Please find below a detailed description of all the parameters of the granular module. I will also add this to the manual today.
Sel: You can load any WAV sample using the select encoder and the Load button.
GrCo: grain frequency coarse (in hz) determines how fast the grains are triggered for playback , in hz.
GrFi: grain frequency fine (in hz) determines how fast the grains are triggered for playback , in hz.
Start: start of grain selection window. The start and length parameters lets you choose a
window from which grains are randomly selected for playback at the grain frequency.
Lgth: length of grain selection window. The start and length parameters lets you choose
a window from which grains are randomly selected for playback at the grain frequency.
GrDur: length of the grains (in ms). Using the grain duration parameter, it is possible to
blend the grains together or isolate them more (this works together with the grain frequency).
Tune: tuning of the grains, in cents (-1200 … +1200). Using the Tune parameter, it is
possible to tune the sound up or down +/- 1200 cents. This is useful when layering sounds
which differ in pitch, so they can be made to be in tune.
Lvl: The level parameter is used to adjust the output level of the granular processor.
Depending on the grain duration and frequency, when a lot of grains are mixed together, the
output might clip, so this parameter can be used to adjust the output to avoid clipping the
signal. You can keep an eye on the output scope when inside the granular processor screen
to make sure it’s not clipping.
NrGr: upper limit for number of grains that can be triggered. Using the number of grains
parameter, it’s possible to limit the number of grain voices that are available. By setting
this to a low value grains that are playing back will be interrupted by new grains which start
playing. By setting the value high (e.g. 800) it’s possible to play a lot of grains together
to create a dense texture. With the amount of grains active, the CPU usage goes up as
well. Setting the parameter to a high value does not mean that the grains will be used, that
depends on the grain frequency and duration. The number of grains parameter just sets an
Crse: frequency (pitch) of the sample, coarse (in hz).
Fine: frequency (pitch) of the sample, fine (in hz).
Rand: randomization factor for grain start time and grain duration. Using the random
setting, it’s possible to blend between randomization of grain start time (which is derived
from the grain frequency) and randomization of grain duration.
