Bastl Instruments has introduced microGranny 2.0, a monophonic granular sampler.
It reads wav samples from microSD card and applies granular algorithms to them. You can also adjust start, end, sample rate (tuned or free run), crush and envelope (attack release).
MIDI Input allows external control of all parameters as well as transposition of the samples, or playing individual grains by different keys.
- Monophonic mono sampler.
- MicroSD card (storing + recording samples, storing presets).
- 6 sounds with full adjustments storable in a preset at once.
