What is it?
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 pad exploration, dynamic envelope shape drawing and many
more. Besides the basic tools, even more advanced tools are available to control the grains!
You have smooth transitions (interpolation) between global presets (snapshots), you can navigate with HyperVectorial pads or/and sequence your snaps using the “snap rhythm improviser” which provides an unique & powerful way to generate incredible sound phrases. The filter (24 band) provides an incredible spectral sculptor, through the Fibonacci/Harmonic/Geometric/Scalar band generation feature.
Like any good live-oriented tool, all widgets are controllable via MIDI and OSC protocol, easy to map and manipulate with your MIDI controller.
All is packed in an optimized visually sharp interface, easy to use and access when fast improvising live or lazy composing in a studio.
