Postby Neon Breath; Wed May 16, 2018 9:31 am Puremagnetik Granule

For anyone interested, here’s a new granulator I didn’t see mentioned here yet.

No demo and the sound example is pretty basic and not that impressive, to my ears at least. I don’t think it can compete against some other granulator plugins outhere, but it’s fairly cheap at least ($20)

So maybe some of you will be interested.

'Granule is a granular delay processor designed to glitch, bend and tweak your audio into strange worlds of robotic sci-fi. Inspired by the Red Panda Particleguitar pedal it takes incoming signal and chops it up into tiny "grains". After chopping your audio, these particles are routed through a looper, spectral pitch shifter and variable delay line. From there, you rearrange the grains, stretch them, morph them and create everything from marvelous shimmering pads to completely ludicrous glitch effects!'

I’m on Puremagnetik’s Century bundlr, so I just downloaded it last night. Haven’t had a chance to play with it yet.

Will report back later. :)

I emailed Puremagnetik about a demo and Micah Frank replied to confirm there's none and there's no plan neither.

So it's a hit or miss with this one. You try and hope you like, until we have better user reviews or more videos & audio examples.

Micah from Puremagnetik emailed me back to inform me that he has posted a video of Granule, on the product page. Or here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... 46nIYCDFyw

Ok, so I finally got around to playing with Granule.

First complaint is that the GUI is pretty tiny on 1440p resolution. So if you've got a fancy large Retina display (4k-ish), the text explanations for the parameters would be nearly unreadable. And the knobs would probably be really tiny.

In terms of the overall sound, it seems to specialize in really wacky effects with the Re-Pitching paramter. It's supposed to be inspired by the Red Panda Particle pedal. It's sort of there, by my estimation, but the plugin seems to be on the more extreme end of that vibe. (It can do some really bizarre stuff).

If this were being sold separately outside of the Spark membership, I'd say your money would be better spent on something like Audiority Grainspace if you need a granular modulation effect. Not exactly the same thing (granular delay vs. granular reverb), but overall I think the Audiority take is much more versatile and could make its way into more genres and applications.

Just my $0.02. :D
