This new polyphonic granular synth and re-synthesizer by Amazing Noises is now available on Here's all the nitty gritty on this 10-voice synth.

Ableton today released Grain Scanner – a 10-voice polyphonic granular synth and re-synthesizer designed for experimental noises, glitchy effects, alien textures and thick clouds of ambience.

The heart of Grain Scanner is an advanced granular engine that can play up to 128,000 microscopic slices of a sample per second. Musicians can modulate each of the 10 voices individually with up to four LFOs or modulate the global parameters with all four modulation sources at once. A built-in step sequencer and separate effects panel provide further ways to bend and twist the sound.

This Pack includes more than 100 presets, as well as a database of dozens of source sounds ready to be transformed. It’s also possible to import user samples to create a completely personal aesthetic. Furthermore, Grain Scanner was made with Push and other keyboard controllers in mind, so it’s quick and easy to start making melodies and harmonies.

Price: USD 59 / EUR 49 / GBP 39
