Grain Scanner by Amazing Noises is a 10-voice polyphonic granular synth and re-synthesizer for Ableton Live. Here's how Ableton describes it...
Grain Scanner lets you design experimental noises, glitchy effects, alien textures and massive clouds of ambience. Its advanced sound engine turns any sample into a blank slate for otherworldly synth parts.
A 10-voice polyphonic granular synth and re-synthesizer, Grain Scanner chops samples into small slices, then re-arranges and plays them back in a multitude of ways. The result is sound that lives somewhere between the organic and the synthetic.
Grain Scanner is set up for intuitively creating evolving textures that change in complex and unpredictable ways. Its advanced granular engine can play up to 1000 microscopic slices of a sample simultaneously. A dedicated modulation page features four LFOs. Modulate each of the 10 voices individually or modulate the global parameters with up to four modulation sources at once. And its step sequencer and separate effects panel let you mould your sound even further.
The Pack comes with more than 100 presets to play with, and a database of dozens of source sounds ready to be bent, twisted and transformed. You can also import your own samples to create a completely personal sound. What’s more, Grain Scanner was made with Push and other keyboard controllers in mind, so you can easily start making melodies and harmonies with sounds you designed yourself.
