crusher-X is a granular synthesizer and granulize effect plug-in for Windows (VST 2.4 32bit and 64bit) and macOS (AU, VST 64bit).
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.
