sounds are included.

DEEP SYNTHESIS

Synthesis made simple

Creating your own sounds with Strobe2 is fun and rewarding. The interface is deep, but accessible too:

  • Produce multi-oscillator sounds with none of the complexity using Strobe2's single super oscillator.

  • Add modulation with a bank of streamlined yet versatile tools like hard sync, stack & detune.

  • Vary your tone to an incredible degree with Strobe2's filter, featuring 22 different modes.

OSCILLATORS

A super sonic oscillator

At the heart of Strobe2 is a single 'super-oscillator', packed with features to give you unprecedented sonic flexibility:

  • Control multiple waveform faders, noise generator, hard-sync and key-tracking tone tools.

  • Add depth to your sound with a sub-oscillator, featuring a waveshaping circuit. Unlink the sub-oscillator from the detuning function to build a solid foundation beneath a contrasting main oscillator sound.

MODULATION

Modulate everything

Strobe2's revolutionary TransMod saves you time while letting you craft sounds in incredible detail:

  • Apply modulation directly to any parameter, and keep track of complex routing easily with intuitive visual cues.

  • Build complex effects fast with voice and unison modulation, a Euclid processor, curve processors and real-time modulation animations.

  • Assign expressive parameters based on ROLI's 5 Dimensions Of Touch (Strike, Glide, Slide, Press and Lift).

COMPATIBILITY

Bring Strobe2 into your workflow

Strobe2 works as a standalone desktop app, or VST, AU and AAX plug-in (64 bit) on Mac and Windows. Optimized for MPE-enabled controllers like the Seaboard, its sounds and effects work with non-MPE instruments too. So you can bring Strobe2 into any workflow.
