New Sonic Arts Granite
New Sonic Arts has announced the release of Granite, a new Granular Synthesizer VST instrument plug-in for Windows.
Granite is a granular synthesizer which is particularly suited for generating evolving, organic textures and atmospheres, but is also capable at creating dark bass tones and loop processing.
Granite's sound is said to be highly dependent on the input material, but the grain engine parameters have been refined and scaled to allow transformation of any material in a fast and musical way, the company says.
Most parameters can be modulated with the internal movement recorders, in addition to being controllable by host automation and MIDI CCs.
A demo version (no saving) is available for free download for Windows XP or higher, including a range of demo sounds.
Pricing &AvailabilityIt's available now for €60.
