Patchpool has announced it is now taking pre-orders for Granular Worlds, a soundset for the Padshop Pro software synthesizer by Steinberg.
Granular Worlds for Steinberg’s Padshop Pro will contain about 100 presets making use of about 2 Gigabyte of exceptional samples mostly produced exclusively for this soundset. Additionally I will also use selected samples from the large pool of samples produced for various of my soundsets over the last years. All samples are produced in 48 Khz / 24 Bit.
The sounds in this set will cover a wide range of expressively playable sounds ranging from huge cinematic soundscapes and warm pads to more bizarre experimental sounds and ethereal textures. Also I will use a lot of samples generated by acoustic instrument like woodwinds, brass, string instruments and Okarina. Field recordings, various objects, glass sounds and vocal samples will also find their way into these granular worlds.
All patches will have the Modwheel assigned and I’ll make use of Aftertouch whenever a sound needs some extra expressiveness.
Granular Worlds is scheduled for release for Windows and Mac (.vstpreset/.aupreset) in mid August 2012, priced 30 EUR. The soundset is now available to pre-order at 25 EUR, 20% off regular.
