Introducing a powerful granular effect for real time processing of audio signals with pitch-shifter and delay. With GRAINSHIFT you can select the position and length of grains that you get from the incoming signal, as well as the playback direction of grains that can be pitch-shifted and mixed with the dry signal.
Grain size has a range from 0-800ms and the size of grains can be relative to tempo. Grains can also have random size variations. Density can be adjusted to vary the overlap between grains from 0 to 4X. Grains can be quantized to a beat grid. One of the unique features of this granular effect is that grains can be played back in Forward, Reverse and Random modes for each grain.
The pitch of grains can be shifted up to ±2 octaves. Grains can be subtracted with an alternative pitch.
With PAN settings, grains can have pan for each grain which can also be randomized.
A major function of the device’s architecture is the DELAY section. It adds a more flexible and complex solution to work with grains. The Delay has Time options (seconds or synced to beats), randomised grain position in the delayed signal and feedback from grain to the delay input.
The Granular effect stores the incoming audio in its internal buffer and splits it into short pieces (grains) which are then processed with delay, pan, pitch shifting and can be played in various ways.
