Klavis tell us that Grainity, their digitally-controlled full-analog granular + multimode VCF, as seen in our Superbooth coverage, is finally out and ready to ship. This is what they have to say about it...
The Grainity brings a unique and never-heard-before concept to the world of analog VCF. While being based on analog filtering only, the Grainity expands and enriches the sound in creating subharmonics, harmonies, unison, flanging effects and formant filtering all at once.
The module presents two sections, the granular filter itself and a typical multimode filter, each with its own output. A third output offers a mix of both filter paths. Numerous controls and CV allow a very wide palette of results.
