Our goal for this new update was to take GrainFlux to the next level and add new features (such as the new modes, Center parameter, Multi-Stage envelope, Filter FM, etc) that would allow the user to create even more interesting timbres and sounds.

Changes in GrainFlux v2.0

  • 6 new modes: Regular, Inverted, Alternate, Ringmod, Min/Max and Max/Min.
    • Regular: Wave 1 and Wave 2 are mixed together normally.
    • Inverted: Wave 1 and 2 are mixed together while Wave 2’s phase is flipped 180º.
    • Alternate: Alternates between Wave 1 and Wave 2.
    • RingMod: Wave 1 is multiplied by Wave 2.
    • Max/Min: positive part from Wave 1 + negative part from Wave 2.
    • Min/Max: negative part of Wave 1 + positive part from Wave 2.
  • ANew Center parameter: modifies how the modes operate in different ways depending on the mode.
  • Added a new Multi-Env mode to Envelopes 1 and 2. The user has the option to select which mode he/she would like for each of the envelopes independently (ADSR or Multi-Env).
  • New post-VCA effect: Karplus. Karplus uses the a very short delay line that can be used to add subtle reflections or a longer metallic “tail” to the sound.
  • Added enhancements to LFO: new Phase, Reset, and Shape controls.
  • Re-designed Filter modulation engine to be more flexible and precise.
  • Added Filter FM with selectable modulation source (Bass Oscillator or Grain Wave).
  • Added MIDI Velocity as a modulation source for the Filter’s Cutoff.
  • Fixed the range and scale of the Bass Boost and Grain Wave knobs to work in dB (instead of linear gain).
  • Changed the scale of all Modulation knobs as well as the Pre-Drive and Feedback knobs to 0-100%.

GrainFlux is available for purchase for $14.99 USD. GrainFlux customers will receive the new 2.0 update for free via email.
