Ah now i understand what you mean. It could be done through Patcher i assume aswell. I use fl studio myself.

I totally love its sonic madness.

Maybe just a little more clarity to the meaning of his controls, and the fun randomize option and you're done.

I agree - this one's already an amazing synth in a "pre-alpha" state. I discovered it through OSC this month, and I'm having so much fun right now - cool rhythm patterns, great percussion and pads, crazy fm stuff with constantly changing movement - so good!

The only thing I can think of in terms of improvements, and this could just be down to my incompetence, is that I've had some trouble getting nice, even curves with a slow osc attack - I find it's too slow at the start, and when the sound sets in the crescendo's a bit too violent. But I think you mentioned somewhere that you changed the filter curves in an update - maybe you changed the osc curves as well? If so, I'm sorry for bringing it up here - I'm too far into my OSC track, so I don't dare to replace the version I'm currently using, v.0.7.4., until I've finished my entry. :-)

Thanks for an excellent synth!

Yeah, this is what I felt was missing from Juce - limited movement capabilities in terms of movement. Crust has so many possibilities I feel like i need 8 arms to try them all at once :)

Yeh don't ruin the synth it's great already! Thou i would love an option to have an extra adsr and/or lfo which could be connected to basically any of the knobs.... ;) Or did i just not figure it out yet?

edit: and yes i know this is doable with external plugins / automation but i feel like this would be a nice addition to the crazyness :)

Thank you guys, I'm glad you're digging the crazyness of Crust :) It was intentional and I'm definitely keeping it. As to the improvements/requests:
- envelope attack needs some more improvement indeed, I've got this note from several different musicians and designers
- there are no modulators as of yet (except for the shivers and the filter envelope), but I want to add some later
- randomize button seems a nice idea

Anyone here on this thread have some insight on why the developer has been banned? Completely out of nowhere and makes no sense to me, so very curious. :shrug:
Just a touch of EQ and a tickle of compression

I've asked 1eqinfinity on vk.com -- he is totally confused about this fact. He said that moderator didn't respond him for direct "why" question.
