Very interesting and quirky sound design tool. Its feature set is a little confusing at first to anyone familiar with granular effects, but after you kinda wrap your head around it (The youtube video on Björn Arlt's own channel really helped me out there) it reveals itself to be a very unique and intriguing box of tricks. What this thing won't do, however, is be your standard granular effect, for that, it'd be wise for you to keep moving on through your journey, though maybe you should grab this thing along the way, (it's free, after all).

It's good for what it does. Also uselful in an effect chain along with a multieffect processor like tantra.
