New Sonic Arts has announced the release of Granite, a granular synthesizer instrument for Windows.

Granite is a granular synthesizer which is particularly suited for generating evolving, organic textures and atmospheres, but is also surprisingly capable at creating dark bass tones and loop processing.

Granite’s sound is highly dependent on the input material, but the grain engine parameters have been carefully refined and scaled to allow complete transformation of any material in a fast and musical way.

Most parameters can be modulated with the innovative internal movement recorders, in addition to being controllable by host automation and MIDI CCs.

Granite is available to purchase for Windows PC (Standalone/VST), priced at $60 USD. A demo version is available from the New Sonic Arts website (saving disabled) .
