Product Overview

GRANULAT is our newest tool for cinematic sound design and rich, moving textures.
It works by playing hundreds of small grains of audio and then shifting these in the sample range left or right.

You can use the modwheel to alter that shift amount or use any of the 9 tables to quickly add complex movement to the built-in sounds.

The great thing about this technique is that you can freeze a sound at any position in the waveform. This also allows for great manual noise and FX sweeps where you can determine the speed of the transition.

GRANULAT comes with 300 cinematic instruments, ranging from hybrid strings, brass swells to acoustic bell-like textures and vocal atmospheres.

What you get:

What you get:

• 300 cinematic instruments

Each instrument has the modwheel pre-mapped to certain parameters. Most of the time you will be able to control the offset (shift) of the grain’s position.

The instruments are divided into the following categories:

• Bowed (20 instruments)

• Drone (12 instruments)

• Hybrid (35 instruments)

• Noises (18 instruments)

• Pad (42 instruments)

• Piano (11 instruments)

• Plucked (18 instruments)

• Rhythmic (18 instruments)

• Sweep (26 instruments)

• Texture (79 instruments)

• Vocal (21 instruments)

The update to v1.1 incorporates 20 custom designed IR (impulse response files) for the built-in convolution reverb engine. Also, you can now lock tables so that accidentally moving a knob won’t erase the current table data.

GRANULAT is absolutely lightweight on your machine’s resources. 
Its CPU hit is moderate and the loading of instruments is very fast.

Note that the CPU usage heavily depends on the amount of voices (grains) played at the same time. This varies from instrument to instrument and is controlled by the “SIZE” knob.

GRANULAT also features nine independently running sequencers and a basic FX section with reverb, delay and flanger. There is also a modulatable filter included that can be switched from lowpass to notch mode. This results in great phaser-like effects.

The sequencers in GRANULAT do always run and can instantly add motion to your sounds. If you don’t want to utilize the sequencers to control a certain parameter, simply use the knob on top of them to set a certain parameter to a chosen value - this will “erase” the sequencer and set all steps to the value of the knob.

• Low CPU and ultra low memory hit

• Fully automatable

• Instantly useable and inspiring sounds right at your fingertips

super complimentary library

This Library is a super compliment to my Steinberg Granular VSTis: quick and simple to use, small learning curve and after watching the video, I was sold!

Another enjoyable Rigid Audio product

Already upgraded to V1.1 with 251 presets. Paul nailed it: quick to learn and use. The parameter knobs are an unusual feature---useful and easy to use but their pattern-destroying feature takes some getting used to. Lots of quick-loading presets and amazing variation within the presets. I wanted to take away a star for lack of a randomizer feature but this thing is just too much of a bargain at the intro price. Rigid Audio treats you well on their website and I am a fan and supporter of their products---innovative, sound good, great value, and often just fun to use. Granulate is no exception.

Granular Madness

Rigid Audio now also has a Granular library for Kontakt and it sounds very well. If you like and need a lot of granular sounds this is a good starting point.
