TAL-Elek7ro-II Free And Fat VST Synth

Togu Audio Line is one of my favourite VST synth developers and if you haven’t yet downloaded their TAL-Elek7ro-II then go get it! 🙂


Elek7ro-II VA synth has been around for a while, but I wanted to post it here because it sounds so great and it’s not that hard to program as well.

Here’s some details (quote from Togu Audio Line website):

TAL-Elek7ro is a virtual analog synth with some special features like oscillator hardsync and frequncy modulation. Including improved alias free oscillators, new developed fast envelopes and lfo’s with a wide range from 0.1Hz up to 400 Hz. A free routable envelope with attack and decay is available too. This synth is useful for a wide range of sounds from percussion to deep bass sounds.

Some features:

  • 2 oscillators with hardsync, PW and FM (saw, pulse, triangle, sine).
  • 1 sub oscillator (saw, rectangle).
  • 1 noise oscillator.
  • 18dB or 12dB non linear analog modelled low pass resonance filter.
  • Mono mode, including portamento.
  • Poly mode, up to 6 voices (not cpu optimized for poly mode).
  • 2 free routable Lfo’s (0.1Hz – 400Hz, sine, triangle, saw, rectangle, s&h, noise).
  • Filter and amplifier ADSR-envelope.
  • Free routable AD-envelope.
  • Mod-wheel and Pitch-Wheel support.
  • Midi Learn for all pots.
  • Velocity to filter contour intensity.
  • Panic button.
  • Tutorial and installation guide.

  1. Hi Petri.

    I’m a beginner and trying to grasp all the basics of electronic music making. So from this short TAL-Elek7ro-II demo I got a couple of questions for you if you don’t mind!

    Looking at how you turned the ‘Cutoff’ handle (under FILTER) up and down, so it made the different sounds you played from clear to muffled and back – if I want to put this effect (like gradually going from clear to muffled sound for example) over a number of notes played for e.g. in 4 measures, what is the best way to achieve it? Would I have to go into this VSTi, adjust the handle to a certain level, and then go back into the MIDI editor and insert one note at a time? Then go back to VSTi, turn the handle again to change the sound and back again to MIDI editor, and so on – for all the notes?

    Sorry if this sounded confusing! I’m wondering, instead of doing this note by note is there maybe a quicker way to place this range of notes (with this changing effect) into the MIDI editor, like recording the notes that you played (while adjusting the Filter handle) and pasting the whole thing into the editor?

    Thanks a lot!

      • Thanks Petri 🙂 I didn’t know about automation so that was quite useful. I’m not using FL Studio; I’ve started using Reaper recently (it’s a free DAW and seems pretty good so far), so I’m not sure whether it can do automation – will try to find out now!

        Can you only draw straight lines in an automation clip or is it possible to make them curvy? It’s just a guess but maybe being a more smooth line the sound you might get could be more gradual (not have abrupt changes)? Wondering if the same would apply for automation in other DAWs? If it’s not possible then no big deal 🙂

        With regards to drawing notes, I think if you can break them up a little (on the timeline) instead of having one continuous sound, it could make it sound even more interesting!
        Also, I suddenly realised that if you’re already altering the sound (with the envelope) of one continuous note, maybe also trying to play different notes at the same time would make it sound confusing/chaotic… (though that was my initial idea) – is this something that you’ve done before or known other producers to have tried to do?

        • Np!

          Yea, at least in FL you can draw all kinds of automation envelopes – curvy as well. That way the transition is softer yeah. I’m not familiar with Reaper, but I’m quite sure it has the automation function as well (most DAW’s do).

          To your last question: playing different notes (not just one long continues note) and using filter automation is one of the standard methods in electronic music production – I do it all the time as well as countless of others producers so I suggest you to test it out. It gives a nice variation to the color of the sound.

    Hey Max,

    I’m having a problem with downloading the free VSTS you’ve posted. The way i put them in my Fl studio 9 file is going to my computer, image line, Fl studio,data,patches, then packs. Is this the correct way of putting the vst in your FL studio? also when i usually download vsts i will the the sample sounds in the folder after i extract them. That’s how i know the vsts work, but when i download these vst samples all i see is a guide and note? is there another way to put the vsts and samples in Fl Studio files? thanks for taking the time out to read this. 🙂

    Hey Petri,

    Thanks that helped a lot. I have one more problem. I just finished this new track and i decided to make the white sweep noise. My problem is when I change the frequency nob to 125 to create an automation clip it doesn’t pop up under my pattern like the tutorial on youtube. Instead the frequency fruity filter extends to the length of my track instead of the 4 bars that I put in my pattern. Is there a way to make my fruity filter frequency connect to my pattern with the four bars instead of extending the the amount of the track? Or was i supposed to make the white noise sweep before i made the track? Thanks for all your help! 🙂

    • Hey there,

      If you want the automation clip to be at certain length, make a selection in the Playlist Timeline, and after that, create the automation clip and the clip will automatically span the length of your selection. You can also change length after its created: just drag the last control point to stretch the clip.

      Hope this helps!

  4. Hey,
    This is a wonderfull synth, it’s awesome for dubstep! There seem’s to be a problem with the oskillator’s. When I record with pianoroll they do not work proper. They get offbeat and cinda “live they’re own life”. I’m new to mixing, so I have no clue what makes this happen. Is this something I can fix? Would love to use it for my projects 🙂 Now I can only use it without the OSC’S so I stick to 3x Osc for now.
