Perform the seasons.

Acrux Seasons is a digital instrument inspired by the natural world. As you play your way through the seasons, watch as thin twigs scattered among snowflakes make way for a vibrant summer of sonic multicolour. The keys, colours, backgrounds and natural environment all change to give each season its own distinct user interface and sound design.

Taking it centre stage.

Acrux Seasons is powered by a high-quality audio library featuring samples of the original Acrux. The percussive sound of the Acrux keys allow it to cut through complex soundscapes and arrangements, enabling it to perform well as the lead melodic element to collaborative, large scale performances or recording sessions. The possibilities are endless!
