The fundamental four-generator, two-filter design is the same here as it was in CronoX 3 - LinPlug’s previous sampling synth. CrX4 offers three sample-based sources (Time Sampler, Wavetable and Loop Sampler), a flexible analogue-modelled oscillator, plus a new noise generator.
In terms of sounds CrX4 definitely leans more towards the creative. Sonically, it's more digital than analogue in flavour, and the sheer flexibility of the modulation system combined with the super-fast LFOs (up to 275Hz) only emphasises this further.
Overall, CrX4 sits somewhere between a typical sample-based instrument and a virtual analogue one, making it an excellent and affordable companion synth.4 Stars
