crusher-X receives MIDI Control data that is generated by a small HTML5 page using WebRTC and MIDI output running in Chrome
The crusher-X 10.30 update is a free update for crusher-X 10. It comes with a multichannel standalone macOS app and enhanced MIDI control and Macro features that were developed on request for the musician, composer and DJ Aphex Twin to be used at the Field Day 2023 outdoor music festival, Victoria Park London
Utilizing crusher-X with a modular synth input opens up a world of possibilities for creating slow transitions and drone morphings. The combination of the modular synth's diverse sound generation capabilities and crusher-X's granular synthesis engine allows for captivating and evolving sonic journeys.
By feeding the output of your modular synth into crusher-X, you can explore gradual transitions between different timbres, textures, and tonalities. The granular synthesis engine of crusher-X enables you to break down the input signal into tiny grains, manipulate their parameters, and create smooth transitions between them. This lends itself well to crafting slow, seamless sonic transformations and morphing drones.
As you experiment with crusher-X's granular synthesis controls, such as grain size, density, pitch, and modulation options, you can sculpt intricate and evolving soundscapes. The ability to manipulate these parameters in real-time gives you full control over the progression and character of your transitions and drone morphings.
The modular synth input serves as a rich source of raw material, while crusher-X adds depth, complexity, and a granular touch to the sounds. The result is a dynamic and evolving sonic landscape that takes your audience on a mesmerizing journey through slow transitions and captivating drone morphings.
Whether you're performing live or working on studio productions, the combination of crusher-X and a modular synth input opens up a wide range of creative possibilities, allowing you to push the boundaries of sound design and create unique, atmospheric, and immersive musical experiences.
Version 10 of crusher-X comes with a completely reworked morph system. It allows to morph up to 3600 seconds between the most parameters in a smooth way. And one can create a self defined morph curve that allows to morph with a specific "drama" in mind. With that possibility a simple morph between patches transforms to an individual designed "sound gesture".
