buero </stelkens> has announced the new VST plugin crusherX-Studio! for PC Windows. crusherX-Studio! is the pure VST version of the crusherX-Live! stand alone granular synth that is developed and worldwide distributed since 1998 by buero </stelkens>.
Based on traditional granular synthesis, crusherX-Studio! can be used as a multichannel granular morphing effect on any kind of sound source. Its powerful vapor synthesis algorithm creates very complex and unheard cool waves that are processed in real-time. The interface has features like physical modelling faders and the physical modelling X/Y-controller.
The VST 2.3 format plugin comes with 97 sound design presets and 102 real time parameters. Up to 10 separate surround outputs allow extremely impressive sound installations and multichannel compositions. An overall multidimensional morphing system morphs the sound between each parameter changes (e.g. on bank/preset loading or on undo/redo). This creates clouds of sweeping, shifting and graining sounds. Import and export buttons allow parameter exchanging between crusherX-Live! and crusherX-Studio!. crusherX-Studio! can be totally synchronized to the bar positions of the host sequencer by new quantization functions. English, French and German language is supported by the help system and the editor.
