FKFX resurrects KrishnaSynth back from 32-bit times (incl. 64-bit, VST3, Apple Silicon, free version)


Originally released in 2007 by Devine Machine, KrishnaSynth is making a comeback from 32-bit times as KrishnaSynth Legacy, which has been rewritten by FKFX to meet current standards. It's now available as 64-bit, Apple Silicon native (M1, etc.), VSTi3, AU, and is a "strict copy" of the original 32-bit version, with the same sound, and all its thousand presets.

The synth comes with over 1000 acoustic, electric, and synth sounds and is equipped with its original synthesis features called Frame Oscillator, allowing for the creation and modification of new textures textures by drag & dropping external audio files.

The full version costs $49 and contains 1230 presets and 2132 movie files. A free version with 88 presets, audio to osc import and preset randomizer disabled is also available on FKFX's new website.
