GranuRise is Max Msp and Max for Live granular synth, based on a non-conventional creative synthesis and sample modules that enables immersive sonic interaction and lets you create complex morphing sound structures intuitively.
Thinking outside of a grid – based environment
Expressive interaction with the software
Semi-prepared generative structures with real-time interaction
Real-time audio processing and transformation
Control each grain independently | pitch, volume, filter…
Draw your own window function
More than 100 evolving layers & textures can create a final sound design
All layers as a sound source for the pitch transformation – without altering the speed of the sound
MIDI | MPE | Mira | Roli Blocks integration
Advanced preset recalling and morph options combined with the gesture feature
Complex sound design using your own gesture without complex matrices and advanced lfo settings
Edit | Module section
Preset | Morph section
Mixer | Master section
Granular | Spectra module
Releasing the waveform will start the seamless playback of your movement.
The gesture now becomes an expressive element in a live or sound design interaction.
The speed of your gesture acts as an LFO based on your movement.
Edit each grain-voice independently
Freely control the pitch | volume | filter of each of the 16 grains, giving you the potential to create complex sounds.
Granular Synth engine
samples as an FM carrier or modulator
Oscillator 1 – sine based
Oscillator 2 – saw based
Morph between the four oscillators with the gesture feature
Synthesized sample-based sound sources
The designed sound from all the sample-based modules can be used as a polyphonic voice for the synth engine.
Preset | Morph section
Store, recall & morph your waveform position & range and vast parameters within the edit-submodule section.
This results in interesting evolving semi-structured forms to interact within a live situation or sound design process.
The recall section includes a step sequencer, which recalls each preset based on the master tempo & note value.
In the morph section morph btw presets & automate this process with the gesture feature. Applying the gesture to the different edit-submodule sections creates some really complex and constantly evolving generative structures.
