ReasonInstruments & Effects Grain

Sample Manipulator

Grain uses every sound you’ve already got to make every sound you’d ever want. There’s dust in the wind, sands in the hourglass… and now grains in your samples.

Included in Reason+ Reason 12

Granular synthesis takes an entirely unique approach to sound generation by splicing and dicing samples into tiny grains which can be rearranged, repeated, stretched, partialized, and reconstructed to form entirely new sounds no other synthesis technology can approach. For shimmering evolving pads, for experimental juggling and glitch effects, for mood-setting sound design, Grain is peerless. But much more than that, Grain is fun!
