FKFX Audio Brings Back KrishnaSynth


FKFX let us know that they are re-releasing KrishnaSynth, which was originally released in 2007.

KrishnaSynth has been rewritten to meet current standards, but is a “strict copy” of the original 32-bit version, with the same sound, and all its thousand presets.

Here’s what the developer has to say about KrishaSynth:

“It offers over 1000 acoustic, electric, and synth sounds and is equipped with its original synthesis features, called frame oscillator. This synthesis technology allows for import, building, and modification of textures from sampled instruments and synth waveforms.

It also includes a comprehensive set of DSP functions and effects, along with 5 LFOs with high rate capabilities, polyphonically synced on note frequencies.”

It’s available now, for both Mac & Windows.
