This is a granularizing block built with primary components, augmented with coding in core to be block and rack-ready. The effect accepts stereo input and has inputs for key-pitched notes and freezing segments of incoming audio. It has available ABC mod Inputs, a mod bypass, and a power switch to send a dry-sound on-the-fly. Grain loops can be scanned in 4 different modes (linear/ exponential/ logarithmic/sine curve).

This is has been a block that has been more or less finished for a while now but I've had found it difficult to find the motivation and time to get it ready for consumption.

I have a more extensive version of this effect based on the primary cloud granulizer, gauging from reaction to this upload I may or may not upload that one.

A lot of work went into preparing this block for public consumption. If you feel so inclined please feel free to send a donation to:

This is a great little block! Crystal-clear granulation of dropped samples or real-time inputs. This takes ordinary or familiar ensembles into new dimensions/ from Model-T to Hotrod. Love the pitch/mix setup which allows doubling/offset voicing of a mono signal. Having a pure "Wet" signal (which sounds GREAT!) allows modulation of instruments lacking this option. AND a bypass for the lot! Thanks for sharing, you must be the bane of the NI beancounters Joey Valizan (but if OC you CAN donate, you SHOULD) - one to watch! ...

You create some of the coolest granulators Joey! CirrusGRAIN is a monster granulator and is my absolute no.1 favorite. Keep spoiling us :)
