Not sure what you did there in the last update, but BOOM! Everything is saved correctly and in the right place when re-opening the session. Thumbs up!

@synthesizerwriter: last update still have the Main & the two Nyquist parameters not saved and recalled in the Session. The others parameters seem to be saved.

Wow, this is a very unique & creative distortion tool! I really like it, I've never seen a 'spectral distortion' (if I can call it that way) neither, great work. I can already see lot of potential for experimental sound creation and sound design. One thing tough is that the parameters are not saved within the Live session When re-opening the session previously saved most of the parameters are not at the position they were. Could that be fixed? I don't wanna lose all those great sounds I have when closing my session!

Thanks again for this great & unique device.

This is an amazing tool for experimental soundscapes and other strange noises and sound sculpting. Lot of possibilities! I like it very much. I highly recommend to download and try it.

@RobertSchulz: do you think it could be updated in stereo instead or processing in mono? Also, only one Contour shape can be saved and recalled in a Live session. When re-opening a session, the other Contour shape is back to default. Do you think both Contour windows could be saved within the session?

Anyhow, great spectral shaping tool! And I hope you'll keep it updated :)

Thanks for sharing it.

@ KentaroSuzuki: good news! Very solid update and the GUI problems are gone, the Perlin noise work amazingly and automation parameters are in and working. Good job :)

Unfortunately, the last update (1.3) is unusable for be, visually it's totally broken with big white boxes in the place of the sliders. No sound neither. 1.2 was fine though. What happened?

@KentaroSuzuki: no problem. Please post it here and let us know when there's an update with the automation fix. Thank you very much! :)

Very unique granular tool! Never seen anything like it, combining like this granular and spectral convolution. Love it! Definitely a special tool for experimental sounds, textures and other weird noises. Thanks for sharing it.

Hello again KentaroSuzuki. I've found that the parameters & sliders are not available for automation in Live. Would it be possible to expose them and make them available for automation? Thanks again :)

@@KentaroSuzuki: thanks again for the quick fix! You got it this time, all settings all sliders correctly recalled when saved in Session. Well done!

Greatly underestimated granulator! Can't believe there's no comments about how good this thing is. Truly a gem for sculpting textures and all kind of sonic weirdness. I hope you'll keep updating it, with hopefully new features? I'd really love too have LP-HP-BP filtering per grains with a random knob for the grain filtering. Would be even more crazy! Anyhow, great great tool, thanks for giving it away :)

@KentaroSuzuki: Thanks for the quick response, but it seems semi-fixed. The Pitch seems to still moves and not be at the exact same position, especially when it is in the negative values. Did you try and test?

Great little granulator. Sounds very good! Love it. One thing I find pretty annoying though and I wish I knew before buying (warning to all future buyers here), is that the sliders are not saved and recalled in the Live session. Meaning that if I set the slider to particular values & save the Live session, they're not at the same position as they were when reopening the session. Could that be fixed? I think that would be great to add a lot to the value of this device. Other than that, great tool! :)

Thank you.

This device is crazy! Can't believe it doesn't have comments. It's one hell of a (secret) tool for weird digital ambient washes and soundscapes. It literally melts your sounds!

Hello!

Any news on the next update with the possibility to change the FFT size and the stereo feature? Would love to see this device updated and maintained! :)

Yes it does, thanks for the quick fix :)

Also, noticed that drawn curves are not saved and recalled, when re-opening a session the curves are back to default. Could that be fixed?

Thank :)

Cool spectral tool for severely mangly audio. Drawing curves & exponent knob works fine, but strangely I can' hear nor perceive any change in the sound when I use change the Window Size & move the Window Overlap knob, both doesn't see to work or I'm crazy??

Thanks for the audio posted! Interesting device, no doubt. I'm a bit concern with the clicks/static tiny noises we constantly hear in the example, the granular processing doesn't sound very smooth. Is that intentional?

@Simulations: any way to upload some audio or/and video demos? I'm sure that'll help your sells...

Looks interesting. But any audio demos so we can listen to the results before buying blindly?

? = '

Dont know what happened here lol.

I bought this device and let me tell you all this: it’s really an amazing device! Very well done and designed, super easy to see what’s going on/what you do and more importantly, sounds great! I love the fact that you can use it without any audio input, as a spectral synthesis sound generator. The perfect replacement directly in my DAW for Metasynth and Photosounder that are offline/standalone software. Good job Will, I love it! I recommend this device to anyone interested into experimental & unorthodox sound design.

Very interesting device! I'm looking for an alternative similar to the spectral room from Metasynth that is usable in Live instead of working offline, and this device seems quite nice. Question before buying though: does the image loaded is recalled in a saved session? Or I have to reload the image each time?

