Robert Henke releases Granulator II for Max For Live

Robert Henke has released Granulator II, a free Max for Live synthesizer based on the principle of quasi-synchronous granular synthesis.

Granulator II
The Granulator II instrument for Max For Live & Ableton Live 9.

It creates a constant stream of short crossfading sections of the source sample, and the pitch, position and volume of each grain can be modulated in many ways to create a great variety of interesting sounds.

Granulator II also offers two multimode filters in series to further shape the resulting timbre. Granulator II is the latest incarnation of a series of granular based synthesizers I wrote for my own usage since the invention of MaxMSP in 1997.

The instrument is a free download (CC BY-NC 3.0 license).

SoundLove releases Neutron Rack Extension for Reason

SoundLove has released the Neutron particle accelerator creative Rack Extension effect for Propellerhead Reason.

SoundLive Neutron
The Neutron RE features a sound buffer and a particle emitter.

Neutron is a creative effect that brings basic granular synthesis to the Reason rack. Neutron can transform sound into harsh grit, pops, and clicks, and chop sound into small staccato pieces. But it can also blend several seconds of sound into a single continuous, slowly evolving, mushy soundscape.

Neutron is capable of creating a huge range of widely different effects that are difficult to achieve with the Legacy devices in Reason, and tweaking its controls often yield surprising and delightful results.

Neutron is available to purchase for 29 EUR.

Particular releases Spectrality – Temporal Impulses

Particular has launched the Spectrality – Temporal Impulses sample library.

Particular Spectrality Temporal Impulses

Particular paint the world in color with Spectrality – Temporal Impulses; convolution patterns of granular mashups, twisted harmonic delays and modulation madness. Suitable for just any style craving fantasy and otherworldlyness – but for that extra fit, slap them onto something electronic.

Created by plucking very short sounds on pianos, plastic buckets and windows to old fashioned synthesizers and guitars, sent through a diverse range of effects and then through some analogue goodness on it’s way back. The result ranges from beautiful harmonic shimmerings to plain weirdness, and all in between.

The tempo might and might not, entirely depending on the material send into it, set boundaries to where the impulses belong. In fact, some files actually find you pockets of niceties in your groove if you really set out to misuse them from tempo perspective. Inherent pitch in the impulses is a different matter. Total alignment in pitch might cause recursive feedback – so watch your speakers – as well as just the right amount of dissonance might sound awesome!

In detail expect to find 254 impulses in 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 130 bpm:s, all in all summing up to 573 MB of 48 kHz 24 bit wavefiles.

The sample library costs £24.95 GBP.
