Open Source Granular Workstation

Puremagnetik develops Grainstation-C with optional ambisonics      02/08/19

Puremagnetik’s Micah Frank has published an open source performance workstation designed to build realtime, evolving sound sculptures  - with optional ambisonics.

Harnessing the audio processing power of Csound, Grainstation-C seamlessly integrates with a Novation LaunchControl XL Mark 2 (easily modifiable for any other controller) and can processes 4 disk tracks and 3 live input streams.

You can save any state as a snapshot and morph to that snapshot at any point in a performance. It has 6 independent pitch delay lines, 6 switchable low pass and high pass filters, live audio looping and multiple granular processing controls including granular time-stretching, frame animation and granular pitch shifting.

Frank built the program to farm textures and granular structures for his latest album Quetico - out now on Puremagnetik Tapes. With this work he has recently been awarded a 2019 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship in Music and Sound from The New York Foundation for the Arts.

Minimum Requirements for Grainstation-C
• OSX 10.8 or Windows 10 x64
• Csound 6.1
