CRISALYS VSTi

 

 
 

DESCRIPTION

Crisalys is a software synthesizer characterized by a powerful audio engine which can work up to 192Khz. The three oscillators are driven by custom waveforms designed specifically to grant top quality sound in any situation. Each oscillator has built-in FM, Ring Modulator and Cross Modulation options controlled by three separate internal LFOs. The Ring Modulator can achieve sound characteristics that can go beyond the common sonorities of this effect, thanks to an internal custom circuit which has been developed for this purpose.

The audio path continues through two multifilters which can operate as state variable filters, analog emulations or in EQ mode. The modulation section offers, in addition to the classic controls (modulation wheel, aftertouch, velocity, etc.), four LFOs, two aux envelopes and two step LFOs which can be used as modulation sources to create atmospheric pads, control the filters, create rhythmic sequences and so on. Each LFO has a special "Quantize" control which can be used to introduce a small (or huge, if turned fully clockwise) variation to the LFO wave and sync speed. Used on pads this can produce interesting effects, adding some granulosity to the sound.


The effect section includes a classic stereo flanger, a delay (which can work in classic or cross mode), a compressor and a reverb. Crisalys features eight built-in step sequencers (up to 32 steps) which can work all at the same time. The active pattern can be edited manually or recorded in realtime using an external MIDI keyboard. The sequencer patterns can be stored in the hard disk as separate pattern files or as a bank of 64 patterns.

USERS COMMENTS

 "Sometimes i was a bit confused about WHY a specific sound does sound that great. I found that Crisalys seems to have it's own sound which due to lack of better words i would describe as "liquid" or "organic".
As reasons besides great sound design I found that the analog filters (especially the MS filter), the Reverb and also some Panning modulation (with LFO) seem to be part of what i really like about those sounds. Of course also the built-in step sequencer is very powerful. The strength of Crisays is maybe not about "pure analog" sounds but more in "hybrid" or more digital sounds. The built-in EQ seems to be useful to improve the low end if necessary."

 "Crisalys sounds awesome. I just tried Rapture in 2012 and liked the engine quality, Crisalys sounds like a high-quality tool too with a different approach." - Peter Toriello

 "Hey man, that plugin is amazing , I really like it." - Dillio t2k

 "Great sound and a nice interface!" - Joshua

 "Looks and sounds great. The built-in sequencers are fantastic!" - Paolo

 "Tested the DEMO, WOW! The sequencer made my mind up!" - Magnus Thysk

 "I love the sequencer! Beautiful GUI and a lot of excellent preset sounds." - Justin

 "It's a great synth! It's fun to play with it, I like the responsiveness of the filters, tweaking leads to instant results. I listen to a lot of Berlin School type music, so the way Crisalys is built for sequencing is right up my street." - Numanoid

 "I just wanted to tell you how great your instruments are. Crisalys is FANTASTIC and the others sound awesome." - Mike

 "I love Crisalys! Thank you for such an awesome synth!" - Forrest Gore
