crusherX-Studio! is a granular synthesizer and effect VST plug-in (32 & 64bit) for Windows PCs. Its powerful real-time granular vapor synthesizer algorithm  synthesizes very complex sounds and multichannel surround waves. Features: Over 120 presets, stereo and 10 channel surround outputs (e.g. 5.1, 6.1, 7.1, 8.2, 9.1), advanced parameter editor with physical modeling faders and X/Y controller and 3D grain visualization, over 150 free assignable real-time parameters, real-time MIDI and plugin parameter control, parameter morphing system, parameter phase modulation (spreading modulations over several grain stream generators), grain quantization to host, long grain lengths, individual grain overdrive, filtering and X-crush grain processing. Shadow program feature (reset to previous defined program sets). Unlimited undo/redo and randomize functionalities. Feedback system. Several granulation live buffer and freeze modes. Automatic triggered grain buffer filling modes. Includes hundreds of different tuning scales, MIDI keyboard control of grain effect.

it is more than sound... it is more than music ... it is the crusher!
it is the crusher... for your studio!

What's new?

crusherX-Studio! 5 clearly focused on the needs of professionals: Native 64bit support is provided and this enables the enhancement of grain lengths and modulation depths up to 60sec. It open the door towards huge, massive and long lasting evolving sound clouds. More than 10 Surround sound modes (like 5.1, 6.1, 7.1, 8.2, 9.1) enabling surround sound effect productions without additional post effect wiring. A sync to host feature links the granular parameter flow to the host timeline.

Additional unique features:

  • The X-Crush granular parameter (invented by accSone 2014) is unique in the world of granular synthesis: It adds a special asymmetric ring-modulation transformation feed by the overlap of each grain with its successor. While interacting dynamical with the other vapor parameters X-Crush will lead from subtitle ringing artifacts up to extreme phase shifting and distortion sounds
  • Several background assistances ensures quick workflows like grain density editing
  • Innovative Tuning feature allows creating grain clouds that are tuned. Beside the well tempered standard scale the package contains thousands of historical, experimental, microtonal and exotic non western intonation scales that can be used to manipulate the pitch of the grains. Play the cloud with your midi keyboard!
  • Stoppable live grain buffer that can also hosts audio files
  • Saving the content of the live grain buffer to disk at any time
  • Control the grain pitch and volumes with a midi keyboard
  • Starting and stopping of the grain generation will not create transitions because a smooth small fading is automatically calculated
  • A sizable and separated Grain view window shows the grains in detail
  • Multi CPU grain generation. That means a drastic increase of the grain amount in real-time
  • A Overdrive wave shaping algorithm generates strange grain overdrive effects that are ideally used together with guitar input sounds. The overdrive curve can be edited via a feature rich spline editor
  • The granular engine supports multichannel input processing
  • All interface elements can be assigned to controllers through an easy to use midi / plugin parameter learning function
  • A context sensitive help systems allows direct link to the various help topics
