Crazy Diamonds is another one of those very small specialized softsynths that only attempt to do one thing, in this case it's capture the sound and vibe of a Solina String Ensemble. It's not alone in this respect, as Big Tick's Cheese Machine attempts the same thing, and I must say that both of these synths though specialized, do what they do very well, while still sounding unique. Crazy Diamonds sounds a little more vintage than Cheese Machine, and seems better at quickly reproducing those classic String Ensemble sounds as it has the organ-esque sound of the Solina's. Crazy Diamonds also allows for more control over the sound than Cheese Machine which is nice, but doesn't take away from the quality of the latter. If you're looking for some cool simple vintage string/pad sounds, then you owe it to yourself to download both, but don't expect either to do much more than that. Also experiment with layering these sounds with different string sounds, either from other synths, or samples for even more fun. I love simple, and specialized VSTi's, as long as they do that task well, and Crazy Diamonds fits the bill. Of all the freeware that has come and gone from my VST Plug-ins folder Crazy Diamonds has been a constant.Read more

Like Mr. Progfusion, I was drawn in by the Pink Floyd reference- and true to it's name, this thing does a beautiful impersonation of that sound. However, the real beauty here is that it can do more than just that. In fact, you can actually get a pretty wide range of sounds from it.

It may not be a "do-it-all" instrument, but what it can do it does very well. It's capable of some incredibly lush sounds, especially when using the "milk & cream" sections.

I've only had one crash when using this VSTi, and I can't be sure that it was to blame. Other than that, no problems here.

So, what it comes down to is this: this is a great free VSTi that just may help you make some nice sounds you might not come across elsewhere. I would definitely recommend it.Read more

Hi,

Mr. Taips once again provides an excellent free VSTi. Although I don't use it as much as I used to, it is still a good string ensemble VSTi. Being a Pink Floyd junkie, I was drawn in by the name. Some of the presets are excellent. "Shine on .. " has always been on eof my favorite tunes to play and here I have a canned sound for it.

I still use this occasionally, mostly for harmony parts (splits time with Cheeze Machine). I have had problems with high pitched screeches but it is possible that subsequenct updates have fixed that. I recommend this for anyone into 70's string ensemble sounds.Read more

Is it an organ ? or is it a string pad ?
NO ... it is an organ string pad.

This plugin comes with some nice pads
I find them good to use for sinister dark horror like sounds or new wave music

For a free plugin it offers a lot
check out the milk section ... some creamy buttons to make a very smooth pad.

The cpu usage on my PIII 100mhz is not very high

overall a good plugin that is worth the download.

Seriously this is one of the best organ tones I have heard. Reminds me very much of the organ (pipe organ?) they used in the theme from "Phantom of the Opera" (the exact title escapes me at the moment). It allows for some phasing and delay effects, but the lack can easily be made up for by using the plugins of your choice.Read more

I have never seen it in Mac version, albeit the information here in the KVR Product page.

Here is the last version of the page before it vanished, and the two download links (the one for AZR3 and the one for Crazy Diamond) that it contains work perfect:

But these links are only for Windows. And I had never seen any link for OS X on his website in the past.
