Important Note
The application can have some problems on Windows relating to the audio driver used. It is important to use an ASIO compatible soundcard, though the free ASIO4ALL driver may be a solution if you do not have one. You can download it here: http://www.asio4all.com/ There are some known issues with ReWire. It is recommended that users reinstall the latest version of ReWire before trying this driver out. Unfortunately if the application does not work in ReWire mode after installation, it is unlikely to do so using any other fixes.

The Generative application takes audio from an audio file or an external input (such as a microphone, guitar, or synthesiser) and transforms it in to an evolving soundscape using granular synthesis. There are four granular devices that each produce their own audio stream, allowing you to change their pitch, filter, and gain settings independently of the other devices. The application has a number of internal states which it fades between, producing a subtle and evolving variation of the output audio.

There are flexible options for recording the audio output of each granular device, or all devices combined. It is possible to record all devices with and without effects, as well as any external input audio. Many of the application's parameters are controllable via MIDI, and you can now play the application's devices as a four voice polyphonic granular synthesiser.
