Find a sound, then draw patterns over it and listen to the results!!! Crazy…

Soundgrain is a graphical interface where users can draw and edit trajectories to control granular sound synthesis

Use a sound that you have recorded, then either draw over it, or apply some of the circles or other trajectories over it.  Listen to the results, and adjust for more variation. Add an effects ball…weird and wonderful results.

Getting Started

Getting sound with Soundgrain is easy:

– Load a soundfile on the drawing surface (Menu -> File -> Open Soundfile…)
– Draw a granulator trajectory on the drawing surface using the mouse
– Activate the audio by clicking on the “Start” button.

At this point you should be hearing sound.

After that, you can explore by drawing more trajectories (of different kind), playing with the granulator controls (Menu -> File -> Open Granulator Controls) or with the effect balls (Menu -> FxBall). You can record the generated sound to the disk using the “Record Settings” section at the bottom of the control panel.
