Rigid Audio says that GRANULAT is their newest tool for cinematic sound design and rich, moving textures. It works by playing hundreds of small grains of audio and then shifting these in the sample range left or right. You can use the modwheel to alter that shift amount or use any of the 9 tables to quickly add complex movement to the built-in sounds.
A spokesperson told us, "The great thing about this technique is that you can freeze a sound at any position in the waveform. This also allows for great manual noise and FX sweeps where you can determine the speed of the transition."
GRANULAT comes with 170 cinematic instruments, ranging from hybrid strings, brass swells to acoustic bell-like textures and vocal atmospheres.
