LinPlug releases CrX4 for Mac OS X (AU/RTAS/VST) and Windows (VST)

LinPlug has announced the release of their CrX4 Sample Synthesizer plug-in for Mac OS X and Windows.

CrX4 is the successor to their CronoX 3 and uses all kinds of samples as raw material for synthesis. CrX4 includes a range of virtual analogue features such as a variety of oscillators, unison detuning, amplitude and frequency modulation, the unique free-type-filter, an arpeggiator, and a modulation matrix, sophisticated LFOs and a comprehensive effects section.

LinPlug says that the key feature of CrX4 which distinguishes it from other synths is its unique sampling engine and its free-type-filter which allows sounds no other instrument can produce. LinPlug states these features and the CrX4 real-time modulation options supports highly expressive performances and complex evolving sounds.

Main Features (short list):

  • Time-Sampler with real-time modulatable time-stretching and pitch-shifting.
  • Wavetable Generator that offers wavetable operations on any sample (modulatable).
  • Loop Sampler Generator with real-time modulatable loop-points and sample-start.
  • Additional analogue-modelled Oscillator and versatile Noise Oscillator.
  • Free Filter with unique, continuously modulatable filter-type (LP->BP->HP->BR->LP).
  • 7 ADSFR or AHDSR-type envelopes for various purposes and 4 LFOs (up to 275 Hz).
  • Modulation Matrix with 10 routings and 68 destinations.
  • "MIDI Learn" function for easy controller assignment.
  • 6 simultaneously available multi effect units.
  • More than 1000 factory presets from some of the world's finest sound designers.

Main new features in comparison to CronoX 3:

  • Much feature enhanced and faster LFOs.
  • Envelopes switchable between ADSFR and AHDSR with shape now individually.
  • Adjustable for every phase.
  • Enhanced oscillators allowing more modulation and wider modulation ranges.
  • All-on-one-edit-page design with much larger sample display.
  • New noise oscillator with double filter, pitching and cross modulation.
  • Switchable CronoX 2 sound compatibility (automatically on loading CronoX 2 presets).
  • New editing functions (typically load, save, copy, paste and init for many modules).
  • All sample content comes now in WAV format (for easier processing outside CrX4).
  • New preset browser with full size bank or patch view.
  • About 500 reworked CronoX 3 presets + currently about 200 new presets, more planned.

System Requirements:

  • AU or VST capable host software.
  • Minimum 1.5 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 2 GB Disk Space 1280 x 800 screen.
  • Recommended 2 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 1280 x 800 or better screen.
  • PC: Windows XP or newer, either 32- or 64-bit, including Windows 8.
  • Mac: Mac OS X 10.5 or newer, either 32- or 64-bit including OS X 10.8.


CrX4 is exclusively available as download from LinPlug. It comes with a 70 page English manual in PDF format and more than 1000 factory presets.

The license fee is $149 / €119. The upgrade from either CronoX 2 or CronoX 3 is both $39 / €29.

A demo version is available at www.linplug.com.
