Crisalys is a pattern sequencer synthesizer.

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.

Using it for 5 minutes, barely scratched the surface of what it can do but the possibilities look very promising !

Chrysalys is one of the best synths ever made. I make great music with it.

Good synth. However, this uses as much cpu as Serum or Diva on the best sounding pad patches, without the sound quality. Will maybe some of the sounds as layers to use in tunes. I would use this a lot if the cpu weren't so silly.
