CrazyRhythm is a MIDI controller designed to create complex rhythms and the second plugin of the 'Crazy' series. It allows you to create custom rhythms using note lengths, ratios, time signatures, a programmable rhythm and measures section. It also has MIDI output for all 5 channels so another VST plugin, such as a drum synth, can be controlled with it.
Rhythms can also be saved and loaded as custom .crhythm files.

The concept: a different approach.
The plugins of the 'Crazy' series are based on a different approach to measures and rhythms, in particular poly-rhythms. Instead of using predefined note lengths to create a time signature the plugins use tempo ratios between the different notes. The base tempo used is your DAW project tempo.

Example:
A ratio of 1 against 2 at 120BPM would make a time signature of 120BPM against 240BPM, in other words: the notes that have a ratio of 2 are played twice as fast as the notes that have a ratio of 1.
In the "old way" this would be a time signature of 1/2 or 2/4, etc.

Okay, but what is the difference?
By using tempo ratios instead of note lengths you can essentially set the note lengths to anything. What about a ratio of PI against the square-root of 2? Or any other decimal number? By using ratios we can create time signatures and poly-rhythms that would otherwise be very hard to create through conventional means.

I ordered CrazyRhythm through KVR 8 days ago. Evil Turtle Productions were supposed to send an email with download instructions, but despite further queries to their support email, they haven't responded in any way. KVR has been in touch with me and I have no issues at all with KVR. Whatever is up with the person or people running Evil Turtle Productions however, I'd suggest that people avoid this product until the issue is resolved.

[Updated 4th September 2020. The day after posting the above review (which at the time I gave one star to], I received a link to the product. No explanation was given for the delay. I installed it and tried it out, and I'm perfectly happy with it. It pretty much does what it is described as doing, so I have nothing to add beyond it being straightforward to install and use, and potentially a lot of fun.

I then contacted the seller again, the same day, to say that I would be updating this review and to see if they wanted to add anything. I sent that email to both the support and sales emails. Since then, I've heard nothing.

I've updated the product version in the review window from 'n/a' (because I had no product) to 'unknown' because I can't find a product version, even in the .exe file details panel.

The bottom line is that support seems to be non-existent. If you buy it, you might be able to download it eventually or you might not. If you do, you will have a good product to play with, but if you have any questions, you'll be on your own. Sad.].
