What you can do in KRISTAL Audio Engine before anything else is creating new songs. The program’s friendly interface allows you to load various audio files and arrange them to create a new piece.
There are 16 audio tracks available in KRISTAL Audio Engine, and you can easily resize, cut and edit every item that you load.
The main component of this audio processing suite is the 32 bit floating point KRISTAL Audio Engine, a powerful tool providing downmix to 16/24/32 bit audio files, 2 VST insert slots per channel, 3 VST master effect slots, 4 KRYSTAL plugin shots, and ASIO low latency audio driver support. Some of the most common audio formats are supported: Ogg Vorbis, WAVE, FLAC and AIFF.
KRISTAL Audio Engine’s features are extended with the help of three plugins: KRISTAL Effects (multi delay, chorus, reverb and kristalizer), KRISTAL LiveIN (it enables you to connect your microphone or guitar and play through KRISTAL while using VST effects in realtime), and KRISTAL Waver. KRISTAL Waver is the sequencer plugin for KRISTAL, offering ASIO input monitoring, multichannel hard disk recording via ASIO/MME, audio clip arrangement, unlimited undo/redo, AES31 export and audio clip fade in, fade out, and crossfade.
KRISTAL Audio Engine may not be the most comprehensive application of its kind, but on the other hand its work platform is more than sufficient for average users who want to get familiar with audio recording and mixing.
The application has a modular design; the main application provides the mixing console, while other features, such as the live audio input and the audio sequencer were added as separate plugins.
