Granular Worlds for Steinberg's Padshop Pro contains 105 presets making use of 1.8 Gigabyte of exceptional samples mostly created exclusively for this soundset. All samples were produced in 48 kHz / 24-bit / stereo, the acoustic sounds and instruments in this library were recorded in L-C-R using 3 high quality Neumann mics. The electronic samples were produced with an array of soft- and hardware synths and FX-processors.
This soundset covers a wide range of expressively playable sounds ranging from huge cinematic soundscapes, warm and mellow pads, dark and haunting drones, real and unreal percussion instruments, tempo-synced sequences and loops to more bizarre experimental sounds, ethereal textures and beautiful instrumental sounds derived from flute, guitar, bowed/plucked strings and Okarina recordings. Some field recordings, glass and wood sounds, harmonically playable plastic tubes, Kalimba as well as vocal samples also found their way into this soundset.
The 141 wav-samples in this set are not locked or encrypted so they can be used in any other sampler or directly in the DAW of your choice.
The 105 presets are categorized in five folders:
- Instrumental. (13).
- Pads and Drones. (30).
- Percussive. (9).
- Sequenced. (11).
- Soundscapes. (29).

All patches have the Modwheel assigned and often make use of Aftertouch and velocity control to add expressiveness and musicality.
