greenoak Crystal

Crystal is a semi-modular VST software synthesizer featuring both subtractive synthesis and frequency modulation (FM) synthesis. It offers abundant modulation control with over 80 parameters which may be modulated, multi-stage envelopes with graphical editors, extensive tempo sync of envelopes/lforates/delay times, built-in effects for chorus/flanging/comb filtering/echoes, and a band splitter for effects processing by frequency band. The musical applications for Crystal are literally boundless.

Crystal uses a lot of memory and cpu. It contains four 10 second delay effects, so between that, the GUI graphics, and everything else, it requires about 20Mb of memory. So, on the Mac, you'll have to add 20Mb to your Cubase memory allocation by using Get Info in the Finder. Note to Logic users: Logic 5 is highly recommended instead of Logic 4. If you're using Logic 4, you're probably already well aware of its limitations with VST, especially with plugins as complex as Crystal. Many of these problems have been fixed in Logic 5.

A G4 is the minimum cpu to use Crystal on a Mac comfortably (or a better than 500MHz cpu if you're on a PC). Crystal is rather cpu-intensive. Simple modular synthesizers have already been done. My goal with Crystal was to offer something more. So, by its very nature, it will require more cpu than a basic modular synth.

Crystal is a VST plugin, which means it runs within a VST host, such as Cubase, Orion, Logic, Fruity Loops, etc.

Here's the 5 screens so you can see the features, it does complexed evolving sounds and atmospheres etc.
