Crossfade Loop Synth v2


Crossfade Loop Synth v3 is here!


Crossfade Loop Synth is a simple sample playback synth plug-in.

It plays samples in the classic sampler manner - by simply altering the playback speed according to the desired note. No fancy timestretching or pitchshifting is applied.

You can control how the sample is looped as it is played. An adjustable amount of crossfade can be applied to the loop endpoints to smooth the transitions. This makes it extremely easy to produce glitch-free pad sounds.

The loops can also be played backwards and alternately forwards and backwards (pendulum-style).

Further sound processing can be applied in the form of overdrive/saturation, filtering and envelopes.

The synth is 32 note polyphonic, and all parameters can be controlled by MIDI controllers.

If you'd like to read more about the plug-in before downloading it, the user manual is online here.

The previous version (1.3) is freeware, and still available here.

System Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.2.8 or higher (10.4.11 or higher recommended)
  • Audio Unit or VST host application

Purchasing

Initially the plug-in runs in demo mode, in which it is fully functional, except that it will time-out after 15 minutes of use. Simply reloading the plug-in resets the time-out.

To remove the time-out, you can purchase a registration. The price is $10 (US dollars, plus VAT if applicable).

A registration allows you to install the plug-in on up to three computers at once.
