Crossfade Loop Synth

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.
Intel only, 32/64 bit, for OS X 10.6 and above.

This version adds a preferences option to ignore AudioUnit Reset messages, sent by some DAWs (notably Logic and Live) on transport start/stop, which means that the effect version’s recording buffer doesn’t get wiped when stopping/starting the transport.

    What an unbeleivably useful sampler, not since the Casio SK-1 has a sampler been this...fun! It is the first software sampler I have had that made the Jan Jelinek/ASR-10 loop scanning technique easy in a sequencer (and I own THOUSANDS of dollars worth of samplers!). This may be the best $10 I have spent...in my life!

    Load a sample, put some FX behind it.. sounds like a true sampler. The free one works great, but doesn't have the GUI or as many built in fx the shareware one has.

    version 2.1.4, MacOS X UB
    Excellent, tout juste ce qu'il me fallait en tout cas.
    Le principe ? et bien, c'est ni plus ni moins qu'un sampleur virtuel sous forme de plug AU et VST.
    Lancez le plug sur une piste midi, chargez un sample (wave ou aiff maxi 24 bit), et jouez le tout sur un clavier midi ou directement depuis son séquenceur.
    Si vous possédez une surface de contrôle midi, il est possible d'y assigner des potards, et la fonction "reverse" sur un potard en midi est un vrai régal.
    L'interface graphique a été mis à jour dans cette dernière version, et du coup, elle est bien agréable, avec forme d'onde apparente.
    Le prix ? 8,50 HT donc 10,17 TTC en euros bien sûr.
    Alors pourquoi s'en priver ? merci Expert Sleepers ! j'en veux encore des bon plug comme celui-ci !
    Ah si... un ptit défaut : aucun potard virtuel ne précise quel paramètre il modifie, alors on y va cool et on apprend, remarque y'a pas 5000 paramètres non plus. Simple mais très efficace.
