Device Overview

Name/Version: CB Imperial Grains 1.1
Author: robertoattanasio  
Description: Clip Based Imperial Grains is a granular synthesizer taken from one of my standalone applications with an improved algorithm for the creation of amazing sound textures with a sample.

Bux Fix and Improvements in 1.1:
- Pitch Control;
- Link to Tempo toggle for Live Set.

- Granular synthesizer with Density and Grain Length parameters;
- Glue parameter used especially for textures,
- Random parameter to have a random position of grain;
- Every parameter can be automated;
- Grain Position is locked when Random Mode is enabled;
- Preset and sound embedded with Live Set.

You know, sometimes it's just nice to use a simple and very straight foward tool without 1000 parameters and knobs. This is what this device is all about! Neat, simple and it does the granulation it needs to. Pretty cool little grain tool for creating experimental sounds or weird textures on the fly! Thanks for sharing it.

PS: the only thing missing maybe, a pitch control. That's it!

Note: Imperial Grain makes my Live hangs forever (need to force quit) when I browse into my samples while using Imperial Grains with a very low Density (like 5, 6 to 7) combined with active Random.

This device is awesome! Good work, and thank you.

Hi, very useful device.

Any chance to have tempo synced density and grain lenght? Would be awesome.

Hello guys, maybe the problem of density is for the clock. Because 5 ms of density is very short. I'll try to fix it. I'm trying to implement pitch and tempo synced parameters. ;)

Simple and effective !

Thanks for sharing.
