The Tasty Chips GR-1 Granular Synth is one of the first hardware units to offer a Granular Synthesis Engine. Its ability to deconstruct samples into tiny slices and particles means there's a whole world of sonic mayhem and beauty to be discovered.
Its proven to be a popular concept as their Kickstarter campaign, raised an impressive €90,000 Euros last year. Since then the team at Tasty Chips have been working out the manufacturing process and finishing off the OS that runs on the unit.

The GR-1 is available for pre-order at the TastyChips.nl website priced at €849
