Granulizer

Granular synthesis software synthesizer
Granulizer

Granulizer is a granular synthesis software synthesizer intended for creative sound design.

It features a very versatile DSP engine that can go all the way from metallic crunch and grainy fuzziness to smooth reverb-like tones, spectral widening or chaotic soundscapes. The controls are deliberately kept few and simple, but you can get a great variety of really rich sounds with unusual harmonic content out of Granulizer.


Granulizer features:

  • High quality audio engine that performs time-stretching, pitch-shifting, granular resynthesis and spectrum manipulation
  • Grain Warping Engine with audio rate feedback modulation, that produces complex textures in parallel to the granular ones.
  • Diffusion effect for wide droney sounds (think spectral reverb)
  • Spectral Shaping
  • Frequency shifter for atonal variations
  • Control over subtle randomization of certain internal parameters ("Magic" knob)
  • Attack/Release envelope
  • Waveform view with loop selection
  • Minimal, clean UI


Requirements:

  • macOS 10.11 or greater
  • AU (audio unit) compatible host
  • Tested under Logic Pro X and Ableton Live


ChangeLog:

  • v.1.1.0
    • Bigger and improved  interface
    • Warp section for inharmonic experiments
    • Numerous bugfixes
    • CPU optimizations
  • v.1.0.1
    • Introduced macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) support
    • Streamlined the authorization naming between the plug-in and the website.
    • Numerous bugfixes that used to affect Logic Pro X at high plugin polyphony.
    • CPU optimizations and overall performance improvements.
    • Midi learn straight from the plugin GUI