@stevenspencer2008: how do you like the IR's? High quality stuff? I think I'll dive and buy them, they seem very interesting and experimental, which is what I an looking for. But I was just curious to see if you like them... Thanks!

Downloaded the latest Hourglass update a min ago and tried it... It works! Didn't see that you updated Hourglass. Thanks for that :)

Thanks for the replies guys. Pretty weird eh?

I have Max 7.3.4 and the latest Ableton 9.7.4. Everything seems up do date on my side...


Just like the Houglass granulator, I can't get any sound out of it. No idea why...I see the waveform passing into the buffer, but no sound is coming out even with the mix knob to the max. OSX 10.12 - Ableton 9.7.4.

Any idea why??

Never been able to get sound out of it, even with the Mix knob all the way up. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but I played with all parameters and still no sound even if I see the waveform in the buffer. Any idea why? A quick youtube tour & tutorial would probably help the users...

Fantastic! That was fast. Thanks alot for updating it with the stereo output. I will re-download it as soon as I have some time today. Really like this little grain mangler, sounds and feels unique! Thanks again for sharing.

Pretty cool granular device! It definitely has some great potential, especially for strange textures and weird experimental stuff. But I think what really hurts it though is that its output is mono. Make the whole thing sound low quality and cheap. I really thing that if the output was full stereo, it would make it sound much better. Could it be possible to have a stereo spread of the grains?

Seems interesting, but a bit an hassle to setup. Too bad. I couldn't pass the first step: ''Show/hide osc settings with the toggle at the bottom of the device. Your monome should auto-detect.'' Mine doesn't show anything, it's ''None''. I gave up...

Fantastic granular device! Clean, simple and sounds ultra smooth. Very powerful for creating textures of all sort. Well done! Love it.

There's no way I can record or 'grab' audio in this device. No matter how much I click on the grab button, it doesn't record anything. Dead silence...

Great device! Very mellow, smooth feedback. Great to add background atmosphere or even create drones when used in full wet. Thanks!

Nuts!!!!! What a crazy whack device. And free? Thanks so much for giving that one away. Very appreciated!

Amazing little granular synth! Different, and fresh. So many granular synths are sample based, so it's really nice to use something a bit different. Well done, love it.

Regarding suggestions, how about applying the filter per grain instead of having the filter at the end of the chain, therefore colouring the overall sound equally? Filtering per grain would open even more doors to creativity, especially if you have a random parameter. Each grain having their own filtering... The granular tool in AudioMulch is working that way. Very fun and creative.

Thanks again for this great device!

*Typo, please read:
''Right now we can ear the back and forth jitter.''

Sorry. Damn we need an edit button on these posts! ;)

Thanks for this interesting grain device. It's pretty cool, even if some of the parameters are not very intuitive. I really hope you're going to improve it and upload more versions, it really has some potential for granular experiments. Few suggestion:

-having a random jitter. Right now we hear hear the back and for jitter. Could be cool to have a really random jitter.

-more extreme pitch values

-a random pitch for each grains

Please keep working on it! I like it.

Thanks again.

Nothing comes out of the this thing here… Tried and turned all knobs, nothing.

Very experimental, wild and gives totally unpretictible results, that's fantastic! Thanks for sharing.

I can't get any sound out of this thing, no matter what I tweak or click

''secretion'' lol! Damn auto corrector… ''SECTION'', of course… ;-)

Ok, but why is it in the effect secretion again? Shouldn't be in experimental or utility?


Silence here, doesn't seem to work when the Wet is at the max. Nothing, no matter the parameters.

Thanks for this superb free device! Again, good work :)

Seems like a very interesting device. But $25 for just once single effect, really? Sorry but I'll pass, too bad cause it seems pretty nice :-(

Who's Deadmau5 ?

Very cool device, really. I love it. Check you mail! (at ehsan.ziya@gmail.com)

Thanks.

Working great! Pretty cool resonator, well done :)

I am the only one not getting any sound out of this ting? No matter what params I tweak, nothing seems to happen and it's muted... ?

No matter what I do or what parameters I tweak, there's nothing coming out of this thing. How is it supposed to work!??

on my side I've been your other devices alot (Mirror Maze in particular) and the color scheme never been a problem with the dark skin I use.

Anyway keep up the good work, I'll keep following your future device developments and keep supporting your devices.

Cheers.

Amazing mangling tool. I really love it, you really can transform incoming audio into something totally new & synthetic. I'm a electroacoustic/experimental sound artists and this device is going to be part of my main arsenal for sure. Good work, I like all your devices so far :)

Cheers

BTW: I use a very dark custom Live skin and I have no problem reading the device here. All good, so...

Stunning device. Surreal soundscapes & drone guaranteed!
