A simple granular drone machine
A simple drone machine, with two parallel granulators and serial filters with numerous controls for variation.
The signal path is: uno & dos (granulators) > Filter 1 > Filter 2 > Amp.
Scan controls add periodic variation (sine wave LFO). Jitter controls add random variation (random LFO). Note: the position.scan and rate controls affect the position slider in a not-always-predictable way.
Because of file size limitations, this is the EMPTY version, without any samples or snapshots. Import your own recordings and waveforms to explore a wide range of granular and pulsar synthesis (for the latter, I recommend Jovica’s basic waveform packs from http://www.freesound.org/search/?q=basic+wave+jovica).
Download the FULL version with sample recordings and snapshots, which demonstrate a small range of possible tone colors and textures, from http://www.nofi.org/2012/04/29/melton-drone-granular-04-reaktor-ensemble/
Listen to 30 second previews of the snapshots as well as several extended personal examples at http://soundcloud.com/nofi/sets/melton-drone-granular-04
These are still works-in-progress, so please share your snapshots and any feedback with me. Details, separate download files and the CC license can be found at http://www.nofi.org/2012/04/29/melton-drone-granular-04-reaktor-ensemble/
