It’s pretty basic in operation and still sounds hard and glitch (very digital sounding granular) but ya, that’s what I’m looking at. They also have other great sampler options the OP might like more.
Yeah I agree with you, it’s not the best sounding granular sampler around. But its workflow is unique and easily leads to a creative path, especially with those loop points & parameters recordable gestures.
I do like Granite, but I rarely use it now that I have The Mangle. Its range seems fairly narrow; it's great for getting lush, modulated smears of sound quickly, but it's quite difficult to push it into spiky, fractured territory. Very much a tool tailored toward a specific sound rather than an open-ended, all-purpose granular machine to my mind.

Has OP considered looking at Padshop Pro? It's a tremendously powerful granular sampler. Waiting for it to go on sale here.

Polygon is superb too. Monophonic sadly. Although it was marketed and built as a sound effects machine, it works great on 'musical' material too. I quite like loading old classic rave samples into it to give the sounds a modern spin - you can really destroy things while still preserving a lot of the character.

I was watching that supposedly granular bliss video, and it only showed how to play with short loops. I found calling that granular synthesis an obviously false statement. Its a joke... Didn't sound interesting either...

Bliss never claimed to be granular to my knowledge. It claimed med to be a sampler to my understanding.

I was wondering the same thing. There's nothing granular into looping with a start and an end point. They indeed call it 'granular':

Interesting, I was doing the same thing with Hive... and indeed you can do the same with any synth with fast enough lfo’s. Granular gives yo the option to separate the grains and work with them independently.

Of course you could also load 6 different instances and have 6 different grains. Just depends on how much effort you want to put into it.
