Sagrada: Sample Accurate Granular Synthesis

 

Sagrada is an open-source Max package performing sample-accurate granular synthesis in a modular way. Grains can be triggered both synchronously and asynchronously. Each grain can have its own effects and eveloppes (for instance the first “attack” and last “release” grains of a grains stream).

You can get it from the Github repository:

sagrada.play~ will play grain synchronously or asynchronously (click for video demo)
Sagrada multilayers
sagrada.multilayer~ allows for running multiple streams of grains in parallel (click for video demo)

Sagrada was partly developed during my PhD at LAM. It was inspired by the very good GMU tools developped at GMEM (and its sample-rate triggering) and the FTM package developed at IRCAM (and its modularity). Not to mention all of Curtis Roads’ work on granular synthesis.
