The main focus of the Superbooth 2017 was hardware Synthesizers and Eurorack modules. Beside these companies, some software companies could be also found on the floors. One of these is the german developer accSone with the Crusher-X Granular Synthesizer.
Crusher-X is a very unique software Synthesizer and effect plugin because it doesn’t work with samples like traditional granular Synthesizers but with pre-recorded or live-audio. This means, you don’t need to load in samples but the instrument take the audio directly from your DAW. One benefit of this is that you can use it as live performance tool with real-time created audio. A lot of people doesn’t stop at his booth because they was mainly interested in hardware stuff but for me one of the best news at the software side. Check out my video where you get some more informations about Crusher-X Synthesizer for PC and Mac.
Its powerful algorithm creates very complex sounds, drones and outstanding multichannel effects. crusher-X does distill and transform per-recorded or live-audio input quite radically. crusher-X is a trademark that is known since 1999 as “the” granular effect standard that allows a very deep control of grains and layered grain-streams in real-time. crusher-X is in use 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 and thrilled their enthuses audience in great live-shows.
