crusherX-Live! is a stand alone synthesizer application whose powerful real-time granular synthesizer algorithm enables you to synthesize very complex sounds and cool multi-channel waves. crusherX-Live! distills and transforms sounds quite radically. Based on traditional granular synthesis, crusherX-Live! can be used as a synthesizer or as a versatile effects unit.
- Up to 10 channel ASIO/DirectX.
- VST(i) bridges.
- FM DCO.
- Joystick force feedback interaction.
- Physical modelling X/Y controller.
You can create sounds with the internal oscillators or samplers as well as real-time stereo input sound (e.g. a microphone). Internal feedback loops allows self-oscillation within crusher-X! Multi-channel ASIO Outputs allows extreme sound installations and multi-channel compositions up to 10 independent channels. A VST and VSTi Bridge links the crusher to your favorite host application.
An overall multi-dimensional morphing system morphs the sound between each parameter changing (e.g. on Loading, on Undo/Redo, on MIDI-Event, on turning a pocket dial knob etc.). This creates clouds of sweeping, shifting and graining sounds. The morph time can be ranged from 1msec up to 1 hour.
Beside the interface you can optionally control the crusher by using MIDI (unlimited amount of Key-Groups and Controllers with Map-functions) or/and a joystick. If you have a force feedback device you can feel the parameters changing. The ASIO Interface allows using of professional low latency multichannel soundcards and hardware.
