Granular synthesis revolutionized Sound Design, Electronic and Experimental Music. crusher-X does advanced granular synthesis on your live input in real-time! It's more than sound... it's more than music ... it's the crusher!
Its powerful algorithm creates very complex sounds, drones and outstanding surround effects. The crusher-X trademark is known since 1999 as "the" granular effect standard. crusher-X is used by famous sound-designers, composers, musicians and film-makers all over the world. The professional, open-minded and curious "crusher-X community" creates outstanding, unique, multi dimensional sonic pieces.
