  • X-Fade solves a common problem for composers: transitioning between instruments or articulations.

    Load two instruments into midi channels 1 & 2, then use a cc fader to control the crossfade (using cc7 / cc11 midi data).

    Adjust the steepness of the curve, from an equal power crossfade to linear crossfade.

    Fine-tune your settings to control where the cross fade begins / ends.

    Compatible Sample Players: Kontakt, Spitfire Audio Player, SINE, Eastwest Play (not Opus).

    Available as a VST3, VST3 instrument, AU.

    **Mac M1 only works in Rosetta**

  • Match top volumes by making cuts.

  • Adjust the start/end points of your crossfade.

  • Dial the steepness of the curve from linear to equal-power crossfade.

  • Crossfade between either 2 or 3 layers.


-Cubase Users: This plugin loads as a separate instrument track, and you direct the midi output into your target instrument(s).

-It's recommended (though not required) that you have a cc controller to control the crossfade. One that's not currently being used for cc1(modwheel)/cc7(volume).

-Grumpy Monkey's Volume system has some specific quirks. (More info here.)

-Spitfire Audio Player requires an instance of X-Fade per instrument (because SFA Player is not multitimbral).

-Studio One, FL Studio Users: This plugin is currently not confirmed to work on these DAWs because of the dependence on midi channels.

-Mac M1 only works in Rosetta. Full Apple Silicon is currently not supported.
