General Features:

  • Loads WAV files.
  • Supports MIDI CCs.
  • Syncs to tempo.

Pseudograins is composed of 4 main components:

Main Loop:

  • Forward/Reverse main loop sample playback.
  • Slices - The number of divisions in the main loop. Each of these slices are represented in the sequencer.
  • ADSR [enable/disable] - sends each slice thru an envelope.
  • Speed Control [min/max] - controls the speed at which the main slices are played back. Negative values cause playback of main slices to reverse.

Sub Loop:

It works just as above with the exception that it processes individual slices generated in the main loop. Setting a high sub slice value will cause a pseudo granular effect, as you are dividing a single slice into an a much smaller looping sub slice. You can use it to maintain pitch, but timestretch the hell out of a sample. Larger sub slice values can be used to create stutters or general repetitions here and there.


The sequencer is HEX based (0-9,A-F) - you can arrange these slices in any order you want. You can juggle a drum loop, chop a vocal into prefuse 73 stutters. The sync mode and quantize will further effect how the sequencer steps thru the main loop slices.

There are 4 sequence lanes label A-D. You can trigger these live to switch sequences during playback.

[Sequencer Sync Modes]:

  1. None - As soon as a slice is played, it moves to the next position in the sequencer. It will return to the beginning once all steps in the text string are exhausted.
  2. FreeRun - You are synced to host tempo, but it plays thru the list, returning to the beginning once all steps are exhausted.
  3. Locked - GlitchBitch is synced to host tempo, the number of step played is based on the Quantize (below).
  4. Quantize - determines the number of steps when syncing to host using FreeRun/Locked.
    8 - will play 8 steps, synced to 1/8ths in the host.
    16 - will play 16 steps, synced to 1/16ths in the host.
    32 - will play 32 steps, synced to 1/32nds in the host.
    64 - will play 64 steps, synced to 1/64ths in the host.


Snapshots are used to recall all parameter settings instantly. This is how you begin making things a bit more musical, as you can switch parameters instantly to focus on different sounds.
