Understanding - Granular Synthesis / 1177

Granular Synthesis

View Course

So you’ve heard of Granular Synthesis and you may well have used Granular Synthesis in your tracks but do you know what’s actually going on when you hear that distinctive sci-fi or ambient sound it can produce?

Well, look no further as synth royalty King Unique is back to take an in-depth look at where it all started, what’s happening to the audio, and the terminology used, so you can master this epic form of synthesis to get sounds unavailable elsewhere to use in your tracks.

Once you’ve got to grips with Granular, you can create some amazing effects or merge it with your more recognised subtractive synth sounds to create unique patches that will raise your sound design bar up a notch.

Check it out!

Sadly, yet again, no subtitles :frowning: When will people learn to cater for a wider audience?

Waldorf Iridium is one of the hardware synths that has a very interesting implementation of granular, and the touch screen lets you play with the parameters, although, admittedly, the knobs give you better control…

Another awesome course from King Unique
