crusherX-Live! 6.14
granular synthesis sound system


About crusherX-Live!
crusherX-Live! 6.14  is a stand alone synthesizer application whose powerful real-time granular synthesizer algorithm enables you to synthesize very complex sounds and cool multichannel waves. crusherX-Live! does distill and transform sounds quite radically. Based on traditional granular synthesis, crusherX-Live! can be used as a synthesizer or as a versatile effects unit. Features: up to 10 channel ASIO/DirectX, realt-ime or fileb ased grain generation, MIDI, Effects, Sampler, FM DCO, joystick force feedback interaction, physical modelling X/Y controller.

it is more than sound... it is more than music ... it is the crusher!

What's new?
With crusherX-Live! 6 you will explore new static sound dimensions: Stop the live grain buffer and load your favorite audio file into the vapor buffer. Let the grains dance on your file and trust your ears! Play this cloud with your midi keyboard and enjoy the new global Midi Mode. Speed up your performance by controlling the volumes direct in the level meters. Run the live vapor buffer mode and save the content of the current buffer to disk at any time. Starting and stopping the live vapor mode will not create transitions because a smooth small fading is automatically calculated. crusher-Live! 6 supports Windows 8
Requirements to run crusherX-Live!
crusher-X comes with a DSP engine that runs on Win platforms with standard soundcards.
crusher-X Algorithm

The crusher-X algorithm is based on the traditional granular synthesis algorithm (Xenakis, Roads, Wilkins) invented in the early 1950s. In granular synthesis, short (e.g. 50 milliseconds) sound fragments, "the grains," come from a fixed file buffer. The starting time, length and silence between the grains can be modulated. More than one grain at a time is possible, so you can create complex sound "clouds" from any sound signal.
