The Grain Crusher is a Max for Live device which performs “Extreme Grain Manipulation”. It is essentially a noise and glitch FSU audio effect: you can get a lot of strange and unique sounds from its 3 processing modules: the Delay Modulator, the Frequency Mangler and the External Loop. The Grain Crusher runs in Ableton Live […]

What is it? Pulsaret is a new interactive real-time program by Alessandro Petrolati for asynchronous/synchronous prototypes granular synthesis. Pulsaret implements a wide range of time-domain varieties of granular synthesis: glisson, grainlet, trainlet pulsar etc… Sound disintegration, pulverizer, sampled envelope “convolution”, dynamic draw envelope/shape, interpolation-transitions and Hyper Vectorial pads they simplify the creation of incredible sound […]

What is it? Density is a new real-time software by Alessandro Petrolati designed especially for LIVE asynchronous granular synthesis and sound file granulation, a genuine granular playground able to generate a wide range of usual and not so usual effects: time/pitch shifting, time/pitch jittering, intricate textures, grain fountain/pulverizer, recording, and manipulation of buffers, complex scrub […]
