Eccentric drones, sequences, and multichannel effects are achievable, as is real-time MIDI manipulation and processing of live or prerecorded audio. 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 7.5 provides over 130 presets. Utilize over 250 freely assignable real-time parameters including physical modeling faders and X/Y control for detailed and expansive control over your sonic creations. Each of the 13 Adore parameters allows multiple Vapor settings to be adjusted via a single control and can be morphed at will.

A vowel-style formant filter along with pitch-tracking and auto-tune functions open the door to humanized sound shapes and scale-based pitch transformation. This software can be used live, in a DJ context, or in studio settings, allowing you to manipulate prerecorded audio or build a new world of tones. It is compatible with Mac and Windows platforms and operates in host programs that support VST or Audio Units plug-in formats.

What's New in Version 7.5

  • Smart latency compensation button/functionality to ensure beat synchronicity in track-/loop-based productions
  • Multichannel free editable compressor/expander/limiter at the output stage. Has channel linked and non-linked mode
  • Adds overall Morph Modulation Speed to 0 Hz Mode that allows morphing with no vapor modulations back and forth
  • Allows impressive interactive changes between modulated and static drones
  • Grain-to-MIDI feature translates the current grain volumes per generator into individual MIDI controller streams
  • Supports multimedia/light/DMX installations
  • Adds global modes for Mixer settings to decouple mixer settings from switching programs
  • New MIDI MPE Free mode that allows continuous MPE control without stopping grains on MIDI key off
  • Adds new panning processing that leads to much more distinctive grain panning modulations
  • AR vapor modulation mode that allows modulation from the Attack/Release MIDI section without any velocity impact
  • Automatic range selection on moving ranged sliders
  • Disablement of the overload grain protection when host renders offline (enables huge mass grain processing beyond current CPU capacities)
  • Protection to plug-in parameter assignments in control mapping
  • Program reset plug-in parameter
  • DCO waveform plug-in parameter
  • Initial patch load after importing a sound package
  • Global settings panel
  • Reset to factory default button in global settings panel
  • Adds a reset of the Overdrive spline when resetting the Overdrive modulation

 

What Changed in Version 6 and 7
