Bastl Instruments Microgranny 2 puts big granular sound in a small package
Granular synthesis has helped a variety of artists express themselves in unconventional ways, whether you prefer Iannis Xenakis or Arca. The 2nd generation of Bastl's classic reads wav samples from a microSD card and sends them into the universe of granular algorithms. The minimal user interface of the classic, equipped with a new PCB case and fresh knobs and buttons, makes things accessible and offers many different ways of playing at the same time. The microGranny adds to your musical gear without fuss - with MIDI input, all parameters and sample transposition can be fully controlled externally, and individual grains can be played using different buttons. Stability has been greatly improved, making it impossible for the unit to get stuck in any mode. The inspiring 8-bit box is based on Arduino and thus is also hackable.
