Steinberg releases Padshop Pro - Granular Synthesizer for Win & Mac VST & AU

Steinberg Media Technologies has released Padshop Pro, a granular synthesizer that offers "extended capabilities that meet the demands of discerning sound designers".

Steinberg first released a basic version of Padshop in February of this year with the larger Padshop Pro already planned for professionals to delve deeper into the possibilities of granular synthesis.

"Padshop Pro excels through its easy and efficient way to control the many parameters involved in granular synthesis," commented Matthias Quellmann, product marketing manager at Steinberg. "And with the product variety that we have now introduced to Padshop, users are free to choose the degree of complexity that comes with this instrument."

Padshop Pro delivers two individual tiers in granular textures that are mixed and processed with a dozen high-quality filters, modulation and delay effects. Each layer consists of one oscillator for generating up to eight grain streams with innovative parameters, two LFOs that offer a choice of six wave shapes and two ADSR envelopes that can be applied to various sound parameters, therefore boasting a flexibility absolutely new to granular synthesis.

Offering more effects and more presets than in the basic version, Padshop Pro shines with a 3-band parametric EQ on each layer, the algorithmic reverb with dedicated equalization and 50 additional presets. Also included are sample import for user customizable sounds as well as VST backward compatibility and AU support.

  • Advanced granular synthesis engine with 2 independent layers and individual oscillator, edit and FX sections.
  • Up to 8 grain streams per oscillator for rich and spacious structures.
