Fingermarks SoundDesign recently released Excursions, a bank of 150 presets for Steinberg's granular synth, Padshop Pro.
The emphasis is on experimentation and many sounds also incorporate vocal textures inspired by Luciano Berio's experimental vocal works. Several sounds have multiple variations created using an exploratory process in NI Kore 2. The majority of patches use the factory samples so anyone can load them; the exceptions use two user samples which are included; a speech sample and a Metasynth generated texture.
The bank is free for evaluation and casual playing from the Fingermarks website - there is a donation link for people to pay what they think it is worth if they like it and/or plan to use it in their music.
