The sound-relevant parameters Position, Size, Pitch, Desity and Texture can be voltage controlled ."Position" selects from which part of the audio buffer the grains are picked. "Density" controls how many grains are generated: in 12h position no grains, clockwise random grains will be seeded and counterclockwise grains with constant rate but increasing overlap. "Texture" morphs through different grain envelopes and beyond 3h-position a diffusor smears transients.
In extreme settings of the density and texture parameters four variations of granular processing algorithms are activated, see quickstart manual.
The voltage controlled blend parameter has four selectable mods:
- dry/wet: bland between original audio material and processes signal.
- crossfade/rotation: continously swaps panorama position of the L+R signals. Left channel is crossfaded to right output and vice versa.
- feedback: parameter controls amount of feedback
- reverb: the parameter adjusts reverb amount
A trigger at the trigger input seeds exactly one grain, which allows for synchronizing the module's behaviour with LFOs or clocks.
Up to four "frozen" snapshots of the audio buffer can be saved and recalled.
