MaxSynths releases Cryologic
MaxSynths has released Cryologic, a virtual instrument for Windows PC.
Cryologic is a soundfont library and a soundfont player very simple and easy to understand. The SF-Oscillators allow to layer up to three sounds with separate control for level, pan, and octave for each osc. The filter is a classic state variable filter tweakable also via the X-Y controller. The two arpeggiators are a powerful feature which allows to create interesting patches, complex automatic bass lines, chord accompaniment and complex textures. The onboard reverb, delay and an internal ring modulator effect provides the final touch to this little yet powerful music production tool. A Soundfont library of 456MB is provided.
Until the 1st of March, the Cryologic SF player (including the soundfont library) is available for pre-order for 15 EUR (regular price 30 EUR).
