Loomer releases Cumulus granular sampler (available with Computer Music 170)
Computer Magazine is featuring Cumulus by Loomer on the DVD of its latest edition.
Cumulus is a granular sampler which radically transforms sample content by breaking it into tiny slithers of audio called grains and reorganizing them to form new sounds.
Cumulus is capable of a wide ranges of timbres: from evolving atmospheric soundscapes; to organic physical textures.
Up to eight Scenes can be created; a Scene corresponding to a particular sample position and set of synthesis parameters. Scenes can be played in realtime via MIDI, or arranged internally using the built-in sequencer.
Cumulus for Windows, Mac and Linux (VST/AU/RTAS) is now available with Computer Music Magazine.
