The idea of this instrument is to take something beautiful and transform into something else with the proper tools, keeping the maximum sound quality possible. For this reason, despite its apparent simplicity, it implements many under the hood adjustments like per-grain custom windows, anti-phasing techniques and synchronized time/rate/densities between the grains. Granular synthesis is actually awesome when you can’t actually distinguish between the single grains… and the whole result appears like a new designed sound!
It also features a custom scripted ADSR, time synced LFO and an advanced mapping system for creating complex organic textures and many different playing modes to reinterpret the material of the sample in lots of different ways.
Moreover, the library features a very simple way to import your own samples, so that you can create your personal library of TimeDropped sounds!

Very unique instrument that generates ethereal sounds.
Time Drops is quite unlike any other instrument I have. It takes it comes with a series of WAV files (and you can import your own) and then makes pad/ambient sounds out of them. Unlike other methods I've seen, which simply slow the source sound down and add reverb, this one actually takes little "pieces" of the source and blends them together, which can have some very beautiful and eerie effects that are hard for a listener to identify.The only downside to it is that using your own WAVs requires you to put the ones you can in a directory, and it has a limited amount of them, as opposed to being able to import a bunch and then use them whenever you want.Still, very valuable tool here.
