accSone 11-31322 overview

  • 1Description

Available for download, accSone crusher-X 6 is a virtual instrument capable of truly strange sounds. The algorithm behind crusher-X 6 is modeled on the fundamentals of granular synthesis, allowing you to manipulate sound in short millisecond increments labeled “grains.” Within each grain, aspects such as the starting time and overall length can be modified in a variety of ways. As such, this virtual instrument is suitable for sound designers, avant-garde composers, electronic musicians, esoteric producers, and more.

Eccentric drones, sequences, and multichannel effects are achievable, as is real-time MIDI manipulation. You’ll find various and assignable modulations to facilitate your experimentation sessions. However, to help you learn this tool—or to get you going quickly in creating strange soundscapes—crusher-X 6 provides over 130 presets. Undo/Redo is on hand, should you wish to go back a step, as is a randomize function, if you’d like to introduce a bit of chaos into the mix.

This software can be used live, in a DJ context, or in studio settings, allowing you to manipulate pre-recorded audio. It’s quite handy, for instance, in securing esoteric guitar tones within a DAW. The software is compatible with Mac and Windows platforms. It can operate in VST or AU formats, and works in both 32-bit (for Windows) and 64-bit (Mac and Windows). For a list of features new to version 6, please read the feature section below. 

New to Version 6
  • Vapor Modulations overview eliminates guessing in your modulations, giving you a clear visual readout
  • Panels redistributed in GUI to make room for the Vapor Modulation Overview
  • Cloud modulation redefined in Global modulations
  • Spline window now fixed in place
  • Stretching modulations across generators now possible
  • Spread parameter modulates with different frequency offsets for each generator
  • New Diffuse processor generating 10 independent reverbs inside grains
  • Reverb Memory can be taken from one grain to another, diffusing the grain content but not its output; this allows for sharp grain edges while retaining an overall warm sound
  • Reworked Sweep processor with three sweep modes now available
  • Dual phase sliders reconfigured into a single, bipolar phase slider
  • New step-editor
  • Modulations can be synced to host beat and spline editor
  • New Autotune feature generates pitch aggregations and compensations using the grain engine
  • Force to Base Key steers grain engine to pin output pitch down to a tone independent from the output path
  • New modulation modes, including Random Sync, Sample & Hold, Random each Grain, RandLine Sync, Rand S&H Sync, and more
  • New Follow Pitch functions tailor modulation settings to specific pitches
Key Features at a Glance
  • Over 130 presets, stereo and 10 channel surround outputs (e.g. 5.1, 6.1, 7.1, 8.2, 9.1)
  • Up to 199 grain streams that are processed multi-threaded (multi-core CPU support) 
  • Advanced parameter editor with physical modeling faders and a physical-modeling X/Y controller 
  • 3D grain visualization
  • Over 190 free assignable real-time plug-in parameters
  • Real-time MIDI control, morphing system, parameter-phase and frequency-spread modulations (spreading modulations over several grain-stream generators)
  • Modulation and grain quantization to host
  • Pitch-tracking and auto-tune system with keyboard input and visualization
  • Long real-time grain lengths
  • Individual grain overdrive
  • Filtering, X-crush, and diffuse-grain processing 
  • Shadow programs 
  • Unlimited undo/redo and randomize functionalities
  • Several granulation live buffer and freeze modes
  • Automatic triggered grain buffer filling modes
  • Comes with over 100 different tuning scales, as well as MIDI keyboard control of grain effect
