Granite is a granular synthesizer particularly capable at generating evolving, organic textures, atmospheres and soundscapes. However, Granite offers a vast range of transformation possibilities, and can generate a wide range of sounds and extensively processed loops.
Featuring a compact and intuitive interface, and an engaging workflow including innovative Motion Recorders recorders and Cycle Modulators, Granite can operate as a free-running sound generator, or as a playable MIDI instrument. Virtually all parameters can be controlled via MIDI CC and host automation.

It will be short. A time ago I was inspired by some people's enthusiasm relating to granular synthesis. So I decided to dive in that area and Ive found out that theres almost no "Grand"-products on the market. When you're looking for some information on the most popular products, you are usually addressed to very experimental projects like CDP (composers desktop project), which is actually a very complex product, so IMO definitely not the first one to learn get used to the granular synthesis mechanism. On occasion Ive found Granite, diving deeper in demo version left me no doubt, it is a thing to have. A swiss-army-knife of granular in a very simple form. Its a pleasure to use it. The developer deserves support, everything is beautiful and effective. Nothing to say more, you better go check it.Read more
