REVOLUTION-CRE8 LITE is a full featured Reversing Virtual Instrument that utilizes 2 layers of sample synthesis making it one of the most unique and capable reversing sample library instruments available anywhere. REVOLUTION-CRE8 LITE works in stand-alone mode as well as all plugin formats across Mac and PC via the free Steinberg HALion Sonic SE Player. There are no restrictions and it will never time out. It is powered by our CRE8 Engine that aims to be simple, intuitive and yet powerful and capable. We want everyone to be able to experience what our instruments are capable of without demo restrictions.  




  • PHRASE LOOPING - Play any phrase with a length as short as a 8th note or as long as 8 Beats and it will loop in reverse automatically.

  • NOTE VALUE KEY SWITCHING - Reversing Layers 1 and 2 can have their note values key switched independently in real-time.  For example Layer 1 can be set to a Whole note while Layer 2 can be set to Half or Quarter notes creating complex and interesting reverse poly rhythms. 

  • 2 DIFFERENT INSTRUMENT SOURCES (LITE VERSION) - We have sampled 2 different instruments (26 different instruments in FULL VERSION) with repeated note values of various lengths.  This allows you to have chords or phrases repeating in note values of 16th, 8th, Quarter, Half, Whole, or 8 Beats (2 Whole Notes). The instruments are: Acoustic Guitar 12 String and Electric Piano 2.

  • MIRROR-SLING SHOT PATCHES -  Both instruments have patches that allow you to play them in a normal forward sound that then reverses back in a mirrored fashion.

  • Presets have up to 2 Layers

  • Load patches in up to 16 slots that can be used multi-timbral or layered by assigning patches to the same MIDI channel.

When switching to the ADVANCED Page, the Upper section remains fixed. This section all about having instant access to all the parameters that you will use most of the time without the need to jump to other screens.  

The Lower section is where you will find more in-depth parameters for the Oscillators, Motion Controls, FX, Arppegiator and Midi Player, and filter controls via XY Pads.

Revolution-CRE8 LITE Advanced Arp & MIDI

The ARP Page

This is an advanced 32-step Arpeggiator based on Yamaha’s legendary Motif Technology with extensive programming and modulation features. The Arpeggiator offers many parameters for programming phrases and altering tempo, groove and swing. Three additional controller lanes are available for quick and easy step modulation for oscillator and filter parameters.


The phrases of the arpeggiator can be recorded internally and exported to the DAW via drag and drop to make them accessible as editable MIDI events.  Additionally, you can store and trigger 8 different phrases on the fly in real time without ever losing sync.

The entire Arpeggiator settings can be locked to keep phrases even when browsing the available presets.


This is a simple midi file phrase player that you can drag and drop midi files to and from your DAW.   Additionally, you can store and trigger 8 different phrases on the fly in real time without ever losing sync.

The XY Page

Revolution-CRE8 LITE Advanced XY Page.PN

The XY Page is a simple layout with 3 XY controller boxes. The first XY box controls the Main FX Filter when it is set to dual or quad Morphing modes. 

The second and third XY boxes are tied to the fixed Lo Pass and Hi Pass Filters that are found on the Main Page.  This is a very fun and creative way to automate these filters.


Browse through the patch library with ease and find what you need quickly thanks to the detailed tagging system and large viewing window that is part of the MediaBay sound management system.

The browser can also open "undocked" and be resized up to full screen size.

The Quick Controls

8 Pre-assigned controls at the bottom of the screen allow for quick access to the most commonly used parameters. 

The Motion knob can control all the motion and pulsing of a patch. It defaults to full motion but can dial the motion all the way down to no movement at all. 

* PAN LFO is excluded from the Motion Quick control knob.

The Trigger Pads

8 Trigger pads are assigned to the Arpeggiater's 8 possible patterns.  These can be triggered "on the fly" all without losing sync in real time.

The pads can also be assigned to the 8 patterns on the Midi Player page.
