Strung : Granular vol.1
Strung is the first in our series of audio collection presets featuring granular synthesized sounds. This alluring collection of 50 presets is a godsend for serious producers on the hunt for unique, irreproducible sound forms.
INCREDIBLE SOUND SOURCE
We began by sampling from a hi-res string source in the form of electric guitars, rich in tonal character. These textures were profoundly moving on their own but were given a fresh quality when imported into Audio Damage’s Quanta. Our presets made for Quanta are more than ready to be stretched and manipulated in the way only granular synthesis allows.
TOTALLY YOUR OWN
Today’s producers and sound designers shrug off stock sounds as recognizable and irrelevant. The meaningful stories influential composers tell with sound cannot rely on the reproducible, whether it be for a 30 second commercial slot, a two hour cinematic journey, an otherworldly game, or a memorable indie pop production. With immediate note accessibility on any MIDI controller, composers of all kinds will find it takes just one touch of the key to tackle that twist in the plot line, or to reveal that underlying meaning inexpressible with words. Far-thinking modern pop creatives will discover an endless supply chain of sound for impulsive moods or ambiguous motives.
ORIGINAL AND EXPRESSIVE
Strung flourishes in a way that even the same preset gives and keeps on giving. Each of these presets begs to be further morphed into something personally interesting and uniquely yours. By taking expressive control of each note using a Sensel Morph controller with the Buchla Thunder overlay, you can “play” every note. MPE technology allows every iteration to be dimensionally altered in real time, resulting in a palette of truly expressive and suggestive sounds.
